Your Privacy

We are committed to protecting your privacy and providing you with a safe browsing experience with respect to this website (catherineschutten.com). This privacy policy explains our data collection and use practices for the information we collect.

We may collect and store both personally identifiable information that you provide directly to us (through form fills and opt-ins) and non-personally identifiable information through passive means (such as cookies, web beacons, and log files).

Information We Gather

Personal Information

Website Forms

When you request that we contact you for business purposes using a website contact form, we require your full name (first and last), affiliated company, email address, and telephone number. The information you provide in the form will be used to contact you regarding your request. Unless you opt-in to receiving other types of information (such as newsletters or content downloads), the communication you receive from us will be exclusively related to the website form request.

Public Domain

Should you complete a website form, we may also collect information regarding what you post to social media (such as public usernames, handles, and identifiers) as well as any information publicly disclosed with those public usernames, handles and identifiers.

Non-Personally Identifiable Information

We also gather certain information automatically as you browse our site. This may include your internet protocol (IP) address, internet service provider (ISP), device type, operating system and platform, browser type, referring URLs, average time spent site, pages and/or files viewed, information you searched for, access times, location, and other relevant statistics to analyze trends and administer our website.

How We Use the Information We Gather

We use the information we collect to provide our services, respond to you, operate our site, perform statistical, demographic and marketing analysis and manage our internal contact database.

If you voluntarily provide your contact information (name, email address, phone number, etc.) by filling out a form on the website, you are expressly providing consent to receive emails from us. We may use email to communicate with you, to send you information that you have requested or to send other relevant information about products or services you might be interested in. However, we will not give your email address to any other another party to promote their products or services directly to you. You may opt-out or remove your email address by following the instructions at the bottom of the emails you receive.
