Talenawinters.com, mysecretwishpublishing.com, or mysecretwish.ca ("Talena Winters", "My Secret Wish Publishing", "My Secret Wish", "My Secret Wish by Talena", "we", "us", or "our") respects your privacy. This page details what personal information we collect, what we do with your information, and your choices and rights.
SECTION 1 - What do we do with your information?
When you purchase something from our store, as part of the buying and selling process, we collect the personal information you give us such as your name, address and email address.
When you browse our store, we also automatically receive your computer’s internet protocol (IP) address in order to provide us with information that helps us learn about your browser and operating system.
Email marketing (if applicable): With your permission, we may send you emails about our store, new products and other updates. See section below on "Third Party Services" for more information about how this affects your personal information.
Targeted online marketing (if applicable): With your permission, targeted ads may appear featuring our products on other sites and platforms. See "Targeted Online Marketing" below.
Data storage: We retain your data in order to fulfill our business requirements such as accounting. Every reasonable effort is made to ensure the safety and security of your data. See "Security" below.
SECTION 2 - Consent
How do you get my consent?
When you provide us with personal information to complete a transaction, verify your credit card, place an order, arrange for a delivery or return a purchase, you imply that you consent to our collecting it and using it for that specific reason only.
If we ask for your personal information for a secondary reason, like marketing, we will either ask you directly for your expressed consent, or provide you with an opportunity to opt out or change your preferences.
How do I withdraw my consent?
If, after you opt in or sign up to use one of our services or receive marketing materials from us, you change your mind, you may withdraw your consent for us to contact you, for the continued collection, use or disclosure of your information at any time by contacting us at email@example.com or mailing us at: Talena Winters PO Box 6461 Peace River Alberta Canada T8S 1S3.
SECTION 3 - Disclosure
We may disclose your personal information if we are required by law to do so or if you violate our Terms of Service.
SECTION 4 - Third-Party Services
In general, the third-party providers used by us will only collect, use and disclose your information to the extent necessary to allow them to perform the services they provide to us.
However, certain third-party service providers, such as payment gateways and other payment transaction processors, have their own privacy policies in respect to the information we are required to provide to them for your purchase-related transactions.
For these providers, we recommend that you read their privacy policies so you can understand the manner in which your personal information will be handled by these providers. (See Payment.)
In particular, remember that certain providers may be located in or have facilities that are located in a different jurisdiction than either you or us. So if you elect to proceed with a transaction that involves the services of a third-party service provider, then your information may become subject to the laws of the jurisdiction(s) in which that service provider or its facilities are located.
As an example, if you are located in Canada and your transaction is processed by a payment gateway located in the United States, then your personal information used in completing that transaction may be subject to disclosure under United States legislation, including the Patriot Act.
Our store is hosted on Squarespace.com. They provide us with the online e-commerce platform that allows us to sell our products and services to you.
Your data is stored through Squarespace’s data storage, databases and the general Squarespace application. They store your data on a secure server behind a firewall.
All direct payment gateways adhere to the standards set by PCI-DSS as managed by the PCI Security Standards Council, which is a joint effort of brands like Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover.
PCI-DSS requirements help ensure the secure handling of credit card information by our store and its service providers.
When you click on links on the Website, they may direct you away from our site. We are not responsible for the privacy practices of other sites and encourage you to read their privacy statements.
SECTION 5 - Cookies
- Ads. We partner with third party publishers, advertising networks and service providers to manage our ads on other sites. Our third party partners may set cookies on your device or browser to gather information about your activities on the Services and other sites you visit, in order to provide you with targeted ads for Talena Winters or My Secret Wish by Talena. For example, if you visit Talena Winters and also use a social media platform, you may see a Talena Winters ad in your social media newsfeed or timeline.
- Opting Out. You can set your browser to not accept cookies, but this may limit your ability to use the Services. We currently don’t respond to DNT:1 signals from browsers visiting our Services. You can also opt out of receiving interest-based ads from certain ad networks here (or if located in the European Union, here). When signing up for any of our email marketing, you also have the option of opting out of targeted advertising based on your email address. These preferences can be adjusted at any time.
