WHAT'S IT ALL MEAN?
The type of personal info I collect:
I collect your first name and email (which has been voluntarily submitted by you) and IP address each time you:
- Subscribe to my newsletter
- Leave a comment on my site
- Fill out the contact form on my website
- Purchase a product from my website
Credit Card Info
All payments are processed through Paypal, Square or Squarespace, so I do not store (or have access to) any credit card info.
Where your data is stored:
Your data is stored in Chimpmail, the newsletter tool I use to submit my newsletter. It can also be stored at my studio and within my database. When you purchase a product, then your name and email are also stored on the squarespace database.
Security of data:
Keeping your data safe is important to me. My site is encrypted to enhance privacy and security.
Unfortunately, no data transmission over the internet is 100% secure. While I take measures to keep your data safe and secure, I cannot ensure the security of any personal data transmitted via the internet. When you transmit personal data to me via my website, you do so at your own risk.
You agree that I (Suzanne Warfield) am not responsible for any intercepted information shared through my site without my knowledge or permission. Additionally, you release me from any and all claims arising out of or related to the use of such intercepted information in any unauthorized manner.
What I do with your data:
The personal data I collect (which you have voluntarily submitted) such as name and email, is used to communicate with you (ie: sending newsletters). The other anonymous data I collect via Google Analytics is used to improve my site and services.
How long I keep your data:
Newsletter: I keep your name/email on file until you opt out by unsubscribing (you can unsubscribe anytime by clicking on the “unsubscribe” link at the bottom of my newsletter).
*Once you unsubscribe from a mailing list, you will no longer get email from me, and your name/email/IP address will be deleted.
Leaving a comment: If you leave a comment on my site, your email and IP address are only visible to me but your name/email/IP address is retained indefinitely, unless you contact me directly and ask to have it removed.
Filling out my contact form: If you contact me via my contact page, your email/name/IP is retained for up to 3 months, after which I clear out all old messages.
How to Opt Out:
If you no longer wish you receive emails from me, you can unsubscribe anytime by clicking on the “unsubscribe” link at the bottom of the newsletter. Or, you can contact me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org to have your name/email removed.
Your personal data is never sold, leased, or shared with any third parties, with the exception of third parties who assist me in operating my website and conducting business. These third parties include Mailchimp, Bluehost, Square and Squarespace. These trusted third parties agree to keep this information secure and confidential. Your personal information will never be shared with unrelated third parties.
