Privacy Agreement

Last updated on May 21, 2018


I am committed to protecting your privacy. This Privacy Agreement applies to my website, email mailing list, and all electronic communications. This Privacy Agreement addresses how all data collection occurs, how it is processed, and how it is used.

This Privacy Agreement also describes your choices regarding your data’s use, access, and changes made to your personal information. By using my website, joining my mailing list, or by communicating with me electronically, you agree and consent to the practices explained in this Privacy Agreement. If you do not agree, you should not use my website, join my mailing list, or communicate with me electronically.

I reserve the right to make periodic updates to this Privacy Agreement without prior notice. The most recent version will be available on my website.

This Privacy Agreement is in-line with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) in effect in the European Union. To ensure this compliance, opt-ins to my mailing lists will clearly state what people are signing up for. When signing up for my mailing list, you will receive an email confirmation that includes the latest version of this Privacy Agreement. You will have the opportunity to read this Privacy Agreement before confirming again that you would like to be added to my mailing list.

Every six months, while subscribed to my mailing list, you will receive an email asking if you still wish to remain subscribed. If you do, you will have the opportunity to review this Privacy Agreement prior to accepting to stay on my mailing list.  

With respect to personal data received, no lists held outside of my mailing list and its related software databases will be kept. It is possible that an authorized person other than myself may access your personal data while working on my system. This may include service providers, such as IT Support, administrative assistants, and the like. All reasonable efforts will be made to ensure your data is only accessed on a need to know basis, and that a Confidentiality and Non-Disclosure Agreement covers the time any service provider has access to my internal data system.

I will retain your personal information for as long as you are a current client, remain on my mailing list, or hold an outstanding balance with my business. Your data will continue to remain in my system, for as long as needed to comply with my legal obligations, resolve disputes and enforce our agreements. Once your personal information is no longer required, I will securely delete your personal information.

To unsubscribe from my mailing list, please click on the "unsubscribe" link located at the bottom of my mailing list emails. You can also let me know that you wish to unsubscribe by emailing me at [email protected].

My website will be maintained with SSL protocol (which means my URL begins with “https”). All my key legal documents will be found on each page of my website, in the footer. There you will find my Terms and Conditions and this Privacy Agreement.

If any lawful request is made of me, by a public law enforcement or nation security agency to share personal data of any kind, I reserve the right to comply with the request as necessary to protect my rights, guard your safety, my safety, or the safety of others, or to aid the investigation of fraud, comply with the law, a court order, or any other legal process.

In the case of a dispute regarding services, binding arbitration will be utilized only after other dispute resolution remedies have been exhausted.

Collected information, including credit card information, personal financial account information, billing information, personal identification and the like will only be requested and collected on a need-to-know basis. You will not be required to provide any of these types of details when visiting my website, unless you are purchasing a product or service via my website.

Only navigational information will be tracked when you visit my website. This includes information about your computer and your visits to this website, such as your IP address, geographical location, browser type, referral source, length of visit and pages viewed.

Electronic payments are managed through a third-party PCI-compliant service provider. You will be able to review the applicable privacy policies prior to making a purchase.

I will never sell your personal information to any third party.
