Your privacy is important to you, and it’s important to me, too. The following is a summary of what information is collected from you and how it is used.

Pattern Purchases (the shopping cart) and Payment Processing
I sell patterns on Ravelry, and their external shopping cart software also is implemented on this site. So I receive a copy of each download email that gets sent out after purchase – these emails are sent automatically by Ravelry and it is done so that sellers have proof of delivery. Ravelry stores your email address, which may be linked to your Ravelry account if you are a member, and I have access to this sales information.
When a pattern purchase is made from this site, I receive notification of the purchase via an additional, automatic email from Paypal. When I download my monthly sales data from PayPal for accounting, I do not download or store lists with sensitive data – I simply store the sales figures.
I only collect the transaction based data (i.e., name, address, and email address) necessary to complete your order. I never share these emails.
Blog Comments and Subscriptions
I receive an email whenever a comment is left on my site or whenever a new reader subscribes to my blog. I do not store these emails after responding to them, but WordPress stores them and the data that you provide when you subscribe (i.e your email address), so I have access to it. WordPress also shares with me basic analytical information to give me better insight about the usage of my site, such as page views, popular pages and which websites (i.e., which URLs) are sending viewers to my site. I do not receive personal information and I never share these emails.
When you contact me via this site, you need to give your name and email address so that I can respond. Once I have responded to your request, I delete the email unless there is a need to retain the email (i.e., an ongoing wholesale relationship). I never share these emails.
