Kathy Szczesny. (“me”, “I”, or “my”) operates www.kathyszczesny.dev (the “Site”).
I strongly believe in both minimizing the Personal Information I collect and limiting its use and purpose to only that (1) for which I have been given permission, (2) as necessary to deliver the services, or (3) as I might be required or permitted for legal compliance or other lawful purposes.
I will only use the Personal Information I collect as reasonably necessary (a) to allow you to use and interact with the Site; (b) to provide the services to you as my customer; (c) to inform my continued development of the Site and the services; (d) to communicate with you from time to time in response to your requests for information or as may be relevant to your account with us; (e) to send marketing communications related to the services I provide; (f) as required by applicable law or legal requirements pertaining to records retention or for internal administrative purposes; or (g) as specifically authorized by you in writing.
From time to time, I may use your Personal Information to contact you by e-mail concerning my services. These communications are often intended to inform you of important information regarding your account, or about general services provided by me and/or its affiliates. If you do not want to receive email from me or my affiliates regarding new services, please click the “unsubscribe” link which is included at the bottom of any email you receive from us. However, in order to fulfill my service obligations to you, I will continue to send you emails regarding your account administration, as well as any necessary information, such as renewal notices and instructions. By providing me with your email address you consent to receiving communications from me electronically and all notices, disclosures and other communications that I provide to you electronically satisfy any legal requirement that such communications be in writing.
I cooperate with government and law enforcement officials and private parties to enforce and comply with the law. I will disclose any information about you to government or law enforcement officials or private parties as we, in my sole discretion, believe necessary or appropriate to respond to claims and legal process (such as subpoena requests), to protect my property and rights or the property and rights of a third party, to protect the safety of the public or any person, or to prevent or stop activity I consider to be illegal or unethical. When permitted, I will disclose to any customer that is the subject of a government investigation and any data requests pertaining to customers’ Personal Information and/or hosted data.
The security of your Personal Information is important to me, and I use generally accepted security measures to protect against the loss, misuse or alternation of the information under my control, but remember that no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure. I strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your Personal Information, but I cannot guarantee its absolute security.
If you have any questions about the security of your Personal Information, you can contact me at email@example.com. I may retain your information for as long as your account is active or as needed to provide you services, comply with my legal obligations, resolve disputes and enforce my agreements.
I may at times provide information about you to third parties to provide various services on my behalf, such as processing credit card payments, serving advertisements, performing analyses of my services, and customer relationship management. I will only share information about you that is necessary for the third party to provide the requested services. These companies are prohibited from retaining, sharing, storing or using your Personal Information for any secondary purposes.
Upon request I will provide you with information about whether I hold, or process on behalf of a third party, any of your Personal Information. You may access, correct, or request deletion of your personal information by contacting me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I will respond to your request for access or to modify or deactivate your information within thirty (30) days.
Note that when your Personal Information is reasonably necessary for me to provide you services, or for the operation of my network, the collection, use and disclosure of Personal Information is required and you cannot opt-out or delete the information without terminating your services. If your Personal Information is not reasonably necessary for the provisioning of the services or for the operation of my system, you will have the choice to withdraw your consent by opting out. For example, where you have provided express consent for the use of specific services for marketing purposes, you can opt-out later on as you like. Similarly, you can opt-out of your Personal Information being used for a variety of marketing communications by us, including telemarketing or addressed marketing mail, or commercial electronic messages like emails and SMS messages by modifying your subscription settings.
My services are not targeted to, intended to be consumed by or designed to entice individuals under the age of 18. If you know of or have reason to believe anyone under the age of 18 has provided me with any Personal Information, please contact me.
If you are a resident of the State of California, this Section addresses your rights and my obligations under the California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018 (“CCPA”). Terms used in this Section have the same meaning as provided in the CCPA.
My Site collects information that identifies, relates to, describes, references, is capable of being associated with, or could reasonably be linked, directly or indirectly, with a particular consumer or device (“personal information”). In particular, my Site has collected the following categories of personal information from visitors within the last 12 months:
Examples: A real name, IP address, email address, account name, or other similar identifiers.
Category: Personal information categories listed in the California Customer Records statute (Cal. Civ. Code § 1798.80(e)).
Examples: A name, address, telephone number, and (if you are applying for a job) your current employment and employment history.
Category: Internet or other similar network activity.
Examples: Browsing history, search history, information on a consumer’s interaction with a website, application, or advertisement.

Examples: Physical location or movements.
Personal information does not include:
I obtain the categories of personal information listed above from the following categories of sources:
I may use, or disclose the personal information I collect for one or more of the following business purposes:
I disclose all of the above categories of personal information to my third-party service providers subject, in each case, to a written contract that describes the business purpose of the disclosure and requires the recipient to both keep that personal information confidential and not use it for any purpose except performing the contract.
I do not and will not sell your personal information.
You have the right to request that I disclose certain information to you about my collection and use of your personal information over the past 12 months. Once I receive and confirm your verifiable consumer request, I will provide:
You have the right to request that I delete any of your personal information that I collected from you and retained, subject to certain exceptions. Once I receive and confirm your verifiable consumer request, I will delete (and direct my service providers to delete) your personal information from my records, unless an exception applies.
I may deny your deletion request if retaining the information is necessary for me or my service provider(s) to:
To exercise the access, data portability, and deletion rights described above, you can contact me as described below. Only you, or a person registered with the California Secretary of State that you authorize to act on your behalf, may make a verifiable consumer request related to your personal information. You may also make a verifiable consumer request on behalf of your minor child.
You may only make a verifiable consumer request for access or data portability twice within a 12-month period. The verifiable consumer request must:
I cannot respond to your request or provide you with personal information if I cannot verify your identity or authority to make the request and confirm the personal information relates to you. I will only use personal information provided in a verifiable consumer request to verify the requestor’s identity or authority to make the request.
I endeavor to respond to a verifiable consumer request within 45 days of its receipt. If I require more time, I will inform you of the reason and extension period in writing. I will deliver my written response by mail or electronically, at your option. Any disclosures I provide will only cover the 12-month period preceding my receipt of your request. The response I provide will also explain the reasons I cannot comply with a request, if applicable. For data portability requests, I will select a format to provide your personal information that is readily useable and should allow you to transmit the information from one entity to another entity without hindrance, specifically by electronic mail communication.
I do not charge a fee to process or respond to your verifiable consumer request unless it is excessive, repetitive, or manifestly unfounded. If I determine that the request warrants a fee, I will tell you why I made that decision and provide you with a cost estimate before completing your request.
I will not discriminate against you for exercising any of your CCPA rights. Unless permitted by the CCPA, I will not:
However, I may offer you certain financial incentives permitted by the CCPA that can result in different prices, rates, or quality levels. Any CCPA-permitted financial incentive I offer will reasonably relate to your personal information’s value and contain written terms that describe the program’s material aspects. Participation in a financial incentive program requires your prior opt in consent, which you may revoke at any time.
