By using the Site, you agree to the collection and use of information in accordance with this policy.
What is Personal Information?
Personal information is information that can be used to identify you. It may include, but is not limited to, your name, email address, mailing address, phone number, etc.

Your Personal Information may be used for any of the following reasons:
- To send you email newsletters, marketing, promotional materials, or other information that may be of interest (with consent)
- You may opt out of receiving any, or all, of these communications from me by following the unsubscribe link or instructions provided in the emails I send. If you opt-out of our email newsletter, you will still receive applicable transactional and account emails

Like most websites, my Site also collects information that your browser or device sends whenever you visit my Site, known as “Log Data.” This Log Data may include information such as your computer’s Internet Protocol (“IP”) address, browser type, browser version, the pages of my Site that you visit, the time and date of your visit, the time spent on those pages and other statistics. In addition, I use third party services such as Google Analytics that collect, monitor and analyze this type of information in order to provide performance and traffic reports, as well as to analyze and improve my Site’s functionality. Learn more about how Google Analytics collects and processes your data here.
Cookies are files with small amounts of data, which can include an anonymous unique identifier that allows the Site to recognize your browser and remember certain information. They do not include your Personal Information. Cookies are sent to your browser from websites and stored on your computer’s hard drive. Like many sites, I use “cookies” to:
- Understand and save user preferences for future visits
- Collect and compile aggregate data for analytics. I use trusted third-party services that track this information on our behalf.
You can instruct your browser to refuse all cookies or to indicate when a cookie is being sent. However, if you do not accept cookies, you may not be able to use some of the key portions of my Site.
How is my Personal Information Protected?
I am committed to ensuring the security of your Personal Information and take reasonable administrative and technical measures to protect your data. For example, my Site is protected with secure socket layer (SSL) technology, which encrypts all information entered on the site. Your credit card number is not stored or processed on my servers. Rather, all transactions are encrypted and sent to my payment gateway provider for processing, as per the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS). My Site also makes use of passwords, breach protection software, firewalls, restricted employee access, and other security measures to keep your Personal Information safe. I will use appropriate security measures when destroying your Personal Information such as shredding documents or deleting electronically stored information, in our discretion.
Remember that no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure. While I strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your Personal Information, I cannot guarantee its absolute security. In the event of a security breach, I will inform the authorities and all affected parties in accordance with applicable law.
Who Has Access to My Personal Information?
I only use your data to ensure user experience and functionality and to improve our business and website. I also employ trusted third parties to facilitate some of these tasks. These third parties have access to your Personal Information only to perform these tasks on my behalf and are obligated not to disclose or use it for any other purpose. These third parties include my website administrator, software developers, payment gateway provider, web hosting provider, analytics provider, social media provider(s), and email marketing service provider (with prior consent). I will not sell your Personal Information to other parties.
How Long is my Data Retained?
I retain your Personal Information for the time necessary to fulfill the identified purposes or a legal or business purpose. Aggregate data is stored by our analytics provider for up to 26 months.
How Can I Access, Correct, or Delete my Personal Information?
I will make reasonable efforts to ensure that your Personal Information is accurate and complete. You may request access to your Personal Information to view, save, or reuse. You have the right to request corrections to your Personal Information if required. You may also request deletion of your Personal Information (although I are not required to erase any data that may be necessary for other legal purposes, e.g., tax purposes). All such requests must be in writing and must provide sufficient detail to identify your Personal Information and the action being requested.
How Can I Limit the Collection of My Data?
Some features of the Site require the collection of your Personal Information, e.g., the subscribe and contact forms. While the Site takes measures to protect the submission of your Personal Information (see section on Security above), if you do not wish to submit your information online, it is possible to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The ability to view and analyze data through my third party data processor, Google Analytics, is important for improving our Site and user experience. As per Google Analytics’ Terms of Service, this information does not include personally identifying information. However, if you still wish to prevent Google Analytics from collecting data from your browsing session(s) on the Site, you can download and install a browser extension to disable Google Analytics tracking.
If you do not wish to receive marketing communications such as email newsletters, other promotional materials, or other information that may be of interest, you can simply choose not to opt-in to my email list. If you are already on my email list and wish to opt out, instructions can be found at the bottom of my email newsletters. Keep in mind, if you opt out of my email list, you will still receive important emails regarding your online orders and your account (if applicable).
Third-Party Links and References
I sometimes include links or references to third-party websites or businesses on my Site. These third parties have their own privacy policies in place for how they collect, use, and disclose your Personal Information. I am not responsible or liable for the content and activities of these linked sites or businesses, but welcome your feedback on their policies.
My Service does not address anyone under the age of 18 (“Minor”).
I do not knowingly collect personally identifiable information from Minors. If you are a parent or guardian and you are aware that your Minor has provided me with Personal Information, please contact us. Once I am made aware that I have collected Personal Information from Minors without verification of parental consent, I will take steps to remove that information from our servers.
