Privacy Policy

Who we are

We are a global and cooperative team of Independent Representatives for Miessence – an Australian-based direct sales and network marketing company specializing in truly organic personal care and nutritional products, serving customers all around the globe.   Some of us are qualified health practitioners and some of us are work-from-home moms or dads or other professionals who care deeply about natural health for ourselves, our families, our friends, our communities and our world.  Our website address is www.miorganicmovement.com, which is used as a platform to house our individual email subscriber forms and collaborative team newsletter articles.  If at any time you have questions about your personal data as related to our MiCommunity newsletter co-op, please feel free to reach out to your personal Miessence Rep and/or email info (at) micommunitysupport (dot) com.

What personal data we collect and why we collect it

Email Subscribers

People give us their names and email addresses, and permission to email them, in person or online for a number of reasons – e.g. free educational resources, entries into giveaways, and/or specific information requested on the Miessence products and/or home business.  Each individual rep uses this contact info to deliver the requested information and then stay in touch ongoing via our collaborative 2x/month email newsletter for as long as the person remains interested.  If at any time you no longer wish to receive the MiCommunity email newsletter from your personal Miessence Rep, you can easily unsubscribe any time using the update/unsubscribe link at the bottom of each newsletter and/or contact your rep to request that you be removed from his/her database, which is currently maintained in our team account on the Infusionsoft email marketing platform.  We never share your information with outside marketing agencies, and we will only share your contact information with Miessence as appropriate and when necessary (e.g. you won a gift certificate giveaway and so we send them your contact info for them to create your gift certificate).

If you are a Miessence customer also, please be aware that Miessence HQ in Australia maintains its own database of customers, and as independent representatives of the company, we your Miessence reps have no direct control over their database.  We only have control over our own personal email lists of interested contacts.  If you have questions about Miessence’s use of your contact info at any time, please feel free to contact them directly at support (at) miessence (dot) com.

Please note: The remainder of this privacy policy page was written in template form by WordPress, the platform on which this website is built.  It contains a lot of tech-speak related that many of us only barely understand ourselves, but we’re leaving it here to cover all legal bases with the new international data protection regulations in effect as of May 25, 2018.  🙂

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.

An anonymized string created from your email address (also called a hash) may be provided to the Gravatar service to see if you are using it. The Gravatar service privacy policy is available here: https://automattic.com/privacy/. After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.

If you upload images to the website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the website.

Cookies

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.

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.

These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracing your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.

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.

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.
