NaturalSkinCareJunkie.com may use your personal account information to operate, maintain, customize and personalize your experience with the Website. Following is more information about this.
I never collect personal information without your knowledge. If I ask for information like your name or e-mail address it’s because you have volunteered to give it to me. For example, if you sign up for my online newsletter (i.e. The Holistic Path To Natural Skin Care), participate in a competition, purchase a product, or get in touch through my ‘contact’ page.
When joining an email list on NaturalSkinCareJunkie.com (like the Holistic Path To Natural Skin Care) you will always be given the opportunity to opt-out of emails if you decide that you don’t want to hear from me any more.
If you purchase a product I will use the information to send you your product, and may send a few additional emails to let you know it’s been shipped, let you know if it goes on sale, or share promotions about other related products. Again, you can opt-out of these at any time and in any email I send you.
I have an email list for customers and Holistic Path subscribers, so if you are on both lists you may have to unsubscribe twice. This is common practice for web-based businesses.
I hate spam and I hate excessive emails. I always try to balance the need to give you what you want and go above and beyond with additional information or offers. If you feel my balance is off or you aren’t getting what you expected I want to hear about it! You can also unsubscribe at any time!
The services I use to collect your email address is Mailchimp combined with Gravity Forms. These are both business services that make it possible for me to collect your email address on NaturalSkinCareJunkie.com.
Gravity Forms creates the forms. Your name, your email, and the page or form that you signed up for the Holistic Path are included. This allows me to see which forms people like, and whether or not I should move or delete them all-together.
Mailchimp is a secure email service that actually helps reduce spam. It knows when its users send spam and will delete their accounts. It also makes it possible for me to send you the charts which are part of Holistic Path To Natural Skin Care right away. You get them a lot more quickly because of this. I can also see who hasn’t opened any emails in x-months, and then delete them from the list (as this is a sign of non-interest). I review the list of people who haven’t opened their emails approximately every 6 months, and automatically delete them.

I use WooCommerce as the E-Commerce/shopping cart platform on NaturalSkinCareJunkie.com.
When sales are made I have access to the purchasers name, email address, along with what was purchased and when. If you purchase a product that needs to be mailed to a physical address, it will also include your mailing address. This allows me to mail your product to you. I will keep this information on file for approximately 3 years. So, if you haven’t purchased anything within 3 years of your first purchase I will delete your information. I have chosen to keep it for this period of time just in case you need information about a purchase. This information is private and not shared with anyone else, but if you want me to delete it please just send me a message. You are also welcome to edit this information in the “My Account” section.
For tax purposes, I will keep sales information, excluding your name and email address for up to 7 years. This is a requirement by law. But since they don’t need to know who purchased or

Sharing Other Company Products
If I find a product I LOVE, and I think will help you make amazing skin care products I will sometimes share this with you in or as part of a blog post or email. Sometimes these will be affiliate products (where I receive a commission when you purchase). In these instances, you will purchase the product from them. Currently I share some great products for sale on Amazon as well as Plant Therapy. But as my experience to new products grows, this may change. Other times, I won’t have any affiliate arrangement with a product I promote. Sharing the best with you, always comes first. Affiliate commission is a bonus, but not a necessity to sharing great products!
