What personal data we collect and why we collect it

Most data is collected specifically when you purchase something from the website or submit a form on the website. However, the site does use some cookies (e.g. Google Analytics, MailPoet) in order to better understand how the website is being used and to improve the website or provide additional services. The data collected in each of these cases is described below.

Payment Processor

All financial data is routed through a payment processor to ensure that your data is kept secure. We use Stripe on this site, so you can rest easy knowing that an industry-standard payment processor is securing your financial data, and that this website uses SSL to create secure connections.

This site uses Dubsado to provide you with the opportunity to contact us, schedule custom work, or purchase various services. To use any of these forms, you must provide specific personal information (e.g. e-mail, name), and this data is stored with Dubsado and Gmail.

From time to time, polls are available on the website. In these cases, the only data collected is your choice in the poll.


When you leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also your IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.

An anonymized string created from your email address (also called a hash) may be provided to the Gravatar service to see if you are using it. The Gravatar service privacy policy is available here: After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.


Giveaways are conducted through KingSumo’s web app. By entering a giveaway, KingSumo collects your e-mail address to subscribe you to the J. L. Wilson Designs e-mail list and tracks how many entries to the giveaway you have earned based on your actions.

This site uses Google Analytics in order to track information about how the site is being used. This lets us know some technical information like which browser and operating system was used and whether the site was viewed on a mobile phone, a tablet, or on a computer so that we can improve your future experience.

How long we retain your data

Analytics records, and messages received by submitting forms on this website, making purchases, or by e-mail may be kept indefinitely.

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

What rights you have over your data

You can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes, and if you do request we erase personal data, some services may no longer work (e.g. download access to purchased products).

Where we send your data

Third parties are only involved when they are necessary to provide a particular service. The site is hosted by Amazon Web Services, and is backed up on Google Drive. Personal data collected via forms on the site is shared with Dubsado, while personal data collected via giveaways is shared with Kingsumo. Personal and financial data is shared with Stripe for secure payment processing. Analytics is shared with Google. Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service, and data collected via newsletter subscription is connected to a MailPoet account and a Sendfox account.

How secure is your data

The site uses SSL to make a secure connection, and runs a firewall and malware software. Access to this data is password-protected. Should a breach occur, you will be notified within 14 days.

Any data that is not stored in the site’s database is stored in a third party database designed specifically for the purpose of storing this type of data securely (e.g. Stripe).

A note about GDPR

We’re a small business. We run the site on WordPress and utilize plugins to make the website a better experience. We’re still waiting to learn how some of these plugins have adjusted for GDPR (General Data Protection Regulations). As we learn more, we will update this privacy policy.
