Who Am I?

What Type of Data Do I Collect and Why?

I may collect and process the following data about you:

Buying a service

Your name, email address and IP address at checkout by purchasing one of my services. This is so that I can contact the new customer about their new service.

Mailing lists

Your email address when you request monthly connections in your inbox. I don’t sell, rent or trade email lists with any other organisation or business.

I use a third party provider, MailChimp, to deliver my updates. I gather statistics around email opening and clicks using industry standard technologies to help me monitor and improve my newsletter. For more information, please see MailChimp’s privacy notice. You can unsubscribe to general mailings at any time of the day or night by clicking the unsubscribe link at the bottom of any of my emails.

MailChimp have activated the EU-US Privacy Shield and are qualified and GDPR compliant in order to receive and process your information.

Who Is Collecting the Data?

I handle personal data for my own business.

How is the Data Collected?

Information on my website will be collected in association with your use of a contact form, updates signup form, blog comment or by purchasing a service or resource from my website.

If you contact me using either my online contact form or directly via email, I may keep a record of that correspondence.

When you sign up for my updates, only your email address is added to my mailing list database, which is handled by MailChimp.

When you submit a comment to my website’s blog, the IP address of the device used is stored for my security in the event the author enters unlawful content. Your name and email address are required to submit a comment and this information is stored in the WordPress database.

When purchasing a service or resource from my website, a user must supply their full name and email address so that I may be able to contact them if there is an issue with their order. The IP address of the device used for said purchase is stored in the PayPal database but not matched to any information that may be collected by other components of the website. Services purchased through the Acuity scheduler are also managed through PayPal.

How Easy Is it To Opt-Out?

All ways of collecting personal data on my website are opt-in, and you will always have the opportunity to opt-out. Meaning that in order for me to receive any personal data from you, you will choose to opt-in when filling out any of the forms on my website.

You will always have the opportunity to unsubscribe to my notifications and connections at any time.

If you believe that you have received information from me that you did not opt in to, you should contact me on the details below.

How Secure is Your Personal Data?

Online orders and blog comments data is stored in my website database on a secure server that is password protected.

The payment gateway’s (PayPal) data is stored on their respective servers and is securely backed up and password protected and encrypted.

PayPal has activated EU-US Privacy Shield so is qualified and GDPR compliant in order to receive and process your information. You can access PayPal’s privacy policy here.

I am not responsible for the privacy or security practices of any third party.
