This document outlines the types of personal and non-personal information this site receives and collects when you use Beginningartist.com, as well as some of the steps I take to safeguard that information. This should help you make an informed decision about sharing personal information with me.
At Beginningartist.com I strive to maintain the highest standards of integrity in all my operations. Likewise, I am dedicated to protecting my customers' and online visitors' privacy on this website.
Beginningartist.com only collects personally identifiable information from you if you choose to provide it. Personal information collected on a voluntary basis may include name, email address, postal address and telephone number.
Some of this information is collected if you: request information, participate in a quiz or assessment, sign up for my blog or purchase a service or product. The information collected is used to improve the content and products offered on Beginningartist.com, to complete the purchase or delivery of a product or service, to notify visitors of updates or to respond to visitor inquiries. Beginningartist.com never sells any personal information.
Most personal information you provide is collected and stored through third parties I use for that purpose. For instance, to receive my blog posts your name and email address are stored on the servers of Mail Chimp or DRIP, my email providers.
If you purchase a product or service, my payment processor PayPal will collect your name, address, billing address, email address and credit card number. That information will be stored on their servers. PayPal will share your name, address and email address with Beginningartist.com so I can deliver the product or service you purchased.
All third parties I use comply with new stricter privacy standards set by the European Union.
You can always refuse to supply personally identifiable information and visit our site anonymously. However, doing that will prevent you from engaging in certain site-related activities.
If Beginningartist.com changes how it collects or uses personally identifiable information I will inform you by placing a notice on this site. Please be assured that personal information received from any visitor will only be used for the internal operations of Beginningartist.com. Your information will never be sold or given to others for commercial purposes – with one possible exception (see Release of Information below).
Caution: Beginningartist.com contains links to other websites that may be of interest to you. However, once you click on a link to leave our site, I do not have any control over that other website.
