Who we are
Our website address is: https://templeofara.net.
The web site is owned by the Temple of Ara and managed by Elder Priestess Linda Maglionico. Our contact information is: TempleofAra.NYC@gmail.com
What personal data we collect and why we collect it
When visitors leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.
Email Sign Up Forms
If you sign up for email communication or enroll in our free training series, your name and email address will be imported into our email database on Mailchimp. We occassionally send out promotional emails to announce our full moon rituals, enrollment in our training programs as well as encourage enrollment in our membership family. We don’t sell or rent our database. We also don’t do any snail mail direct mailers.
If you submit a comment through our contact form, we keep contact form submissions for about a year for customer service purposes, but we do not use the information submitted through them for marketing purposes. You will have to fill out an email sign up form.
If you leave a comment on our site you may opt-in to saving your name, email address and website in cookies. These are for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for one year.
If you have an account and you log in to this site, we will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.
When you log in, we will also set up several cookies to save your login information and your screen display choices. Login cookies last for two days, and screen options cookies last for a year. If you select “Remember Me”, your login will persist for two weeks. If you log out of your account, the login cookies will be removed.
If you edit or publish an article, an additional cookie will be saved in your browser. This cookie includes no personal data and simply indicates the post ID of the article you just edited. It expires after 1 day.
Embedded content from other websites
Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.
Who we share your data with
We do use third party services such as MailChimp, PayPal, Stripe and Teachable. If you enroll in any of our offerings, they will store your data. PayPal and Stripe are our current payment gateways. But other than that, we share your data with nobody – no one – no where – not ever.
How long we retain your data
If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.
For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.
What rights you have over your data
If you have an account on this site, or have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes. Hopefully we will be able to figure out how to comply with your request.
Where we send your data
Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.
Your contact information
If you have concerns over your privacy, you can email Linda at TempleofAra.NYC@gmail.com. We suggest as well that you don’t enroll in any of our programs or events, or sign up for our emails. You’re more than welcome to revisit this web site to keep abreast of what we have going on.
If someone somehow manages to breach our third party services and gains access to your data, we will notify you as soon as we are notified.
