(Last revised April 18, 2015)

The Privacy Policy below governs the Eternal Divine Path, The Mission Of Maitreya, and any information that has been provided by visitors to this site.

A. Introduction

In order to reduce the risk of fraud, the Eternal Divine Path, The Mission Of Maitreya (“Mission” or “we”) must sometimes ask you to provide us information about yourself.  This Privacy Policy describes the information we collect and how we use that information.  The Mission takes the privacy of your personal information very seriously and will use your information only in accordance with the terms of this Privacy Policy.  We will not sell or rent your personal identifiable information or a list of our customers to third parties.  However, as described in more detail in Part C below, there are limited circumstances in which some of your information will be shared with third parties, under strict restrictions, so it is important for you to review this Privacy Policy.

This Privacy Policy is almost never changed, and nearly all changes are immaterial (grammar, word choice, etc.) and do not affect our use of your information.  If a significant change is made, it will most likely be announced on our News Flash page.  If at any time you would like to review this Policy, it is easily accessible from the bottom of any page on our web site under "Policies," and the most recent date that changes were made is listed at the top of this page (under the title).  Therefore you can always easily see what information we currently gather, how we might use that information, and whether we will disclose it to anyone.

Third Party Sites
The Mission web site includes links to third party Web sites.  These sites are governed by their own privacy statements, and the Mission is not responsible for their operations, including but not limited to their information practices.  Users submitting information to or through these third party Web sites should review the privacy statements of these sites before providing them with personally identifiable information.  Note that this includes our print on demand publishers and e-commerce site (everywhere that Mission materials are sold) and applies to the financial and other information you may provide at these sites.

B. Information We Collect

Required Information
To receive the Mission Newsbrief and join the Mission mailing list, you are requested to provide your e-mail address. 

Web Site Traffic Information
Because of the way that World Wide Web communication standards work, our site provider might gather some statistical data of your visit.  We also might gather very basic information from your visit (what kind of browser you use, whether your browser is set to accept cookies, etc.).  We use this information only to try to understand our customers’ preferences better and to manage our site better, so as to improve our service and your experience with the Mission.  We do not track the web sites that you visit before or after you leave the Mission site.

Third Party Cookies
Some of the third party services on our site, such as AddThis and Google Search, send cookies to your computer to gather non-personally identifiable information for purposes such as analytics and targeted web advertising.  These are persistent cookies, meaning they do not immediately expire and remain on your hard drive for an extended period of time (although they can easily be removed manually by deleting your browser cookies, or through various services provided by antivirus and utility-type programs).  These cookies may be sent even if you never use these third party services.  We are bound to allow these third party services to send cookies if we wish to use their services on our site.  In other words: We have no control over these cookies and their existence is not our doing.  In fact, any site that uses these services will have the same issue.

The use of these cookies, and the collection and use of any information gained by them, is governed by the individual Privacy Policies of these third party services (for example, see the relevant section of the AddThis Privacy Policy).  We have no access or connection to the information they gather, with one exception: Some of these third party services share with us non-personally identifiable usage and volume statistical information (e.g. graphs showing what pages of the website are shared the most and how they are shared).  All such data is completely anonymous, is not shared with any other third parties, and is used by us only to gain information on site usage and improve our site's quality.

Customer Service Correspondence
If you send us correspondence, including e-mails and faxes, we retain such information in our records.  We will also retain customer service correspondence and other correspondence from the Mission to you.  We retain these records in order to measure and improve our customer service, and to investigate potential fraud and violations of our Terms of Use.  We may, over time, delete these records if permitted by law.

C. Our Use and Disclosure of Information

Internal Uses
We use the information we collect about you in order to 1) provide our services, 2) provide customer service, 3) improve our products and services.

We give access to individually identifiable information about our users only to those employees who require it to fulfill customer service requests.

Disclosure to Third Parties
The Mission will not sell or rent any of your personally identifiable information to third parties.  The Mission will not share any of your personally identifiable information with third parties except in the limited circumstances described below, or with your express permission.  These third parties are limited by law or by contract from using the information for secondary purposes beyond the purposes for which the information is shared.

  1. We disclose information that we in good faith believe is appropriate to cooperate in investigations of fraud or other illegal activity, or to conduct investigations of violations of our Terms of Use.

  2. We disclose information in response to a subpoena, warrant, court order, levy, attachment, order of a court-appointed receiver or other comparable legal process, including subpoenas from private parties in a civil action.

  3. We disclose information to your agent or legal representative (such as the holder of a power of attorney that you grant, or a guardian appointed for you).

Our Contacts with Mission Visitors
We communicate with our visitors on a regular basis via e-mail and/or phone to provide requested services.  We use your e-mail address to confirm the validity of your information, to send you notice of payments that you send or receive through the Mission, to send information about important changes to our products and services, and to send notices and other disclosures required by law.  Generally, users cannot opt-out of these communications, but they will be informational in nature rather than promotional.

We also use your e-mail address to send you other types of communications that you can control, such as the Mission Newsbrief.  You can choose whether or not to receive these emails, and can request removal from our mailing list at any time by using the "Unsubscribe" option provided in all of them (Privacy by SafeSubscribe through our mailing list provider Constant Contact).

D. Information Security

The Mission is committed to handling your customer information with high standards of information security.  We restrict access to your personally identifiable information to employees who need to know that information in order to provide products or services to you.
