I (Sandra Trainor) wish to provide you (the user of this website) with the below policies and disclosures, applied to the use of this website and when engaging in service with me. Keep reading, because it’s all explained below.
The policies in this section are in regard to privacy, and are for your understanding. They are to help you feel comfortable about sharing your information with me. It’s because I care about your privacy that I am taking the time to explain the types of information which may be received and collected by this website and how it is used.
I do not use third-party services in this website to display advertising. I do, however, use Google Analytics to collect reports that allow me to analyze the browsing and website usage of those who visit this website. These reports do not reveal to me your personal information, but are used to inform me about the website activity of users, so to provide you with the information that interests you the most.
If you have provided me with your information, I will not give, lend, or sell your information to any third party, such as another company, individual, or entity unless such information is needed to accomplish requested services. I may need to provide your information to a third party for mailing out your purchase, for example, or when including you in subscriptions.
When you subscribe to updates, a secure system collects your name and email address, which is then used by me to send replies and provide subscribers with information related to this website.
I do not share the personal information that you provide me with when subscribing to receive my updates, and I do not store any information about your visit to this website, other than to analyze and optimize your content for a better reading experience.
I do not give third-parties your email address, but subscribers may receive advertisements. If you wish to be removed from receiving such communications, just follow the unsubscribe instructions included in the received email.
You are free to turn off cookies by changing the specified settings in your browser. Instructions for managing or disabling cookies can be found on the website for your specific browser.
The policies in this section are in regard to disclosures, and are for your understanding. They are here because I want you to know about me and the desires and intentions that I have for this website. These disclosure policies also include terms and conditions for the use of this website. They are here so that you can feel confident in your decision to use this website, engage in the services that I proved, or purchase the products that I promote.
I decided to create this website in order to share with you information about the services and products that I offer, and to generate an income from these services and products. For example, I get payment from an individual or business for the creation of customized (commissioned) artwork, and when someone purchases my existing artwork.
In October of 2009, the Federal Trade Commission made revisions to the guidance it gives concerning the use of endorsements and testimonials in advertising. The revised FTC Ruling says that testimonial endorsements must disclose the material connections that they share with the seller of the products or services, and clearly disclose the results that consumers can expect. Because I agree with the revisions made to the FTC Ruling, I wish to indicate to you that any gifts received in association with an endorsement in this website were not paid for, and I never make false, deceptive, or misleading claims to the best of my understanding, even if I receive gifts from the companies whose products I endorse.
You are another reason for my wanting to make this website. I hope that you find the images that I display pleasing, the information that I share helpful, and the services and products that I offer useful and satisfying. Not all services and products are refundable. It is solely up to me to decide which ones are refundable and which ones are not. For example, most completed services are not refundable, since payment for such services are partially based on an hourly rate that is agreed upon in advance. Original artwork and prints are usually refundable, but a successful digital download is not refundable, because it can be copied for use before returning. If you are unsatisfied, contact me within 30 days of your purchase to discuss a refund.
This website is managed from within the State of Florida, United States of America. I reserve the right to deny my services and products. For example, I can choose to provided services within the United States only, despite world wide access to its website, and deny the mailing of products based on geographical location.
I reserve the right to deny my services to any business, individual, or entity for any reason and without explanation. For example, I can deny my services to those wanting to share pornographic material, or promote any beliefs that I deem disturbing or obscene.
I reserve the right to not respond to being contacted by e-mail, phone, text message, or by any other means of communication for any reason and without explanation.
I reserves the right to discontinue special offers and promotions at any given time and without notice.
When contacting me, you are solely responsible for the content of any information that you submit. I have no obligation to respond to being contacted.

You also agree to not submit any unlawful, abusive, or obscene material, nor any plagiaristic material.
There is no guarantee that images or any other materials that you wish to contribute for use in a commissioned project will be safe. I am not responsible for the misuse of any materials that may occur in association with the services that I offer. For example, it is possible for materials to become lost or damaged when mailed.
