Privacy Policy

Privacy PolicyRest assured, your data is always safe with me. I never sell, share, rent nor abuse the information you choose to share. Your participation in my projects is appreciated. Your trust is of utmost importance to me. All my projects and websites adhere to this privacy promise…

  • I only collect basic info such as first and last name.
  • Of course… I need to know your email address.
  • Sometimes I may ask which country you are in.
  • Other than that, I don’t know much about you.
  • Even if I did, this privacy policy is watertight.
  • All your information is safe and sound with me.

I don’t like legalese either. Who reads all the fine print anyway? To make things easier for you, I’ve bust up the jargon into bullet points and pictures. Short, sweet and simple. Of course, the legal beagles insist that I do publish the formal version, so you can find it right at the bottom of this page.


Data ScrutinyI do not analyze your private data…

  • I only collect basic info like first and last name.
  • Of course… I need to know your email address.
  • Sometimes I may ask which country you are in.
  • Other than that, I don’t know much about you.
  • Even if I did, this privacy policy is watertight.
  • Your basic information is safe and sound with me.

 

I do not retain any credit card details…

  • The only thing I may charge for is membership fees.No credit card data
  • Transactions are securely processed by PayPal/Stripe.
  • You credit card is charged directly by PayPal/Stripe.
  • I never get to see that credit card number at all.
  • Hence, there is no way I can retain card details.

 

I use cookies to personalize my websites…

  • Most of my project websites are personalized.Web Cookies
  • I do that by saving your name in browser cookies.
  • These are tiny snippets of data kept in your browser.
  • They are safe, you can’t eat them and neither can I.
  • You can flush them if you wish, but no need to panic.
  • These cookies do no harm and make me look smart.

 

No sharingI never share, lend nor rent out data…

  • Of course I have to keep track of my members.
  • I know your first, last name and email address.
  • The latter is what makes people panic about SPAM.
  • Relax, I will NEVER share your details with anyone.
  • Why would I? You are an extremely valuable asset.
  • Hence, you can be assured I keep my ists private.
  • You can interact with other members if you so wish.
  • Post your data in my blogs at your own discretion.

 

Double Opt-inAll my mailing lists are DOUBLE opt-in…

  • Maintaining distribution lists can be a tricky business.
  • People forget where they subscribe, then get upset.
  • Therefore, I use the third party service Mailchimp.
  • They are experts and know how to send email safely.
  • I use the double opt-in method for all our email lists.
  • That means subscribers MUST verify they signed up.
  • There can be no mistake, dispute and/or unhappiness.

  • I can only send emails to VERIFIED subscribers.
  • When I do, I keep it short, sweet and concise.
  • I also insist that my affiliates do not send SPAM.
  • Any affiliates caught spamming are terminated.

 

Targeted MailsI DO send out relevant information…

  • There are times when I do send out information.
  • However, only to members who have requested it.
  • The purpose is to communicate a specific URL.
  • Most probably a specific product and/or service.
  • I do this in order to include your tracking link/ID.
  • I may earn commissions from various merchants.
  • It does not mean that I blast emails out randomly.
  • These emails are VERY targeted to my members.
  • Members can unsubscribe if they are not interested.
  • Email marketing is always done very professionally.

 

UnsubscribeMy subscribers can leave at ANY time…

  • All my list subscribers have to sign up voluntarily.
  • Subscribers can of course leave lists at any time.
  • This is done very easily from the subscriber’s end.
  • Simply click on Unsubscribe in any email received.
  • Your email address is then immediately removed.

 

Ethics & StandardsGood ethics and standards always apply…

  • The Internet is sometimes called the Wild Wild Web.
  • There are those who do behave like online cowboys.
  • They don’t last long and any success is short-lived.
  • I have… and intend to be around for a long time.
  • My business conduct and professionalism is key.
  • Ethics & Standards here are never compromised.

Privacy PolicyPrivacy Policy

The bullet points above, are extracted form the fine print below. Please regard the text below as the legally binding version of my strict privacy policy. Users of this website are deemed to have read this and aware of the content when creating their account. Herby Olschewski reserves the right to modify the content of the policy at any given time. Any changes will be communicated via emailed via my newsletter.

 

Herby Olschewski (herein referred to as "this Site") strives to offer its visitors the many advantages of Internet technology and to provide an inter-active and personalized experience. I may use personally Identifiable Information (your name, email address, street address  telephone number) subject to the terms of this privacy policy. I will never sell, barter, or rent your email address to any unauthorized third party.
How I gather information from users:

How I collect and store information depends on the page you are visiting, the activities in which you elect to participate and the services provided. For example, you may be asked to provide information when you register for access to certain portions of our site or request certain features, such as newsletters or when you subscribe as a member. You may provide information when you participate in sweepstakes and contests, message boards and chat rooms, and other interactive areas of my sites, where applicable. Like most Web sites, this Site may collect information automatically and through the use of electronic tools that may be transparent to our visitors. For example, I may log the name of your Internet Service Provider or use cookie technology to recognize you and hold information from your visit. Among other things, the cookie may store your user name and password, sparing you from having to re-enter that information each time you visit, or may control the number of times you encounter a particular advertisement while visiting our site. As I adopt additional technology, I may also gather information through other means. In certain cases, you can choose not to provide me with information, for example by setting your browser to refuse to accept cookies, but if you do you may be unable to access certain portions of the site or may be asked to re-enter your user name and password, and I may not be able to customize the site’s features according to your preferences.

What I do with the information we collect:

Like other Web publishers, I collect information to enhance your visit and deliver more individualized info, content and advertising. Aggregated information (information that does not personally identify you) may be used in many ways. For example, I may combine information about your usage patterns with similar information obtained from other users to help enhance my sites and services (e.g., to learn which pages are visited most or what features are most attractive). I may occasionally provide limited personal information to trustworthy third parties for direct mail offers and to make my future marketing efforts more efficient, but you can tell me not to. Such information includes your name and mailing address or other information where. This information may be combined with demographic information and past purchase information. We will never include your email address or credit card information. We may use personally identifiable information collected on this Site to communicate with you about your registration and customization preferences; my Terms of Use and privacy policy; services and products offered by this Site and other topics I think you might find of interest. Personally identifiable information collected by this Site may also be used for other purposes, including but not limited to site administration, troubleshooting, processing of e-commerce transactions, administration of sweepstakes and contests, and other communications with you. Certain third parties who provide technical support for the operation of our site (our Web hosting service for example) may access such information. I will use your information only as permitted by law. In addition, from time to time as I continue to develop my business, I may sell, buy, merge or partner with other companies or businesses. In such transactions, user information may be among the transferred assets. I may also disclose your information in response to a court order, at other times when I believe we are reasonably required to do so by law, in connection with the collection of amounts you may owe to me, and/or to law enforcement authorities whenever I deem it appropriate or necessary. Please note we may not provide you with notice prior to disclosure in such cases. The use of information as described herein may or may not be how information that is collected is customarily used by this site. While actual use of any information collected may be used quite conservatively, you must assume that it is not. You must assume that information collected is shared with other persons or entities for commercial purposes. While this may or may not occur, you must assume that it is as you make your decision whether or not to view or interact with this website. This type of shared information may include your name, address, phone number, email address and buying habits, as well as other information. This information may be used for general commercial solicitation by this website or other persons it is sold to, rented to, or shared with.
