Effective Date: January 1, 2022
This privacy notice discloses the privacy practices for Darlene C. Almeda, photographic artist, writer and designer (aka “site administrator”), and her website; http://www. photohaikus.com. This privacy notice applies solely to information collected by said website, except where stated otherwise. It will notify you of the following:
- What information is collected;
- With whom it is shared;
- How it can be corrected;
- How it is secured;
- How policy changes will be communicated; and
- How to address concerns over misuse of personal data.
Information Collection, Use, and Sharing
The site administrator is the sole owner of the information collected on this site. The site administrator only has access to collect information that you voluntarily give via email or other direct contact from you. The site administrator will not sell or rent this information to anyone.
The site administrator will use your information to respond to you, regarding the reason you contacted the site administrator. The site administrator will not share your information with any third party outside of their organization, other than as necessary to fulfill your request, e.g., to ship an order.
Your Access to and Control Over Information
You may opt out of any future contacts from the site administrator at any time. You can do the following at any time by contacting the site administrator via the contact page on this website:
- See what data they have about you, if any.
- Change/correct any data they have about you.
- Have them delete any data they have about you.
- Express any concern you have about their use of your data.
In order to use this website, a user must first complete the registration form. During registration a user is required to give certain information (such as name and email address). This information is used to contact you about the products/services on this site in which you have expressed interest. At your option, you may also provide demographic information (such as gender or age) about yourself, but it is not required.
The site administrator requests information from you on their print order form. To buy from this site, you must provide contact information. This information is used for billing, shipping, and owner registration in my registry database. If the site administrator has trouble processing an order, they will use this information to contact you.
The site administrator uses an outside shipping company to ship orders, and PayPal for credit card processing. These companies do not retain, share, store or use personally identifiable information for any secondary purposes beyond filling your order.
The site administrator uses precautions to protect your information. When you submit sensitive information via the website, your information is protected both online and offline.
The site administrator does not collect credit card data as this service is provided through PayPal. PayPal insures your information is encrypted and transmitted to them in a secure way. You can verify this by looking for a closed lock icon at the bottom of your web browser, or looking for “https” at the beginning of the address of the web page.
The site administrator protects your information offline as their employees who need the information to perform a specific job (e.g. order fulfillment or shipping preparation) are granted access to personally identifiable information. The computers/servers on which the site administrator stores personally identifiable information are kept in a secure environment.
The site administrator uses “cookies” on this site. A cookie is a piece of data stored on a site visitor’s hard drive to help us improve your access to our site and identify repeat visitors to our site. For instance, when we use a cookie to identify you, you would not have to log in a password more than once, thereby saving time while on this site. Cookies can also enable us to track and target the interests of our users to enhance their experience on this site. Usage of a cookie is in no way linked to any personally identifiable information on this site.
