Privacy and Personal Information Policies
aantonop Operations LLC and aantonop Events LCC (collectively “aantonop”) are organizations based in the USA. Our company policies encourage collecting as little information as possible about you.
aantonop collects minimal customer information to process orders and support the customer’s experience. All orders require an email address, for customer support enquiries and refund processing. Of course, we have no way of knowing if you use a throwaway email address, but if you do this may make it impossible to process a refund or resolve a customer service issue. aantonop collects a physical address only for physical products that need to be shipped to the customer. No more than once per month, we may send you a discount coupon for a product related to one you have already purchased, if your prior purchase qualifies you for a discount.
During checkout you are also given the option to signup for our general announcement mailing list, which is a double-opt-in mailing list. See the sections on Mailing Lists and Data Storage below for more information on those topics.
aantonop collects an email address as part of registration or purchase of a workshop through the Shop. Furthermore, aantonop collects an optional First and Last name for display in the students Certificate of Completion. If you do not enter your name, the certificate will not display your name. Furthermore, aantonop collects students’ progress through the workshops, including but not limited to quiz answers, exercise answers and assignment reports. This workshop progress data is connected to the student’s email address and (optionally) their first and last name.
Subscribers on the Patreon platform may have access to additional content on aantonop related sites and services. In order to provide this access, Patreon subscribers may be assigned an automatic account linked to their email address on additional servers outside the Patreon platform. Additionally, Patreon subscribers are also added to Mailchimp mailing list for the duration of their Patreon subscription. This mailing list is used to infrequently contact Patreon subscribers independently of the Patreon platform.
We will use the information you provide on mailing list signup and event forms, or on the Patreon platform, to provide updates about events, books and other relevant announcements, or to survey you about aantonop offerings. We do not share or sell your information to third parties. Each mailing list you subscribe to has a narrow scope and will only be used to communicate information relevant to the topic you’ve selected. You can unsubscribe from a mailing list at any time by clicking the unsubscribe link in the footer of any email you receive from us. The mailing lists are hosted and managed by Mailchimp and are subject to their terms and conditions, in addition to our own. If you choose to unsubscribe to a mailing list or from Patreon, your personal information will be deleted from the database. Each quarter, we download the most recent mailing list information (as a backup) to an access controlled storage location and delete the older records. By subscribing, you agree that we may process your information in accordance with these terms.
Our website uses Google Analytics to collect statistics on the use of our site. We enable the IP Anonymization feature in Google Analytics to prevent collection of user location or network identity. Read more about IP Anonymization. We do not collect any user ID or personal information about our visitors, unless they choose to register and login to use our shop or workshops.

All data collected by aantonop will be stored in one or more of the following access controlled data storage and/or processing environments: Mailchimp servers, Eventbrite servers, Google servers, Patreon servers, AWS hosted servers, authorized aantonop computers and devices, and aantonop websites and servers.
