When you send me an e-mail communication, post a comment on the blog, request services, request coaching, sign up for and participate in workshops and classes, or purchase items from me – you’re also sending personally-identifiable information, such as your name, e-mail address, IP address, and possibly other information.
I will never sell your information to third parties. Ever.
If you have provided me with your contact information, then I may contact you from time to time about news or updates that I think you may be interested in, and which is related to the various projects and topics I talk about on this site.
Note that I will personally maintain your confidentiality, but keep in mind that communications over the Internet are not always secure. I do not have control over what third parties might do with electronically transmitted personal information. Please be mindful of that, not just when using my website or e-mailing me, but for any website and any e-mail you send out. Also, mistakes happen from time to time, but if they happen, I swear it’s of the innocent variety. Never intentional.
As for this website, I’m guessing like almost all other websites these days, you may receive cookies. Cookies are pieces of information that a website transfers to an individual’s hard drive for record keeping purposes. Cookies are only sent back to the website that deposited them when a visitor returns to that site. Most web browsers are initially set up to accept cookies. You can, however, reset your browser to refuse all cookies or to indicate when a cookie is being sent.
Please note that information over the internet is never absolutely secure, and dishonorable third parties who, with neither of our consent, may attempt to collect information created during transactions or communications involving you and me. No warranties are made with regard to the security of this website or any communications sent to me via e-mail.
Retention of Files
As a professional, I log and save all information and past readings in my client files. I do keep professional records of past readings. Sometimes I use those records to crunch numbers, like figuring out data to help me improve my practice. That kind of information is gathered for my own personal use, to help me be a better practitioner. It will never be given voluntarily by me to third parties for benefit or exploitation.
Payment is tendered through a third party site, such as Square, PayPal, or Amazon Gift Card. I am not responsible for your experiences with the third party sites. Please be familiar with their privacy and security terms.
By using and interacting on this website or sending me communications by e-mail, you are acknowledging and agreeing to all of the terms above. What I can promise you is whatever is within my control, I will maintain confidentiality and treat your personal information with the same care and respect that I would treat my own.
Your Use of My Website Content
Yes, it’s fine. Go for it.
Use of any of my original photographs is fine. A quick credit to me would be greatly appreciated, but if you unintentionally forget, I’m not going to make a big stink over it.
Rehashing or reprinting any of the content I’ve provided on my website is okay, so long as some sort of credit or hat tip back to yours truly is provided.
After all, I have borrowed some of my content from Benebell Wen which has been very helpful, such as with some of the language on this particular page. I have also adopted some language from other sources and made it my own. Sometimes someone else has a way of getting it just right! I believe in giving credit where credit is due.
