Changes in this Privacy Statement 

If I decide to change my privacy policy, I will post those changes to this privacy statement, the homepage, and other places I deem appropriate so that you are aware of what information I collect, how I use it, and under what circumstances, if any, I disclose it.

I reserve the right to modify this privacy statement at any time, so please review it frequently.  If I make material changes to this policy, I will notify you here, by email, or by means of a notice on my homepage.

Registration Newsletter/ Frequency of Mailings
By registering to my newsletter, you are agreeing to receive my newsletters on a weekly basis. patriciamjackson.com has the right to change the frequency of delivery of its newsletters without notice.

Collection and Use of information
I respect your right to privacy. patriciamjackson.com received your information from your submission or through one of our affiliates. patriciamjackson.com is the owner of the information that you provided in any registration process. Your email address and any other identifying information that you give me will not be revealed to any third party, including any of the direct marketers who may use me to pass offers to you.

I use the information that you provided primarily to send you my newsletters. Moreover, the information subscribers give me is sometimes used to send prizes, verify legal age, and to send third-party mailings based on the interests that each individual subscriber has opted-in for. I may also collect and report to third parties (such as affiliates, content and service providers, and advertisers) aggregated information from my website. For example, I may aggregate and report to third parties that X people purchased a particular product during a month, or that Y% of visitors to this website are between the ages 25-34.

From time to time, I may provide you the opportunity to participate in contests or surveys on my website.  If you participate, I will request certain personally identifiable information from you. Participation in these surveys or contests is completely voluntary and you, therefore, have a choice whether or not to disclose this information.  The requested information typically includes contact information (such as name and shipping address), and demographic information (such as zip code).

As is true of most websites, I also gather certain information automatically and store it in log files.  This information includes internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, internet service provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, operating system, date/time stamp, and clickstream data. I use this information, which does not identify individual users, to analyze trends, to administer the site, to track users’ movements around the site and to gather demographic information about my user base as a whole. I do link this automatically-collected data to personally identifiable information like IP addresses and email addresses. However, this is solely for internal uses and used to verify appropriate registration methods.

Finally, patriciamjackson.com may disclose subscriber information in response to subpoenas, court orders, and other legal processes.

Children
I am committed to the safety of children and do not intend to collect personally identifiable information from children under age 18. If you are under age 18, please ask your parent for permission before sending any information to my site or anyone else online. Have your parent contact me as indicated below in order to provide me with prior written consent. I will not intentionally use personal information from or send marketing communications to children under age 13 without prior parental consent.
