Disclosure/Privacy Policy:


This policy was last updated May 17, 2018.


Your privacy is important to The Attic Girl. The policy below outlines how your personal information is collected and how it is used when you use our website.


You agree to the terms of this policy when you use this website. This privacy policy may change from time to time. If any changes are made, then you will be notified by revising the date at the top of this policy.


About The Attic Girl:
Founded in 2009 and based in USA, The Attic Girl is an independently operated blog run by Shelly Dixon. 


How Information is Collected

Here is how your information is collected on The Attic Girl:


  • if you subscribe to the newsletter
  • if you leave a comment on the blog
  • through website cookies and log files
  • through Google Analytics
  • to contact you by email if you have won a giveaway on this site


Newsletter

If you decide to join the newsletter via any of the many sign up forms located throughout this website, then your first name and email address are required. We require your email address in order to send you the emails and we require your first name so that my emails to you will include a friendly personalized note.

At the bottom of every email I send, you will find a link to unsubscribe. You may unsubscribe from the newsletter at any time. If you are having trouble unsubscribing or would like to be removed from the newsletter, then simply send me an email at theatticgirl76 @ gmail.com asking to be removed.
I currently use Gmail as my email service provider (read their privacy policy here https://www.google.com/intl/en_us/gmail/about/policy/). Your data is collected and then passed to them. Tags are used within Gmail to track your actions and page visits so that future emails can be better tailored to meet your needs.
Currently, I send a minimum of two emails per week. 
Your email and name are never sold or given away to a third party.
All emails you receive are CAN-SPAM compliant. At the bottom of every email, you will find information on how to contact the sender, as well as information on how to unsubscribe.

All newsletters sent may contain tracking pixels. The pixel is embedded in emails and allows an analysis of the success of online marketing campaigns. Because of these tracking pixels, we may see if and when you open an email and which links within the email you click. Also, this allows the Website to adapt the content of future newsletters to the interests of the user. This behavior will not be passed on to third parties.
Blog Comments
Love something you read on my blog? Then leaving a comment is a great way to do that! I personally love hearing your feedback. If you choose to leave a comment on a blog post, then please be aware that the comment is then public and visible to anyone who reads the comment section. Your email address is never shared or disclosed, but your name and comment will be visible to others.
It is highly recommended that you avoid leaving detailed personal information in your comments.
I reserve the right to remove comments deemed as inappropriate, threatening, profane, or spammy without notice.

Affiliates

I sell products via affiliate programs. Each program collects and retains their own data. I do not have access to the personal information that is collected by these affiliate programs. It is best to read their individual privacy policies for more information on how your data is collected and used.
