I respect your privacy and will never share your information with anyone without your consent (unless legally required to do so) – not even my mother.
Of course, everyone says this, and we still end up getting too much email, too many phone calls, and enough junk in our mailboxes to make the Sunday paper look tiny by comparison. So this page is here to lay out for you exactly how I protect your privacy.
This site (and virtually every commercial site on the internet) employs software that tracks information about your browsing habits.
Information you enter into any forms (contact, order, or other forms) is be stored and can be viewed by me and my staff. This is necessary, because I have to know where to send emails you request or products you purchase. All of this info is stored on secure servers and sensitive details such as credit card numbers are encrypted. I keep payment details on file to facilitate recurring payments and refunds, but I cannot actually view your details.
If you send me an email, I may use your wording in a testimonial, but you will never be identified without explicit permission.
I promise not to use any information you provide for evil purposes or share it with anyone without your consent (unless legally required to do so). Ever.
If you have any questions regarding my policies and terms of service, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.
OK, so that’s the simple version.
