Privacy Policy

Introduction

As a reader of many other sites, I understand how important privacy, is especially in this day and age.

I want to ensure that my readers feel as safe as possible and the information below is full disclosure on what happens on willowbeans.co.uk (hereon referred to as “the Site”).

Rest assured that I will never share your information or email with anyone else.

Please read this Privacy Policy carefully along with my Cookie Policy and Disclosure. By visiting and using the Site, you agree that your use of the Site, and any dispute over privacy, is governed by this Privacy Policy. Because the Web is ever-evolving, I may need to change our Privacy Policy at some point in the future, in which case I’ll post the changes to this Privacy Policy on the Site and update the Effective Date of the policy to reflect the date of the changes. By continuing to use the Site after I post any such changes, you accept the Privacy Policy as modified. If you have any questions or concerns regarding my privacy policy please email [email protected].

Please keep in mind that whenever you voluntarily make your personal information available for viewing by third parties online – for example on message boards, weblogs, through email, or in chat areas – that information can be seen, collected and used by others besides me. I cannot be responsible for any unauthorised third-party use of such information.

How Do We Store Your Information?

If you subscribe to my newsletter or download my content, your information is stored on a list server (i.e. Mailerlite) that delivers my content and messaging. Your information can only be accessed by those who help manage those lists to deliver content to those who agree to receive my material. You can read Mailerlite’s Privacy Policy.

All of the messaging or emails that are sent to you by me include an unsubscribe link in them. You can remove yourself at any time from the mailing list by clicking on the unsubscribe link that can be found in every communication that I send you.

Email Subscriptions

Users may choose to receive email updates, via Mailerlite, by submitting an email address to the email subscription form. This service is managed through Mailerlite. I use a secure opt-in subscription system and I reserve the right to contact subscribers with information related to this website and blog. Subscribers may unsubscribe anytime and every email delivered will contain an “Unsubscribe” link. 

When leaving a comment, users must submit a name and email address. To combat spam, WillowBeans also records the IP address of anyone submitting a comment.

Again, none of this information will be shared with anyone.

Removing Your Data

If you would like to be removed from the email newsletter, you can click the “unsubscribe” link at the bottom of any of my emails or you can simply use the contact form here to ask me to remove you.

Purchases

Users who make a purchase through the site consent to their data being processed by the site and by SendOwl. SendOwl is a service that helps me to sell my digital products and services by connecting the site to payment processors and providing a digital delivery mechanism. SendOwl’s Privacy policy can be found here.

Users who make a purchase also consent to their data being processed by the provider of their chosen payment method:

Facebook

As an advertiser on Facebook and through my Facebook page (willowbeanscrafts), WillowBeans may collect content or information from a Facebook user. Such information may be used in the same manner specified in this Privacy Policy. You consent to the collection of such information. WillowBeans abides by Facebook’s Data Use Restrictions.

Any ad data collected, received or derived from our Facebook ad (“Facebook advertising data”) is only shared with someone acting on my behalf, such as a service provider. I’m responsible for ensuring that my service providers protect any Facebook advertising data or any other information obtained from me, limit the use of all of that information, and keep it confidential and secure.

Facebook advertising data is NOT used for any purpose (including retargeting, commingling data across multiple advertisers’ campaigns, or allowing piggybacking or redirecting with tags), except on an aggregate and anonymous basis (unless authorised by Facebook) and only to assess the performance and effectiveness of my Facebook advertising campaigns.

I do not use Facebook advertising data, including the targeting criteria for a Facebook ad, to build, append to, edit, influence, or augment user profiles, including profiles associated with any mobile device identifier or other unique identifiers that identify any particular user, browser, computer or device.

I do not transfer any Facebook advertising data (including anonymous, aggregate, or derived data) to any ad network, ad exchange, data broker or other advertising or monetisation related service.

Ezoic may employ a variety of technologies on this website, including to display advertisements and enable advertising to visitors of this website.

General Data Privacy Regulation (GDPR)

The GDPR took effect on May 25, 2018, and is intended to protect the data of European Union (EU) citizens. WillowBeans markets its site, content, products and/or services online but I do not specifically target marketing to the EU. If the data that you provide to me in the course of your use of the Site, content, products and/or services is governed by GDPR, WillowBeans will abide by the relevant portions of the Regulation.

If you are a resident of the European Economic Area (EEA) or are accessing this site from within the EEA, you may have the right to request: access to, correction of, deletion of; portability of; and restriction or objection to processing, of your personal data. This includes the “right to be forgotten.”

With that said, I’d like to sincerely thank you and all my readers.
