This Privacy Policy is a legally binding agreement between Anna-Maria Cahalane (“Pencil You In,” “we,” “our”, "me" or “us”) and you as the user of the Services. By using the Services, you hereby warrant and represent that (i) you have read, understand and agree to this Privacy Policy, and (ii) if you are acting on behalf of your employer or an entity, you have the authority to accept and agree to this Privacy Policy.

 Squarespace

This Site is hosted by Squarespace. Personal Information (as defined below) hosted by or through Squarespace is subject to their privacy policy which may or may not contain terms as protective as this Privacy Policy. By using our Site, you are agreeing to be bound by Squarespace’s privacy policy, which can be found at https://www.squarespace.com/privacy.

 Information Collection

 For the purposes of this Privacy Policy, “Personal Information” means data that allows someone to identify or contact you, including, for example, your name and e-mail address, as well as any other non-public information about you that is associated with or linked to any of the foregoing data.

 Personal Information We Collect

 When you interact with us, we collect Personal Information that you voluntarily provide. For example, when you submit a Contact Form enquiry, we may ask you to provide information such as your name and e-mail address. In addition to collecting information on our Site, we may collect information from you when you communicate with us via e-mail. You can choose not to provide any information that is requested of you by us. However, this may limit your ability to use the Services.

 Non-Personal Information

We and/or our third-party service providers may also collect information in a form that does not personally identify you (“Non-Personal Information”). Non-Personal Information can include certain Personal Information that has been de-identified; that is, information that has been rendered anonymous. We and/or our third-party service providers obtain Non-Personal Information about you from information that you provide us, either separately or together with your Personal Information. We also use cookies and other technologies to passively collect Non-Personal Information as described below.

 In this Privacy Policy, we refer to all information collected from or about you, including Personal Information and Non-Personal Information, as “Your Information.”

 Non-Personal Information Automatically Collected

 We and our third-party service providers may use a variety of technologies, now and hereafter devised, that automatically record certain usage information. When accessing our Site, Squarespace may log your IP address, access URL, time of access, geographic location, browser type, and referral URL in order to provide us with internal information regarding Site traffic statistics. This information may also be used to identify users who are using our Site for spam or other activity that is deemed in conflict with our Terms of Service. Otherwise, this information is used in the aggregate, and is never linked back to any Personal Information. 

 Cookies and Other Technologies We Use

 Squarespace and our other service providers may use cookies (both session cookies and persistent cookies) to analyze trends, administer our Site, track your movements around our Site, better understand how you interact with our Site, determine interest in particular content and monitor aggregate usage by visitors and online traffic routing. We may receive reports based on the use of these technologies by these companies on an individual and aggregated basis. You may be able to instruct your browser, by changing its option, to stop accepting cookies or to prompt you before accepting a cookie from the online services you visit. You may also remove persistent cookies by following your web browser’s help file directions. If you do not accept cookies, however, you may not be able to use all portions of our Site or all functionality of our Site.

 Squarespace and our other service providers may also use “pixel tags,” “web beacons,” “clear GIFs,” or similar means in connection with our Site and HTML-formatted e-mail messages to, among other things, track the actions of users, to determine the success of marketing campaigns and to compile aggregate statistics about Site usage and response rates. This information is collected anonymously, in a manner that does not personally identify you.

 Our Use of Your Information

 We mainly use Your Information, either alone or in combination with other information, so that we can provide, enhance and personalize our Services and related content.

 Your Information is used and disclosed for, but is not limited to, the following purposes:

•    to provide you with the best user experience possible;

•    to respond to your questions and comments;

•   to communicate with you regarding updates to our Services;

•   to send you our newsletter or other subscriptions;

•   to help us develop, customize, deliver, support and improve our Services and content;

•   to protect the rights or property of Anna-Maria Cahalane or our users, and prevent fraud and other prohibited or illegal activities;

•   for distribution to third-party service providers that provide services to us;

•   to protect the security of our Services and business;

•   to conduct system administration and system troubleshooting and to diagnose or fix technology problems;

We may combine your Personal Information with Non-Personal Information and aggregate it with information collected from other users or sources to attempt to provide you with a better experience, to improve the quality of our Services, and to analyze and understand how our Services are used. We may also use the combined information without aggregating it to serve you specifically. After you terminate your use of the Services, we may continue to use your Non-Personal Information for statistical purposes or other purposes as we see fit. Please note that we cannot guarantee that Non-Personal Information will not identify you as we cannot guarantee that others with access to Non-Personal Information may not have knowledge sufficient to identify you.

 Information Sharing and Disclosure

 We will not rent or sell your Personal Information to others. Non-Personal Information may be provided to third parties for marketing, advertising, or other uses.

 Analytics information

Squarespace uses analytics tools to help us measure traffic and usage trends for our Site. These tools collect information sent by your browser as part of a web page request, including the web pages you visit, your browser add-ons, and other information that assists us in improving our Site. We may collect and use this analytics information together with your Personal Information and stitch together session data from user visits to build a broader profile of our individual users so that we can serve you better.

 Data Transfer

Squarespace processes Personal Information in the United States of America. You should be aware that the United States and other countries have not harmonized their privacy regulations. Because Squarespace is located in the United States, we have written our Privacy Policy to satisfy United States regulations.

Security

Please be advised that while we strive to protect your Personal Information and privacy, we cannot guarantee or warrant the security of any information you disclose or transmit to us online and we are not responsible for the theft, destruction or inadvertent disclosure of your Personal Information.

Compromise of Personal Information

In the event that Personal Information is compromised as a result of a breach of security, we will promptly notify those persons whose Personal Information has been compromised, in accordance with the notification procedures set forth in this Privacy Policy, or as otherwise required by applicable law. In the event that we or our Site suffers a data security breach that requires us to provide you with notice, such as under applicable law, you consent to allow us to provide you with such notice by sending an e-mail to the e-mail address you have provided to us.

 Changes to this Privacy Policy

Our security and this Privacy Policy are periodically reviewed and enhanced as necessary. This Privacy Policy might change as we update and expand the Services. We will notify you of any material changes by posting the new Privacy Policy on our Site. We encourage you to review this Privacy Policy periodically. Your continued use of the Services after any change in this Privacy Policy will constitute your acceptance of such change.
