PRIVACY POLICY

Thank you for visiting StaceySciacchitago.com (hereinafter “Website,” “Site,”), owned by Stacey Sciacchitago (hereinafter, “Company,” “we,” “us,” “our”), a San Diego–based company.

Please see the Company’s contact information at the bottom of this privacy statement should you have any questions.

We respect and value the privacy of everyone who visits our Site and will only collect and use information in a manner consistent with your rights and our obligations under the law.

This Privacy Policy applies only to your use of this Website. It does not extend to any websites that are linked to from our Site (whether we provide those links or whether they are shared by other users). We have no control over how your data is collected, stored or used by other websites and we advise you to check the privacy policies of any such websites before providing any data to them.

Please read this statement carefully as it is intended to help you understand the types of information we collect, why we collect it, and the ways you can manage any personal information we may collect about you. We have made every reasonable effort to explain the terms of this Privacy Policy in easy-to-understand language. If you have any questions, please use the contact information provided below.

It is important to us that you make a reasonably informed decision as to whether to continue reading the information provided on this website and whether you ultimately  choose to share any of your personal information with us.

PERSONAL INFORMATION

For purposes of this Privacy Policy, “personal information” means any information that could identify you as an individual through information that is unique to you. This type of information is often referred to a “unique identifier,” which is a numeric or alphanumeric string of characters that can be used to uniquely identify an individual. Obvious unique identifiers are name, address, and phone number. Other unique identifiers include your email address, a website URL, billing information, Internet Protocol (IP) addresses, or any other data that could reasonably be linked to your identity.

Unique identifiers can be used for various purposes, including remembering your browsing preferences, your purchase history, directing advertising specifically to you, collecting information about your browsing history, as well as determining whether emails sent to you by us were received and/or opened.

We also use the information we collect from your use of our existing programs and services to help us develop new ones, and at times to send you personalized ads based on your particular interests. However, we do not use sensitive information such as race, sexual orientation, religion, or health, to determine which ads we send you, and we do not collect genetic or biometric data (ex., fingerprints, retina patterns, voice waves).

Unique identifiers are sometimes stored in “cookies” (see below) to help websites display certain content in your browser, and to remember, for example, your preferred language. We may also collect information from the content you provide to us through our products and services. Be advised that this content may also include personal information that would also be protected by our Privacy Policy.

 

GATHERING PERSONAL DATA WITH YOUR CONSENT

Personal information that uniquely identifies you is only gathered with your explicit authorization and only in exchange for information, products, or services, whether free or paid. Be advised that if you choose not to provide this information you will not be able to receive information, products, or services offered by us to you as we will not have the means to deliver it to you.

 

We will only process your personal data if at least one of the following applies:

  1. You have given consent to the processing of your personal data;

  2. Processing is necessary for the performance of a contract to which you are a party;

  3. Processing is necessary for compliance with a legal obligation to which we are  subject;

  4. Processing is necessary to protect the vital interests of you or of another natural person;

  5. Processing is necessary for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest; and/or

  6. Processing is necessary for the purposes of the legitimate interests pursued by us or by a third party, except where such interests are overridden by one’s privacy rights or where the data subject is a child.

You always have ultimate control over the information you receive from us. Note that some of your information may be shared with third party payment processors and credit card companies in order to process payment transactions and the delivery of our products and/or services to you.

 

Any information that we may reasonably provide to other trusted businesses in order to process business transactions you choose to have with us are always in accordance with our instructions and comply with the terms of this Privacy Policy and the confidentiality we promise to uphold on your behalf. For example, we may use a third party service provider for customer support purposes.

 

We will never intentionally disclose any information regarding your personal identification to any third party without your consent. If you choose to provide us with such information, you agree to receive information, products, or services from this website.

 

If at any time you wish to opt-out, or unsubscribe, you may do so by clicking “unsubscribe” at the bottom of any email you receive from us, or by notifying the Company directly. See our contact information below. Rest assured that you always have the ability to manage your contact information.

 

We will always ask for your permission before using any of your personal information for a purpose that has not been covered in this Privacy Policy.

 

Be advised that when you click and follow a link on this Website that takes you to another website, your interactions outside of this website are no longer protected by our Privacy Policy.

 

NOTE: We may share information that does not include a unique identifier and would not reasonably be considered “personal data” in that it does not include information that would allow anyone to identify you as an individual. For example, advertisers or outside services may use non-personal data to enhance the experience of a visitor to their websites.
