PRIVACY AND SECURITY POLICY

This policy is a demonstration of my commitment to protecting and ensuring the security of your privacy, as I would my own, by continually working to ensure its protection and working to update my systems as necessary. I will manage your information confidentially and securely, and destroy it securely when no longer required. It may be necessary, during the course of business, to share your personal data with my agents, service providers or government authorities. I will always do so in a manner that respects this policy. There is some data that is collected in an aggregate and always anonymous manner through such services as website analytics. This data will never be reviewed at an individual level and does not identify you, and is therefore not considered personal information. I just want to keep you in the loop about all forms of data gathering. This information is used to analyze trends and statistics. Computer genius stuff! Emails that you send to me are not secure. For that reason I will never ask for credit card numbers or other sensitive personal information to be sent via email. My mailing list is always compiled voluntarily. You have either signed up at a show, in a class or online. I will always provide an unsubscribe option. I do not add names gathered through contests, to my mailing list. But I can tell you that joining the mailing list will give you access to lots of fun information and inspiration. Except where information is transferred as part of the sale of the business, I will not, under any circumstances, sell confidential customer information to anyone for marketing purposes, unless I have so advised this on collection of the information or otherwise obtained your consent. I will retain your information as long as it is required for the purposes identified when you provided the information or for any new purposes identified and consented to by you. Certain information is retained for longer periods for audit purposes. We may disclose information about you as required by law. I reserve the right to change or update this Security and Privacy Policy, or any of the Terms and Conditions, in the spirit of my mandate, at any time and to apply the changed practices to all information we have about you. If changes are made, they will be posted on this website, effectively immediately upon posting, changing the date on the policy to reflect the change. By using this website, and blog, you agree to accept the terms of this Security and Privacy Policy as stated at the time you use it. Any future use of the website and blog, subsequent to the changes will be deemed as your acceptance of the new Security and Privacy Policy as then revised.
