Privacy Policy

Effective June 8, 2018

 

The following Privacy Policy discloses the information gathering practices for the website www.patrickpaulgarlinger.com.  This Privacy Policy was created to demonstrate my commitment to your privacy.  My website is designed so that you can visit it without any requirement that you provide personally identifiable information (“PII”), although you are permitted to opt-in to certain services and provide the necessary PII for those services. If you choose to provide me with PII, I will use that information to support your client relationship with me.

 

What I Collect:

I do not collect your email address or other PII unless you contact me by email, subscribe to my newsletter or purchase a session with me.

The Contact Form used on this website is for your use to contact me by email.  It requests that you provide your name and email address.  You can provide only your email address, if you so choose.  When you provide your PII by use of the Contact Form, you are electing to be added to my direct mailing list.  You always have the option to opt out of receiving direct email by use of the Unsubscribe link on the bottom of any email communication provided to you.  Additionally, you can send a direct email to patrick@patrickpaulgarlinger.comto request to be unsubscribed.

 

On my web page, you can schedule a private session.  The types of PII that may be collected by booking a session include name, email address, and phone number.  My website provides you with the option of paying via PayPal.  If you opt to pay for a session via PayPal, I will receive PII from PayPal such as name, email, and transaction amount.  I will use your information to schedule and accept payment for a session and is not retained for other purposes.

 

Collection of Financial Information:

Purchases made on my website through PayPal are transacted at the user’s discretion.  Any information that you provide to PayPal will be subject to PayPal’s privacy policy, rather than this Privacy Policy.  I have no control over, and am not responsible for, PayPal’s use of information collected from you for purchasing a session with me.

Data Retention:

I keep your PII for as long as needed or permitted in light of the purpose(s) for which it was obtained.  The criteria used to determine my retention periods include:

·      for as long as I have an ongoing relationship with you and provide services to you,

·      as required by a legal obligation to which I am subject, or

·      as advisable in light of my legal position (such as in regard of applicable statutes of limitations, litigation, or regulatory investigations).

 

Whom I Share Personal Information With:

Patrick Paul Garlinger does not and will not share, sell, rent or lease your PII to others unless I have your permission or is required by law.  I will not use or share the PII provided by the client online in ways unrelated to the ones described above without first offering disclosing that use to you and receiving your permission.
