At Blue Beach House Art I take your privacy seriously. Please read the following to learn more about my Privacy Policy. By visiting or using the Blue Beach House Art School website and domain name, and any other linked pages, features, content, or any other services we offer (collectively, the “Website”), you acknowledge that you accept the practices and policies outlined in this Privacy Policy, and you consent to our collecting, using, and sharing your information in the following ways.

Who I am

My website address is:  This website is a Thinkific site operated by Jennifer Buchanan of 41 Hastings Road, Bogangar, New South Wales, Australia.  My registered business name is Jenzart Creations, Australian Business Number 33 060 677 375.

What personal data I collect and why I collect it

If you create an account, I will store your name, address, email and phone number, which will be used to populate the checkout for future orders.

I generally store information about you for as long as we need the information for the purposes for which we collect and use it, and I am not legally required to continue to keep it. For example, I will store order information for 5 years for tax and accounting purposes. This includes your name, email address and billing and shipping addresses.

I will also store comments or reviews, if you choose to leave them.


When visitors leave comments on the site Thinkific collects the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.

Contact forms

The contact form submission data is stored in the database of the site on which it was submitted and is emailed directly to the owner of the form (i.e. Jennifer Buchanan). This email will include the submitter’s IP address, timestamp, name, email address, website, and message.  My contact form is provided by a third party, Thinkific.   Please refer to their privacy policy here: for information on how they may collect and use your data.

The information you provide when submitting a contact form will be retained for an indefinite period and is used for solely for customer service purposes.  I do not use this information for marketing purposes.

If you have an account and you log in to this site, I will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.

How long I retain your data

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so I can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.

For users that register on my website (if any), I also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.

What rights you have over your data

If you have an account on this site, or have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data I hold about you, including any data you have provided to me. You can also request that I erase any personal data I hold about you. This does not include any data I are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.

Where we send your data

Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.

How we protect your data

Your data is protected by an SSL certificate which has been purchased for this website.

SSL Certificates are small data files that digitally bind a cryptographic keyto an organization’s details. When installed on a web server, it activates the padlock and the https protocol (over port 443) and allows secure connections from a web server to a browser. Typically, SSLis used to secure credit card transactions, data transfer and logins, and more recently is becoming the norm when securing browsing of social media sites.

Spam protection and blocking of malicious login attempts is provided by Jetpack (see above).

What data breach procedures we have in place

I endeavor to protect the privacy of your account and other Personal Information I hold in my records, but I cannot guarantee complete security. Unauthorized entry or use, hardware or software failure, and other factors, may compromise the security of user information at any time. In the event that I believe that the security of your Personal Information in my possession or control may have been compromised, I will notify you of that development as soon as possible, and, I will do so by the email associated with your account. The Website may contain links to other sites. I am not responsible for the privacy policies and/or practices on other sites. When linking to another site you should read that site’s privacy policy.
