Policies Privacy & Spam Policy
Effective date: May 25, 2018
Hi, there. It’s Kelly Harrell. Before I dive into the boring details of the Privacy Policies here at Money Tree Academy (MTA), I want you to know that I care about the use of your information and believe in ‘do unto others as you would have them do unto you’.
What Personal Information is Collected
First, it’s important to define ‘personal data’. Specifically, this is information such as your name, your IP address, and your email address. There are a number of ways in which MTA could collect your information.
If you are in the EU (or anywhere else in the world), here it what is collected:
- If you opt-in to the newsletter, an email course, blog post notifications, or request a free product or service: Your name and email address
- If you submit a question or request via the Contact Form on the MTA contact page: Your name, email address, any additional contact information you share, along with any questions you might ask or comments made
- If you complete a transaction through the MTA site: Your name, email address, all necessary billing and payment information required to complete the transaction
- If you Comment on a blog post: Your comment plus any metadata
To ensure that MTA adheres to legal best practices, your consent will be explicitly stated or requested in the following scenarios:
- When opting in to offers
- When requesting to receive email newsletter updates
- When purchasing products
- When requesting to receive blog post notifications
- When submitting questions, comments or requests via the Contact Form on the MTA site – your data is required in order to reply
Your consent will not be requested when there is a legal basis for not doing so, such as:
- When purchasing an item on the MTA website – we are legally required to collect your payment information
Who Has Access to the Collected Data
- For financial transactions: The payment processing systems (as legally required)
- For email communications: The email service providers (but not for their own commercial purposes, only to administrate the service for MTA)
- For website visits: Google (for general data collection on traffic for use by MTA)
- In general: Support staff that helps MTA to administer services and communications to visitors, customers, and clients (and not for their own commercial purposes)

Money Tree Academy uses services like Google Analytics to collect and store general technical information about your visit to our website. We use this information for statistical purposes only and will never provide this information to a third party.

This information helps MTA learn what kinds of content are (or are not) of interest to visitors, how outreach and marketing efforts perform, and other generalized data such as the type of device (desktop or mobile) is being used to view the site.
How Long Is Your Data Kept
Any personal data shared is kept for varying lengths depending on the original reason for collection. Financial transaction information may be kept up to 7 years for tax audit purposes. Non-financial data tends to be kept up to 3 years, unless an active relationship (through business conducted or engagement with communications) with the user is maintained. Comments on blog posts are stored, indefinitely.

In addition to the data shown in the comments form, the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string are collected to help spam detection.
Beyond what is outlined above, no personal information is ever shared or sold to a third party.
