Data collection is part of running a smart business that meets your needs.  We want you to know how we use and collect data. Thanks for being here!

In General. We may collect personal information that can identify you, such as your name and email address, and in some cases other information that does not identify you, for instance, the source that brought you to this website, see “Cookies” below.

We collect this information so we can create more resources you love and to improve your experience on our website. This information is only shared with our trusted third-party partners when necessary to serve you. We will keep your data for no longer than is necessary.

We have direct access to information that we collect voluntarily from you to via email or other direct contact from you. We will not directly sell or rent this information to anyone.

We will use your information to respond to you, regarding the reason you contacted us. We will not share your information with any third-party outside our organization, other than as necessary via our trusted third-party partners to fulfill your request, e.g., to ship an order or host a class.

We partner with PayPal, Stripe and Shopify Paments, to securely process your payment. Therefore, we never learn your credit card information, only your name, email, and shipping address.

Additionally we use other third-party platforms to provide our services including, but not limited to, WordPress, Mailchimp, Patreon, Thinkific, Crowdcast, Facebook, WooCommerce, Shopify, and Google Analytics.
