Privacy Policy

Spirit of the Dawn, LLC was founded by Caroline Ra in 2008 with the core mission to inspire personal evolution, consciousness, vibrancy, empowerment, creative expression, and unconditional love for ourselves and all others. We have always operated and will always operate under conscious business practices. We sincerely value your privacy. We do not sell information that we obtain during the course of doing business with you at Spirit of the Dawn with Caroline Ra (spiritofthedawn.com), Spirit of the Dawn Academy (academy.spiritofthedawn.com), and Spirit of the Dawn Community (spiritofthedawn.CMNTY.com.) Whether you are a client, a student, a community member, all three, or a first-time visitor to our site your privacy is of importance to us. Here we explain what information we collect, how we collect it, why we collect it, and how you can access any information we may have that pertains to you. Blend up a raw cacao smoothie and read on!

EMAIL MARKETING

Through Spirit of the Dawn Weekly, our weekly newsletter, and other mailings we are able to let subscribers know about our latest news, offerings, blogs pieces, and podcast interviews.

Our email marketing company is Ontraport. When someone signs up for Spirit of the Dawn Weekly, they provide their email address and first name. Ontraport will also store their IP address and provide us with city, state, and country location for the subscriber. At the bottom of each email is a place to unsubscribe from non-transactional mailings.

TRACKING TOOLS

Tracking tools provide analytics for site owners and are an important part of running an online business. They provide user data that helps tremendously in understanding how our audience interacts with our offerings. Spirit of the Dawn tracks visitors and users so that we may continue to create an ever-evolving platform that engages and inspires.

Our main website spiritofthedawn.com and its subdomain academy.spiritofthedawn.com track visitors and users via Lucky Orange Reports. Lucky Orange collects anonymized IP addresses, country, and usually city and province or state. It also collects user activity at the site (pages visited, time spent on each page), referral source (Google search, Facebook, etc.) and browser and devise used. This information is stored for 30 days.

Our community site spiritofthedawn.cmnty.com is a private site for members only and uses the built-in Google Analytics to track member activity and how members interact with the community platform.

COMMENTS

We appreciate receiving comments at the bottom of blog pieces and podcast interviews.

Comments made after a blog piece or podcast are put into the WPDiscuz Plugin system. There is an optional checkbox requesting that no information be stored. Spirit of the Dawn will receive information regarding name and email provided, plus IP address.

CONTACT FORMS

Often potential clients and students will write to Spirit of the Dawn with specific questions. Information is collected so that we may send a return email.

Two main ways to contact Spirit of the Dawn are through the Contact Page run by the Contact Form 7 plugin and the Sumo contact tab. These methods will collect name, email address, and IP address.

SOUL PASSION PROJECT COMMUNITY

Soul Passion Project Community operates on the CMNTY platform. Membership is free with no hidden costs.

Our community membership requires members to provide their full name and email address. We also ask that members share information on their profile to encourage community engagement, creativity, and fun.

SPIRIT OF THE DAWN ACADEMY

Spirit of the Dawn Academy operates on the Thinkific platform and offers courses in conscious creativity through monthly memberships for course collections and through individually-priced course offerings . We will be launching with The Art of Raw Desserts Club with a monthly membership and a free 7-day trial. Payment is recurring monthly and processed via Stripe.

When a student sets up an account in Spirit of the Dawn Academy, we collect full name and address. We can track student progress through courses and do send emails to our students to encourage and commend their accomplishments, inform them of new courses for them to check out, and notify them of any important changes they need to know about.

ACUITY SCHEDULING

Spirit of the Dawn uses Acuity Scheduling for all client and podcast guest scheduling.
