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.
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.
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.
