I value and honor the trust you place in my website and in me. I follow the highest standards and guidelines when using and safeguarding your information.
Collection and Use of Information
I do not rent, sell or exchange personal information about you. Access to personal information about you is restricted to myself and, in the case of payments, with those businesses that accept my payment vehicles. I gather only the information from you that I need to administer my educational services, clientele practice and business, provide superior service and communicate offers on merchandise and services that I believe will be of interest to you. I limit access to your information to myself when it concerns your sessions. Otherwise, only to parties who need any other information to carry out business functions only.
Security of Information
I take all reasonable effort to ensure that the information my merchant services maintain is secure. I am a verified merchant with Authorize.net and PayPal, fully recognized payment brands and among the top of the industry. When credit card information is transmitted on-line, I use their forms which utilize top industry standard protocol SSL (secure socket layer) encryption. I or my payment vehicles evaluate and adopt, when needed, new technological developments that are designed to increase the level of security for your information.
Your Choice is Honored
I am committed to providing you with information on my new books, articles, classes, events, products, services, or benefits. I sometimes share this information with you through email, and only if you request it by filling out subscription forms. I use it to contact you regarding offers that may be of interest to you or to communicate with you about services you have requested.
However, if at any time you wish to be removed from my email lists, my email service provides you (through links on the email messages) with effective tools to automatically unsubscribe to any or all lists. I ask that you take the time to use these tools rather than using the spam or junk option of your email account. This allows you to receive information should you ever re-subscribe, and helps me protect my compliance status with industry policies and practices.
I collect the minimum of personally-identifiable information from you (such as name, address, telephone number, or email address) only when you voluntarily provide it. If you do not wish to have your personally-identifiable information collected online, I expect that you will simply not submit it.
When you provide me with personally-identifiable information online, that information is kept within my business only as long as I need it for customer service purposes only. I never use it for marketing services or any other reason.
With regard to the comments you share on any of my articles, I may store the personally-identifiable information for customer service purposes only. For example, to better understand your needs and interests, and to improve my classes, events, products, and services.
