Privacy is extremely important to us at Simple Strength Club. We have seen the ugly side of the internet and do not want to participate in the gross misuse and abuse of personal data.
When you sign up for Simple Strength Club (SSC), we ask for your email address and an annonymous handle that serves as your primary identifier on SSC. That’s it, friend! Your email will never be publicly shared and we will use it only so we can send you invoices, updates, or other essential information. We’ll never sell your personal info to third parties and we use zero third party analytics on SSC.
When you pay for an annual membership to SSC, we ask for your credit card and billing address. That’s so we can charge you for service, calculate taxes due, and send you invoices. Your credit card is passed directly to our payment processor and doesn’t ever go through our servers. We store a record of the payment transaction, including the last 4 digits of the credit card number, for account history, invoicing, and billing support. We store your billing address to calculate any sales tax due in the United States, to detect fraudulent credit card transactions, and to print on your invoices. Like other personal information, none of this is used for any other purspose than those just stated.
When you email us here at SSC with a question or to ask for help, we’ll keep that correspondence, and the email address, for future reference. We also store any information you volunteer, like surveys, for as long as it makes sense.
The only times we’ll ever share your info:
SSC won’t hand your data over to law enforcement unless a court order says we have to. We flat-out reject requests from local and federal law enforcement when they seek data without a court order. And unless we’re legally prevented from it, we’ll always inform you when such requests are made.
All data is encrypted via SSL/TLS when transmitted from our servers to your browser. The database backups are also encrypted. Data isn’t encrypted while it’s live in our database (since it needs to be ready to send to you when you need it), but we go to great lengths to secure your data at rest.
This Site is operated in the United States. If you are located in the European Union or elsewhere outside of the United States, please be aware that any information you provide to us will be transferred to the United States. By using our Site, participating in any of our services and/or providing us with your information, you consent to this transfer.
SSC may update this policy at some point in the future. Don't worry, we’ll notify you about significant changes by emailing the email on record or by placing a prominent notice on our site.
