Pretty DIY Home is operated in Bashaw, Canada by Leanna Forsythe.  The website is for entertainment purposes for residents of the United States and Canada.   For various reasons, I am not able to target any other countries in any way.

This privacy policy does seem like a bunch of legal jargon,  but it is my promise to you.

What to expect when you become a Pretty DIY Home Email Subscriber.

I hate spam. My inbox fills with useless junk that I didn’t ask for or want to see.  I will not send you spam.

It irks me when I sign up for one thing and receive another.  So, my commitment to you is simple… I will not send you irrelevant emails.

What you can expect to receive as a Pretty DIY Home Subscriber?

You will receive a Weekly Newsletter updating you with what’s happening in my world and my newest blog posts, wha’s up and coming, as well as offers and updates.

The Pretty DIY Home Library

In efforts to keep my resources secure, I ask you to register with your name and email address.  Registration helps deter malicious people from accessing my content.   You will receive an email containing the login information.

I Will Never

You have my promise that I will NEVER…

Sell your email address to anyone, no matter how much money they offer me or how important I think they are.

Send you an offer that is spam

Fill your inbox with irrelevant junk mail.

Personal Information I Collect

Affiliate Marketing

When you visit Pretty DIY Home, I automatically collect certain information about your device, including information about your web browser, IP address, time zone, and some of the cookies that are installed on your device. Additionally, as you browse the Site, I collect information about the individual web pages or products that you view, what websites or search terms referred you to the Site, and information about how you interact with the Site. This automatically-collected information is referred to as  “Device Information.”

We collect Device Information using the following technologies:

– “Cookies” are data files that are placed on your device or computer and often include an anonymous unique identifier. For more information about cookies, and how to disable cookies, visit http://www.allaboutcookies.org.

– “Web beacons,” “tags,” and “pixels” are electronic files used to record information about how you browse the Site.

Two types of email collection forms are used on the Site. The first being the form at the bottom of a post where you can share comments. Your email address is used to connect your account with Gravatar if you have one but is not used for any other purpose.

Forms for receiving special offers (printable packs, ebooks, etc.) are operated by Mail Chimp, an email service provider. Your email address and name will be stored by Mail Chimp and is accessible by myself Leanna Forsythe

Additionally when you make a purchase or attempt to make a purchase through the Site, we collect certain information from you, including your name, billing address, shipping address, email address, and phone number. We refer to this information as “Order Information.” Your payment information is collected by our payment processor (Stripe or Paypal) and is not stored within our website.

When we talk about “Personal Information” in this Privacy Policy, we are talking both about Device Information and Order Information.
