Privacy Matters

Your Privacy

I understand the desire to have one’s personal information protected.  Here’s what you can expect:

  • I will keep private your email address and other personal information you make available to me through your profile and/or direct communication, or publicly through social media networks.
  • I will not sell, trade or distribute to anyone your email address and other personal information you may provide, without your permission.
  • I keep minimal personal information that you choose to make available to me in your profile.
  • I will provide to you any personal information I keep about you, upon request.  I will investigate to the best of my abilities any concerns you may have regarding the handling of your personal information.
  • When you send me an email specifically or ask me to communicate with you via email, I will know your exact email address and any other personal information you include.  I will use your email address to respond to your request.  Any of the email communications between us may be stored should future correspondence be required.  This also applies when you contact me via other forms of social media (eg. Facebook, Twitter)
  • Changes to this Privacy Policy will be maintained here for your viewing.
