The Most Important Part…
Above all, it’s important that you know that I will always respect your privacy, your email address, and the information you give me. I never sell, trade, or abuse any information you submit to me. And if you ever want to stop receiving emails from me, I make it as easy as possible to stop receiving my regular communications, no questions asked.
Collection of your Personal Information
Visitors to KarenOrtner.com may be asked to share personally identifiable information, such as their e-mail address, name, home or work address or telephone number, and billing information (such as a credit card number when purchasing a service or a product). When you sign up for my email newsletter or purchase one of my products or services, you’ll be receiving relevant information about how to use EFT Tapping, Somatic Experiencing and other personal development techniques and information, along with receiving invites to my online events and programs. The personal information collected is used to provide you with this personal development information, as well as to provide you with a customized experience as you use my Products and Services.

Will My Information Ever Be Shared?
I never rent or sell your information to anybody, ever! I deeply value my relationship with you. My goal is to provide you valuable information to dramatically improve your life.

The only time that I share information is with trusted partners (see “Trusted Partners” section below) for the purposes of fulfillment of services.
