Privacy Policy

Allan Breed School of Woodworking (“us”, “we”, or “our”) operates (the “Website”). This page informs you of our policies regarding the collection, use, and disclosure of Personal Information we receive from users of the Website.

We use your Personal Information only for providing and improving the Website. By using the Website, you agree to the collection and use of information in accordance with this policy.

Information We Collect

“Non-Personal Information” is information that, without the aid of additional information cannot be directly associated with a specific person. “Personal Information,” by contrast, is information such as a name or email address that, without more, can be directly associated with a specific person.

Information You Provide to Us

We collect Personal Information from you when you place an order, register for a class, subscribe to an email newsletter, or fill out a form on the Website. In each case, Allan Breed School of Woodworking collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of your interaction with the Website.

Contact Forms: We ask that you provide your name and email address when filling out our contact form located at so that we may respond to your inquiry via email. When you submit the contact form, your message and contact information (name and email address) will be sent, in the form of an email, to Allan Breed. Information submitted through the contact form may be stored within the Website database for up to 90 days.

Email Newsletter: We ask for your email address when subscribing to our email newsletter, so that we may notify you via email of new classes or products. The email address you provide will be transferred to MailChimp, our marketing automation platform, for processing in accordance with their Privacy Policy and Terms. You may choose to unsubscribe from our email list at any time by clicking the “unsubscribe” link at the bottom of the email.

Class Registrations and Store Purchases: To register for a class or purchase a product from our store, you must provide contact information (like name and shipping address) and financial information (like credit card number, expiration date). This information is used for billing purposes and to fill your orders. If we have trouble processing an order, we’ll use this information to contact you. All transactions in our web store are processed securely through a gateway provider (PayPal). We do not process or store credit card information on our Website server. The PayPal Privacy Policy can be viewed here.

Information We Collect Automatically

We use cookies to help us compile aggregate data about site traffic and Website interaction so that we can offer better Website experiences and tools in the future. This Non-Personal Information is of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, pages visited and the date and time of each visitor request. We use Google Analytics to collect, monitor and analyze this information.

You can choose to have your computer warn you each time a cookie is being sent, or you can choose to turn off all cookies. You do this through your browser settings. Since each browser is a little different, look at your browser’s Help Menu to learn the correct way to identify and modify your cookies.

You can opt out of Google Analytics by using the Google Analytics Opt-Out Browser add-on.

How We Protect Your Information

We do not sell, trade, or otherwise transfer to outside parties your Personal Information. This does not include Website hosting partners and other parties who assist us in operating our Website, conducting our business, or serving our users, so long as those parties agree to keep this information confidential. We may also release information when its release is appropriate to comply with the law, enforce our site policies, or protect ours or others’ rights, property or safety.

While no online service is 100% secure, we work very hard to protect information about you against unauthorized access, use, alteration, or destruction, and take reasonable measures to do so. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job (for example, order fulfillment or customer service) are granted access to Personal Information. The Website utilizes Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology and we perform routine malware scans.


The Website may contain links to other websites. Please be aware that we are not responsible for the content or privacy practices of such other websites. We encourage users to be aware when they leave our Website and to read the privacy statements of any other website that collects Personal Information.

COPPA (Children Online Privacy Protection Act)

We do not specifically market to children under the age of 13 or knowingly collect or maintain Personal Information from anyone under the age of 13. If you are under 13 years of age, do not submit any Personal Information through the Website. Any person who provides Personal Information through the Website represents to us that he or she is 13 years of age or older. If we learn that Personal Information has been collected from a user under 13 years of age, we will take the appropriate steps to delete this information.

Privacy Policy Changes

We may update this Privacy Policy from time to time. Allan Breed School of Woodworking encourages visitors to frequently check this page for any changes. Should we update, amend, or make any changes to our privacy policy, those changes will be reflected here. Your continued use of the Website after any change in this Privacy Policy will constitute your consent to such change.
