PRIVACY POLICY

As of 03/06/2020

A FEW FUNDAMENTAL PRINCIPLES:

  • I am thoughtful about the personal information I ask you to provide and the personal information that is collected about you through the operation of my services.

  • I store personal information for only as long as I have a reason to keep it.

Below is the Privacy Policy, which incorporates and clarifies these principles.


POLICY

This Privacy Policy applies to information that I collect about you when you use:

  • My websites 

  • My mobile applications

Throughout this Privacy Policy I’ll refer to my websites, mobile applications, and other products and services collectively as “Services.” Please note that this Privacy Policy does not apply to any of products or services, like Apple, that have a separate privacy policy. Below I explain how I collect, use, and share information about you, along with the choices that you have with respect to that information.

I do not use iMessage sticker packs to proactively track or store any personalized user information.

INFORMATION I COLLECT

I only collect information about you if I have a reason to do so — for example, to provide my Services, to communicate with you, or to make my Services better. I collect this information from three sources: if and when you provide information to me, automatically through operating my Services, and from outside sources. Usually in the form of contact forms, emails, phone conversations, etc.

HOW AND WHY I USE INFORMATION
PURPOSES FOR USING INFORMATION

I use information about you for the purposes listed below:

  • To provide my Services. For example, provide customer service, process payments and invoices.

  • To ensure quality, maintain safety, and improve my Services. 

  • To market my Services and measure, gauge, and improve the effectiveness of my marketing. 

  • To protect my Services, my clients, and the public. For example, by detecting security incidents; detecting and protecting against malicious, deceptive, fraudulent, or illegal activity; fighting spam; complying with my legal obligations; and protecting my rights, property, and others, which may result in me, for example, declining a transaction or terminating Services.

  • To fix problems with my Services. For example, preventing issues.

  • To communicate with you. For example, by emailing you to ask for your feedback, share tips for getting the most out of my service. 

HOW I SHARE INFORMATION

I share information about you in limited circumstances, and with appropriate safeguards on your privacy. These are spelled out below, as well as in the section called Ads and Analytics Services Provided by Others:​

  • Third-party vendors: I may share information about you with third-party vendors who need the information in order to provide their services to me, or to provide their services to you. This includes vendors that help me provide my Services to you;  those that assist me with my marketing efforts (e.g., by providing tools for identifying a specific marketing target group or improving our marketing campaigns, and by placing ads to market our services); those that help me understand and enhance my Services (like analytics providers); those that make tools to help me run my operations (like programs that help me with task management, scheduling, word processing, email and other communications). 

  • Legal and regulatory requirements: I may disclose information about you in response to a subpoena, court order, or other governmental request. 

  • In the unlikely event that I go out of business or enters bankruptcy, Client information would likely be one of the assets that is transferred or acquired by a third party. If any of these events were to happen, this Privacy Policy would continue to apply to your information and the party receiving your information may continue to use your information, but only consistent with this Privacy Policy.


I have a long-standing policy that I do not sell my client's data. I am not a data broker, I don't sell your personal information to data brokers, and I don't sell your information to other companies that want to spam you with marketing emails. 

​HOW LONG I KEEP INFORMATION

I generally discard information about you when it’s no longer needed for the purposes for which I collect and use it — described in the section above on How and Why We Use Information — and we’re not legally required to keep it. 

SECURITY

While no online service is 100% secure, I work very hard to protect information about you against unauthorized access, use, alteration, or destruction, and take reasonable measures to do so. 

You have several choices available when it comes to information about you:

  • Limit the information that you provide

  • Limit access to information on your mobile device

​HOW TO REACH ME

If you have a question about this Privacy Policy, or you would like to contact me, please contact through our web form or via email. These are the fastest ways to get a response to your inquiry.

 Please note this Privacy Policy only covers the collection of information by Ayami K Garcia or Dos Gatos Studio,LLC and does not cover the collection of information by any third-party advertisers or analytics providers.


PRIVACY POLICY CHANGES

Although most changes are likely to be minor, I may change the Privacy Policy from time to time. I encourage visitors to frequently check this page for any changes to its Privacy Policy. Your further use of my Services after a change to the Privacy Policy will be subject to the updated policy immediately.

That’s it! Thanks for reading.
