How data about each of us is used and stored is extremely important and Best Dog Learning and Stuff Ltd takes the responsibilities that go along with the data of our valued customers very seriously.
Words like data, user and cookies are not familiar to everybody - there is no reason why they should be familiar for most people so I'll explain them below so that you know what I'm going on about in this policy.
Data means all the information you send to us by signing up as a member.
Cookie means a small text file placed on your computer when you move around the website. This is what allows you to stay logged in between sessions. If you don't wish cookies to be placed on your computer, you have complete control of that through whichever browser you use and can change your settings to prevent them from being set up.
User just means you. The person sitting in front of the screen looking at the site.
I'm keen to limit the amount of data collected about the users of this site. If you choose to sign up for an account so that you can join the subscription community or buy a course, the site will collect a username and e-mail address. That's it. The site receives some additional data from PayPal as well. I use mailchimp for community and some course e-mails and for the mailing list. Best Dog Learning and Stuff, PayPal and mailchimp all store data securely and will not sell your data to third parties so you can be happy that any data you enter here is safe.
If you sign up for one of my short courses or the community I will add your email address to a mailchimp list dedicated to that course or the community. After the course is over or if you leave the community, I will remove you from that list. If you wish to stop receiving emails at any point, there is an unsubscribe link at the bottom of each email.
If you download one of my free guides, I may from time to time send you information about things I'm up to that may be of interest to you. If you don't wish to receive these emails, you can unsubscribe at any time.
Since you retain lifetime access to any courses you have bought, I will retain your user name and e-mail addresses on the Best Dog Learning and Stuff system. If you wish your data to be deleted, email me on firstname.lastname@example.org and I will delete all data held for you.
