Your privacy is important to me. I will not share any personally identifiable information with anyone for any reason without your explicit consent and will keep it confidential, except as required by law. Consent may be expressed in writing or implied, and in some cases, it may be provided verbally, electronically, or through an authorized representative, provided such representative has the appropriate written authorization to do so. You can withdraw your consent to the further use of your Personal Information at any time, subject to any legal or contractual restrictions, and upon reasonable notice to me. Upon request, I will explain to the individual any implications of withdrawing consent.

I will only collect information that is reasonably necessary to provide appropriate services. I may also use “cookies” to collect certain information from all users, including website visitors who don’t buy anything through my Website. A cookie is a string of data my system sends to your computer and then uses to identify your computer when you return to my Website.
