Privacy Policy

Updated May 24, 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 send me an email on my contact form or make comments on my blog once that feature is activated on my posts). 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.  I will provide information about opting in or out of my newsletter once I add that feature. https://blog.mailchimp.com/a-look-at-mailchimps-privacy-policy/

Data Collection and statistics:

Please note: I am not currently using any plug- ins for data analysis for my website. Once I activate this feature I will update information here.

In the meantime, please click the link above or here from Facebook  for detailed information on how they use data, as I will be using their platform to promote my website, primarily through Instagram which they own. I will update this policy at that time.

Third-party links:

My website contains direct external links to my Facebook page, Instagram Page and Pinterest . I may also include links to other third party websites in the future. For more information on those website’s privacy policies, please visit them for that information.

Children:

janinekurzinger.com does not knowingly collect personally-identifiable information of children under the age of 16. Children should not be visiting this website as it is meant to promote my art to adults. 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@janinekurzinger.com and all that information will be permanently deleted/removed. My website is intended for parents or guardians 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 and will be posted on youtube.
