This Privacy Policy describes the ways we collect, use and share information. Our Privacy Policy applies whenever you visit the site, www.staceypoterson.com (“Website”) or use services (collectively, “Product”).
We take your privacy very seriously and except where required for our services, Website or Product to function, such as with billing (see Third Party Technologies below) or where you might opt-in to share your information on our Website, we never share your information. We treat your data in a manner we would want our data to be treated. However, if you do not agree with the below policies and practices, your choice is not to use our Website or register to use the Product through our Website.
Personal Information We Collect and How We Collect It
You provide to us your personal information when you voluntarily fill in forms on our Website or Product. When a Visitor registers to become a Customer of the Product, we may collect contact information such as name, email, and unique identifiers including username, account number and password.‍
Personal Information Used for Communications
We use this information to create and update your account, verifying your identity, provide products, process transactions, and enable communications with you about your account or to assist you when you contact us.
Personal Information Used for Billing
For your security we use a third-party service provider to manage credit card processing. This service provider is not permitted to store, retain, or use billing information except for the sole purpose of credit card processing on our behalf and we do not have access to, nor do we store, your full credit card information.
We use this information to process or facilitate payments for our products, services and for the purposes of verifying identity and helping Customers with billing support questions.

We collect certain information automatically from Visitors to the Site and users of the Product, such as Internet addresses, browser types, referring domains, timestamps (time page accessed as well as time spent per web page), as well as the specific pages the visitor has requested, user activity in the Product, and device information.
This information is logged to help deliver a better user experience (for example, by displaying personalized content to you based on your interactions with the Website or Product), to diagnose technical problems, to support marketing activities and so that we may better administer the Site and the Product in order to constantly improve the quality of the Website and Product.
We may also allow others to provide audience measurement and analytics services for us, to serve advertisements on our behalf across the Internet, and to track and report on the performance of those advertisements. These entities may use cookies, web beacons, SDKs, and other technologies to identify your device when you visit our site and use our services, as well as when you visit other online sites and services.

International Data Transfers
Visitors' and users' information may be transferred to, and processed in, countries other than the country in which they reside. Specifically, the Website and Services are hosted on servers located in the United States of America, and our group companies and third-party service providers and partners may operate around the world.

We use appropriate administrative, technical, organizational, and physical security measures to protect our users' and visitors' information and data against accidental or unlawful destruction, loss, and alteration, and against unauthorized disclosure and access.

Unfortunately, no data transmission or storage can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. While we strive to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee security of the information you transmit to us or host with us using our Website or Product.
Data Retention 
We retain personal information we collect from you where we have an ongoing legitimate business need to do so (for example, to provide you with the Service you have requested or to comply with applicable legal, tax or accounting requirements). When we have no ongoing legitimate business need to process your personal information, we will either delete or anonymize it.
