I value and respect your privacy! ๐Ÿ™‚

Hello! Amy here ๐Ÿ˜€ I strongly believe in the importance of transparency. I believe it is one of the pillars for creating a trustworthy and happy relationship. It is my number one priority to make sure you (whether you are my student, a visitor who happens to stumble upon this site, and/or even a potential friend) are comfortable and know how I handle your personal information online. In this document, you will find the privacy practices that I apply to linsteahouse.com.

Types of Data We Collect:

Cookies โ€“ *Drools*

Cookies, no, not the yummy edible ones, unfortunately. I am talking about the small text files that are stored on your computer. As of the type of information that the cookies store, it depends on who/what put the cookies there.

For example, I am using a third-party service, Google Analytics, to track the number of hits and visitors to my site. Google Analytics collects data like visitor behavior patterns, how long a session is, what page does the user in that session click on and things like that. This information does not identify anyone. I am using Google Analytics to help me improve the quality of the website ๐Ÿ˜€ (thoughโ€ฆ it is quite complicated! I don't understand the numbersโ€ฆ ha). Please click here to read Google Analytics' privacy policy.

Mailing Lists โ€“ Overview

I use a third-party provider, MailerLite, to deliver our newsletter. MailerLite collects statistics such as email opening rate, clicks and other technologies to help us monitor and improve our newsletter. For more information, please see MailerLite's privacy notice. https://www.mailerlite.com/privacy-policy

You can unsubscribe from the mailing list at any time by clicking on the unsubscribe link at the bottom of any of our emails or email me at Amy@linsteahouse.com

I use a scheduler system called Bookly for taking reservations. Bookly collects information such name, booking time, duration, and such (you will see what Bookly asks for when you book an appointment). Bookly has features such as sending order confirmation, notifications, and/or other emails related to our classes/reservations.  

How long do we keep your data?

How long we keep your data depends on why it was gathered initially.

Third Parties โ€“ Not a superwoman (yet).

I use third-party providers to create easy to access learning resources. Here are the third party sites I use:

Teachable โ€“ I host my courses on Teachable. Please click here for Teachable's privacy policy. https://teachable.com/privacy-policy

Podbean โ€“ I host my podcast episodes on Podbean. Please click here for Podbean's privacy policy. https://www.podbean.com/site/default/privacy

CHANGELOG

January 1st, 2019

The privacy policy has been updated for easier readability and to be compliant with the GDPR. Instead of applying to just residents in the EU, I have decided to apply it across the board ๐Ÿ˜€
