IP Addresses

We may collect and log the IP address of all visitors to the Anticipation Habit website. An IP address is a number automatically assigned to your computer whenever you access the Internet. IP addresses allow computers and servers to recognize and communicate with one another. We collect IP address information so that we can properly manage our system and gather information about how our site is being used. This includes the pages visitors are viewing. Your IP address may be associated with records containing personal information.

Personal information- includes information that is unique to an individual, such as a name, address, job title, email address or telephone number.

If you submit to Ascending Bridge any personal information relating to other people, you represent that you have the authority to do so and permit us to use the information in accordance with this privacy policy. By submitting personal information, you grant Ascending Bridge the right to transmit, monitor, retrieve, store and use your information in connection with the operation of the website.

How We Use This Information

Ascending Bridge uses the information you provide to fulfill online requests, or in other ways as required by law. We may use your information:

  • To help us understand how to grow and develop our work
  • To personalize your experience and inform you about the work in which you have indicated an interest
  • To improve our website offerings and send you information and updates
  • To test, or survey a proposed site feature
  • To communicate changes to our privacy policy or terms of use

Only those who need the information provided to perform a specific task have access to your information. These are authorized members of the Ascending Bridge workforce. In some cases, third parties contracted by Ascending Bridge may have access to your information to perform a specific task, for example, to send you an e-newsletter.

Data Security

Ascending Bridge makes every reasonable effort to ensure that your personal information remains as secure as possible. Accordingly, we prevent unauthorized access by a secure firewall and use of security technologies to protect the integrity and privacy of any personal information you provide.

As an additional security measure, your personal information is also encrypted during transmission by Secure Socket Layer 128-bit encryption software. (Encryption is a common method used to transmit sensitive data across the Internet. Encryption temporarily makes the text unreadable during the time it is being transmitted over the Internet.) This is an industry standard.

Although we endeavor to protect your personal information, Ascending Bridge cannot warrant the security of any information you transmit to us through online applications, and you do so at your own risk. Depending on the nature of the inquiry, your communication could be discarded or archived.

Online Forms

Forms provided on the Anticipation Habit website may include event registration, newsletter signups, and forum registration and usage. The information required to complete the transaction is noted on each specific form. Although we provide robust security measures to protect the transmission of information, Ascending Bridge is not responsible if unauthorized parties gain access to the confidential information shared in the online forms.

Newsletter/Press Release Subscriptions

If you subscribe to a newsletter, publication, press release or RSS feed published by Ascending Bridge and distributed by email or RSS feed, we will maintain your email address in a private distribution list unless you have selected to “opt-out.” Messages sent electronically do not include recipients’ email addresses or any other personal information. To unsubscribe by email, please contact ascendingbridge@gmail.com

Email Information

Occasionally, we will request personal information from you in order to deliver materials you have requested, respond to your questions or provide information. Ascending Bridge keeps personal information on file, but does not share, sell, license or transmit this information to third parties or external vendors unless required to do so by legal, judicial or governmental proceedings, or in order to provide the services requested. Please note that email is considered a non-encrypted (and therefore nonsecure) form of communication, and it can be accessed and viewed by others without your knowledge and permission. For that reason, to protect your privacy, please do not use email to communicate information that you consider confidential.
