At The Posh Box Web Design Studio, your privacy is my ultimate priority. I am consistently committed to protecting your privacy at all times, in all situations. I will never collect and share names, email addresses, home addresses, phone numbers, or credit card information. Your name and email address information is used only to communicate with you and will be kept strictly confidential. Your information will NEVER be used, sold, rented, disclosed, loaned or traded.
Any information collected is for the sole purpose of The Posh Box design company and blog. Some information on how data is sometimes collected from you includes:
- Blog Posts: Your name and email address are collected on comments. The purpose of collecting this information is to display to other viewers to identify you as the person who left the comment. This allows for open dialogue and conversation between commenters. Your name and WordPress profile (if logged in) will be displayed, but your email address will not. The email is saved in case we need to contact you directly about the comment you left. You can choose to comment on the blog as a guest and only your name will be required. If you’d like your comment to be deleted, please contact me to request this action.
I am committed to ensuring that your information is secure. In order to prevent unauthorized access or disclosure, I have put in place suitable physical, electronic and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information that is collected.
Fair Information Practices
The Fair Information Practices Principles form the backbone of privacy law in the United States and the concepts they include have played a significant role in the development of data protection laws around the globe. Understanding the Fair Information Practice Principles and how they should be implemented is critical to comply with the various privacy laws that protect personal information.
In order to be in line with Fair Information Practices we will take the following responsive action, should a data breach occur:
- The Posh Box will notify the users via email within 7 business days
- The Posh Box also agrees to the individual redress principle, which requires that individuals have a right to pursue legally enforceable rights against data collectors and processors who fail to adhere to the law. This principle requires not only that individuals have enforceable rights against data users, but also that individuals have recourse to courts or a government agency to investigate and/or prosecute non-compliance by data processors.
