Your Privacy

There's a formal privacy policy below, but here are a few quick things that address some of the questions that I have when I visit websites:

  • I publish this site to share knowledge, express myself, and explain my business services. I don't sell or share any information that I might gather from you.
  • If you fill out my contact form, it is processed via Formspree to cut down on spam on my end. Formspree does not store your information. I'm the only one that gets your contact information.
  • If you subscribe to this site, you are signing up to get emailed when I publish blog posts, articles, and newsletters. That will happen weekly-ish.
  • My website operates in the hosted environment of I might change that in the future. But until then, you can read their privacy policy.

Privacy Policy


Hildegard BV (referred to within this policy as Hildegard), has created this privacy policy so that you understand what information Hildegard collects through this website (, and let you know what we will do with it. This policy was last reviewed and updated on December 15, 2022.

Your Agreement

When you visit this website or submit information via the site, you agree to the terms of this policy. Please review the conditions to ensure they are acceptable. If something doesn't make sense or if you would like to talk about the policy with us, please contact us using the contact page – we especially enjoy hearing different perspectives.

Site Visitors

Information that Hildegard receives about you (the website visitor) falls into two broad categories: aggregate information and personal data.
"Aggregate information" is information that does not identify you as a unique site visitor and may include statistical information about which pages are most frequently visited. Aggregate information may be collected through cookies and similar web technologies. "Cookies" are small text files that our website uses to recognize unique and repeat site visitors, what pages are most commonly visited, and to compile aggregate data to improve the website and information we might provide.

While may use cookies or other similar Internet technologies, we will not collect or retain your name or other personal data, unless you specifically provide that information to us. Besides, no third parties are permitted to use that data for their purposes. With aggregate information, Hildegard may undertake or commission statistical and other summary analyses of site visitor behavior and characteristics when visiting the website. Although Hildegard may share this aggregate information with third parties, we will not share information that allows third parties to identify you personally as a site visitor, or determine anything personal about you.

Personal Data from Site Visitors

Hildegard may receive personal data from you if you use the website (i) to submit questions or comments, (ii) to request information about services offered by Hildegard, or (iii) to provide email newsletter services which call for submission of personal data – basically your name and email address. Hildegard uses personal data which you submit through the website (a) to respond to you (although Hildegard has no obligation to respond to you), and (b) to provide the services requested by you, namely the newsletter or information in response to your request via the contact us form.

Further Uses

Hildegard may wish to use the information you provide (mostly name and email address) for contacting you independent of an inquiry. If we contact you for anything other than an inquiry, you may always opt-out of further contact by letting us know you no longer wish to receive communication.


Hildegard will not disclose personal data received from you except as described in this privacy policy or where the law requires disclosure.

Sensitive Data

Hildegard will never ask for sensitive data from you, so please do not provide any sensitive information via this site. Sensitive information includes, but is not limited to, your date of birth, unique citizen ID such as a social security number, home address, or names of your child(ren).

Opt-Out Notice

If you have previously provided contact information and no longer want to receive communications from us, just let us know, and we will stop future contact. If Hildegard receives an opt-out notice from you, we will restrict the use of your data to the original purposes, or such other purposes as you may authorize, or we will delete personal data. Hildegard shall comply with your request to modify or stop communications within fifteen (15) business days following receipt of an opt-out notification.

Onward Disclosures

Hildegard will only share your information with our employees, inclusive of contractors and consultants, who have a reasonable "need to know" to respond to your inquiry or send you a newsletter or promotional email. Hildegard will not disclose your data to anyone else without prior notification.

Confidentiality and Security of Personal Data

Hildegard maintains physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards designed to secure your data and prevent unauthorized access. These technical security systems are structured to deter and prevent hackers and others from accessing your data. Due to evolving technologies, Hildegard cannot assure that personal data provided will remain free from loss, misuse, or alteration through third parties who obtain unauthorized access.

Right to Access, Change or Delete Personal Data

Upon 15-business day notice and to the extent the request does not compromise its personal data protection practices, Hildegard will honor your requests for access to your data to correct, amend or delete such information.

Privacy Protection for Children

Hildegard’s website is not intended for use by any person under 16 years of age. If Hildegard learns that a child under 16 has provided personal data, Hildegard will delete this information from databases.

Hildegard employs Thinkific Labs Inc. (doing business as (DBA) Thinkific) to provide you with training on our behalf. On Hildegard’s behalf, Thinkific delivers online training-related services and assists Hildegard in analyzing how its training is used.

Thinkific has access to your data, technical information, and information about site visits, only to perform training-related tasks on Hildegard’s behalf and are obligated not to disclose or use it for any other purpose.
