Why we value privacy
I am committed to your privacy. I appreciate that you’ve trusted me with personal information, and I treat it as if it were my own. By this I mean that I do not sell, rent, lease, or give away personal information such as your email address, phone number, name, etc. Your information will only be used for internal purposes. By giving me your email address, you have given me permission to send you emails periodically unless you specifically request otherwise.
How we collect information
In order to use certain sections of this website, you must first complete the registration form. During registration you are required to give your name and email address to receive the services you have requested. You have the option to provide more demographic information. I use this to provide a more personalized experience on the site.
What information we hold
- When you contact us by email or through our website, we may collect all or some of this information: your name, email address, phone number, IP address and social media handles.
- If you sign up for an email newsletter, we collect your name and email address.
- If you choose to participate in a survey, you have a choice whether or not to disclose contact information, such as: name, address, zip code, age level.
What we do with that information
We are the sole owner of the information collected on this site. We do not sell, share, or rent this information to others in ways different from what is disclosed in this statement.
We send all new members a welcome email to verify username and password. Established members will occasionally receive information on products, services, special deals, and a newsletter. Out of respect for the privacy of our users we present the option to not receive these types of communications.
We use IP addresses to analyze trends, administer the site, track user’s movement, and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use.
