Your privacy is very important to me. At The Elysian Styling Company, I have a few fundamental principles. I am:
Thoughtful about the personal information I ask you to provide. And the personal information that I collect about you through the use of my services.
Store personal information for only as long as I have a reason to keep it.
Help protect you from overreaching government demands for your personal information.
Aim for full transparency on how I gather, use, and share your personal information.

My website – theelysianstylingcompany.co.uk;
My other products, services, and features that are available on my website
Information I Collect
I only collect information about you if we have a reason to do so. For example, to provide our Services, to communicate with you, or to make our Services better. I collect information in three ways:
1) when you provide information to me
2) through operating my Services, and
Let’s go over the information that I collect.
Information You Provide to Me
It will be no surprise that I collect information that you provide to me. The amount and type of information depends on the context and how I use the information. Here are some examples:
Basic Account Information:
I ask for basic information from you to set up your account. For example, I need individuals who sign up for a course, to provide an email address and username. And that’s it. You may provide me with more information. Like your address and other information you want to share. But I don’t need that information to create a course account.
Billing and Contact Information:
If you buy something from me, you will need to provide more personal and payment information. Such as your name, credit card information, and contact information.
Communications with Me (Hi There!):
When you communicate with me via form, email, phone or otherwise, we store a copy of our communications.
Information I Collect Automatically
I also collect some information automatically:
I collect information that web browsers, mobile devices, and servers typically make available. Such as the browser type, IP address, language preference and the date and time of access. I collect log information when you use our Services.
I collect information about your usage of our Services. For example, I collect information about the actions that site users take. In other words, who did what, when and to what thing on a site. I also collect information about what happens when you use my Services. For example, page views of other parts of our Services. Along with information about your device. I use this information, for example, to provide my Services to you. As well as get insights on how people use my Services, so I can make my Services better.
I may determine the approximate location of your device from your IP address. I use this information, for example, to see how many people visit my Services from certain parts of the world.
