This Privacy Policy describes how your personal information is collected, used, and shared when you visit or make a purchase from fitforartpatterns.com (the “Site”).

We refer to this automatically-collected information as “Device Information.”

We collect Device Information using the following technologies:

  • “Cookies” are data files that are placed on your device or computer and often include an anonymous unique identifier. Read more about cookies and how to disable them.
  • “Log files” track actions occurring on the Site, and collect data including your IP address, browser type, internet service provider, referring/exit pages, and date/time stamps.

When we talk about “Personal Information” in this Privacy Policy, we are talking both about Device Information and Order Information.

How do we use your personal information?

We use the Order Information that we collect generally to fulfill any orders placed through the Site (including processing your payment information, arranging for shipping, and providing you with invoices and/or order confirmations). Additionally, we use this Order Information to:

  • Communicate with you
  • Screen our orders for potential risk or fraud
  • Provide you with information or advertising related to our products or services, when in line with the preferences you have shared with us

We use the Device Information that we collect to help us screen for potential risk and fraud (in particular, your IP address), and more generally to improve and optimize our Site. (For example, we generate analytics about how our customers browse and interact with the Site, and we assess the success of our marketing and advertising campaigns.)

Sharing Your Personal Information

We share your Personal Information with third parties to help us use your Personal Information, as described above. For example, we use WooCommerce to power our online store, and WooCommerce payment and shipping extensions may see your personal information. We also use Google Analytics to help us understand how our customers use the Site. You can read more about how Google uses your Personal Information. You can also opt-out of Google Analytics.

Finally, we may also share your Personal Information to comply with applicable laws and regulations; to respond to a subpoena, search warrant, or other lawful requests for information we receive; or to otherwise protect our rights.
