Grab your drink of choice. The document is a doozy, but you should review it carefully. Here we go:
If you just want to get in touch with me for any other concern, I recommend visiting me on:
I collect information through the site at several different points.
Some general data (not personally identifiable information) from site visitors is automatically collected by krystinaramos.com. For example, krystinaramos.com may automatically capture information from your device or browser each time you interact with the site, for example, the type of browser you use, your operating system, your internet protocol (IP) address, language preference, website referrals, the pages you view and the amount of time you spend on the site. I use this information to help better understand how people use the site and enhance the services I offer.
I only ask for personal information when I truly need it to better serve you. This may include your name, email address and other details you choose to provide. I collect it by fair and lawful means, with your knowledge and consent. I also let you know why I am collecting it and how it will be used.
For instance, I collect information when you participate in any interactive features of the site and communicate with me via third-party social media sites. Additionally, when you contact me directly through my site using the contact form (if available) or email address, I will ask that you provide your name and email address in order to correspond with you. "To Whom It May Concern" or "Dear Recipient" are kind of meh ways to address someone by the way.
When you subscribe to a newsletter or email list, enter a promotion or particpate in a survey, I ask for your name and email address in order to send you the communications that you request. I may also use the information that you provide to send you emails from time to time about the site, announcements of events, industry updates, topics or other products and services that I believe may be of interest or relevance to you.
You may opt out of these communications by clicking the "Unsubscribe" button in the email or by emailing me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I keep the personal information I collect from my site for as long as necessary to provide you with my services and content or until you withdraw your consent for me to use them. The information will then be deleted. However, I cannot control the retention policies of third parties. You will need to contact those third parties directly and request they delete your data.
I do not share your personal information publicly or to third parties except where you have given me permission to do so or if the law requires it.
However, I may disclose your personal information to third parties who require such information to help me with various tasks, including hosting services, email delivery and customer service.
I may also use a similar technology called web beacons to collect general information about your site usage or interactions with promotions and emails (for instance, newsletters) I have sent you. A web beacon is a small graphic file- usually a one-pixel transparent image- that is located on a web page or in an email or other type of message. Web beacons typically work in conjunction with cookies to identify your behavior.
You can revoke your consent on the cookie banner by clicking the button below.
If you leave a comment on krystinaramos.com, the site collects the information you voluntarily provided in the fields in the comment form. This may include your name, email address and website URL. You may opt-in to saving these details in cookies so that you don't have to fill in the same fields again when you leave another comment.
The site also collects your IP address and browser user agent string (to help spam detection) when you leave a comment on the site.
If targeted ads aren't your thing, you can opt out in several ways:
Check your Google ad settings.
Go to your settings on Facebook and manage the Ad information from there.
Edit your security privacy settings in the Personalization menu on Twitter.
For Instagram, the way you control ads is on a case by case basis. Head on over to Instagram's Help Center to learn more.
The security of your information is important to me. I take reasonable measures to ensure the security of the information you provide me and the information I collect automatically. I follow generally accepted industry standards to help protect information about you from loss, theft, misuse and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration and destruction. However, no security measure is 100 percent perfect or impenetrable. Any information you transmit on the Internet cannot be made absolutely secure. I assume no responsibility or liability for the use or misuse of your information by other parties. Should there be a security breach of which I am aware, I will notify you immediately.
Sorry, Mom and Dad. This site is a kid free zone. krystinaramos.com is not intended for use by children under 18 years of age and I do not knowingly collect personal information from children. I highly encourage parents and guardians to monitor their children's online activities.
You are entitled to view, amend, or delete the personal information that my site holds. You can email requests directly to the site's data protection officer Krystina Ramos at email@example.com.
I am based in the state of Florida, USA and the information I collect is governed by U.S. law. By accessing or using the site or otherwise providing information to me, you consent to the processing and transfer of information in and to the U.S. and other countries.
