Use of Cookies

The Ideas on Fire Websites may use “cookies” to help you personalize your online experience. A cookie is a text file that is placed on your hard disk by a web page server. Cookies cannot be used to run programs or deliver viruses to your computer. Cookies are uniquely assigned to you, and can only be read by a web server in the domain that issued the cookie to you.

One of the primary purposes of cookies is to provide a convenience feature to save you time. The purpose of a cookie is to tell the web server that you have returned to a specific page. For example, if you personalize Ideas on Fire pages, or register with Ideas on Fire sites or programs, a cookie helps Ideas on Fire to recall your specific information on subsequent visits. This simplifies the process of recording your personal information, such as billing addresses, shipping addresses, and so on. When you return to the same Ideas on Fire website, the information you previously provided can be retrieved, so you can easily use the Ideas on Fire features that you customized.

You have the ability to accept or decline cookies. Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer. If you choose to decline cookies, you may not be able to fully experience the interactive features of the Ideas on Fire websites you visit.

Security of Your Personal Information

Ideas on Fire secures your personal information from unauthorized access, use, or disclosure.

Privacy Within Our Programs:

All Ideas on Fire program content—on the Websites, in any program lessons and activities, and in in-person/video chat discussions—are confidential. By participating in any of our programs, you commit to an ethos of mutual respect, community accountability, and confidentiality.

Some programs involve discussing some intense topics, and we’re all made vulnerable in that. Additionally, folks who are marginalized due to structural oppression (racism, transphobia, misogyny, classism, heterosexism, ableism, etc.) face more negative consequences for voicing their doubts, fears, anxieties, dreams, and goals than those who embody social privileges.

So let’s not be oppressive jerks.

You’re welcome (and encouraged) to share with others your own progress and accomplishments during your enrollment in our programs. However, you are not allowed to share a fellow participant’s written work or verbal statements (“Registered User Content”) without obtaining written consent from them.

Relatedly, you are not allowed to share the contents of or access to any of Ideas on Fire’s program websites with non-participants (people who are not Registered Users). In doing so, you’d be violating the confidentiality and trust of your fellow participants. You would also be violating the Terms of Use and will face legal action.

At the end of each program, you will have the option to download all of the Registered User Content material you shared.

In a nutshell: let’s not be oppressive jerks + we all own our own stuff = happy, productive Ideas on Fire community.

Ideas on Fire does not knowingly collect personally identifiable information from children under the age of thirteen. If you are under the age of thirteen, you should not use our Websites or purchase our programs, products, or services. If you are between the ages of thirteen and eighteen, you should obtain a guardian or parent’s permission before accessing any of our websites.
