Essential Oil University, LLC (US) (“Essential Oil University”) operates essentialoils.org. It is Essential Oil University’s policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our websites.

Website Visitors

Like most website operators, Essential Oil University collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. Essential Oil University’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Essential Oil University’s visitors use its website. From time to time, Essential Oil University may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.

Essential Oil University also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users. Essential Oil University only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

Certain visitors to Essential Oil University’s websites choose to interact with Essential Oil University in ways that require Essential Oil University to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Essential Oil University gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, those who engage in transactions with Essential Oil University – by purchasing access to EOUdb, for example – are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, Essential Oil University collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with Essential Oil University. Essential Oil University does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.

Aggregated Statistics

Essential Oil University may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. Essential Oil University may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, Essential Oil University does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.

Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information

Essential Oil University discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on Essential Oil University’s behalf or to provide services available at Essential Oil University’s essentialoils.org, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using Essential Oil University’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Essential Oil University will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, Essential Oil University discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when Essential Oil University believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Essential Oil University, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of an Essential Oil University website and have supplied your email address, Essential Oil University may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what’s going on with Essential Oil University and our products. We expect to keep this type of email to a minimum. If you send us a request (for example via a support email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. Essential Oil University takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
