Privacy Policy

1. OUR COMMITMENT TO PRIVACY

Your privacy is important to us. Fortify is designed to be a self-directed and interactive learning experience that you can pursue anonymously in your home or office. We are committed to maintaining confidentiality in every phase of our relationship with you as you seek more lasting freedom from pornography.  


This privacy policy outlines the treatment of information collected by the Fortify platform, the Fortify app and associated communities (on the joinfortify.com website or accessible through its app). Protecting your private information is a high priority, with technology used on this site specifically designed to protect your right to privacy. Please understand, however, that whenever you voluntarily disclose personal information online this information cannot be made 100% secure and, in some cases, that information may be intercepted, collected and used by others. That being said, we follow very high, industry-standard practices of data security to protect your information.


By using the Fortify platform, you consent to the data practices reviewed in this statement.  


2. WHAT PERSONAL INFORMATION DO WE COLLECT FROM USERS?

We collect two types of information (personal information and anonymous information) and we may use these sources of information to create a third type of information, aggregate information.


2.1 Personal information – Direct and indirect information that identifies a particular individual, such as the individual's name, gender, date of birth, email address, and telephone number.  If you sign-up for a Fortify subscription or other services, such as Fortify Groups or Fortify Coaching, we collect billing and credit card/debit information. This information is used to complete the purchase transaction. Fortify may also collect in its surveys demographic information, such as your age, gender, household income, race, religion and sexual health information.

Please keep in mind that if you directly disclose personally identifiable information or personally sensitive data through Fortify’s community forum, this information may be collected and used by others.

2.2 Anonymous information – Information that does not directly or indirectly identify an individual. This includes automatically collected information about your computer hardware and software. This information can include: your IP address, browser type, domain names, access times and referring website addresses. This information is used for the operation of the service, to maintain quality of the service, and to provide general statistics regarding use of the Fortify website.


2.3 Aggregate information – Information about groups or categories of visitors, which cannot be used to identify an individual, such as a number of hits per page and traffic sources.


3. CHILDREN UNDER THIRTEEN

Fortify does not knowingly collect personally identifiable information from children under the age of thirteen. Children under 13 are not allowed on the website, even with parental permission.  


4. WHEN AND HOW DO WE COLLECT INFORMATION?

Information is gathered through forms filled out when you apply to Fortify, respond to a questionnaire or inventory, follow-up surveys, make a payment, fill out Battle Tracker info, fill out Freedom Plan strategies, Quick Questions, Action Follow-up Questions, or complete any other form on joinfortify.com. When sharing thoughts on comment threads or on web forums, you are also sharing information.  


5. DO WE USE ‘COOKIES’?

Yes. Cookies are small files that a site or its service provider transfers to your computer’s hard drive through your Web browser (if you allow) that enable the site’s or service provider’s systems to recognize your browser and capture and remember certain information. We use cookies to help us compile aggregate data about site traffic and site interaction so that we can offer better site experiences and tools in the future.

Fortify may use “cookies” to help you personalize your online experience. A cookie is a text file that is placed on your hard disk by a web page server. Cookies cannot be used to run programs or deliver viruses to your computer. Cookies are uniquely assigned to you, and can only be read by a web server in the domain that issued the cookie to you.

We use cookies to compile aggregate data about site traffic and site interactions in order to offer better site experiences and tools in the future. We may also use trusted third party services that track this information on our behalf. One of the primary purposes of cookies is to provide a convenience feature to save you time. The purpose of a cookie is to tell the Web server that you have returned to a specific page. For example, if you personalize Fortify pages, or register with the JoinFortify.com or services, a cookie helps Fortify to recall your specific information on subsequent visits. This simplifies the process of recording your personal information, such as billing addresses, shipping addresses, and so on. When you return to the same Fortify website, the information you previously provided can be retrieved, so you can easily use the Fortify features that you customized.

You have the ability to accept or decline cookies. Most Web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer. Each browser is a little different, so look at your browser’s Help menu to learn the correct way to modify your cookies.If you choose to decline cookies, you may not be able to fully experience the interactive features of the Fortify services or websites you visit.

We use regular Malware Scanning.

STATEMENTS OF COMPLIANCE


10. CHILDREN'S ONLINE PRIVACY PROTECTION ACT (COPPA)

When it comes to the collection of personal information from children under 13, the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) puts parents in control. The Federal Trade Commission, the nation’s consumer protection agency, enforces the COPPA Rule, which spells out what operators of websites and online services must do to protect children’s privacy and safety online.


Fortify is committed to the protection of children on the Internet. As such, it has integrated COPPA compliance features into its Fortify products to protect the private information of children under the age of 13 years old.  In particular, we do not specifically market to children under 13 - nor do we allow children under age 13 on the website. During the process of creating an account, a user is required to provide their age. If the child is determined to be under 13 years of age, Fortify will not allow them to sign-up or collect or store any personally identifiable data.


To ensure the highest level of compliance Fortify has consulted with legal experts to determine what features and functions were legally appropriate for adolescents (13 and over in the teen platform) and adults. To the best of our knowledge, Fortify conforms to the regulations outlined in COPPA.

11. CALIFORNIA ONLINE PRIVACY PROTECTION ACT

CalOPPA is the first state law in the nation to require commercial websites and online services to post a privacy policy. The law’s reach stretches well beyond California to require a person or company in the United States (and conceivably the world) that operates websites collecting personally identifiable information from California consumers to post a conspicuous privacy policy on its website stating exactly the information being collected and those individuals with whom it is being shared, and to comply with this policy. – See more at: http://consumercal.org/california-online-privacy-protection-act-caloppa/#sthash.0FdRbT51.dpuf

According to CalOPPA we agree to the following:

11.1  Users can visit our site anonymously

11.2  Our final privacy policy will be linked to on our home page.

11.3  Our Privacy Policy link includes the word ‘Privacy,’ and can be easily be found on the page specified above.


12. CAN-SPAM ACT

The CAN-SPAM Act is a law that sets the rules for commercial email, establishes requirements for commercial messages, gives recipients the right to have emails stopped from being sent to them, and spells out tough penalties for violations. Per this act, know that we collect your email address in order to:

12.1  Send information, respond to inquiries, and/or other requests or questions

12.2  Process orders and to send information and updates pertaining to orders

12.3  We may also send you additional information related to your product and/or service

12.4  Continue to send emails to our Fortify users after the original signup has occurred

To be in accordance with CANSPAM we agree to the following:

12.5  NOT use false, or misleading subjects or email addresses

12.6  Identify any message that is advertising another feature or service in some reasonable way

12.7  Include the physical address of our business or site headquarters

12.8  Monitor third party email marketing services for compliance, if one is used.

12.9  Honor opt-out/unsubscribe requests quickly

12.10 Allow users to unsubscribe by using the link at the bottom of each email

If at any time you would like to unsubscribe from receiving future emails, you can follow the instructions at the bottom of each email and we will promptly remove you from ALL correspondence.



OPT-OUT & UNSUBSCRIBE
We respect your privacy and give you an opportunity to opt-out of receiving announcements of certain information. Users may opt-out of receiving any or all communications from Fortify by clicking “unsubscribe” in the footers of emails that we send out.
