Site Owner and Data Controller: Emily Helms

Contact: hello {at} emilyhelms.com

Hello! I’m the designer behind a variety of services designed to allow creative professionals, to consultants, small business owners, and tech companies to take full advantage of the power and promise of the open web. My mission is to help you tell your story and reach your target audience in order to make a better living from your idea.

What this policy covers
This Privacy Policy applies to information that I collect about you when you use my websites (including emilyhelms.com and emilyhelms.myportfolio.com). Throughout this Privacy Policy I’ll refer to my websites and other products and services collectively as “Services.” Below I explain how I collect, use, and share information about you, along with the choices that you have with respect to that information.

Creative Commons Sharealike License
This Privacy Policy was created by Automattic under a Creative Commons Sharealike license. I’ve adapted for my website it per the terms of the license. You can grab a copy of this Privacy Policy and other legal documents on GitHub. You’re more than welcome to copy it, adapt it, and repurpose it for your own use. Just make sure to revise the language so that your policy reflects your actual practices. If you do use it, Automattic would appreciate a credit and link to Automattic somewhere on your site.

Information I collect
I only collect information about you if I have a reason to do so — for example, to provide my Services, to communicate with you, or to make my Services better.I collect this information from three sources: if and when you provide information to me, automatically through operating my Services, and from outside sources. Let’s go over the information that I collect.

Information you provide to me
It’s probably no surprise that I collect information that you provide to me directly. Here are some examples:Basic account information: I ask for basic information from you in order follow up with leads and to create client accounts. For example, I require individuals who sign up for a Discovery Session to provide an email address, name, and website, and that’s it. You may provide me with more information — like your phone number and other information you want to share — but I don’t require that information.

Payment and contact information
If you hire me to provide Services, I’ll collect information to process those payments and contact you. If you contract with me to provide Services, or if you buy something from me, such as a premium theme, you’ll provide additional personal and payment information like your name, credit card information, and contact information. This information is processed through a third-party provider (currently Dubsado) in accordance with their Terms of Service  and Privacy Policy. I also keep a record of the purchases you’ve made. You may also provide us with financial details to set up a payment, like the email address for your Stripe account.

Business profile
As mentioned above, some of the products I use to provide Services collect additional information from you as part of creating a user/client profile. For example, I may add you to my client relationship database (powered by Dubsado) using information you provide us including your name, your employer, your job title or role, your contact information, and your communications with us. If you schedule a meeting with me, I use information you provide Calendly like your timezone and location information, your company and team information, and your contact information, to set up and schedule that meeting.

Content information
You might provide me with information about you in draft and published content (a blog post or comment that includes biographic information about you, or any media or files you upload).

Credentials
As a client, you may provide me with credentials for your website (like SSH, FTP, and SFTP username and password). I will use these only to provide Services as agreed upon in our contract, and you may revoke my access at any time once Services are terminated.

Communications with me (hi there!)
You may also provide me with information when you respond to surveys, ask a support question, or post a question or comment on my social media channels. When you communicate with me via form, email, phone, social media comment, or otherwise, I store a copy of our communications (including any call recordings as permitted by applicable law).

Information I collect automatically
Log information: This site, emilyhelms.com, is hosted on Webflow. Webflow, a visual development platform and hosting solution provided by Webflow, Inc., may collect information that web browsers, mobile devices, and servers typically make available, including the browser type, IP address, unique device identifiers, language preference, referring site, the date and time of access, operating system, and mobile network information. Log information may be collected when you use or indicate interest in my Services — for example, when you schedule an appointment or fill out a contact form.

Usage information
This site, emilyhelms.com, collects information about your usage of my Services. For example, it collects information about what happens when you use this site (e.g., page views) along with information about your device (e.g., screen size, name of cellular network, and mobile device manufacturer). I use this information to, for example, provide my Services to you, get insights on how people use this site so I can make it better, and understand and make predictions about user retention.

Location information
This site may determine the approximate location of your device from your IP address. I may collect and use this information to, for example, calculate how many people visit the site from certain geographic regions.
