My name is Victoria Grantham. but you can call me Tors. If you need to get in touch, you can send snail mail to Unit 7769, PO Box 92, Cardiff, CF11 1NB, or drop me an email at yo@torsg.co

Your Privacy

I’m committed to maintaining the trust and confidence of the visitors to my website because without you my website would suck. Most importantly, I want you to know that I’m not in the business of selling, renting or trading email lists with other companies, businesses, or entrepreneurs for marketing purposes. That shit is just not on. But in case you don’t believe me, I’m going to provide lots of detailed information on when and why I collect your personal info, how I use it, the limited conditions under which I may disclose it to others and how I keep it secure. Buckle up, this is gonna get interesting.

Children & privacy

To access or use this website, you must be 18 years old or older. Children under the age of 18 are prohibited from hanging out here because some of the content is worded in ways that aren't appropriate to young minds (I swear, rather a lot).

Collection & use of personal info

Heads up, the data that I collect from you may be transferred to, and stored at, a destination outside the European Economic Area (“EEA”). By giving me your personal data, you’re agreeing to this transfer, storing or processing. Obviously, I’m going to take all steps reasonably necessary to ensure that your data is treated securely and in accordance with this privacy policy. 

Types of Data I collect

Like many other websites, I use cookies and log files to help make my website (torsg.co) as awesome as possible.

LOG FILES

Log files are simply files that log visitors to my site, which is pretty standard for hosting companies and are a part of hosting services’ analytics. They track things like IP address, browser type, Internet Service Provider (ISP), date/time stamp, referring/exit pages, and sometimes the number of clicks. I use this info to help me figure out demographics of who's looking at my stuff and how to make it better. IP addresses and other such information are not linked to any info that’s personally identifiable so by who I mean generically, not specifically. My website is hosted on Squarespace and, for clarity, I also use Google Analytics to track some of this information too. I don’t make, nor do I allow Google to make, any attempt to find out the identities of anyone visiting torsg.co. The only personalised information I collect is what you voluntarily tell me by signing up for my newsletter or buying something from me (see below for more info on that).

COOKIES

I also use cookies to store information about your preferences, to record user-specific information on which pages of the site you accesses or visits, to personalise or customise my webpage content based upon your browser type or other information that you send via your browser, and to market to you. For example, some blog posts or podcast episodes may be recommended to you based on what you’ve read on my site in the past, or you may see an ad for a new class I'm running. Cookies are a small text file placed on your computer by this website when you visit certain parts of it and/or when you use certain features of it. It is does not contain chocolate chips, you cannot eat it and there is no special hidden jar. Before I put any cookies on your computer, you'll be presented with a message bar requesting your consent. If you feel the need, you can turn off cookies by going into your browser settings.

MAILING LIST

Unsurprisingly, if you sign up for my newsletter I’m going to collect personal information (name and email address) in order to be able to actually deliver it. I use that information in a few ways: to tell you about the stuff you’ve asked me to tell you about, to contact you if I need more information from you for any reason, to check that you’re happy, or to let you know about a new thing (blog post, podcast episode, class, service or product) you might be interested in. Again, I don’t rent, sell or trade email lists with anyone else because that is not fun for you and I like having you around.

I use a third-party provider, ConvertKit, to deliver my newsletter. Sometimes I use Zapier and Google Drive to connect torsg.co to ConvertKit. I gather statistics around email opening and clicks using industry standard technologies to help me try to get better at emailing you with stuff you actually want to read. You can unsubscribe from my emails whenever you want by clicking on the unsubscribe link at the bottom of every email I send, or by dropping me an email to yo@torsg.co and asking me to do it for you.

purchases

When you buy stuff from me I may ask for more detailed personal information in addition to your name and email address, such as your legal business name and address, your date of birth, and payment information (such as credit card info). I use Stripe to process payments, sometimes through Squarespace, and sometimes through Dubsado, depending on what you're purchasing. I may also store some of your personal information in Asana as well as Dubsado, depending on whether you're an ongoing client or not. I don't keep your payment information, but the payment processors may keep encrypted records. I keep your data for as long as necessary to provide the product or service, and for no longer than one year after that. For more information on purchases, refunds and cancellations, see the Terms & Conditions.

Links to other websites

My website contains links to information on other websites. On websites I don't control, I cannot be responsible for the protection and privacy of any information that you provide while visiting those sites. Those sites aren't covered in this privacy policy, and if you have questions about how a site uses your information, you'll need to check that site's privacy statement.

Accessing your own Data

You have the right to ask for a copy of any of your personal data held by me (if, indeed, I have it) on payment of a small fee, which will not exceed £10 or a large chocolate cake.

Your consent

By using this website you're agreeing to this privacy policy and my collection of your data to be used in the ways outlined here. 

Just so you know, I may change this privacy policy from time to time and without notice, so make sure you check back occasionally. If I change my privacy policy, I'll publish those changes on this page. If you have any questions or concerns about my collection, use or disclosure of your personal information, please drop me an email to yo@torsg.co.

To make sure I'm always at the top of my game (aka compliant), I reserve my right to make any changes and updates to the privacy policy without giving you notice as and when I need to. I'll always make sure that the most up to date privacy policy is posted on my website, though, so you can check it out whenever you like - it'll be dated so you know when it was last changed.

Thanks for reading all the way to the end. Now, go do interesting stuff that isn't reading legal policies.
