The Types of Information We Collect
“Personal Information” is information that can be used to identify, locate, or contact an individual. It also includes other data that may be associated with Personal Information. When you sign up for our mailing lists or make purchases through our Site, we may collect the following types of Personal Information:
- “Personally Identifying Information,” such as:
- Contact information that allows us to communicate with you, such as your name, email address(es), telephone numbers, or other addresses at which you receive communications from, on behalf of or through The DB Method.
- “Non-Identifying Information,” such as
- Information that helps us to understand who you are and what types of offers you might like. This includes location information related to your state/province, city, or neighborhood; items of interest, the types of third-party services you use, and targeted recommendations; and demographic information (e.g., birth date, age). All of this information will be aggregated for data analysis and separated from any of your Identifying Information.
- Transaction information about how you interact with our Site, such as the pages or items sections you view, how long and when you view them, the type of browser that you view them from, and how you interact with the Site generally.
These are only examples of information that we may collect, not an exhaustive list

Information You Provide to Third Parties
COPPA Policy for Children Under Thirteen
The DB Method fully complies with the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act, and does not intentionally direct any services at children under thirteen (13). Since we do not at this time monitor Site visitors or require any user to give us his or her specific age, it may be possible that children under 13 may access and use the Site without our knowledge. However, if we determine that any user is under the age of 13, we will immediately suspend that user’s account or, if possible, access to the Site, and it shall be that user’s responsibility to provide proof of age to continue use of the Service. If you believe that we have inadvertently collected information of a child under the age of 13, please contact us immediately at firstname.lastname@example.org so that we can remove and/or destroy the information.
Cookies and Related Technologies
To provide a smooth and easy experience when you use our Site, we may use technologies such as cookies, pixel tags, server logs, and other similar technologies to automatically collect and store information. As you use our Site and the services therein, your devices communicate with servers operated by us and by our service providers to coordinate the interactivity and fulfill your requests for services and information.
For example, when you make purchases on our Site, we may place cookies on your device. Cookies allow us to recognize when you return so that we can customize and create a more pleasant user experience for you, and make it easier to check out for your following purchases.
Most of the time, the information we collect using cookies and other tools only provides us with Non-Identifying Information. It often helps us understand what our users are accessing most often and to provide better services or make better offerings. You may always choose not to allow cookies through your device settings, but please note that some of our Site offerings may then no longer work for you.
You can choose how much information to share with us, but please do note, there may be a minimum amount of information required to obtain an account or to make purchases with The DB Method, and by limiting how much information you provide may limit the functionality of our services for your purposes.
You can manage your notification preferences by logging into your account and changing those preferences. You can also unsubscribe from any mailings by clicking the “unsubscribe” link at the bottom of emails you receive.
