Our Commitment to Security
Since some of the information we gather is not publicly available, we take great care to ensure that this information is kept safe from unauthorized access. Because LM respects your privacy and values your trust, the only employees or companies who can access your non-public personal information are those who use it to service your specified requests or provide services to you or to us as part of delivering the benefits you subscribed to. LM diligently maintains appropriate safeguards that comply with applicable federal and international standards to guard your non-public personal information and to assist us in preventing unauthorized access to that information.
We have appropriate physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards in place to help protect against the loss, misuse, or alteration of any information you may have provided at our site. We always use industry-standard encryption technologies when transferring and receiving consumer data exchanged with our site for the purpose of requesting and accepting subscriptions pertaining to our electronic newsletters, the lifemastering™ Journal (see lifemastering.com) and all other products or services you may request.
When you provide LM with your e-mail address, we will use it only for the purpose for which it was provided. We do not rent, sell, or exchange your e-mail address with any third party except to provide the services you request or as required by law (see "Other Entities" section below).
Information We Collect
Automatically Collected Anonymous Information When you visit the LM website, certain anonymous information about your visit is automatically logged as it is at most websites, which may include information about your IP address, domain name, browser type, access time, and referring website address. This information is not personally identifiable and is only used in aggregate (not in any way that personally identifies you).
Personally Identifiable Information Personally Identifiable Information is any information about you as an individual that would enable someone to contact you; for example, your name, address, telephone number, or e-mail address. LM will not collect any personally identifiable information about you unless you provide it. Providing any personally identifiable information to LM is voluntary. If you do not want LM to obtain any personally identifiable information about you, do not submit it.
How We Use This InformationWe will use your information only as permitted by law. Aggregated information may be used in many ways. For example, we may combine information about your usage patterns with similar information obtained from other users to learn which pages are visited most or what features are most attractive. Aggregated information may occasionally be shared with our advertisers and business partners, but cannot be used to contact you individually.
Personally identifiable information will be used for the purposes for which it was given. We also may use it to notify you about updates to our website and to contact you for marketing or event purposes.
You can visit and browse LM’s websites without revealing personally identifiable information about yourself. You may also choose to disclose personally identifiable information about yourself for the purposes described below.
E-mail Newsletters; The lifemastering™ Journal When you request an e-mail newsletter from us, we will collect and store your e-mail address to provide you with the requested newsletter. We may also send you occasional special offers from LM and other select sources we think would be of interest to you. You may change your subscribed e-mail address, opt-out of receiving special e-mailed offers, or remove yourself from our mailing list by following the instructions contained in every newsletter. We do not rent, sell, or exchange your e-mail address with any third party except to provide the services you request or as required by law (see "Other Entities" section below).
Requests for Information, Products or Services When you request information, offers, a product or a service from us, we will collect and store your name, address, credit card number (if submitted), and other basic personally identifiable information to provide you with the requested product, information or service - and for billing purposes when requested. We may also offer you, by direct mail, products from LM and other select sources we think would be of interest to you.
Your e-mail address will also be obtained during the online information request or newsletter subscription process for the purpose of corresponding with you about your request; to deliver the newsletter(s) and special announcements you subscribed to; and to occasionally notify you of additional online informational resources and opportunities we believe may be of interest to you. You may opt-out of receiving any subsequent electronic correspondence by following the unsubscribe information found in each e-mail announcement. Again, we will not rent, sell, or exchange your e-mail address with a third party for any purpose except to provide the services or information you request - or as required by law.
Third Party Direct Marketing We may occasionally rent our customer list (not including e-mail addresses) to other organizations to offer you products or services that may be of interest to you by direct mail or other mans.
Opting Out of Eventual Third Party Direct Marketing: After receiving the product or service requested from LM, you may "opt-out" of receiving Third Party Direct Marketing offers by sending an e-mail stating your request to opt-out along with your complete name, mailing address, and the name of our electronic newsletter, the lifemastering™ Journal and/or the lifemastering™ Toolbox. This information is necessary so we can accurately process your request.
Surveys LM occasionally conducts reader, client and site visitor surveys to better target content to our audiences. We may at times share the aggregated demographic information in these surveys with our advertisers and partners. We never share with any third party information collected via surveys about specific individuals.
Other Services LM may at times offer free services such as for instance "e-mail this page". We collect the domain name, e-mail address, and name of visitors who choose to use this service in order to fulfill their requests. We also collect the e-mail addresses and names of the people to whom our visitors choose to send pages or other forwardable information, in order to enable our visitors to send the pages they have chosen - and for no other purpose.
Other Entities Companies that are independent from LM might operate some of the online areas that you may visit via links from www.businessmastering.com and/or any other lifemastering™ site with other country domain endings. Although LM will seek to require that these independent companies (e.g., information and service providers, eventual advertisers, merchants, and sponsors) adhere to our strong privacy principles, LM does not bear responsibility for their policies or actions. Please read their unique site privacy policies.
Certain LM Internet services may be co-branded at times, and thus offered in conjunction with another company. If you register to use or obtain such services or information, both LM and the other company may receive the information you provide.
LM reserves the right to cooperate with law enforcement officials in the investigation of alleged unlawful activities of our customers related to electronic communication transmitted on our site. LM will have no legal liability for such disclosures.
How to Update Your InformationE-mail Newsletter(s) You may subscribe and unsubscribe to our newsletter(s) or related mailings by following the instructions posted in each newsletter edition you receive. We prominently mention your unsubscribe options within the body of all newsletter mailings or special offers and announcements distributed via email.

LM may process such information to the extent necessary for providing you with the Service. The purpose of registration is to enable you to use the Service by building a visual dream board (masterboard) and an activity plan.

lifemastering.com offers personalized access and you are only able to see your own data. You are responsible for keeping username and password in a safe way, and solely responsible for maintaining confidentiality of your account. Passwords are not stored in our databases.
Your California Privacy Rights Beginning on January 1, 2005, California Civil Code Section 1798.83 requires LM (1) to enable its customers who are California residents to request certain information regarding its disclosure of personal information to third parties for their eventual direct marketing purposes or (2) to offer the opportunity for customers to opt out of potentially having their personal information disclosed to third parties for the third parties' eventual direct marketing purposes. We offer the second option, as described above in the "Third Party Direct Marketing" section. If you prefer not to receive such direct marketing offers, please feel free to make your request known as explained above.
