Privacy Policy

Privacy Policy – Effective May 25, 2018

Who we are

This privacy update discloses the privacy practices disclosed by Deena Pavinato and my website address, which is:

This update notifies you regarding information that is collected by this site unless otherwise noted. It will advise what information is collected, how you can correct it, how it is secured and how we will tell you when policy changes are made.

What personal data we collect and why we collect it


I am the sole owner of information you share but I will not share it or sell to others. The only way I can gather information is when you leave a comment, share information in email or opt in. I will only use your email or other information to contact you in direct response to a question or inquiry.

When you leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form. It may also collect your IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection. This is not shared publicly.  I love when you make comments and I encourage you to do so. But you do so voluntarily.  I keep those comments on my blog, unless you ask me to remove it, but I never take your email or contact name and add it to my mailing list.  You have to opt in to receive posts, emails, catalog mailings, etc.  I may also contact you in email regarding special classes, sales, etc but they come from my lists, not from blog comments.

Some of you have a picture or avatar when you post comments. After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.


If you upload images to the website, such as cards you have created, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the website.

Contact forms

The contact form you complete to opt in or contact me shares your contact information, usually email, with me. Please be aware that you can opt out at any time by clicking Unsubscribe in an email you may receive or by contacting the phone number listed on Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator site. 


If you leave a comment on our site you may opt-in to saving your name, email address and website in cookies. These are for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for one year.

If you have an account and you log in to this site, we will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.

When you log in, we will also set up several cookies to save your login information and your screen display choices. Login cookies last for two days, and screen options cookies last for a year. If you select “Remember Me”, your login will persist for two weeks. If you log out of your account, the login cookies will be removed.

Content from or used by other websites or blogs

I may also share a post or website within my blog posts. If you click on them or visit those sites, I am not responsible for the content or the privacy policy on those pages. Always be aware and concerned that links that you receive are safe. I will do my best to never share links that I do not trust.

How long we retain your data

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.

For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.

Where we send your data

Any comment on my blog may be checked through an automated spam detection service.

Why are we providing this Privacy Policy?

There are new privacy laws in Europe that apply to any European Union (EU). It is called GDPR, General Data Protection Regulation, and it applies to any website, blog or email that might be accessed by someone from a Europe Union. While it doesn’t apply to the US now, it is sound practice to have a good Privacy Policy that explains how I might use your information or the steps I take to protect your data.
