Privacy Policy

Your privacy is critically important to us. At Suite 102 Salon and Spa we have a few fundamental principles:

We don’t ask you for personal information unless we truly need it. (We can’t stand services that ask you for things like your gender or income level for no apparent reason.)

We don’t share your personal information with anyone except to comply with the law, develop our products, or protect our rights.

We don’t store personal information on our servers unless required for the on-going operation of one of our services. In our blogging products, we aim to make it as simple as possible for you to control what’s visible to the public, seen by search engines, kept private, and permanently deleted.

Below is our privacy policy which incorporates these goals:

(Note, we’ve decided to make this privacy policy available under a Creative Commons Share alike license, which means you’re more than welcome to steal it and re-purpose it for your own use, just make sure to replace references to us with ones to you, and if you want we’d appreciate a link to Suite 102 Salon and Spa.com somewhere on your site. We spent a lot of money and time on the below, and other people shouldn’t need to do the same.)

Website Visitors

Like most website operators, Suite 102 Salon and Spa collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. Suite 102 Salon and Spa’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Suite 102 Salon and Spa’s visitors use its website. From time to time, Suite 102 Salon and Spa may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.

Suite 102 Salon and Spa also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on WordPress.com blogs. Suite 102 Salon and Spa only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below, except that blog commenter IP addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the blog where the comment was left.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

The amount and type of information that Suite 102 Salon and Spa gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up for a blog at WordPress.com to provide a username and email address. Those who engage in transactions with Suite 102 Salon and Spa, for example – are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, Suite 102 Salon and Spa collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with Suite 102 Salon and Spa. Suite 102 Salon and Spa does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.
