How we use your information

This site collects information on you in two ways.

  1. The information that you manually provide us by leaving a comment, filling out our contact form, signing up for our newsletter or making a purchase. This information can be tied directly to you because of the information you’ve provided.
  2. The information that’s automatically collected via third-party partners included on this site in order to allow us to give and deliver content the most relevant content to you. The types of information collected here include things like your IP address, location, pages visited, and browser type. Generally, our third-party partners only give us this information in the aggregate (e.g. it’s not identifiable to you) but sometimes this information can be directly tied to you (e.g. if you signed up for our newsletter).

Most of this information is only used in the aggregate to create a profile of our readers and the types of content that you, as our readers, most identify with. The information collected is only shared with others if required by our terms of service/agreement with those parties, or if we are legally required to by law.

If you would like to know what information we have that’s directly attributable to you, please contact us and we will provide a response within 24-hours.

We use a recognised shopping cart service: WooCommerce, to process your information securely. Payments can be made by credit card or by PayPal, and are processed by Braintree, a PayPal service. Braintree is a validated Level 1 PCI DSS compliant service provider. This means that they must meet high levels of security when they store, process and transmit cardholder data.
