COPPA (Children Online Privacy Protection Act)
When it comes to the collection of personal information from children under 13, the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) puts parents in control. The Federal Trade Commission, the nation’s consumer protection agency, enforces the COPPA Rule, which spells out what operators of websites and online services must do to protect children’s privacy and safety online. I do not specifically market to children under 13.
Fair Information Practices
The Fair Information Practices Principles form the backbone of privacy law in the United States and the concepts they include have played a significant role in the development of data protection laws around the globe. Understanding the Fair Information Practice Principles and how they should be implemented is critical to comply with the various privacy laws that protect personal information.
In order to be in line with Fair Information Practices, I will take the following responsive action, should a data breach occur: I will notify the users via email within 1 business day.
We also agree to the Individual Redress Principle, which requires that individuals have a right to pursue legally enforceable rights against data collectors and processors who fail to adhere to the law. This principle requires not only that individuals have enforceable rights against data users, but also that individuals have recourse to courts or government agencies to investigate and/or prosecute non-compliance by data processors.

EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR):
Who is collecting the data?
I use AWeber to manage my email list. Google Analytics collects anonymized data about you, which I use to better understand how users are interacting with the site and how I can improve. I also collect general contact data when a contact form is submitted. This data is not stored on the server and is sent directly to the administrative email.
What data is being collected?
Data such as general location, referral source, and other anonymized data is recorded via Google Analytics. I also record your IP address when you attempt to log in to the website (whether said log-in is successful or not). When signing up for a newsletter or completing another form, I may ask for your name, phone number, email address, or mailing address. Additionally, if you are a part of my email newsletter through AWeber, I may track which pages you visit on my site on a non-anonymous basis. I do this so that I can send follow-up offers based on your interest in my site. I do make use of a “Facebook Pixel” which anonymously (to us) tracks who visits our site and allows us to follow-up via targeted Facebook ads.
Will the data be shared with any third parties?
See “Third-Party Disclosure” – but the answer is no.
How long will the data be stored?
Anonymized analytics data is stored with Google Analytics indefinitely. You can opt-out of Google Analytics reporting. When it comes to newsletters or order information, I perform “scrubs” of inactive users on a yearly basis. You may unsubscribe at any time.
What rights does the data subject have?
You may unsubscribe from emails at any given time, and may request that your data be permanently deleted from my email marketing platform (AWeber) and any identifying information from our servers.
How can the data subject raise a complaint?
You may use the contact details at the bottom of this policy to raise a complaint or request that your information be deleted.
