Privacy Policy

Updated: October 7, 2018

Hey! Thank you for visiting the Simply Minimal website. I am the author, Katelyn Cresmer. I love technology, but like you, I care about my personal data and privacy.

This page explains how I use any personal data I collect from you. It explains why I collect your data, how I collect it and what I use your data for. Most importantly, I will show you how to delete your data. If you have any questions about the data I collect, please email me.

This page will be updated from time to time as technology changes and if I use a new tool. You will be notified through email if you are subscribed to my newsletter.

How and Why I Collect Information


We may use third-party Service Providers to monitor and analyze the use of our Service.

Google Analytics

Google Analytics is a web analytics service offered by Google that tracks and reports website traffic. Google uses the data collected to track and monitor the use of our Service. This data is shared with other Google services. Google may use the collected data to contextualize and personalize the ads of its own advertising network.

You can opt-out of having made your activity on the Service available to Google Analytics by installing the Google Analytics opt-out browser add-on. The add-on prevents the Google Analytics JavaScript (ga.js, analytics.js, and dc.js) from sharing information with Google Analytics about visits activity.

For more information on the privacy practices of Google, please visit the Google Privacy & Terms web page:


If you leave a comment (found on bottom of each page to make suggestions for me to update the resources) on my blog, WordPress collects: the name you enter, the email address and/or website URL you enter, your IP address, and the time and date entered. I use this information as suggestions to make the website better. Once I read the suggestion, I delete the comment.

Email Newsletter

If you sign up for my newsletter, I collect the first name and the email address you enter. This information is stored in MailChimp. I use this information to email you directly. I will never share your email address, and you can unsubscribe anytime by the ‘unsubscribe’ link located at the end of each email.

MailChimp’s Privacy Policy can be found here.


Purchasing the Simply Minimal book is done through two 3rd party websites.


Gumroad hosts the Simply Minimal ebook. If you purchase the ebook, please consult their privacy policy. If you purchased the ebook, the only information they give me is your email address used at purchase, date of purchase, amount paid and coupon codes used. I use this information to verify purchases in the result of refunds.


Amazon distributes the Simply Minimal book. If you use Amazon and purchase the book, please consult their privacy policy. If you purchased the book through Amazon, they do not give me any of your information. They also directly deal with refunds from items purchased on their website.

Links To Other Sites

Our Service may contain links to other sites that are not operated by us. If you click on a third party link, you will be directed to that third party’s site. We strongly advise you to review the Privacy Policy of every site you visit.

We have no control over and assume no responsibility for the content, privacy policies or practices of any third party sites or services.
