Imaike Studio Privacy Policy 

Imaike Studio believes that privacy is important to the success and use of the Internet. This statement sets forth Imaike Studio’s policy and describes the practices that we will follow with respect to the privacy of the information of users of this site. Should you have any questions about this policy or our practices, please send us an email or call us (found at the bottom of this page).

What Personal Information We Collect

Imaike Studio collects your personal information online when you voluntarily provide it to us by either making a booking or by entering your personal information on the website. If you choose to make a booking, an account will be automatically created for you and stored on the website. Upon making an account, we ask you to provide limited personal information, such as your name, telephone number, and email address. At the time of registration, a password will be generated and sent automatically to the email address you provided. We do not have access to your password information. That being said, we have no idea how your password is stored or retrieved. That’s the magic of the website. We believe that this is done in a secure way, but, as always, there probably is a risk of this information getting hacked somehow. Although I doubt anyone would be interested in such mundane information used to book a studio.

How to Review and Change Your Personal Information

If you make a booking on Imaike Studio, and thereby creating an account, you may review and change your personal information by logging in to your account on the My Bookings page, then clicking on “Profile”.

Cookie Placement

Imaike Studio, like many other commercial sites, may use a standard technology called “cookies” to collect information about how our site is used. Cookies were designed to help a website operator determine that a particular user had visited the site previously and thus save and remember any preferences that may have been set. We may use cookies to keep track of information about your current web browsing session which will be discarded as soon as you log out or close your web browser. This information also allows us to statistically monitor how many people are using our site and for what purpose. We may also make use of “persistent or memory based” cookies, which remain on your computer’s hard drive until you delete them. Examples include our use of these cookies to pre-populate forms you complete on our website based on information you have previously provided to us, enable interest-based advertising and collect information about your web browsing history. Although you have the ability to modify your browser to either accept all cookies, notify you when a cookie is sent, or reject all cookies, it may not be possible to utilize our services if you reject cookies.

Imaike Studio uses the services of Google Analytics, and may use other similar services, to collect and analyze statistical data about visitors to our website. These analytic services do not collect personally identifiable information. You may elect to opt out of the use of non-personally identifiable data by Google Analytics by downloading and installing an add-on to your web browser found here. You may find out more about how Google Analytics collects and processes data by visiting “How Google uses data when you use our partners’ sites or apps,” found here. You may also opt out of the Google AdWords service we use to serve ads, and which service also collects non-personally identifiable information, by visiting the Google Ad Settings page here.

How We Protect Information Online

We exercise great care to protect your personal information. This includes, among other things, using industry standard techniques such as firewalls, encryption, and intrusion detection. As a result, while we strive to protect your personal information, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us or receive from us. This is especially true for information you transmit to us via email since we have no way of protecting that information until it reaches us since email does not have the security features that are built into our websites.

In addition, we limit Imaike Studios’ volunteers and event organizers’ access to personal information. Only those volunteers and event organizers with a business reason to know have access to this information. We educate our volunteers and event organizers about the importance of maintaining confidentiality of customer information.

We review our security arrangements from time to time as we deem appropriate.

Payment Policy 

We accept cash as payment, or offer online payment services through PayPal. Through PayPal, users have the option of using their PayPal account, or using a credit card to pay (which is processed through PayPal, but doesn’t require a PayPal account). PayPal’s privacy policy can be found here. You may cancel or reschedule a reservation up to 12 hours in advance. If you cancel after this 12 hour period, even if you don’t use our services, we will not issue a refund. Note also that bookings can be made 30 minutes before the time of the booking. If you make such a booking that is within the 12 hour non-cancellation period, you will not be able to update, change, or cancel your reservation. A refund will not be issued in such a case either. If a cancellation is made before the 12 hour refund period and has already been paid for, we will issue you a refund with no questions asked.

Termination Clause

You are free to terminate (and thus deleting all information associated with your account) at any time from the My Bookings page in accordance with the EU General Data Protection Regulation. In addition, we may terminate your access to the site, without cause or notice, which may result in the forfeiture and destruction of all information associated with your account. All provisions of this agreement that, by their nature, should survive termination shall survive termination, including, without limitation, ownership provisions, warranty disclaimers, indemnity, and limitations of liability.

Notifications of change to this document

Imaike Studio reserves the right to change these conditions from time to time as it sees fit and your continued use of the site will signify your acceptance of any adjustment to these terms.

If there are any changes in how we use our site customers’ Personally Identifiable Information, notification by email will be made to those affected by the change. Any changes to our privacy policy will be posted on our site 30 days prior to these changes taking place. You are therefore advised to re-read this statement on a regular basis.
