Privacy Policy

Thank You for Visiting StringSchool

Your privacy is very important and this policy explains how your personal information is going to be handled with care. Rest assured that your information when subscribing to our mailing list or enrolling in a class is protected.  We never, ever sell or share your personal information with outside parties.

By signing our mailing list, your name and email address will be added to our StringSchool database at Mailchimp.com.  You may unsubscribe at any time by clicking on the link at the foot of any email from StringSchool via Mailchimp.  Your contact information hosted at Mailchimp is never shared or sold.  When you enroll in a class, you will be added to our student body email list to keep you informed of events and other things related to your studies.  For more information on Mailchimp's privacy policy, please visit: http://Mailchimp.com/legal/privacy/

When enrolling in a class, or making any payment to StringSchool, your payment information will be gathered by Paypal.com, and some information is passed to us to facilitate the processing of enrollment.  This information includes your name, email address, class selected, and amount paid.  Occasionally a street address is also included.  In any case, your information will be held as confidential, and again, not shared or sold to any outside parties.  As Paypal is our credit card processor, StringSchool does not collect or store any credit card numbers.  For more information on Paypal's privacy policy, please visit https://www.paypal.com/webapps/mpp/ua/privacy-full

Occasionally current and past students will be informed of upcoming classes and events.  These types of emails may come from Mailchimp, or from StringSchool directly, in any case though, you may unsubscribe by clicking the unsubscribe link, or by replying to StringSchool with "unsubscribe" or "please take me off the list" or "your emails are making me very itchy" somewhere in the message.  Unsubscribe requests sent directly to StringSchool are processed by hand, the old fashioned way, and usually are completed in 1-2 business days (provided the barn doesn't need a fixin.)  Mailchimp unsubscribe links will handle unsubscribe requests in the new-fangled way, immediately.

StringSchool does not track your individual browsing; our web site is relatively small and blissfully incapable of anything truly spy-ish.  We do however have limited site usage data, figures such as: number of visits, times when the visits occur, and which search site may have delivered visitors to our web site.  Some usage charts our host provides are pie-like and colorful, and there are also many evolutionary blue bars, short to medium to long, to medium, to short again—though, in comparison, the blue bars are not quite as festive as the multicolored pie shapes.  Usage information is general, and not specific to any particular visitor, for instance: we do not know you, specifically, are reading this page.  At the end of the day, your representative will be a blue bar that is a bit longer for this time period...which, actually, makes the blue bars a lot more interesting.

Thank you for taking the time to read this policy.
