INFORMATION COLLECTION, USE, AND SHARING
I am the sole owner of the information collected on this site. I only have access to collect information that you voluntarily give me via email or other direct contacts from you. I will not sell or rent this information to anyone.
I will use your information to respond to you regarding the reason you contacted me. I will not share your information with any third party outside of my company other than as necessary to respond to your request.
YOUR ACCESS TO AND CONTROL OVER INFORMATION
You may opt-out of any future contacts from me at any time. You can do the following at any time by contacting me via the email address or phone number provided on my website below:
See what data I have about you, if any.
- Change/correct any data I have about you
- Have me delete any data I have about you
- Express any concern you have about my use of your data
No registration is required to use this website.
I take precautions to protect your information. When you submit sensitive information via the website, your information is protected both online and offline.
Wherever I collect sensitive information (such as credit card data), that information is encrypted and securely transmitted. You can verify this by looking for a closed lock icon at the bottom of your web browser or looking for “https” at the beginning of the web page address.
While I use encryption to protect sensitive information transmitted online, I also protect your information offline. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job (e.g., billing or customer service) are granted access to personally identifiable information. The computers/servers on which I store personally identifiable information are kept in a secure environment.
I use “cookies” on this site. A cookie is a piece of data stored on a site visitor’s hard drive to help me improve your access to my site and identify repeat visitors to my site. For instance, when I use a cookie to identify you, you would not have to log in a password more than once, thereby saving time while on my site. Cookies can also enable me to track and target my users’ interests to enhance their experience on my site. Usage of a cookie is in no way linked to any personally identifiable information on my site.
This website contains links to other sites. Please be aware that I am not responsible for the content or privacy practices of such other sites. I encourage my users to be aware when they leave my site and to read the privacy statements of any other site that collects personally identifiable information.
NOTIFICATION OF CHANGES
Whenever material changes are made to the privacy notice, I will notify you via this website and/or by email, if I have a valid email address for you.
CALIFORNIA ONLINE PRIVACY PROTECTION ACT
ACCORDING TO CALOPPA, I AGREE TO THE FOLLOWING:
- Users can visit my site anonymously
- Via email, if I have a valid email address
HOW DOES MY SITE HANDLE DO NOT TRACK SIGNALS?
I honor do not track signals and do not track plant cookies or use advertising when a Do Not Track (DNT) browser mechanism is in place.
DOES MY SITE ALLOW THIRD-PARTY BEHAVIORAL TRACKING?
It’s important to note that I allow third-party behavioral tracking.
COPPA (CHILDREN ONLINE PRIVACY PROTECTION ACT)
When it comes to collecting personal information from children under 13, the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) puts parents in control. The Federal Trade Commission, the nation’s 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 13.
