I RESPECT YOUR PRIVACY.
I am committed to privacy legislation in the way I collect, use, secure and disclose personal information.
1. What information do I collect from you?
I lawfully collect personal information that is necessary for my business to function. The information I collect and hold will depend upon the services you request from me and may include:
· Information you provide us when you purchase services. This information will include your name, address and contact details.
· Information derived from communications between you and me.
The use of the services available through my website will determine the amount and type of information I collect. The only personal information I collect when you use my website is what you tell me about yourself (i.e. completing the online form when you make a service inquiry, or when you send me an email, I will record your mail address).
To better provide you with my services, I collect two types of information about my users: Personally Identifiable Information and Non-Personally Identifiable Information. My primary goal in collecting information from you is to provide you with a smooth, efficient, and customized experience while using my Site.
Personally Identifiable Information: This refers to information that lets me know the specifics of who you are. When you engage in certain activities on this Site, such as signing up for a newsletter, ordering a service, filling out a survey, or sending me feedback, I may ask you to provide certain information about yourself by filling out and submitting an online form. It is completely optional for you to engage in these activities. If you elect to engage in these activities, however, I may ask that you provide me personal information, such as your first and last name, mailing address (including zip code), e-mail address, employer, job title and department, telephone and facsimile numbers, and other personal identifying information. When ordering services on the Site, you may be asked to provide a credit card number through PayPal. Depending upon the activity, some of the information I ask you to provide is identified as mandatory and some as voluntary. If you do not provide the mandatory data with respect to a particular activity, you will not be able to engage in that activity.
Non-Personally Identifiable Information: This refers to information that does not by itself identify a specific individual. I gather certain information about you based upon where you visit on our Site in several ways. This information is compiled and analyzed on both a personal and an aggregated basis. This information may include the Web Site’s Uniform Resource Locator (“URL”) that you just came from, which URL you go to next, what browser you are using, and your Internet Protocol (“IP”) address. An URL is the global address of documents and other resources on the World Wide Web. An IP address is an identifier for a computer or device on a Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol (“TCP/IP”) network, such as the World Wide Web. Networks like the Web use the TCP/IP protocol to route information based on the IP address of the destination. This is an IP address is a number that is automatically assigned to your computer whenever you are surfing the web, allowing web servers to locate and identify your computer. Computers require IP addresses in order for users to communicate on the Internet.
2. How I use your information
I use the information I collect for the purpose disclosed at the time of collection or otherwise as set out in this Privacy Statement. I will not use your personal information for any other purpose without first seeking your consent, unless authorized or required by law. Generally I will only use and disclose your personal information:
· To establish and maintain your relationship as a customer.
· To provide the services you have requested as a customer.
· To administer and manage those services.
· To answer your inquiries.
· For direct marketing by email or information on services you have shown interest in. If I contact you in this way without obtaining your prior consent, I will provide you with the opportunity to decline any further marketing communications. If you receive any unwanted communication from me, please contact me and I will remove your name from my mailing list.
· I will not sell your personal information to any person or organization.
3. Where do I collect information from you and how do I use it?
I do not collect any Personally Identifiable Information about you unless you voluntarily provide it to me. You provide certain Personally Identifiable Information to me when you:
(a) register for my services and register your e-mail address with me;
(b) send e-mail messages, submit forms or transmit other information by telephone or letter; or
(c) submit your credit card or other payment information when purchasing services on our Site through the connected PayPal platform.
I may also collect information from you at other points on our Site that state that such information is being collected.
I will primarily use your Personally Identifiable Information to provide our services to you, as required by my agreements with you. I will also use Personally Identifiable Information to enhance the operation of my Site, fill orders, improve marketing and promotional efforts, statistically analyze Site use, improve my service offerings, and customize my Site’s content, layout, and services. I may use Personally Identifiable Information to deliver information to you and to contact you regarding administrative notices. I may also use Personally Identifiable Information to resolve disputes, troubleshoot problems and enforce my agreements with you, including our Site Terms and Conditions of Use, and this Private Policy.
4. Who do I share your information with?
I do not sell, trade, or rent your Personally Identifiable Information to others.
Occasionally, I may be required by law enforcement or judicial authorities to provide Personally Identifiable Information to the appropriate governmental authorities. I will disclose Personally Identifiable Information upon receipt of a court order, subpoena, or to cooperate with a law enforcement investigation. I will fully cooperate with law enforcement agencies in identifying those who use our services for illegal activities. I reserve the right to report to law enforcement agencies any activities that I in good faith believe to be unlawful.
5. How can you update your Personally Identifiable Information?
I believe you should have the ability to access and edit the Personally Identifiable Information that you have provided to me. You may access and correct your personal information and privacy preferences by emailing me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please include your name, address, and/or e-mail address when you contact me.
I encourage you to promptly update your Personally Identifiable Information if it changes. You may ask to have the information on your account deleted or removed; however, because I keep track of past transactions, you cannot delete information associated with past transactions on this Site. In addition, it may be impossible to completely delete your information without some residual information because of backups.
6. What are your choices regarding collection, use, and distribution of your information?
I may, from time to time, send you e-mail regarding my services. In addition, if you indicated upon registration that you are interested in receiving offers or information from me, I may occasionally send you direct e-mail about services that I feel may be of interest to you. Only I will send you these e-mails and only if you indicated that you do not object to these offers. If you do not want to receive such mailings, simply tell us when you give us your personal information. Or, at any time you can easily edit your account information to no longer receive such offers and mailings.
7. What security precautions are in place to protect against the loss, misuse, or alteration of your information?
Your security is a top priority at me. I maintain physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards to help guard personally identifiable information. If transactions are offered on the site, transaction information is transmitted in encrypted form using industry-standard Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) connections to help protect such information from interception.
On my Site, you can be assured that your Personally Identifiable Information is secure, consistent with current industry standards. The importance of security for all Personally Identifiable Information associated with my users is my most important concern. In addition, your Personally Identifiable Information resides on my secure equipment & platforms that only I have access to via secure password and multi-step security authorization.
To most efficiently serve you, credit card transactions are handled by an established third party (PayPal). They receive the information needed to verify and authorize your credit card or other payment information and to process your order.
Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet or any wireless network can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while I strive to protect your Personally Identifiable Information, you acknowledge that: (a) there are security and privacy limitations of the Internet which are beyond our control; (b) the security, integrity and privacy of any and all information and data exchanged between you and me through this Site cannot be guaranteed; and (c) any such information and data may be viewed or tampered with in transit by a third party.
8. What should you know about privacy policies & data collection at any third-party Sites accessible from my Site?
9. What else should you know about your privacy online?
You must be at least 18 years old to have our permission to use this Site. My policy is that I do not knowingly collect, use or disclose Personally Identifiable Information about visitors that are under 18 years of age.
