Privacy Policy

At Sovereign Spirit, it is my commitment to you that I will be respectful of the data you share with me and I would never sell your information to other companies or businesses for marketing purposes; trust and confidence are key to everything in my work. This Privacy Policy is a container that gives a clear shape to what my picture of online integrity looks like: when and why I collect your personal information, how it is used, and the limited conditions under which I might disclose it to others, as well as how I keep it secure.
