When do I collect personal information?
I collect information from you when you register on this site, subscribe to a newsletter, comment on a blog post, provide me with feedback on my products or services, contact me, or otherwise enter information on this site.
What personal information do I collect?
When you register, subscribe, comment, provide feedback, or contact me, you may be asked to provide your name and email address to facilitate your request or experience.
How do I use your information?
I may use the information I collect from you in the following ways:
- To administer a contest, promotion, survey, or other site feature.
- To send periodic emails regarding your order or other products and services.
- To follow up with you after correspondence.
How do I protect your information?
Your PII is contained behind secured networks and is only accessible by a limited number of persons who have special access rights to such systems, and are required to keep the information confidential. In addition, all sensitive/credit information you supply is encrypted via Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology.
I implement a variety of security measures when a user enters, submits, or accesses their information to maintain the safety of your personal information. All transactions are processed through a gateway provider and are not stored or processed by me.
Do I use “cookies”?
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 enable the site’s or service provider’s systems to recognize your browser and capture and remember certain information.
You can choose to have your computer warn you each time a cookie is being sent, or you can choose to turn off all cookies. You do this through your browser settings. Since every browser is a little different, look at your browser’s Help Menu to learn the correct way to modify your cookies.
If you turn cookies off, some of the features that make your site experience more efficient may not function properly.
I never sell, trade, or otherwise transfer to outside parties your PII unless I provide you with advance notice and receive your permission in writing. This does not include website hosting partners and other parties who assist me in operating this website, conducting my business, or serving my users, so long as those parties agree to keep this information confidential. I may also release personal information when necessary to comply with the law, enforce site policies, or protect my or others’ rights, property, or safety.
I may provide non-PII to other parties for marketing, advertising, or other uses.
Occasionally, at my discretion, I may include or offer third-party products or services on my website. These third-party sites have separate and independent privacy policies. I therefore have no responsibility or liability for the content and activities of these linked sites. Nonetheless, I seek to protect the integrity of my site and welcome any feedback about these third-party sites.
It’s also important to note that I allow third-party behavioral tracking.
Google’s advertising requirements can be summed up by Google’s Advertising Principles. They are put in place to provide a positive experience for users.
I have implemented demographics and interests reporting on my site. Along with third-party vendors such as Google, I use first-party cookies (such as the Google Analytics cookies) and third-party cookies (such as the DoubleClick cookie) or other third-party identifiers together to compile data regarding user interactions with ad impressions and other ad service functions as they relate to this website.
Users can set preferences for how Google advertises to you using the Google Ad Settings page. Alternatively, you can opt out by visiting the Network Advertising Initiative Opt-Out page or by using the Google Analytics Opt-Out Browser add-on.
California Online Privacy Protection Act
According to CalOPPA, I agree to the following:
- Users can visit my site anonymously.
How does my site handle Do Not Track signals?
I honor Do Not Track (DNT) signals and do not track, plant cookies, or use advertising when a DNT browser mechanism is in place.
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, a 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.
I do not specifically market to children under the age of 13 years old, and do not let third-parties, including ad networks or plug-ins, collect PII from children under 13.
Fair Information Practices
The Fair Information Practices 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.
I 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.
I collect your email address in order to:
- Send information, respond to inquiries, and/or other requests or questions.
- Market to my mailing list or continue to send emails to my clients after the original transaction has occurred.
To be in accordance with CAN-SPAM, I agree to the following:
- To not use false or misleading subjects or email addresses.
- To identify the message as an advertisement in some reasonable way.
- To include the physical address of my business or site headquarters.
- To monitor third-party email marketing services for compliance, if one is used.
- To honor opt-out/unsubscribe requests quickly.
- To allow users to unsubscribe by using the link at the bottom of each email.
If at any time you would like to unsubscribe from receiving future emails, you can follow the instructions at the bottom of each email and I will promptly remove you from ALL correspondence.
