About Wonders of Curiosity

Founded in 2022 and based in America, Wonders of Curiosity is an independently operated business run by me, Amanda Zepp. This website shares education resources for homeschool parents.

 

Privacy Policy

Your privacy is important. To better protect it, I provide this notice explaining my online information practices. This privacy policy governs your use of wondersofcuriosity.com and all its subdomains including any content, functionality and services offered on or through wondersofcuriosity.com.

I reserve the right to change this policy at any time. Changes will be posted to this page. You are responsible for periodically visiting this privacy policy to check for changes.

 

Parental Consent

If you are under 16 years old, you should not be using this website, or subscribing to the newsletters without parental permission.

 

Your Consent

Please read this privacy policy carefully. By using the website, you accept and agree to be bound by this privacy policy. If you do not wish to agree, you must not access or use this website.

 

How We Protect Your Information

Wonders of Curiosity uses standard security protocols and works only with reputable third-party vendors.

 

How Information Is Collected

  • If you subscribe to the Wonders of Curiosity newsletter
  • If you contact us through a contact form on our website
  • If you purchase a product through our website and/or it’s subdomains 
  • Through website cookies and log files
  • Through Google Analytics

I use the information you provide to deliver the requested product and/or service, to improve our overall performance, and to provide you with offers, promotions, and information.

 

Subscriber Newsletter

If you join the Wonders of Curiosity newsletter, you will be required to give your first name and email address. I require your email address to send you the emails, and I require a first name so that the emails will be more personal.

Your data is collected and then passed on to ActiveCampaign, my email service provider. You can read their privacy policy here. I sometimes use tags within ActiveCampaign to track your actions and page visits so that future emails can better meet your needs.

I usually send one email per week except when you first join and when we have a special promotion going. During those special times, I may send up to one email per day for a week. 

Your email and name are never sold, rented, leased, or given away to a third party.

At the bottom of each newsletter you will find information about how to contact the sender, as well as a link to unsubscribe. You may unsubscribe at any time.

 

Shop Purchases

Products in my shop are sold through AccessAlly and payments are processed through Stripe or Paypal. You can click on the names of those third party sites to see their individual privacy policies. Your name, email address, mailing address, and credit card information are required during the checkout process.

Information about your purchase is stored indefinitely. This way I can resend the files any time you request them. Only your name, email address and physical address (if you include this) is stored on my site.

You may also purchase my products on Teachers Pay Teachers. Read their privacy policy here.

I also sell other bloggers’ products via affiliate programs. Each program collects and retains its own data. I do not have access to the personal information that is collected by these affiliate programs.

It provides information on page views, referral sources (such as another website or a social media site), your device (i.e. mobile or desktop), browsing actions, and other information that helps me adapt the content I write for this site.

Google Analytics collects anonymous information about your location, age, gender, IP address, and interests. I have no way to connect that information to you personally. Read about Google Analytics’ data retention policy here.
