Privacy Policy & Terms and Conditions of SpiritBoard

It is our goal to privide a forum for a positive and open discussion of spiritual matters. Thus, together we strive to:

  • provide a positive place for the spiritual seeker and lightworker
  • discuss with respect and honoring each other's integrity
  • excel together on our spiritual voyage
  • view other opinions, thoughts and inspirations with discernment
  • support spiritual growth and advancement towards the light

In doing so, we agree to:

  • not use vulgar language
  • not intimidate other members
  • not provoke anger
  • not advertise, spam, nor make duplicate or very similar posts
  • use our own words (i.e. not copy and paste from e.g. other websites unless clearly stating the source and identifying the quoted parts, and not copying larger texts, using links to the source instead.)

As a topic oriented community we welcome lightworkers and seekers alike, however we ask people who come with negative intentions to stay away.

To make things legally solid, we have to provide these following more detailed Terms And Conditions:

Yes. Cookies are small files that a site or its service provider transfers to your computer's hard drive through your Web browser (if you allow) that enables the site's or service provider's systems to recognize your browser and capture and remember certain information. For instance, we use cookies to help us remember which posts you have viewed and what your username is. They are also used to help us understand your preferences based on on your setting, which enables us to provide you with improved services.

California Online Privacy Protection Act

CalOPPA is the first state law in the nation to require commercial websites and online services to post a privacy policy. The law's reach stretches well beyond California to require any person or company in the United States (and conceivably the world) that operates websites collecting Personally Identifiable Information from California consumers to post a conspicuous privacy policy on its website stating exactly the information being collected and those individuals or companies with whom it is being shared. - See more at:

According to CalOPPA, we agree to the following:
Users can visit our site anonymously.
Once this privacy policy is created, we will add a link to it on our home page or as a minimum, on the first significant page after entering our website.
Our Privacy Policy link includes the word 'Privacy' and can easily be found on the page specified above.

You will be notified of any Privacy Policy changes:
  • On our Privacy Policy Page
You can change your personal information:
  • by logging in to your account

Does our site allow third-party behavioral tracking?
It's also important to note that we allow third-party behavioral tracking

COPPA (Children Online Privacy Protection Act)

When it comes to the collection of personal information from children under the age of 13 years old, the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) puts parents in control. The Federal Trade Commission, United States' consumer protection agency, enforces the COPPA Rule, which spells out what operators of websites and online services must do to protect children's privacy and safety online.

We do not specifically market to children under the age of 13 years old.

Fair Information Practices

The Fair Information Practices Principles form the backbone of privacy law in the United States and the concepts they include have played a significant role in the development of data protection laws around the globe. Understanding the Fair Information Practice Principles and how they should be implemented is critical to comply with the various privacy laws that protect personal information.

In order to be in line with Fair Information Practices we will take the following responsive action, should a data breach occur:
We will notify you via email
  • Within 1 business day
We also agree to the Individual Redress Principle which requires that individuals have the right to legally pursue enforceable rights against data collectors and processors who fail to adhere to the law. This principle requires not only that individuals have enforceable rights against data users, but also that individuals have recourse to courts or government agencies to investigate and/or prosecute non-compliance by data processors.


The CAN-SPAM Act is a law that sets the rules for commercial email, establishes requirements for commercial messages, gives recipients the right to have emails stopped from being sent to them, and spells out tough penalties for violations.

We collect your email address in order to:
  • Send information such as your post subscriptions or reply notifications, notifications of private messages in your inbox, respond to inquiries, and/or other requests or questions
