IN REAL PEOPLE TERMS :
There’s a bunch of legal jargon that needs to go on this page, but here are the basics:
- I use Google Analytics data to improve the process of my website. This tracks how and where you navigate on my site.
- If you sign up for an email list I will send you the incentive you signed up for and regular emails periodically. You may opt-out of this at any time. I do not share or sell our email list.
- This website runs SSL on all pages related to placing an order, so your payment information is securely transmitted and handled via Paypal, Simplify Commerce via Woocommerce, or Gumroad. We do not have access to or store your personal payment information.
- This site links to other sites from time to time; we are not responsible for differing privacy and data security policies.
- If you create an account on satustitches.com, we collect your: name, mailing and shipping address, email, and purchase history. We will never disclose, sell, or share any of your personal information to or with third parties. The CCPA requires us to offer an opt out link for this even if we do not do it. [wt_cli_ccpa_optout]
- If you leave a comment on my blog, it does attach your IP address to your email address. This helps monitor spam.
