Privacy Policy and Cookies

Your privacy is important to me. To better protect your privacy, I provide this notice explaining our online information practices and the choices you can make about the way your information is collected and used.

In the nutshell, here is the most important stuff…

What do we use your information for?

Any of the information we collect from you may be used in one of the following ways:

  • To personalize your experience – Your information helps us to make purchasing a product more personal.
  • To improve customer service – Your information helps us to be more effective in our response to your customer service requests and support needs.
  • To process transactions – Your information, whether public or private, will not be sold, exchanged, transferred, or given to any other company for any reason whatsoever, without your consent, other than for the express purpose of delivering the purchased product or service requested.

How do we protect your information?

We implement a variety of security measures to maintain the safety of your personal information when you place an order or enter, submit, or access your personal information.

If you buy any of my eproducts, your transaction is handled by a third party called SendOwl. SendOwl is amazing and actually based in the EU and is fully GDPR compliant.

Do we use cookies?

Cookies are small files that a site or its service provider transfers to your computer’s hard drive through your web browser (if you allow this in your browser settings). Cookies enable a site’s or service provider’s systems to recognize your browser and capture and remember certain information. This enables a more customized browsing experience when visiting a site and can prevent site visitors from having to manually customize their site experience on each visit.

Do we disclose any information to outside parties?

We do not sell, trade, or otherwise transfer to outside parties any of your personally identifiable information. This does not include trusted third parties who assist us in operating our website, conducting our business, or servicing you, so long as those parties agree to keep this information confidential. We may also release your information when we believe release is appropriate to comply with the law, enforce our site policies, or protect ours or others rights, property, or safety. However, non-personally identifiable visitor information may be provided to other parties for marketing, advertising, or other uses.

Third party links

Occasionally, at our discretion, we may include or offer third-party products or services on our website. These third-party sites have separate and independent privacy policies. We, therefore, have no responsibility or liability for the content and activities of these linked sites. Nonetheless, we seek to protect the integrity of our site and welcome any feedback about these sites.

Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act Compliance

We are in compliance with the requirements of COPPA (Childrens Online Privacy Protection Act) and we do not collect any information from anyone under 13 years of age. Our website, products, and services are all directed to people who are at least 13 years old or older.

Online Privacy Policy Only

This online privacy policy applies only to information collected through our website and not to information collected offline.
