While you don't need to provide any information in order to explore and enjoy our Websites, we do collect Navigational Information.
In addition, we sometimes request that you provide Personal Information when you're seeking certain things from us (like our downloadable eBooks or guides, for example).
"Navigational Information" refers to information about your computer and your visits to our websites, such as your IP address, geographical location, browser type, referral source, length of visit, and pages viewed.
"Personal Information" refers to any information that you voluntarily submit to us and that identifies you personally, including contact information, such as your name, email address, company name, address, phone number, and other information about yourself or your business. Personal Information can also include information about any transactions, both free and paid, that you enter into via our Websites, and information about you that is publicly available on the Internet, such as from Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, Instagram and Google, or publicly available information that we acquire from service providers.
Aggregate Information (non-personally identifiable). We share aggregated demographic and usage information about our Website users with our business partners, such as product data providers, food manufacturers, and retail stores. This information does not identify individual users. We do not link aggregate user data with PII.
Legal Disclaimer. We reserve the right to disclose your PII as required by law and when we believe that disclosure is necessary to protect our rights (or those of our Website users) and/or to comply with a judicial proceeding, court order, or legal process served on our Websites.
Links To Other Websites. If you click on a link to a third party site, you will leave the site you are visiting and go to the site you selected. Because we cannot control the activities of third parties, we cannot accept responsibility for any use of your PII by such third parties, and we cannot guarantee that they will adhere to the same privacy practices as Assuaged. We encourage you to review the Privacy Policies of any other service provider from whom you request services.
Bulletin Boards/Chat Rooms/Blogs/Forums.

The CCPA also applies to any business that controls or is controlled by an entity that meets one of the above criteria and shares common branding with that entity. Non-profit organizations do not need to comply with the CCPA unless they are owned by, control, or share branding with a for-profit business.
Assuaged Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization and we do not engage in any of thresholds mentioned nor do we ever share private information outside of our organization.

The “Pinterest Tag” (individual code segment) from Pinterest Inc., 33271 Green Valley Lake Rd, # 8502 Green Valley Lake, CA, USA, (“Pinterest”) is embedded on our websites.
Using the Pinterest tag, Pinterest is able to identify the visitors to our websites as a target group for displaying ads (“Pinterest ads”). Accordingly, we use the Pinterest tag so that our targeted Pinterest ads will only be displayed to Pinterest users who have actually shown an interest in our websites or who meet specific criteria (e.g. interest in specific topics or products that are determined based on the websites visited) which we indicate to Pinterest (known as “ActAlike Audiences”). Using the Pinterest tag, we also aim to ensure that our Pinterest ads match the potential interest of users and are not bothersome. In addition, we can also use the Pinterest tag to trace the efficacy of Pinterest ads for statistical and marketing purposes by seeing whether users were forwarded to our websites after clicking on a Pinterest ad (known as “Conversion”).
The Pinterest tag will only be activated if you have granted us your voluntary consent (in accordance with Art. 6 (1) a GDPR) in our request under cookie settings. You may withdraw or modify your selection there at any time with future effect (see Section 3).
All data that is collected remains anonymous to us and does not allow us to draw conclusions about the identity of the user in question. Data is collected concerning device information (e.g. type, brand), the operating system used, the IP address of the device used, the time of access, the type and content of the campaign, the reaction to the respective campaign (e.g. completed purchase, newsletter subscription) as well as device identifiers that consist of individual features of the end device. This enables us to recognize your end device on our websites.
The information below provides details about the content of our newsletter. It also explains our subscription and mailing procedures, the methods we use for performing statistical analysis and your rights to object. When you subscribe to our newsletter, you are consenting to receive the newsletter and to the procedures described.
Content of the newsletter
We only send the newsletter to recipients who have provided their consent in accordance with Article 6 (1) a GDPR or when it is legally permissible to do so. If, in relation to a subscription to the newsletter, the content of the newsletter is described in specific terms, this will serve as an essential basis for the user providing consent. Our newsletter contains information about our offers and promotions as well as about our company. It may also include information that specifically refers to blog posts, our services, or our online presence.
Using the mailing service provider “Hubspot”
We have commissioned Hubspot as a third-party service provider to distribute and analyze our newsletter. Furthermore, we use an online subscription service through HubSpot, Inc., 25 First Street, 2nd Floor, Cambridge, MA 02141 USA. To understand how HubSpot's subscription service works, we're quoting directly from HubSpot's privacy page regarding this matter:
HubSpot's agreement with Assuaged Foundation, Inc., and Assuaged, Inc., dba Be Your Highest, prohibits us from using the Subscription Service to collect, manage, or process Sensitive Information. "Sensitive Information" refers to credit or debit card numbers, personal financial account information, Social Security numbers, Social Insurance numbers, passport numbers, driver's license numbers or similar personal identifiers, racial or ethnic origin, physical or mental health condition or information, or other financial or health information.
NOTE: HubSpot is NOT responsible for the information we collect.
When you subscribe to our newsletter, the data (e.g. e-mail address) you provide during the registration process will be forwarded to Hubspot and stored there. The service provider is based in the USA and the data is processed on servers in the USA.
If you provide us with your Personal Information, you have the following rights with respect to that information:
To exercise any of these rights, please contact us. We will promptly change, correct, or delete your information and notify you of the action we have taken.
You may unsubscribe from our marketing communications by clicking on the "unsubscribe" link located on the bottom of our emails, by contacting us, or by clicking the link below. Customers cannot opt out of receiving transactional emails related to their accounts.
On rare occasions, a trusted third party might ask us about the demographic makeup of our contact database. In these instances, we might provide statistical information about our database in aggregate, but never any information that could be used to identify any individual user.
We use a variety of security technologies and procedures to help protect your Personal Information from unauthorized access, use, or disclosure.
We retain Personal Information that you provide us as long as we consider it potentially useful in contacting you about the Subscription Service or our other services, and then we securely delete the information. We will delete this information from the servers at an earlier date if you so request, as described in the opting out and unsubscribing sections above.
If we (or our assets) are acquired by another company, whether by merger, acquisition, bankruptcy, or otherwise, that company would receive all information gathered by our Websites and the Subscription Service.
We reserve the right to use or disclose your Personal Information if required by law or if we reasonably believe that use or disclosure is necessary to protect our rights or to comply with a law, court order, or legal process.

These links do not constitute our endorsement of these other websites, their content, their owners, or their practices.
We use Navigational Information to operate and improve our Websites and the Subscription Service. Read below for specifics.
We 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 server. Cookies are not 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. 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 pages on our Websites, or register for the Subscription Service, a cookie helps us to recall your specific information on subsequent visits in what is referred to as "Smart Content". When you return to the same Website, the information you previously provided can be retrieved, so you can easily use the customized features.
Most Web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer. If you choose to decline cookies, you may not be able to fully experience interactive features on our Websites or Subscription Service. We keep track of pages you visit in order to determine the most popular or most used. This data is used to deliver better customized content and promotions.
We may collect demographic information, such as your ZIP code, Postal code, age, gender, preferences, interests, and favorites using log files that are not associated with your name or other personally identifying information.
There is also information about your computer hardware and software that we automatically collect. This information can include your IP address, browser type, domain names, access times, and referring website addresses. For these purposes, we do link this automatically-collected data to Personal Information, such as name, email address, address, and phone number.
