Basically, I run as clean an operation as possible and never sell your info to anybody.
Who We Are
Live ʻUkulele (https://liveukulele.com/) is an ʻukulele learning website run by Brad Bordessa.
You can contact us at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
What Personal Data We Collect and Why
Live ʻUkulele collects and maintains a list of email addresses. We collect this information on a voluntary basis through newsletter signup forms for the purpose of sending update emails to subscribers. This information is only shared with third-party newsletter services, such as Mailerlite, which is used to manage subscriptions and send emails to the list. To unsubscribe, subscribers can click on the link in the email updates or email the webmaster to be removed from the list.
If you make a purchase from Live ʻUkulele, your payment info will be handled by third party services – either Stripe or Paypal. Your email address and purchase details (minus sensitive payment information) will then be forwarded to Sendowl, a third party content delivery system in charge of fulfilling downloads and orders. Order history is kept indefinitely on these platforms for record keeping purposes and to allow for refunds and other issues with payment. Your email may be automatically added to the newsletter list after an order.
If you submit a testimonial of a product, your name, location, and review might be publicly displayed for marketing purposes on Live ʻUkulele or relevant outlets. Your email is kept only for admin purposes and will not be shared.
If you use the contact form to contact us, your information will be handled by a website plugin and forwarded to the webmaster. None of this information is shared or used for marketing purposes.
Mediavine Programmatic Advertising
The Website uses Mediavine to manage all third-party advertising on the Website. Mediavine serves content and advertisements when you visit the Website, which may use first and third-party cookies. A cookie is a small text file which is sent to your computer or mobile device (referred to in this policy as a “device”) by the web server so that a website can remember some information about your browsing activity on the Website. The cookie may collect information relating to your use of the Website, information about your device such as the device’s IP address and browser type, demographic data and, if you arrived at the Website via a link from a third-party site, the URL of the linking page.
First party cookies are created by the website that you are visiting. A third-party cookie is frequently used in behavioral advertising and analytics and is created by a domain other than the website you are visiting. Third-party cookies, tags, pixels, beacons and other similar technologies (collectively, “Tags”) may be placed on the Website to monitor interaction with advertising content and to target and optimize advertising. Each internet browser has functionality so that you can block both first and third-party cookies and clear your browser’s cache. The “help” feature of the menu bar on most browsers will tell you how to stop accepting new cookies, how to receive notification of new cookies, how to disable existing cookies and how to clear your browser’s cache. For more information about cookies and how to disable them, you can consult the information at www.allaboutcookies.org/manage-cookies/.
Without cookies you may not be able to take full advantage of the Website content and features. Please note that rejecting cookies does not mean that you will no longer see ads when you visit our Site.
The Website may collect IP addresses and location information to serve personalized ads and pass it to Mediavine.

Mediavine partners with the following data processors:
A cookie is a tiny little file that most websites automatically add to your browser for tracking purposes. It allows sites to remember that you’re logged in (Facebook), that you’re a returning visitor (links you’ve clicked), or to display targeted ads (Google).
When you visit Live ʻUkulele, your browser will be given several cookies for web analytics tracking, remembering what’s in your shopping cart, browser caching, and the contact form.
In addition, the ad service that pays the bills around here also uses multiple cookies for tracking your interests across the whole web. These are what allow websites to display ads relevant to your previous browsing history.
For instance, my friend borrowed my laptop the other day to do some shopping for yoga supplies. Later in the day – on a different computer – all the ads I saw were selling yoga stuff. Google had marked my IP address as a likely yoga customer.
Sad, but true.
Embeded 3rd Party Content
In order to make this website the best it can be, we use analytics tracking to collect traffic data on our users. This allows us to see which pages are most popular or which links people are clicking on.
Who We Share Your Data With
How Long We Retain Your Data
Since we only collect the most bare-bones data on a voluntary basis (newsletter subscription, orders), we retain it indefinitely for recordkeeping purposes. If at any time you’d like to have your information removed, just send an email to the webmaster. This does not include information required for administration. Anonymous analytics tracking information is stored indefinitely.
