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.

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.

Privacy Within Our Courses and Online Communities
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 and communities 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 and communities. However, you are not allowed to share a fellow participant’s written or verbal statements (“Registered User Content”) without obtaining written consent from them.
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.
