Google Analytics
When someone visits www.megan-art.com, I sometimes use a third party service, Google Analytics to collect standard internet log information and details of visitor behaviour patterns, to find out things such as how many people are visiting the site and various parts of the site. The way this information is processed does not identify any users. This is done to make sure the user experience is as good as it can be. I do not make or allow Google to make any attempt to find out the identities of people visiting our sites.

Mailing Lists
As part of the registeration process to receive my newsletter, details of periodic sales and other e-newsletters, I collect personal information.
I use that information to tell you about the things you’ve asked us to tell you about and to and to contact you if we need any further information from you. Under no circumstances do I sell, rent or exchange any of our email lists with other organisations.
I use a third party provider to deliver our newsletters and other emails (Mailchimp). I gather information from this provider around email open rates and clicks. I do this to make the email campaigns that we conduct as well received and useful as they can be and to make sure we are keeping you fully up to date.
