About My Privacy Policy

I am committed to maintaining the trust and privacy of the visitors to the website krystinaramos.com. This notice (this "Privacy Policy") describes how and when I collect, use and share the information you provide when you use my site. When the terms “I," “my” or “me” are mentioned, I mean the owner of this site – Krystina Ramos. By using my site, you consent to my site's Terms and consent to the Privacy Policy. If you do not agree and consent, please discontinue the use of my site. Still with me? Read on.

Changes to The Privacy Policy

My privacy policy is always under review and most likely will be updated in the future. I'll let you know about any significant changes though. Please come back and check it from time to time.

The Information I Collect

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.

Products or services may be available for purchase via a third party platform like Creative Market. If you wish to purchase a product or service offered through the Creative Market platform, you may be asked to provide your basic profile information. krystinaramos.com does not have access to your email or payment details from Creative Market. That information is handled through Creative Market. Refer to Creative Market's privacy policyprivacy policy

on how they treat your information.

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.

I use a third party provider, MailChimp, to monitor email marketing subscriber lists and deliver communications to subscribers of my newsletters or email lists. For more information, see MailChimp’s privacy policy.

You may opt out of these communications by clicking the "Unsubscribe" button in the email or by emailing me at hello@krystinaramos.com.

The Information I Hold

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.

Cookies and Web Beacons

This site uses cookies, and no I'm not talking about the delicious Publix chocolate chip kind. Cookies are small text files placed on your web browser, your computer or mobile device (if you allow) when you visit a website, enabling the website to remember your actions and preferences over a period of time. Typically they are used to store user preferences for future visits or track website activity. Cookies generally do not collect any personal information stored on your computer or mobile device.

I may use cookies for a number of reasons, such as to enhance the functionality of the site, personalize content and ads, to provide social media features, to support or enable security features, as well as to analyze how the site is being used and monitor site performance. These cookies help me to improve the quality of content and your experience on my site.

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.

I do not use cookies or web beacons to collect personal information.

Google Analytics

I use Google Analytics to collect and analyze visitor data, which helps improve my site and digital marketing efforts. Google Analytics gathers information about site usage and creates reports for my site with the help of cookies. For more information about Google Analytics' data practices, view this Google Analytics article. If you'd like to opt out of all Google Analytics cookies on my site (plus any other sites that use Google Analytics), install a browser plugin. You can find Google's privacy policy here.

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.

Links to Other Sites

There may be links to other websites on my site and social media channels. These websites may collect data about you. Follow the links at your own risk. I have no control of those websites. They are not governed by this Privacy Policy, and if you have any concerns how a website uses your information, you'll need to check their privacy policy. This applies to the embedded content (videos, images, articles, etc.) I may include in articles on the site as well.

Affiliate Links

My site may engage in affiliate marketing. For example, third party affiliate marketing network Amazon uses cookies to ensure that I get a commission when you buy things from them or another third party after clicking on the affiliate link in my content. You should consult Amazon’s Privacy Policy for detailed information on their practices.

Remarketing/Retargeting

Occasionally, at my discretion, the site may engage in remarketing efforts with third parties, such as Google, Facebook, Twitter or Instagram, to advertise the site. These companies use cookies to deliver online ads based on your past visits to the site. This allows me to fine tune my marketing to better suit your needs and showcase ads that are relevant to you.

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.

Visit the Network Advertising Initiative opt-out page to opt out of a third-party ad network’s use of cookies.

Security

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.
