Sensitive Data

Stitching in Colour does NOT collect any sensitive data, such as race, ethnicity, religion/philosophical beliefs, political affiliations, sexual orientation, or genetic/biometric data.

Google Analytics

Currently, I do use Google Analytics (GA) on this site. And consequently, GA does stores cookies on your computer or device that collect a modest amount of data.

Because the security of your private data is serious business, GA has been set to anonymize your IP address. This means that GA does NOT collect any data that can personally identify you.

To improve your experience here and to create content that serves you, any data I collect is used strictly to provide me with the following data:

  • Where my visitors are located geographically generally, based on anonymized IP address;
  • Whether my visitors used a search engine or social media to find my site;
  • Whether my visitors using a desktop computer or a mobile device;
  • How long my visitors stick around to enjoy my content or if they just bounce; and
  • Which posts my visitors adore the  most.

NOTE: Please keep in mind that Google Analytics (GA) has their own privacy policies, which I have no control over. Please click HERE to learn what they are.

Leaving Comments

At this time, this site does not accept comments.

BUT please feel free use the contact form to say hi and share your sewnanigans! I would love to hear from you!

Contact Form

When you choose to leave your first name and email address in the contact form on this site, your contact information is used for ONE purpose only: that I can reply to you personally and privately.

Email Address Policy

You hate Spam. I hate Spam. We all hate Spam.

Stitching in Colour collects first name and/or email addresses if you voluntarily opt-in for my freebie. This means that you agree to email communications from your sewing buddy — me!

And if you do me the honor of sharing your email address with me for comments, for a freebie, or for a newsletter subscription, I wouldn’t dream of selling your personal data to anyone for any reason! Because that would be slimy!

However, if you wish to be deleted from my email list, I will honor your request immediately.

Plus, I promise only to send you helpful emails (no fluff!) and at a reasonable frequency.

Email Service Provider: Convertkit

Currently, I use Convertkit as my email service provider (ESP) to deliver my content straight into your email inbox.

They are committed to protecting our privacy. Click HERE to read their privacy policy.

Embedded Content

In order to provide you with richer content, I occasionally embed links to videos, images, and articles from external sites on Stitching in Colour. This embedded content acts in the same as if you actually visited that site.

And these sites may collect data about you and/or use cookies to track and monitor how you interact with the embedded content. This is beyond my control.

Site Security

This site is powered by WordPress.org. WordPress.org is GDPR-compliant. By default, WordPress.org does NOT collect any personal data about you or your visit to this site.

I keep WordPress and all plug-ins on this site updated to the latest versions. And I have also implemented a security plug-in to prevent site breaches.

In the event of a meaningful site breach, you will be contacted by email within 72 hours.

Younger Audiences

This site is NOT intended for younger audiences. Because I am not above using the occasional colourful language to make a point.

Unbiased Content

I would NEVER accept compensation for a positive review. Because to do so would be slimy and gross! If I like a product, I will tell you so. And if hate a product, I will tell you so.

Every single word written on this site is my truth at the time it was published. And if something changes my mind, I will update the content to reflect my current position.

Copyright

I’ve sweated and agonized over each and every word on my blog. So I want you to enjoy them and, hopefully, be inspired.

BUT it’s not nice to plagiarize!

If you enjoy my point of view and would like to share my content, that’s fantastic! However, I ask that you honor the following three requirements:

  1. Share ONE photo.
  2. Link back to the original post — not my homepage.
  3. Finally, make sure that the credit is clearly visible.

And if you would like to pay me the supreme compliment of using my words, please use this contact form to ask for written permission! Thank you for understanding.

People Steal

People steal. I wish it wasn’t so. But it is. So I can’t be responsible if my content is stolen and distributed elsewhere.

Guest Posting

For now, this is my little corner of the Internet, so I don’t accept guest posts.

Consent

By hanging out with me here at Stitching in Colour, you are, in fact, saying yes to AND that you understand my site policies as stated here.

If you don’t feel comfortable with any of my policies, please don’t visit my site.
