Our Commitment To Privacy:

Your privacy is important to us. To better protect your privacy we provide this notice explaining our online information practices and the choices you can make about the way your information is collected and used. To make this notice easy to find, we make it available on our homepage and at every point where personally identifiable information may be requested.

The Information We Collect:

This notice applies to all information collected or submitted on the website. On some pages, you can click links or advertisements order products from outside vendors, make requests or comments, and register to receive materials. The types of personal information collected at these pages are:

    Email address
    Age verification
    Other optional information used for improving workshops and tailoring your newsletter announcements.

If you choose to engage in a professional relationship with Dr. Ruth Neustifter in which she bills you for services provided you will receive invoices from Google Check Out.  Google Check Out maintains its own privacy policies.  At no time is your financial information available to Dr. Ruth Neustifter when using this service.

Should you win a prize or contest for an item that is emailed or shipped by this site, your mailing or email address and possible age verification may be required.

The Way We Use Information:

We use the information you provide about yourself only to respond to your comments, provide you with email announcements you have signed up for, or send contest winnings. We do not share this information with outside parties except to the extent necessary to complete that request.

We use return email addresses to answer the email we receive. Such addresses are not used for any other purpose and are not shared with outside parties.  Any information you leave on the blog is open to the public and should be considered public information.

You can register with our website if you would like to receive our updates on our new events, projects and services. Information you submit on our website will not be used for this purpose unless you fill out the registration form.

We use non-identifying and aggregate information to better design our website and to share with advertisers. For example, we may tell an advertiser that X number of individuals visited a certain area on our website, or that Y number of men and Z number of women filled out our registration form, but we would not disclose anything that could be used to identify those individuals.

Finally, we never use or share the personally identifiable information provided to us online in ways unrelated to the ones described above without also providing you an opportunity to opt-out or otherwise prohibit such unrelated uses.

Our Commitment To Data Security:

To prevent unauthorized access, maintain data accuracy, and ensure the correct use of information, we have put in place appropriate physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect online.  We have done this by working with established outside websites for billing and newsletter generation.

Our Commitment To Children’s Privacy:

Protecting the privacy of the very young is especially important. For that reason, we never collect or maintain information at our website from those we actually know are under 21, and no part of our website is structured to attract anyone under 21.

How You Can Access Or Correct Your Information:

You can access all your personally identifiable information that we collect online and maintain by clicking the subscription link at the bottom of any newsletter. We use this procedure to better safeguard your information.  Information left by you on the blog is considered public and cannot be removed or adjusted.

How To Contact Us:

Should you have other questions or concerns about these privacy policies, please call us at (301) 979-9910 or send us an email at .
