Privacy Policy

 Last Revised: May 15, 2018

Playground Parkbench, LLC, and its website, playgroundparkbench.com, (hereafter, collectively referred to as Playground Parkbench) takes your privacy very seriously.  We are committed to protecting the privacy rights of all users, while creating a safe and open forum for community members to express themselves in a positive, constructive manner. The policy below outlines how your personal information is collected and how it is used when you use our website.

By using Playground Parkbench, you agree to the terms of this policy when you use this website. This privacy policy may change from time to time. If any changes are made, then you will be notified by revising the date at the top of this policy.

How Information is Collected

Here is how your information is collected on Playground Parkbench:

  • if you subscribe to the newsletter
  • if you leave a comment on the blog
  • if you purchase a product via the Playground Parkbench store
  • through website cookies and log files
  • through Google Analytics

Newsletter

If you decide to join the newsletter via any of the many sign up forms located throughout this website, then your email address is required. We require your email address in order to send you the emails.

At the bottom of every email I send, you will find a link to unsubscribe. You may unsubscribe from the newsletter at any time. If you are having trouble unsubscribing or would like to be removed from the newsletter, then simply send me an email at [email protected] asking to be removed.

I currently use MailChimp as my email service provider (read their privacy policy here). Your data is collected and then passed to them. Tags are used within MailChimp to track your actions and page visits so that future emails can be better tailored to meet your needs.

Currently, I send only one email per week. However, I will occasionally send additional emails to you about products and other promotions that may be relevant to your interests.

Free printables are sent directly to your email with a download link via a third party application called WooCommerce (read their privacy policy here).

Your email and name are never sold or given away to a third party.

All emails you receive are CAN-SPAM compliant. At the bottom of every email, you will find information on how to contact the sender, as well as information on how to unsubscribe.

Blog Comments

Love something you read on my blog? Then leaving a comment is a great way to do that! I personally love hearing your feedback. If you choose to leave a comment on a blog post, then please be aware that the comment is then public and visible to anyone who reads the comment section. Your email address is never shared or disclosed, but your name and comment will be visible to others.

It is highly recommended that you avoid leaving detailed personal information in your comments.

I reserve the right to remove comments deemed as inappropriate, threatening, profane, or spammy without notice.

Store Purchases

Products in the Playground Parkbench are sold via WooCommerce. Your name, email address, state and country are required during the checkout process. This information is required in order to send you the purchased product and to determine whether or not EU VAT tax and/or state sales tax should be applied to your purchase.

The details you enter are stored by the third party applications. All payments are made through PayPal, which does not store your financial information once the transaction has been processed.

I also sell products via affiliate programs. Each program collects and retains their own data. I do not have access to the personal information that is collected by these affiliate programs. It is best to read their individual privacy policies for more information on how your data is collected and used.

Cookies

Cookies store user-specific information into a log. I use the following cookies on Playground Parkbench:

Google Analytics

Playground Parkbench uses Google Analytics to track website performance and user behavior. It provides information on pageviews, referral sources, and other valuable information that helps me adapt the content I write for this website. Google Analytics does capture anonymous data about location, age, gender, and interests, but I have no way to connect that information and specifically identify you. Google Analytics may also capture your IP address as you make your way around this website. User and event data is retained for 26 months and then is automatically deleted. You can read more about that here.

To support this website, third party advertisements are used. Playground Parkbench currently runs advertisements via Mediavine. They may use cookies or web beacons when they advertise here on Playground Parkbench in order to show you tailored ads to you. You can learn more about Mediavine here.

We do not intentionally gather information from visitors under the age of 18.  However, we do gather information from parents regarding their own children under the age of 13 that they provide.

If you are under 18 years old, you must first have parental permission before using our website or entering personal information.
