Privacy Policy & Disclosure

This policy is valid from 01 September 2010

Updated 5/17/2018

This blog is a personal blog written and edited by Lindsay Weirich owner of Lindsay’s Stamp Stuff, TheFrugalCrafter, Lindsayweirich.com and Lindsayweirich.teachable.com.  For questions about this blog, please contact  artstudiosofbangor@yahoo.com.

Your privacy is important to me so I want to make sure you are aware of how your data is used. The only information I see is the name and email address you enter to post a comment. I only use that information to contact you if you win a contest (and then I email you and CC the brand you won a prize from so you can provide them with your mailing information to receive your prize) OR if you left a comment that I feel would be better answered in a private email rather than a public forum. I do not save this information on my computer. If you are commenting on my blog you have likely made a WordPress account to do so and they may do more with your information so please read the WordPress (Automattic) privacy policy to learn how they may use your information.

*You do not need to have a WordPress account to enjoy this blog however if you are not a logged in WordPress user you may see advertisements that are sold and placed by WordPress for which I have no control over and receive no compensation for. These ads are clearly marked “Advertisement.” I have no control over, nor do I choose these ads. They are placed by WordPress.com because I am using their free blogging platform and someone’s gotta pay the bills. The ads you will see are determined by your location, browsing histories, and other factors. If you are a logged in WordPress user you will not see these ads. Again, please refer to the WordPress (Automattic) Privacy policy for more information about what data they collect.

Cookies are used on this site, you can find out about the WordPress/Automatic/Jetpak cookie policy here or learn how to remove and block cookies here.

WordPress shows me very basic statistics of what country readers are coming from but no specific info on any particular viewer. It also shows me what links have been clicked on but I do not see who does the clicking. Upon clicking on some links your activity may be tracked (see affiliate link disclosure below) because I earn a small commission on sales of some products I link to or because a sponsor wants to see how many people come from my website. Please refer to the privacy policy of other websites you visit before creating accounts with them.

I do not add your email to any email marketing lists. If you receive email newsletters from me you have either signed up to follow my blog via email or signed up for my occasional email newsletter. You can unsubscribe from any email marketing simply by clicking the “unsubscribe” button at the bottom of any email. I’ll miss you but totally understand. I never want to clog up a friends inbox with info they don’t want! I want you to control your information. *The only time I would ever add an email to a list would be if I switched mailing list providers and I would only be moving people’s emails that opted into to my email list in the first place.

If you have any questions or concerns about this privacy policy feel free to email me at artstudiosofbangor@yahoo.com.
