Privacy Statement

 

The LC Studio is committed to open and honest communication with its readers. Below, you'll find an explanation of the various ways your personal information may be collected and used. If you disagree with any of the policies I have in place, you're welcome to contact me to suggest a change.

affiliate links

The LC Studio is an active member of the ShopStyle Collective affiliate program, which I use to provide product recommendations through embedded links and widgets in our blog posts. All recommendations are based on my personal preferences and experiences, and I do not recommend and/or review products solely for financial gain. However, I do collect commission from ShopStyle Collective for every product click-through that comes from out site.

unaffiliated links

My blog posts regularly include links to unaffiliated third-party websites. These links are used to (a) recommend related content, (b) cite the source(s) of specific information, or (c) suggest sources with additional information. I can't guarantee that every source website will maintain privacy policies similar to mine, and I'm not responsible for users' experiences once they leave my site. It's best to use your own discretion to when clicking these links.

email marketing

I use MailChimp to manage my newsletter e-mail subscriptions. Out of respect for our readers' privacy, I do not ask you to provide your first or last name in order to opt in to our e-mails. If you choose to subscribe to my weekly newsletter, you will be asked to provide your e-mail address. This information is stored within my account on the MailChimp website. You're welcome to opt-out of weekly e-mails at any time. If you choose to opt-out, your e-mail address will remain in my MailChimp account under our "Unsubscribed" section.

website analytics

In order to provide the best reader experience, I utilize a variety of user data collected by cookies. This data helps me understand what pages our readers visit most, what areas of the site need improvement, and how readers are finding my site. Data collected by cookies is kept anonymous, and I have no way of differentiating one unique reader from another. To prevent analytics programs from collecting any information, you can disable cookies by changing your browser settings.

Future Updates

As The LC Studio grows, this privacy policy may be subject to change. I encourage you to check back in on any privacy updates. You can find the most recent update timestamp at the bottom of the page.
