What personal data we collect and why we collect it
When visitors leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.
If you upload images to the website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the website.
Certain visitors to Wendy Wood Design’s websites choose to interact with Wendy Wood Design in ways that require Wendy Wood Design to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Wendy Wood Design gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up at wendywood.com or wendywoodart.com to provide a username and email address. Those who engage in transactions with Wendy Wood Design are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, Wendy Wood Design collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with Wendy Wood Design. Wendy Wood Design 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.

Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information
Wendy Wood Design discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on Wendy Wood Design’s behalf or to provide services available at Wendy Wood Design’s websites, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using Wendy Wood Design’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Wendy Wood Design will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, Wendy Wood Design discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when Wendy Wood Design believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Wendy Wood Design, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of an Wendy Wood Design website and have supplied your email address, Wendy Wood Design may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what’s going on with Wendy Wood Design and our products. If you send us a request (for example via email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. Wendy Wood Design takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
