Interest In Life and any affiliated entities respect your privacy and are committed to protecting personal information you share with us in accordance with this Privacy Policy.

This policy applies to information we collect, or you provide, when you register to use, and as you are using, the websites under the passporttoindependence.com top level Internet domain name (referred to herein as the "Website").

Use of this Website, and any of the services, features and functionality available through this Website (the “Services”), is conditioned upon reviewing, understanding, and agreeing to all of the information, disclosures and disclaimers contained in this Privacy Policy. In the event we modify the Privacy Policy we will update the revision date noted above and post such revised policy to our Website. Your continued use of the Website after we make changes is deemed to be acceptance of those changes, so please check the policy periodically for updates.

Interest In Life is a United States-based website made for an international audience that can access it from anywhere in the world.  

Please note that the passporttoindependence.com top level domain name (and any related available subdomains) is hosted in the United States of America. By uploading Personal Information to any of the Website properties under the passporttoindependence.com domain, you are agreeing to the processing of your Personal Information in the United States of America.


Use of Personal Information

We do not collect or use Personal Information (as defined below) about you except as discussed in this Privacy Policy. As used herein, "Personal Information" consists of the personally identifiable information about yourself that you provide when you contact us to sign up for our newsletter, register to receive or purchase products and services, and/or request support or communicate with us otherwise.

Any time you provide Personal Information for a specific purpose, we will use your information to take action relevant to such purpose. For example, if you send a comment to us from the Website, we may use information you provide to respond to you about your comment. If you make a purchase, we will use information you provide to us to process your payment, fulfill your order and contact you about your order.

Although it may be necessary for you to provide Personal Information to us to utilize or otherwise take advantage of certain features of this Website, we will not use your Personal Information to send you promotional materials unless you affirmatively indicate that you would like to receive future promotional materials and other correspondence regarding our company, and our products and services at the time you provide Personal Information (see “Opt-In Communications” below).

Opt-In Communications

Our Website provides you with the opportunity to subscribe to receive communications from us at the point where you provide Personal Information. If you opt-in, we will only use your Personal Information for the purposes for which you affirmed consent. If you do not opt-in, we will not use your Personal Information for such additional communication. Please note, however, that even where you choose not to opt-in to optional information, you may still occasionally receive communications from us specific to the Website, purchases made on the Website, and/or Services concerning your use of the Website and/or Services and/or updates, upgrades, developments or other changes to the Website/Services.

Third-Party Disclosures

We do not sell your information to other companies. However, we may provide information to our service providers to use on our behalf in reacting to your requests and bringing you the Services we offer. Specifically, we may use third parties to facilitate our business, such as Website hosting and/or Service at a cloud hosting facility or co-location facility for servers, to send out email updates, to provide help desk assistance, to remove repetitive information from our user lists, or to process payments for products or services, or to provide search results. In connection with these offerings and business operations, our service providers may have access to your Personal Information for use for a limited time in connection with these business activities. In general, the third-party providers used by us will only collect, use and disclose your information to the extent necessary to allow them to perform the services they provide to us. However, certain third-party service providers, such as payment gateways and other payment transaction processors, have their own privacy policies with respect to the information we are required to provide to them for purchase-related transactions. For these providers, we recommend that you read their privacy policies so you can understand the manner in which your personal information will be handled by these providers.

We may use other third party service providers in addition to the ones we've listed above and may change third party service providers without notice. You may contact us at any time for the most current list of our third party service providers along with links to the most current versions of their respective privacy policies and terms and conditions. We will use reasonable efforts to update this Privacy Policy from time to time in the event we believe in good faith that changes in our third party service providers will impact this Privacy Policy.

We may be required to disclose your user information pursuant to lawful requests, such as subpoenas or court orders, or in compliance with applicable laws. We do not reveal information until we have a good faith belief that an information request by law enforcement or private litigants meets applicable legal standards.

Additionally, we may share account or other information when we believe it is necessary to comply with law, to protect our interests or property, to prevent fraud or other illegal activity perpetrated through the Service. This may include sharing information with other companies, lawyers, agents, law enforcement, or government agencies.

In the event the ownership of all or substantially all of the Interest In Life business changes, your information may be transferred to the new owner in order to continue operations.

Google Advertising Features:

In addition to Google Analytics Demographics and Interest Reporting, we may also enable the following Google Advertising Features: “Remarketing with Google Analytics” and “Google Display Network”.
