Privacy Policy

Of course, it’s super important to me and my business Create Space Feng Shui that you feel happy and safe when visiting my site, sign up for my newsletter or any other free resource, or do business with me. This privacy policy is all about explaining what kind of personal information I collect from you and why I do it. I’ve tried to keep it simple and clear – but if you have any questions about it, you’re more than welcome to reach out. You find my contact information at the bottom of this page.

The super short version is that I only collect the data needed to fulfill my obligations to you, to any accounting rules or laws, or to make my communication better or a bit more personal (like, it’s nice to know your name, for example). I won’t sell or share your private information, and if I for some reason that I can’t think of now would want to do that in the future, I need to ask for your permission first. Also, you can reach out at any time to ask what kind of information I have about you, and you can have it changed or deleted as long as I don’t need to keep it for legal reasons.

If you want a bit more detailed explanation, please, grab your favorite beverage, get up in a comfy chair and read on. (And why not seize that moment to do a little mini-meditation and take three deep breaths before begin reading?!)

Okay, here we go – enjoy!

Types of data collected

General
I will only collect personal information that I need when you purchase a product or service, subscribe to my newsletter, or request a free resource. This in order to be able to deliver what you have asked for or purchased, as well as sometimes personalize your experience with me, and also to fulfill my obligations to accounting rules and laws. The information will be saved as long as it’s necessary for these purposes, or if you give your consent to otherwise.

Visiting this website
When you visit this website, www.createspacefengshui.com, there’re two things you should know about; cookies (the data version, that is…) and Google Analytics.

Cookies
My website uses cookies to collect information.  This includes information about browsing and purchasing behavior by people who access my website – like; information about pages viewed, products purchased and the customer journey around my website.

Google Analytics
I also use a third-party service, Google Analytics, to collect standard internet log information and details of visitor behavior patterns. I do this to find out things such as the number of visitors to the various parts of the site. This information is only processed in a way which does not identify anyone. I do not make and do not allow Google to make, any attempt to find out the identities of those visiting our website.

Besides that, you may also want to know (?) that I use these providers:

  • WordPress – website editor – this is where I spend HOURS to create my website
  • One.com – web hosting – this is where my website lives, like a little hotel for the site

Signing up for newsletter & free resources
When you sign up for my newsletter or for a free resource, you’ll be asked to submit your name and email, which is information that I’ll keep.

I use this information when, well, sending the free resource you have requested, and the newsletters to you. You can, of course, unsubscribe to the newsletter at any time and without any explanation. There’s an unsubscribe link at the bottom of in each email – just click it and you won’t hear from me again. The newsletter includes news and updates about me and my business, my products, and services, as well as offers and promotions for what I do. I might also use this information if I need to contact to obtain or provide additional information or to check my records are right. I don’t rent or trade email lists with other organizations and businesses.

I use a third-party provider, AWeber, for my signups and my newsletter deliveries. They gather statistics around email opening and clicks using industry standard technologies to help me monitor and improve my newsletter. For more information, please see AWeber’s Privacy Policy: https://www.aweber.com/privacy.htm

Becoming a client
When you become a client (yay – thanks!) you’ll also be subscribed to receive my newsletter to ensure you don’t miss out on any news, offers or updates. You can read more about the newsletter above, and as I mentioned there; you can unsubscribe at any time through the link at the bottom of each email – no questions asked.

As a client, I do however need to keep your name, address and email for my client directory due to accounting rules and, also to be able to communicate with you.

When we work together I use the following third-party service providers:

  • PayPal – payment processes
  • AWeber – email marketing service
  • Acuity – session bookings, intake forms and photos you provide
  • Zoom – web calls/video web meetings

In this process, the following data will be collected: name, email, mailing address, phone number. I’ll need this information to be able to communicate with and fulfill my obligations to you, as well as due to accounting rules and laws.

Also, any other personal information that you might share with me or submit, due to our work together, like intake forms and any pictures that you provide, are kept confidential.

Third-party service providers & other websites
The third party services that I use are listed above in each section where I use it, but for easy reference, I list them below too.

To make it super clear: when you sign up for my free resources, newsletter, products or services, I will share your personal information only as necessary for the third party to provide that service. The information will be stored with them. You can check each site for their privacy policy if you want to know more about them.

Also, note that this privacy policy does not cover the links within this site linking to any other websites. Those sites are not governed by this privacy policy, and if you have questions about how a site uses your information, you’ll need to check that site’s privacy statement.

(phew – this is getting long! Need a pause? Take a few new deep breaths?
Okay, just a few more things, then we’re done. Promise!)

Security

I will keep your personal information safe and secure, not share it or sell it, as well as protect it from unauthorized access or use.

I use some third party service providers, as mentioned above. Please, read that section for more information on how I deal with them in regards to your personal information.

Your rights

You have always right to know what information I have in my records about you. And you have also always right to change it or have it deleted, as long as I don’t need to keep it due to any legal rules or laws. Just reach out and let me know what you want to know.

If you ever have any questions about this, don’t hesitate to contact me. Just send me an email at maria@createspacefengshui.com.
