Cookie Policy

Our Privacy Policy explains our
principles when it comes to the collection, processing, and storage of your
information. This policy specifically explains how we, our partners, and users
of our services deploy cookies, as well as the options you have to control
them.

What are cookies?

Cookies are small pieces
of data, stored in text files, that are stored on your computer or other device
when websites are loaded in a browser. They are widely used to “remember” you
and your preferences, either for a single visit (through a “session cookie”) or
for multiple repeat visits (using a “persistent cookie”). They ensure a
consistent and efficient experience for visitors, and perform essential
functions such as allowing users to register and remain logged in. Cookies may
be set by the site that you are visiting (known as “first party cookies”), or
by third parties, such as those who serve content or provide advertising or
analytics services on the website (“third party cookies”).

Both websites and HTML
emails may also contain other tracking technologies such as “web beacons” or
“pixels.” These are typically small transparent images that provide us with
statistics, for similar purposes as cookies. They are often used in conjunction
with cookies, though they are not stored on your computer in the same way. As a
result, if you disable cookies, web beacons may still load, but their
functionality will be restricted.

How we use cookies

We use cookies for several
different purposes. Some cookies are necessary for technical reasons; some
enable a personalized experience for both visitors and registered users; and
some allow the display of advertising from selected third party networks. Some
of these cookies may be set when a page is loaded, or when a visitor takes a
particular action (clicking the “like” or “follow” button on a post, for
example).

Many of the cookies we
use are only set if you are a registered The Four Pillars To Online Success
user (so you don’t have to log in every time, for example), while others are
set whenever you visit one of our websites, irrespective of whether you have an
account.

For more information on
the choices you have about the cookies we use, please see the Controlling
Cookies section below.

Types of Cookie

The table below explains
the types of cookies we use on our websites and why we use them.

Category of cookies Why we use these cookies
Strictly Necessary These cookies are essential for our website to perform it’s
basic functions. These include those required to allow registered users to
authenticate and perform account related functions, as well as to save the
contents of virtual “cart”.
Functionality These cookies are used to store preferences set by users
such as account name, language, and location.
Security We use these cookies to help identify and prevent potential
security risks.
Analytics and Performance Performance cookies collect information on how users
interact with our website, including what pages are visited most, as
well as other analytical data. We use these details to improve how our
website functions and to understand how users interact with it.
Advertising These cookies are used to display relevant advertising to
visitors who use our services, as well as to understand and report on the
efficacy of ads served on our website. They track details such as the number
of unique visitors, the number of times particular ads have been displayed,
and the number of clicks the ads have received. They are also used to build
user profiles, including showing you ads based on products you’ve viewed or
acts you have taken on our website. These are set by The
Four Pillars To Online Success and trusted third party networks, and are generally
persistent in nature.
Third Party / Embedded Content The Four Pillars To
Online Success makes use of
different third party applications and services to enhance the experience of
website visitors. These include social media platforms such as Facebook and
Twitter (through the use of sharing buttons), or embedded content from
Youtube and Vimeo. As a result, cookies may be set by these third parties,
and used by them to track your online activity. We have no direct control
over the information that is collected by these cookies.

User Site

In addition to the
cookies set on our own sites, we utilize cookies for our Site Stats feature. This tallies
the unique numbers of visitors to our site, as well as the number from specific
geographic locations. A visitor is counted when we see a user or browser
for the first time in a given period.

Controlling Cookies

Visitors may wish to
restrict the use of cookies or completely prevent them from being set. Most
browsers provide for ways to control cookie behavior such as the length of time
they are stored – either through built-in functionality or by utilizing third
party plugins. If you disable cookies, please be aware that some of the
features of our service may not function correctly.

advertising you may visit the following sites:

On a mobile device, you

You can opt out of Google
Analytics by installing Google’s opt-out browser add-on.

Our Internal Analytics Tool

In order to better
understand how our services are used, we monitor certain user activities that
take place within our products, including page views and clicks on any links
used when managing a site via our dashboards.

We call each one of these
actions an “event.” Analytics events are attached to your The Four Pillars To
Online Success account and are handled via a first party system that The Four
Pillars To Online Success owns and maintains. In general, we record the
following data for each event: IP address, user ID /username, user agent,
referring URL, timestamp of event, browser language, and country code.

We use this information
to improve our products, make our marketing to you more relevant, personalize
your experience, and for the other purposes described in our Privacy Policy.

You may opt out of our
analytics program through your user settings. By doing so, you won’t share
information with our analytics tool about events or actions that happen after
the opt-out, while logged in to your The Four Pillars To Online Success account.
Note that opting out does not disable the functionality of the actions we track
– for example, if you publish a post, we will still have record of that (don’t
worry!), but for an event or action after you opt out, we will not have other data
associated with that action or event in the analytics tool.
