Our Privacy Policy

Because we want to demonstrate our commitment to your privacy, we are disclosing our information collection and privacy practices to you for review.

The Massage Studio of Barbara White is the sole user of any information collected on this site.  We do not give, sell, share, or rent this information to others - never, period. We collect information from our web site visitors at several different points on our web site.

  • Application for Admissions and Online Payment
    Visitors have the ability to complete an online Application for Admission to the Academy. The application requires personal information such as name, address, phone numbers, employment information and other such data. The application is located on a web page that is encrypted and secured with Secure Sockets Layer encryption technology. Your personal information is protected.

    We use IP addresses to analyze trends, administer the site, track user's movement, and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use.  IP addresses are not linked to personally identifiable information.  In order to better understand traffic patterns and usage on this site, we analyze our site activity to obtain overall usage statistics.  These usage statistics provide us with certain information obtained from data within the browser string (information contained in every user's browser). Information we collect from the browser string includes domain name, browser type, operating system and MIME type.

Why we use Paypal for online payment processing:

  1. Paypal respects your privacy. You may review Paypal’s privacy policy at the link provided below.
  2. Paypal uses the best commercially available technology and procedures to protect the security of your online transactions. Review their Data Security and Encryption if you have further questions.
  3.  Paypal has an Unauthorized Account Activity Form for potential fraud reporting. They take fraud reports seriously and thoroughly investigate each one.
  4. Paypal offers buyers protection through their Buyer Complaint Process.
  5. For everything you wanted to know about Paypal (That someone else has probably already asked) follow this link.
  6. Paypal is becoming one of the most widely accepted payment methods of online merchants. Over 42,000 websites and many more thousands of online auction sellers accept Paypal.
  7. Buyers can pay by Check, Credit Card or directly from their Paypal account balance. (They pay a very competitive interest rate on balances too.)
  8. Even though it’s listed as number eight, the number one reason we use Paypal is for your security and ours. We NEVER handle your credit or bank information so you know that we can never misuse it and you don’t have to worry about anyone breaking into our site and stealing it.    It’s not there. At the same time, since we only ship to confirmed addresses (At least until we know you), we know that you have met Paypal’s standards and are a viable buyer. This offers us both a level of protection that other merchant accounts simply can not match.

Please feel free to contact us with any questions regarding the privacy of information you provide.
