EmptyEasel Privacy Policy

Please read through EmptyEasel’s privacy policy below to learn how your personal privacy is protected when you visit this website:

1. We use third-party cookies from Google Analytics to watch for technical issues and improve things for anyone visiting EmptyEasel.com. For example, we keep track of which pages are most visited, which pages visitors arrive at, time of visits, etc. However, no personally identifiable information about you is collected or stored. You can opt out of Google Analytics tracking by using Google’s privacy plugin.

In a similar way, the Google Adsense ads on EmptyEasel make use of cookies too, so you may see some ads that relate to other webisites you’ve visited. If you’d like to opt out of Google’s ad targeting process you can do that at any time by visiting Google’s Advertising and Privacy Page.

2. Occasionally we offer coaching services, website makeovers, or other personal help for artists through a pop-up delivered by MailChimp. MailChimp uses a cookie to see if you’ve already declined those offers, so that you will not be bothered again. If you decide to contact us through one of those offers, only the information you choose to send us will stored in our MailChimp account. That information will not be shared with or used by anyone other than the EmptyEasel team, and we will only contact you about the offer you were interested in. If you would like your information permanently removed from our account in MailChimp, please contact us  and we will delete it promptly.

(Note: you can also delete cookies from your browser or device at any time, including cookies from other websites. For step-by-step instructions on how to do that, Indiana University has an excellent page of tutorials that will help.)

3. If you choose to share your name and email address with us via the contact formartwork submission form, or article submission form please know that your information will never be given or sold to a third party. We may use your email address to contact you, but that’s all. If at any time you’d like us to delete your address or previous emails, please let us know and we will do so.

4. If you choose to sign up for EmptyEasel’s free weekly newsletter, your email address will be recorded and kept secure in MailChimp, which we use to distribute the weekly email. Neither MailChimp nor EmptyEasel will give or sell your address to any third party.

Naturally, after signing up you’ll receive weekly emails from EmptyEasel, but you can unsubscribe from that service at any time by using the link at the bottom of the weekly newsletter, or by contacting us directly.

5. You’ll notice that throughout EmptyEasel there are links to other websites. Your privacy is assured here, but obviously we cannot guarantee what these other sites may do with your information when you leave EmptyEasel.com.

If you’d like to know anything else about our privacy polices, use of cookies, or anonymous data collection that’s not covered here, please contact us and we’ll answer promptly.
