Calligraphy-Skills’ Privacy Policy

Your privacy on- and off-line is important, along with your right to know what information a website receives and collects when you visit or use its links. This document outlines the types of personal information that could be received and collected when you use Calligraphy-Skills.com, as well as some of the steps I take to safeguard information, so you can make an informed decision about sharing personal information with me or on the site.

Calligraphy-Skills.com upholds decency, fairness, openness and integrity in its operations. A major part of that is making sure I protect customers', consumers' and online visitors' privacy so far as possible on my website.

Personal Information Calligraphy-Skills.com collects personally identifiable information from the visitors to our website only on a voluntary basis. Personal information collected on a voluntary basis may include name, postal address, email address, company name and telephone number (for example: the contact form asks you to supply a name.)

This information is collected if you request information from the site, participate in a contest or sweepstakes, ask to be contacted by Calligraphy Skills or request some other service or information from us. The information collected is internally reviewed, used to improve the content of our website, notify our visitors of updates, and respond to visitor inquiries.

Once information has been reviewed, it is discarded or stored in our files for internal reference only and not made available to others. If I make material changes in the collection of personally identifiable information I will inform you by placing a notice on the site. Personal information received from any visitor will be used only for internal purposes and will not be sold or provided to third parties.

Use of Cookies and Web Beacons We may use cookies to help you personalize your online experience. Cookies are identifiers that are transferred to your computer's hard drive through your Web browser to enable our systems to recognize your browser. The purpose of a cookie is to tell the Web server that you have returned to a specific page. For example, if you personalize the sites pages, or register with any of our site's services, a cookie enables Calligraphy-Skills.com to recall your specific information on subsequent visits.

You have the ability to accept or decline cookies by modifying your Web browser; however, if you choose to decline cookies, you may not be able to fully experience the interactive features of the site.

Many cookies from sales sites linked from Calligraphy Skills (such as Amazon) automatically disappear from your computer after a short time (days or weeks).

A web beacon is a transparent image file used to monitor your journey around a single website or collection of sites. They are also referred to as web bugs and are commonly used by sites that hire third-party services to monitor traffic. They may be used in association with cookies to understand how visitors interact with the pages and content on the pages of a web site.

Calligraphy Skills may serve third-party advertisements that use cookies and web beacons in the course of ads being served on our web site to ascertain how many times you've seen an advertisement. No personally identifiable information you give us is provided to or through third-party services for cookie or web beacon use, so they cannot personally identify you with that information on our web site. Some third-party advertisements may be provided by Google, which uses cookies to serve ads on this site. Google uses the DART cookie, which enables it to serve ads to our users based on their visits to this site and other sites on the Web. You may opt out of the use of the DART cookie by visiting the Google ad and content network privacy policy.

Browsers can be set to accept or reject cookies or notify you when a cookie is being sent. Privacy software can be used to override web beacons. Taking either of these actions shouldn't cause a problem with this site, should you so choose.

Children's Online Privacy Protection Act This website is directed to adults; it is not directed to children under the age of 13. We operate our site in compliance with the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act, and will not knowingly collect or use personal information from anyone under 13 years of age.

Non-Personal Information In some cases, we may collect information about you that is not personally identifiable. We use this information, which does not identify individual users, to analyze trends, to administer the site, to track users' movements around the site and to gather demographic information about our user base as a whole. The information collected is used solely for internal review and not shared with other organizations for commercial purposes.

Release of Information If Calligraphy-Skills.com is sold (not the plan at the moment), then information obtained from you through your voluntary participation in this site may transfer to the new owner as a part of the sale in order that the service being provided to you may continue. In that event, you will receive notice through the Calligraphy Skills website of that change in control and practices, and I will make reasonable efforts to ensure that the purchaser honors any opt-out requests you might make.

How You Can Correct or Remove Information I provide this privacy policy as a statement to you of my commitment to protect your personal information and keep you informed. If you have submitted personal information through our website and would like that information deleted from the records or would like to update or correct that information, please use the contact page.

Updates and Effective Date Calligraphy-Skills.com reserves the right to make changes in this policy. If there is a material change in the privacy practices for this site, I will indicate on the site that the privacy practices have changed, and provide a link to the new privacy policy. I do encourage you to periodically review this policy so that you will know what information is collected through the site, how it's collected, what your options are and how we use information which you supply.
