In A Nutshell:

I don't do any type of ads, accept guest posts (at the moment), paid product reviews or sponsored posts (probably ever), or drop affiliate links to things I haven't bought or used myself. My photos are either mine, copyright free (from places like Unsplash), or purchased (from places like the awesome Stocksy). If, on a very rare occasion I use a photo from elsewhere that's not in one of those categories, I have permission from the owner of the image to use it (and will link it below the image).

If you'd like to use any of my words, articles or images, please check with me first (I usually say a hearty 'yes' as long as attribution is given)!

Any information you give to me via sign ups for courses or emails is kept private and never shared. Do unto others as you wish to be treated is my motto.

It goes without saying, but here it is anyway... I'm not a doctor, medical expert, or health professional (physical, mental or otherwise). Anything I share here related to health or personal areas is from my experience and perspective only, and should never be used as expert medical or psychological advice. 

That's the short version, but the longer versions of each policy are below, in case you're up for some 'dry' reading!

Privacy:

Please read this privacy policy carefully to get a clear understanding of how I collect, use, protect or otherwise handle your Personally Identifiable Information in accordance with this website.

What personal information do I collect from the people that visit my blog, website or app?

When using this site, as appropriate, you may be asked to enter your name, email address, or other details to help you with your experience or activities.

When do I collect information?

I collect information from you when you register on this site, subscribe to a newsletter, respond to a survey, fill out a form or enter information on this site.

I do not currently collect addresses, phone numbers or credit card details for sales, as I don't sell anything...yet! (But I hope to in the future)

How do I use your information?

I may use the information collected from you when you sign up for my newsletter (Feathers & Seedlings), respond to a survey, surf the website, or use certain other site features in the following ways:

  • To personalize your user experience and to allow delivery of the type of content and product offerings in which you are most interested.
  • To improve this website in order to better serve you.
  • To allow better service in responding to your customer service requests.
  • To administer a contest, promotion, survey or other site feature.
  • To send periodic emails if you subscribe to them (eg. the free 'Feathers & Seedlings' newsletter).
  • To enable me to send you emails related to any courses you may have subscribed to.

How do I protect visitor information?

This website is scanned on a regular basis for security holes and known vulnerabilities in order to make your visit as safe as possible. I use the Squarespace web development platform, and it is securely hosted.

Your personal information is contained behind secured networks and is only accessible by a limited number of persons who have special access rights to such systems, and are required to keep the information confidential. In addition, all sensitive information you supply is encrypted via Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology.

Do I use 'cookies'?

A cookie is a small file placed on the hard drive of your computer. Most websites use cookies. This site will use cookies to track your use of the Website and any services/products I may offer and sell, provide you with a more personalized user experience, and to facilitate your logging in to the Website. You have the ability to accept or decline cookies using your web browser settings. If you choose to disable cookies, some areas of the Website may not work properly or at all.

You can choose to have your computer warn you each time a cookie is being sent, or you can choose to turn off all cookies. You do this through your browser (like Internet Explorer) settings. Each browser is a little different, so look at your browser's Help menu to learn the correct way to modify your cookies.

If you disable cookies off, some features may be disabled that make your site experience more efficient and some of our services may not function properly.

Children's Privacy

To access or use this Website, you must be 18 years old or older and have the requisite power and authority to enter into this Privacy Policy. Children under the age of 18 are prohibited from using the Site. Accordingly, I will not knowingly collect or use any personal information from children I know to be under the age of 18. In addition, I will delete any information in my database that I know originates from a child under the age of 18.

Third Party Disclosure

I do not sell, trade, or otherwise transfer to outside parties your personally identifiable information.

This does not include website hosting partners and other parties who assist us in operating this website, conducting our business, or servicing you, so long as those parties agree to keep this information confidential.

I may also release your information when I believe release is appropriate to comply with the law, enforce site policies, or protect ours or others' rights, property, or safety. 

Identifiable or non-personally identifiable visitor information is not provided to other parties for marketing or advertising.

There are no ads run on this site, nor will there ever be.

Third party links

Occasionally, with discretion, we may include or offer third party products or services on our website. These third party sites have separate and independent privacy policies. I therefore have no responsibility or liability for the content and activities of these linked sites. Nonetheless, I seek to protect the integrity of this site and welcome any feedback about these sites.

There are also links to 3rd party websites scattered among blog posts. These are included as links of interest, and I am not responsible or liable for the content or activities of these linked sites.

There are links to the profiles of Circle of Daydreams on the social media networks of Pinterest and Twitter. If you choose to log in to your account on these networks once you have clicked through to them, I have no responsibility or liability for the content and activities you may undertake on these linked sites.

Google

I have not enabled Google AdSense on this site, and will not be doing so in the future.

Google Analytics are not used on this site.

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 in site notification within 7 business days.

I 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 a government agency to investigate and/or prosecute non-compliance by data processors.

I collect your email address in order to:

  • Send information, respond to inquiries, and/or other requests or questions.
  • Send emails in relation to free courses you may have signed up for.
  • Send the monthly(ish) email containing free printables and other downloadables. This email may also contain some links to blog entries on this site, other sites that may be of interest to subscribers, and a link to a password protected area of this site (which requires a password provided by me). There may also occasionally be links to paid products/services made or created by Linda Ogier in the future... but not yet!

If at any time you would like to unsubscribe from receiving future emails, you can follow the instructions at the bottom of each email, and you will be promptly removed from all  correspondence.

If there are any questions regarding this privacy policy you may contact me using the information below.
