We only collect your personal information when you subscribe to our mailing list or if you email us directly. We do not sell or rent your information.

Safeguarding Personal Information

We have policies and procedures designed to protect your personal information from unauthorized use or disclosure. We have implemented physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards to maintain confidentiality and integrity of the personal information in our possession and to guard against unauthorized access. We continue to assess new technology as it becomes available and to upgrade our physical and electronic security systems as appropriate.

In accordance with the General Data Protection Regulation (and because we care about your privacy), if you add yourself to our email list, you can request corrections, unsubscribe, or ask to be removed at any time. We only use this list to send period emails about the firm and insights about being an entrepreneur. If you add yourself, you will stay on our list until you unsubscribe or request to be removed. This list is password protected, and the password is only known by Ruth Carter. You can email her with questions or complaints at Adding yourself to our list does not fulfill a statutory or contractual obligation.

Sharing Information With Others

We may share your information with a third party if we have a good-faith belief that sharing the information is necessary to comply with a law, regulation, or enforceable government request; to investigate potential violations or technical issues on our website or email list; or to protect against harm to us, our users, or our affiliates’ rights, property, safety, or to the public as permitted by law.

Your California Privacy Rights (As provided by California Civil Code Section 1798.83)

A California resident who has provided personal information to a business with whom he/she has established a business relationship for personal, family, or household purposes (“California customer”) is entitled to request information about whether the business has disclosed personal information to any third parties for the third parties’ direct marketing purposes. In general, if the business has made such a disclosure of personal information, upon receipt of a request by a California customer, the business is required to provide a list of all third parties to whom personal information was disclosed in the preceding calendar year, as well as a list of the categories of personal information that were disclosed. However, under the law, a business is not required to provide the above-described lists if the business adopts and discloses to the public (in its privacy policy) a policy of not disclosing customers’ personal information to third parties for their direct marketing purposes unless the customer first affirmatively agrees to the disclosure, as long as the business maintains and discloses this policy. Rather, the business may comply with the law by notifying the customer of his or her right to prevent disclosure of personal information and providing a cost free means to exercise that right.

Modifications to Our Privacy Policy

We reserve the right to amend this Privacy Policy or alter our privacy principles at its sole discretion without notice to you. Any alterations to this Privacy Policy or our privacy principles will be posted on our website in a timely manner.
