Privacy Policy

I Value Your Privacy

When you sign up for my newsletter or purchase my products and services, I want to make sure your personal information is handled securely and in the way you authorize it to be used. By using my website, signing up for my newsletter, and/or purchasing my products and services, you are agreeing to this privacy policy. I encourage you to read this privacy policy to learn what information I collect and how it is used. If you have any questions not answered by this policy, please contact me.

This privacy policy discloses the privacy practices for Melanie Rummel and This privacy policy applies solely to information collected by this website.

Information Collection

Melanie Rummel is the sole owner of the information collected on this site. I have access to information that you voluntarily give me via email, the contact form on my website, or other direct contact from you. I do not sell or rent this information to anyone. I use your information to respond to you regarding the reason you contacted me. I do not share your information with any third party outside of my business, other than as necessary to fulfill your request.


I want to make sure your personal information is secure, so when I collect personal information with your consent, that information is encrypted and transmitted in a secure way. You can verify this by looking for a lock icon in the address bar and looking for “https” at the beginning of the address of any webpage asking for personal information.


When you sign up for my newsletter, you give me permission to use your name and email address for sending periodic newsletters. You can unsubscribe at any time by following the unsubscribe link at the bottom of every newsletter or by contacting me directly. You can also make any changes to your personal information by following the “update your preferences” link at the bottom of each newsletter. I use MailChimp to send newsletters and store subscriber information, and MailChimp is GDPR compliant. You can read MailChimp’s privacy policy.

Purchasing Products and Services

When you purchase a product or service, I keep a record of your name, email, and the product/service you purchased. This allows me to contact you about your product or service if needed. For example, if you schedule a reading with me, I will send you an email once I’ve completed your reading. I also use purchase information to determine how popular a product/service is, to help me determine what to offer in the future, and for tax purposes. If I make a change or update to a product you have purchased, I will notify you unless you ask me not to.

I use SendOwl to sell my products, which is a GDPR compliant website. You can read the SendOwl Privacy Policy. Your purchase history and personal information can be deleted from SendOwl by contacting SendOwl directly.

I use paypal for payment transactions, so I never have access to your credit card information. Paypal is GDPR compliant. You can read the PayPal Privacy Policy. You can make changes to your Paypal account and purchase history by contacting PayPal directly.

Website Analytics

To improve your experience on this website, I may use “cookies”. Cookies are an industry standard and most major websites use them. A cookie is a small piece of data sent from a website and stored by your web browser while you are browsing to help remember your preferences. You may refuse the use of cookies by selecting the appropriate settings on your browser, but it may mean you are not able to access the full functionality of this website.

My website uses Google Analytics, a service that transmits website traffic data to Google servers in the United States. Google Analytics does not identify individual users or associate your IP address with any other data held by Google. I use reports provided by Google Analytics to help me understand website traffic, webpage usage, the progress I’m making spreading the word about my website, and which topics are most popular so I can create more great content. You can read the Google Analytics Privacy Policy.

Children’s Privacy

My service does not address anyone under the age of 18 (“Children”). I do not knowingly collect personally identifiable information from anyone under the age of 18. If you are a parent or guardian and you are aware that your child has provided me with personal data, please contact me. If I become aware that I have collected personal data from children without verification of parental consent, I take steps to remove that information from my computer and accounts.

Your Access to and Control Over Information

You may opt out of any future contact from me at any time. You can do the following at any time by contacting me via the contact form on my website:

See what data I have about you, if any.
Change/correct any data I have about you.
Have me delete any data I have about you.
Express any concern you have about my use of your data.
