When accessing the website, I will learn certain information about you, both automatically and through voluntary actions you may take during your visit. This policy applies to information I collect on the website and in email, text, or other electronic messages between you and the website.
Information Collected About You
When you access the website, certain information about you will be shared during your visit. The website provides various places for users to provide information. I collect information that users provide by filling out forms on the website, communicating with me via contact forms, providing comments on posts, and providing information when ordering a product via the website.
I use information you provide to me to provide the service and/or deliver the requested product, to improve my overall performance, and to provide you with offers, promotions, and information.
Information Collected Through Automatic Data Collection Technology
As you navigate through my website, automatic data collection technologies like Google Analytics collect certain information about your equipment, browsing actions, and patterns. This will generally include information about your location, your traffic pattern through my website, and any communications between your computer and my website. Among other things, I will collect data about the type of computer you use, your Internet connection, your IP address, your operating system, and your browser type.
The information I collect automatically is used for statistical data and does not include personally identifiable information. I use this data to improve my website and my service offerings. To the extent that you voluntarily provide personal information to me through opt in forms, emails, comments, or other feedback, my systems will associate the automatically collected information with your personal information.
Similar to other commercial websites, my website utilizes a standard technology called “cookies” and server logs to collect information about how my site is used. Information gathered through cookies and server logs may include the date and time of visits, the pages viewed, time spent at my site, and the websites visited just before and just after my own, as well as IP addresses.
A cookie is a very small text document, which often includes an anonymous unique identifier. When you visit a website, that site’s computer asks your computer for permission to store this file in a part of your hard drive specifically designated for cookies. Each website can send its own cookie to your browser if your browser’s preferences allow it, but (to protect your privacy) your browser only permits a website to access the cookies it has already sent to you, not the cookies sent to you by other sites.
I reserve the right to use technological equivalents of cookies, including social media pixels. These pixels allow social media sites to track visitors to outside websites so as to tailor advertising messages users see while visiting that social media website. The Company reserves the right to use these pixels in compliance with the policies of the various social media sites.
We do not control these third parties’ tracking technologies or how they may be used. If you have any questions about an advertisement or other targeted content, you should contact the responsible provider directly.
Links To Other Sites
I have no control over, and assume no responsibility for the content, privacy policies or practices of any third party sites or services.
If you choose to correspond with me through email, we may retain the content of your email messages together with your email address and my responses. I provide the same protections for these electronic communications that we employ in the maintenance of information received online, mail, and telephone. This also applies when you register for my website, sign up through any of my forms using your email address or make a purchase on this site. For further information see the email policies below.
If submitted, I am committed to keeping your e-mail address confidential. I do not sell, rent, or lease my subscription lists to third parties, and will not disclose your email address to any third parties except as allowed in the section titled Disclosure of Your Information.
I will maintain the information you send via e-mail in accordance with applicable federal law.
In compliance with the CAN-SPAM Act, all e-mails sent from my organization will clearly state who the e-mail is from and provide clear information on how to contact the sender. In addition, all e-mail messages will also contain concise information on how to remove yourself from my mailing list so that you receive no further e-mail communication from me.
My emails provide users the opportunity to opt-out of receiving communications from me and my partners by reading the unsubscribe instructions located at the bottom of any e-mail they receive from me at anytime.
Users who no longer wish to receive my newsletter or promotional materials may opt-out of receiving these communications by clicking on the unsubscribe link in the e-mail.

How Do I Protect Your Information & Secure Information Transmissions?
The security of your Personal Information is important to me, and I strive to implement and maintain reasonable, commercially acceptable security procedures and practices appropriate to the nature of the information I store, in order to protect it from unauthorized access, destruction, use, modification, or disclosure. However, please be aware that no method of transmission over the internet, or method of electronic storage is 100% secure and I am unable to guarantee the absolute security of the Personal Information I have collected from you.
I employ commercially reasonable methods to ensure the security of the information you provide to me and the information I collect automatically.
Email is not recognized as a secure medium of communication. For this reason, I request that you do not send private information to me by email. However, doing so is allowed, but at your own risk. Credit Card information and other sensitive information is never transmitted via email.
The Company may use software programs to create summary statistics, which are used for such purposes as assessing the number of visitors to my site, what information is of most and least interest, determining technical design specifications, and identifying system performance or problem areas.
For site security purposes and to ensure that this service remains available to all users, the Company uses software programs to monitor network traffic to identify unauthorized attempts to upload or change information, or otherwise cause damage.
