Privacy and protecting the privacy of my clients is very important to me. My goal is to build a long lasting relationship with you that is based on mutual trust.
Naturally there are times where it’s necessary to collect personal information such as your address, phone number, and email. I’ll do everything I can to keep this information private and never sell your information for any reason. It bothers me when my own information is sold from one company to the next and I’ll never do the same to anyone who trusts me with their’s.
I have purchased and maintain a secure sockets layer (SSL) certificate through Comodo to ensure that all credit card informtaion is encrypted when sent. The same encryption is used when logging in to access your billing and support details.
I have a few programs installed to help me run my business that will set cookies on your machine. These cookies are to maintain your secure connection when you log in as a client. They are temporary in nature and will expire when you close your browser.
I also use analytics software that sets cookies to track visits that give me information to improve the site. No personal information is collected through the use of these cookies.
The paragraphs that follow is the stuff to make the lawyers happy. It basically means I won’t give out your information unless the police the government or someone else who really scares me insists I give it to them. And even then I’ll fight it as best as I can.
