Privacy Policy

This website is owned and operated by Jo Marchant.

I respect your privacy.

  • I will not ask you for personal information unless it is required to deliver you specific information, services or products.
  • I will not share your personal information with anyone except to comply with the law, improve products or services, or protect my rights.
  • I don’t store personal information unless necessary for the operation of your account or you have chosen to do so.

Below is my privacy policy which provides further details:

Website Visitors

Like most websites, this site collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. The purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how visitors use the website. From time to time, I may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of this website.

The site also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses. Such information is not used to identify visitors, however, not disclosed, other than under the same circumstances as personally-identifying information, as described below.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

Certain visitors to choose to interact with the site in ways that require the gathering of personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information gathered depends on the nature of the interaction. Those who engage in transactions with the site – by purchasing products, for example – are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, such information is only collected insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction. Personally-identifying information is not disclosed other than as described below. Visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.

Aggregated Statistics

The site collects statistics about the behavior of visitors. I may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, personally-identifying information will not be disclosed other than as described below.

Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information

I disclose potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organisations that

  • need to know that information in order to process it on my behalf or to provide services available at at this websites, and
  • that have agreed not to disclose it to others.

Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organisations may be located outside of your home country; by using the website, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. I will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to employees, contractors and affiliated organisations, as described above, I disclose potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only when required to do so by law, or when I believe in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of myself, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of the website and have supplied your email address, I may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new prodcuts, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what’s going on. I take all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
