Your privacy is important to me and is treated with great respect.  This Privacy Policy explains how any personal information about you is collected and used when you visit http://www.kimkluxenmeredith.com (the “Site”).

Before accessing the Site, please read this Privacy Policy carefully.  By accessing the Site, you indicate your acceptance and agreement with the Privacy Policy.


  1. Information You Provide

When you subscribe to receive updates on new blog posts and other news, the Site collects your name and your email address so that I can provide such updates to you.  To provide these updates on new Site content, I use MailChimp, which provides online tools that can be used to create, send, and manage emails. MailChimp may collect personal information, such as distribution lists which contain email addresses, and other information relating to those email addresses. For further information about the type of personal information MailChimp collects, refer to the MailChimp Privacy Policy (https://mailchimp.com/legal/privacy/).  You have the right to unsubscribe from Site updates at any time.

If you submit an inquiry through the Contact Form on the Site, I will collect your name, email address and the message you include. This information is held in my email account, which is password protected, and is collected so that I may respond to your inquiry.

Other ways data could be collected:

  • when you email me directly; and
  • when you comment on my blog posts.

If you leave a comment on a blog post you may opt-in to saving 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.

  1. Google Analytics

I use a tool called “Google Analytics” to collect information about use of the Site. Google Analytics collects information such as how often users visit this site, what pages they visit when they do so, and what other sites they used prior to coming to this site.  I use the information received from Google Analytics only to improve the Site. Google Analytics collects only the IP address assigned to you on the date you visit this site, rather than your name or other identifying information. I do not combine the information collected through the use of Google Analytics with personally identifiable information. Although Google Analytics plants a permanent cookie on your web browser to identify you as a unique user the next time you visit this site, the cookie cannot be used by anyone but Google. Google’s ability to use and share information collected by Google Analytics about your visits to this site is restricted by the Google Analytics Terms of Use and the Google Privacy Policy. You can prevent Google Analytics from recognizing you on return visits to this site by disabling cookies on your browser.

You can read more about how Google uses your Personal Information here: https://policies.google.com/privacy?hl=en.

You can also opt-out of Google Analytics here: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout.


As described above, your personal information may be shared with MailChimp to enable me to provide updates to those who subscribe for such notifications.

Under no circumstances is your personal information ever sold or rented to a third party.

You have the option to purchase some of my creative works through PayPal, a well-known third-party payment company.  If you choose to do so, your personal data may be shared with PayPal.  You can read more about PayPal’s privacy policy here: https://www.paypal.com/us/webapps/mpp/ua/privacy-full.


If you have subscribed for Site updates, your information will be kept until you notify me otherwise.

If you leave a comment on the Site, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely, unless you notify me otherwise.


You have the right to request a copy of the personal information I hold about you. If you would like a copy of the personal information I hold, please contact me at the email address listed below.

You also have the right to request that I erase any personal data I hold about you through your interaction with the Site. This does not include any data I am obligated to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.


This Site may contain links or references to other websites.  Please be aware that I do not control these linked websites and that this Privacy Policy does not apply to those websites.  I encourage you to read the privacy policy of every website you visit.


I reserve the right to modify this Privacy Policy at any time, so please review it frequently.  Changes and clarifications will take effect immediately upon their posting on the Site.  If I make material changes to this Policy, I will notify you here that it has been updated, so that you are aware of what information is collected, how it is used, and under what circumstances, if any, I use and/or disclose it.
