Ok, here we go. Obviously not written by a lawyer, but it's transparent in plain English:
When I say "I" I mean me, Barbara Asia and Blushing Meow. We're one and the same.
There's a few ways your personal information can get with Blushing Meow:
- subscribing to the e-newsletter (sign up on the website or at a art/craft show)
- placing an order
- or signing up to enter a contest (again, either online or at my booth at an art/craft show)
Your personal information you give is collected solely for the purpose of:
- corresponding with you regarding an order or an item
- to receive a monthly e-newsletter if you've opted in (which contains new product announcements, pre-sale announcements, and related information and downloadable freebies)
- inform you of the results of a contest you entered
- processing payment when placing an order.
Your payment information, however, is not stored here, nor will anyone here ever see it. Your payment gets processed through your choice of Paypal or Stripe, which is also considered as a third party service provider.
Placing an order with Blushing Meow does not automatically put you on the e-newsletter subscriber list. You need to sign up for it so that I have your permission to send you the e-newsletter (which, by the way, is only once a month).
You can opted out at anytime, and I will simply removed your name and email from the list.
Your personal information will NEVER be sold, traded, rented out, or given to any one else or used in any improper way at Blushing Meow.
As owner and designer of Blushing Meow, I am also the "Data Protection Officer" here and the only personnel who has access and usage of my opted-in email addresses and customer information. But I do use a third-party service provider to sent out these emails- I use MailChimp, a very reliable marketing automation platform and an email marketing service who are seriously invested in protecting their customers' email lists.
This website also uses Google Analytics- that helps to better your experience on the website and lets me know how you are using it. You can read more about Google and their use of your personal information here.
Blushing Meow is located in the United States. Although Blushing Meow is not accepting overseas orders at this time (until later 2018), anyone living in the EU or anywhere else in the world can subscribe and receive the enewsletter. Same rules apply - email address will be on the list through MailChimp, and subscriber can opted out at any time.
