Bittersweet Blessing and Myste Lyn are committed to respecting your online privacy and recognize your need for appropriate protection and management of any personally identifiable information (“Personal Information”) you share with us.
Personal Information means any information that may be used to identify an individual, including, but not limited to, a first and last name, a home or other physical address and an email address or other contact information, whether at work or at home. In general, you can visit the COMPANY Web pages without telling us who you are or revealing any Personal Information about yourself.
Information We May Collect
We may collect and store personal or other information that you voluntarily supply to us online while using the Site (e.g., while on the Site or in responding via email to a feature provided on the Site). BittersweetBlessing.com only contacts individuals who specifically request that we do so or in the event that they have signed up to receive our free newsletters or have purchased one of our products. We collect personally identifying information from our users during online registration and online purchasing. Generally, this information includes name and e-mail address for registration to receive our free newsletters and name, postal address, and credit card information when purchasing our products. All of this information is provided to us by you.
Some of our Web pages utilize “cookies” and other tracking technologies. A “cookie” is a small text file that may be used, for example, to collect information about Web site activity. Some cookies and other technologies may serve to recall Personal Information previously indicated by a Web user. Most browsers allow you to control cookies, including whether or not to accept them and how to remove them.
You may set most browsers to notify you if you receive a cookie, or you may choose to block cookies with your browser, but please note that if you choose to erase or block your cookies, you will need to re- enter your original user ID and password to gain access to certain parts of the Web site as well as break the tracking to affiliate commissions.
Please keep in mind that whenever you voluntarily make your personal information available for viewing by third parties online – for example on message boards, web logs, through email, or in chat areas – that information can be seen, collected and used by others besides us. We cannot be responsible for any unauthorized third-party use of such information.
Where the COMPANY collects Personal Information on the web, we intend to post a purpose statement that explains why Personal Information will be collected and whether we plan to share such Personal Information outside of the COMPANY or those working on the COMPANY behalf. The COMPANY does not intend to transfer Personal Information without your consent to third parties who are not bound to act on the COMPANY behalf unless such transfer is legally required.
You may choose whether or not to provide Personal Information to the COMPANY. The notice we intend to provide where the COMPANY collects Personal Information on the Web should help you to make this choice. If you choose not to provide the Personal Information we request, you can still visit most of the COMPANY Web sites, but you may be unable to access certain options, offers, and services that involve our interaction with you.
If you chose to have a relationship with the COMPANY, such as a contractual or other business relationship or partnership, we will naturally continue to contact you in connection with that business relationship.
To the extent that you do provide us with Personal Information, the COMPANY wishes to maintain accurate Personal Information. Where we collect Personal Information from you on the Web, our goal is to provide a means of contacting the COMPANY should you need to update or correct that Information. If for any reason those means are unavailable or inaccessible, you may send updates and corrections about your Personal Information to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will make reasonable efforts to incorporate the changes in your Personal Information that we hold as soon as practicable.
BittersweetBlessing.com is not structured to attract children. Accordingly, we do not intend to collect Personal Information from anyone we know to be under 13 years of age although we currently do not take steps to verify the user to that extent.
Third Party Services
Third parties may provide certain services available on BittersweetBlessing.com on the COMPANY behalf. The COMPANY may provide information, including Personal Information, which the COMPANY collects on the Web to third- party service providers to help us deliver programs, products, information, and services. Service providers are also an important means by which the COMPANY maintains its Web site and mailing lists. The COMPANY will take reasonable steps to ensure that these third-party service providers are obligated to protect Personal Information on behalf of the COMPANY.
The COMPANY does not intend to transfer Personal Information without your consent to third parties who are not bound to act on the COMPANY behalf unless such transfer is legally required. Similarly, it is against the COMPANY policy to sell Personal Information collected online without consent.
We are committed to privacy and are actively involved in and support current industry initiatives to preserve individual privacy rights on the Internet. Protecting your privacy online is an evolving area, and the COMPANY Web sites are constantly evolving to meet these demands.
While we cannot guarantee privacy perfection, we will address any issue to the best of our abilities as soon as possible.
