Our Privacy Policy

Our Privacy Policy

 Your privacy is a top priority at the Seven Wisdoms Insitute. In our constant commitment to your privacy, we have a few fundamental rules within which we run our business.

  • We don't ask you for your personal information unless we truly need it to provide you with the information, products and/or services that you request.

  • We respect your rights! We only want to send articles, newsletters, and advertisements to people who ask for them. Therefore, our e-mails are broadcast only to people who opted-in (subscribed on our website, joined the membership, or made a purchase).

  • Seven Wisdoms Institute, LLC is the parent company that includes the brands: RickVrenios.com, ReikiCouncil.com, and KeAlaKahiko.com.  Each brand has a unique focus in their services that may have attracted your interest, although all purchases for any of these companies are processed by Seven Wisdoms Institute.  That said, you may receive e-mails sent from any of those identities.

  • Subscribers can opt-out automatically so you don't need to rely on a human to do it for you. Plus, when you opt-out, you are opted out immediately. If you no longer wish to participate in our e-mail broadcasts, you can unsubscribe automatically using the links in the body of the broadcast e-mail.

  • We dislike spam as much as you do! Therefore, we never sell, rent, share, or otherwise distribute your personal information with anyone... period. On rare occasion, we may send e-mails about other people and services we believe you will find interesting. But, the e-mail will always come from us. The only exception to this personal mandate is if we are obligated to comply with the law, protect our rights, or develop our products and services.

  • We don't store information unless it is necessary for the ongoing operations of our business. Any stored information is held in PCI-compliant, GDPR-compliant, secure servers.  Your financial data is never stored or processed on any of our personally controlled web sites.

Based on the above mentioned principles, The Seven Wisdoms Institute, LLC is committed to ensuring that your privacy is protected. Should we ask you to provide certain information by which you can be identified when using this website, then you can be assured that it will only be used in accordance with this privacy statement.
