This privacy policy sets out how Wendy Gold Studios™ uses and protects any information that you give us when you use this website, and your ability to review, correct and opt out of our use of the information. Wendy Gold Studios™ is committed to ensuring that your privacy is protected. Be assured that if we ask you to provide certain information by which you can be identified when using this website, that it will only be used in accordance with this privacy statement. By using our web site, or sharing your contact information with us, you are accepting and consenting to the practices described in this Privacy Policy.

What We Collect
When you purchase or order a product from Wendy Gold Studios™ or subscribe to our email list, we ask you to provide certain contact information about yourself, such as your name, shipping/billing address, telephone number, email address, social media user name, credit card information, and other information. Some of this information is used by us to maintain a record of your product purchases.

We may collect and store information about your location by converting your IP address into a rough geo-location. We may use location information to improve and personalize our services for you. If you do not want us to collect location information, you may disable that feature on your mobile device.

Whether or not to provide such information is completely your own choice. But if you choose not to provide the information we request, you may be unable to purchase products, or access certain services, offers and content on our web site. In addition, we may need to contact you via phone, email or mail to address questions or issues specific to your order, entry, etc., even if you have opted to not receive marketing communications from us.

In general, you can visit many of our web pages without telling us who you are or revealing any contact information about yourself. We may track the Internet domain address from which people visit us and analyze this data for preferences, trends, and site usage statistics, but individual users will remain anonymous, unless you voluntarily tell us who you are.

What We Do With This Information
The contact information you choose to share is used for internal purposes such as:
  - internal record keeping, confirming and tracking your order, subscriptions, or registration on our site
  - analyzing preferences, trends and statistics
  - screening our orders for potential fraud or risk
- sending promotional emails about new products, special offers or other information which we think you may find interesting
- creating anonymous and aggregated information repositories for analytics, including the measurement of visitors’ interest in and use of various portions or features of the site

We process your contact information only in ways compatible with the purposes for which it was collected or authorized by you. Wendy Gold Studios™ does not not sell, distribute or lease your personal information to third parties or advertisers unless we have your permission or are required by law to do so.

Security
We are committed to ensuring that information you provide to Wendy Gold Studios™ is secure. In order to prevent unauthorized access or disclosure, we have put in place suitable physical, electronic and managerial procedures to safeguard and to protect the confidentiality and security of information transmitted to us. To guard information delivered to us electronically, our web sites use Secure Sockets Layer (SSL). SSL encrypts your credit card number, name and address so only we are able to decode your information. It is unfortunate but realistic to note that no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we strive to protect your contact information to the extent permitted by law, we do not guarantee or warrant the security of any information you transmit to or from our web sites, and you do so at your own risk.

We may also use cookies in emails that you receive from us.

Overall, cookies help us provide you with a better website, by enabling us to monitor which pages you find useful and which you do not. A cookie in no way gives us access to your computer or any information about you, other than the data you choose to share with us. You can choose to accept or decline cookies. Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer. This may prevent you from taking full advantage of the website.
