This Privacy Policy describes how Ritual Finder LLC collects, uses and discloses information, and what choices you have with respect to the information. This Policy applies to the MysticsforHire.com, HireMystics.com, Ritual Finder LLC subdomains (collectively, the “Site”) and services (collectively, the “Services”). When we refer to “Mystics for Hire”, we mean the Ritual Finder LLC. entity that acts as the controller of your information.

By using the Services, you accept the terms of this Policy and our Terms of Service, and consent to our initial collection, use, disclosure, and retention of your information as described in this Policy and Terms of Service. Please note that this Policy does not apply to information collected through third-party websites or services that you may access through the Services or that you submit to us through email, text message or other electronic message or offline.

If you are visiting this site from the European Union (EU), see our Notice to EU Data Subjects below for our legal bases for processing and transfer of your data.

  1. How We Protect Your Privacy

Ritual Finder LLC is committed to protecting your privacy and uses some of the most sophisticated security software commercially available. Any personal information you submit to us is sent through a secure channel, using SSL/TLS (Secure Sockets Layer/Transport Layer Security) encryption. You can verify this by viewing and/or clicking on the security seal icon visible on the order page.

To verify that your browser is in secure mode, you can check the URL address bar at the top of your browser. This line should show the first characters as “https” when a secure connection has been established, rather than the “http” which indicates that a connection is not secure. Finally, you can also check for a “padlock” or a “key” icon in the Top Right-hand corner of your browser window. To review security features, double-click on the icon. 

In regard to interaction with certain services available on the Ritual Finder LLC websites,  some written communications, such as the messages from practitioners you interact with, may be monitored by Ritual Finder LLC. Ritual Finder LLC does not screen or edit the content of communications between members and Mystics.

(ii) As Anonymized Data. We frequently aggregate or de-identify personal data in a way that makes it impracticable to use that data to identify a particular person; we also sometimes maintain individual data records with personal identifiers removed. In this Privacy Policy, we refer to such data as “Anonymized Data” and do not consider it to be personal data. We may use Anonymized Data in order to create statistical information regarding the Services, the Site and its use, which we may then share with third parties. Though it is impracticable for third parties to use Anonymized Data to identify a particular person, it is possible. Further, we have explained in other sections of this Privacy Policy that in combination with supplemental data taken from other sources, third parties may be able to re-identify you. By using the Site, you understand and acknowledge this risk.

(iii) International Transfer. The Company may have offices outside of the EU and has affiliates and service providers in the United States and in other countries. Your personal information may be transferred to or from the United States or other locations outside of your state, province, country or other governmental jurisdiction where privacy laws may not be as protective as those in your jurisdiction. EU users should read the important information provided  below about transfer of personal information outside of the European Economic Area (EEA).

6.     Social Media Features and Widgets.

Our Site may integrate with social sharing features or other related tools which let you share actions you take on our Site with other apps, sites or media, and vice versa. These features may enable the sharing of information with your friends or the public, depending on the settings you establish with the social sharing site. For example, you may click on a Twitter “like” button, which publishes to your Twitter account that you “like” one of the pictures or profiles featured on the Site. These features may also collect your IP address and which page you are visiting on our Site, and may set a cookie to enable the feature to function properly. Your interaction with these features are governed by the privacy policy of the relevant social sharing site. Please refer to the privacy policies of those social sharing sites for more information. As stated below, we cannot control Site visitors’ and users’ use of any such information or content you choose to make available publicly.

7.     “Do Not Track” Signals

8.     How Information is Secured

(a)   We retain information we collect as long as it is necessary and relevant to fulfill the purposes outlined in this privacy policy. In addition, we retain personal information to comply with applicable law where required, prevent fraud, resolve disputes, troubleshoot problems, assist with any investigation, enforce our Terms of Service, and other actions permitted by law. To determine the appropriate retention period for personal information, we consider the amount, nature, and sensitivity of the personal information, the potential risk of harm from unauthorized use or disclosure of your personal information, the purposes for which we process your personal information and whether we can achieve those purposes through other means, and the applicable legal requirements. 

(b)  In some circumstances we may anonymize your personal information (so that it can no longer be associated with you) in which case we may use this information indefinitely without further notice to you.  

(c)   We employ industry standard security measures designed to protect the security of all information submitted through the Services. However, the security of information transmitted through the internet can never be guaranteed. We are not responsible for any interception or interruption of any communications through the internet or for changes to or losses of data. Users of the Services are responsible for maintaining the security of any password, user ID or other form of authentication involved in obtaining access to password protected or secure areas of any of our digital services.

(a)   Accessing, Updating, Correcting, and Deleting your Information:

You can request to change contact choices, opt-out of our sharing with others, and update your personal information and preferences. 

(ii) Please note that other users may be able to identify you, or associate you with your account, if you include personal data in the content you post publicly. We are not responsible for, and this Privacy Policy does not apply to, information you choose to post publicly.

(iii) Please note that we have the right to reject deletion requests that are inconsistent with our Terms of Use, are unduly burdensome or repetitive or that cannot be honored in light of legal obligations or ongoing disputes, or where retention is necessary to enforce our agreements or protect our or another party’s rights, property, safety, or security. For example, we may retain information to prevent, investigate, or identify possible wrongdoing in connection with the Site or to comply with legal obligations. The time-period for which we keep information varies according to the information’s use. In some cases, there are legal requirements to keep data for a minimum period. Unless there is a specific legal requirement for us to keep the information, we plan to retain it for no longer than is necessary to fulfill a legitimate business need. Please also note that even after you have deleted your account, other content associated with your use of the Site may still be accessible and viewable in accordance with applicable law and our Terms of Use. 

(b)  We may retain Anonymized Data after you delete your account for analytics purposes.
