My name is Rachel Beaney, and my this website for my freelance business of the same name. I love to provide educational content on digital marketers for digital marketing enthusiasts, current clients and future clients.
I take our relationship seriously – when you give me your email address or your information, I most certainly do not rent, trade or sell your email address with other businesses. It’s just not cool and I respect you more than that.
If you’d prefer to continue checking out my site without giving me access to your data, that’s totally cool too. Just scroll down to the green button below to disable cookies for this site. I want you to feel like this is a shoes-on or shoes-off kind of house based on whatever your vibe is.
Data I Collect
The cookies across my site are used for:
My site ads – Cookies are used to manage the advertising on my website (the banner ads, for example).
My ad retargeting – Cookies are used to serve ads to you about my latest blog posts or services. For example, if I write an awesome blog post about graphic design, I might choose to run a Facebook ad and serve it to everyone who read my other posts about graphic design because I figure it’s your jam. The data is anonymized so I do not uniquely target anyone.
I also occasionally send ads on Facebook to people who have subscribed to my mailing list via their Custom Audiences option. If you do not want to receive ads on Facebook, but wish to remain on the mailing list, please email me at email@example.com to request exclusion from these ads. If you wish to unsubscribe from my mailing list, please see the section below titled ‘Email Newsletter’.
I also occasionally run ads to new audiences using emails addresses or my website visitors as a source to build a Lookalike Audience on Facebook, to find more people like you who would be interested in my site content or business.
My product sales – if you buy products on my site, my site needs to talk to the payment platform (PayPal) in order for that purchase to happen. Please note that I do not store any billing or payment processing information. I only have a record of your email address, name and what you’ve purchased.
When you agree to cookies tracking you on my site, this will be taken as consent for 90 days.

When someone visits my site, I use a third-party service, Google Analytics, to collect standard internet log information and details of visitor behaviour patterns.
I do this to find out things such as the number of visitors to the various parts of the site. I use this data to see what blog posts people are into (so I can create more content like that), what products people buy (so I can make more like that, too) and how people find my site, so I can attract more visitors or clients in the future. This information is only processed in a way which does not identify anyone.
I do not make, and do not allow Google to make, any attempt to find out the identities of those visiting our website.
As part of signing up to my newsletter, I collect personal information like your name and email address. I use your email address to send you the newsletter with the latest content from the blog, and any news or updates I send out every few weeks. Every now and again I will check in to see if you’re happy with being on the list.
I don’t rent or trade email lists with other organisations and businesses. We all have enough spam in our lives and I don’t want to add to that.
I use a third-party provider, MailChimp, to deliver the newsletter. I gather statistics around email opening and clicks using industry standard technologies to help monitor and improve the newsletter. For more information, please see MailChimp’s privacy notice.
You can unsubscribe to my email list at any time of the day or night by clicking the unsubscribe link at the bottom of any of my emails or by emailing me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Please also refer to the section above about ‘ad retargeting’ as I occasionally use email addresses for Ad Retargeting, too.
Access to your personal information
You are entitled to view, amend, or delete the personal information that I hold. Email your request to me, Rachel Beaney, at email@example.com and I’ll get back to you as soon as I can with the information I have on you.
