Privacy Policy

Hello and welcome!

This page informs you of the policies regarding the collection, use, and disclosure of personal data and the choices you have associated with that data when you use Desert Rain (the “Service”) located at https://desertraingleniece.com.

I care about your privacy and the personal information you provide me at Desert Rain.

I only use your data for lawful purposes and for the efficient running of this Service. By using the Service, you agree to the collection and use of information in accordance with this policy. Unless otherwise defined in this Privacy Policy, terms used in this Privacy Policy have the same meanings as in the Terms and Conditions page.

Information Collection And Use

Desert Rain collects several different types of information for various purposes to provide and improve my Service to you.

Types of Data Collected

Personal Data and How Long it is Retained

While using this Service, I may ask you to provide certain personally identifiable information that can be used to contact or identify you (“Personal Data”). Personally identifiable information may include, but is not limited to:

  • Email address
  • First name and last name
  • Address, State, Province, ZIP/Postal code, City
  • Cookies and Usage Data

When visitors leave comments on this Service, I collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.

An anonymized string created from your email address (also called a hash) may be provided to the Gravatar service to see if you are using it. The Gravatar service privacy policy is available here: https://automattic.com/privacy/. After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.

If you leave a comment, you may opt-in to save your name, email address and website in cookies. These are for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for one year.

Also if you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so I can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.

If you have an account and you log in to this Service, I will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.

When you log in, I will also set up several cookies to save your login information and your screen display choices. Login cookies last for two days, and screen options cookies last for a year. If you select “Remember Me”, your login will persist for two weeks. If you log out of your account, the login cookies will be removed.

For users that register for an account on this website (if any), I also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.

Usage Data

I may also collect information on how the Service is accessed and used (“Usage Data”). This Usage Data may include information such as your computer’s Internet Protocol address (e.g. IP address), browser type, browser version, the pages of the Service that you visit, the time and date of your visit, the time spent on those pages, unique device identifiers and other diagnostic data.

Desert Rain uses WooCommerce to collect information about you during the checkout process on the store.

While you visit my store, WooCommerce tracks:

  • Products you’ve viewed: they’ll use this to, for example, show you products you’ve recently viewed
  • Location, IP address and browser type: they’ll use this for purposes like estimating taxes and shipping
  • Shipping address: they’ll ask you to enter this so they can, for instance, estimate shipping before you place an order, and send you the order!

WooCommerce also use cookies to keep track of cart contents while you’re browsing the store.

When you purchase from me, I’ll ask you to provide information including your name, billing address, shipping address, email address, phone number, credit card/payment details and optional account information like username and password. I’ll use this information for purposes, such as, to:

  • Send you information about your account and order
  • Respond to your requests, including refunds and complaints
  • Process payments and prevent fraud
  • Set up your account for the store
  • Comply with any legal obligations I have, such as calculating taxes
  • Improve the store offerings
  • Send you marketing messages, if you choose to receive them

If you create an account, I will store your name, address, and email which will be used to populate the checkout for future orders.

I will generally store information about you for as long as I need the information for the purposes for which I collect and use it, and I am not legally required to continue to keep it. For example, I will store order information for 2 years for tax and accounting purposes. This includes your name, email address and billing and shipping addresses.

I will also store comments or reviews, if you choose to leave them.
