Privacy Policies, Website Policies, and Statements
of Lodestar Visions/Design Matters
Kristen Stuart, Lodestar-Visions.com
We value your privacy much as we value our own. In an age where identity theft has increased, we consider privacy important enough of an issue to have a policy and state
We know that “security” is a relative matter. We take precautions and use reasonable methods in providing for the security of information and to safeguard it. We are responsible for the actions that we take. Similarly, we believe that persons who steal or commit other crimes are responsible for their actions and, therefore, we must reasonably disclaim responsibility for certain actions of others regardless of having solid methods in place.
Regardless of this above and statements below, YOU VISIT THIS WEBSITE AND BLOG AT YOUR OWN RISK. BY VISITING AND NAVIGATING EITHER REPRESENTS THAT YOU AGREE TO THIS AND OTHER POLICIES THAT ARE ACTIVE. IF YOU DO NOT AGREE, PLEASE EXIT THIS WEBSITE OR BLOG IMMEDIATELY.

Contact information, names, addresses, email addresses, etc., are used only to communicate with persons providing this information, or to ship items or materials that have been purchased.

Some Safeguards of Information & Privacy
As a matter of security itself, we will not divulge our specific methods in certain areas. However, here are some indicators of the actions and safeguards to protect privacy, information, and assets, which we have in place:
