Privacy Policy

Updated April 4, 2018

Please note that this privacy policy will be updated over time as I make additions and changes to my website janinekurzinger.com. Updates will be made once I add a newsletter opt in form and an online shop where you can buy my art. Please check back for further information once these features have been added.

Personal Information:

At present, the only personal information you will be providing me is your name, email address and link to your website (if you chose to provide that). This is in order to allow you to send me email messages on my contact form, or to comment on my blog. In future I will be using an email processing service called MailChimp for my newsletter and option forms for that. In no way will your personal information be shared with unrelated third parties. Only your name and your provided links to your website will be posted on blog comments sections on my website. Your email address will be used to send you updates to my website via my future opt-in form and to communicate with you. Once this feature is enabled and you decide you want to opt-out after opting in , you can do so at any time. Please check back here for privacy information related to my online shop once this is added in the near future. Mailchimp service does not share email lists with third parties other than those websites that subscribe to their services for their newsletters. Please visit mailchimp.com for more information if you wish. Here is the link with their privacy policy details explained. https://blog.mailchimp.com/a-look-at-mailchimps-privacy-policy/

Children:

janinekurzinger.com does not knowingly collect personally-identifiable information of children under the age of 16. No personally identifiable information should be submitted to this site by visitors under the age of 18 without prior written consent of a parent or guardian. If you have any concerns as a parent that your child may have done so without your consent (example: email address, full name), please contact me at jmkartist[at]janinekurzinger[dot]com and all that information will be permanently deleted/removed. My website is intended for parents to follow my creative process with my art and to purchase my original art work and reproductions to decorate their child’s room. Any future tutorials I may provide that may be geared towards children can be viewed by parents together with their children. I may also review creative apps for children. Children must have parental permission for any apps purchased and should only be done so by parent or guardian. I do not take any responsibility for apps you may decide to download for your children from third party providers. Please review the privacy policy terms of any apps that I review in the future if you decide to download and use them from apps stores.
