Who I am
I am a work-from-home mother of six, consulting only from personal experience and years of research (since 2005) on natural health topics and more specifically on the organic personal care and nutritional products offered by the Australian company called Miessence. My personal website address is www.KVOrganics.com and my Miessence shop site is www.miessence.com/kvorganics. I am not a doctor or qualified natural health practitioner, and I cannot give you medical advice of any kind. I can only share personal anecdotal experiences of my own family and/or customers who have given me permission to share their testimonials (which should be regarded fully as anecdotal only and not curative or claiming any guarantees of results – everyone’s body is different and everyone’s experiences can therefore be different as well), as well as general educational articles or other resources that I have found helpful in my own journey. It is your responsibility to consult your MD or ND as needed for your specific health concerns.
What personal data I collect and why I collect it
People give me their names and email addresses, and permission to email them, in person or online for a number of reasons – e.g. free educational resources, entries into giveaways, and/or specific information requested on the Miessence products and/or home business. I use this contact info to deliver the requested information and then stay in touch ongoing via my 2x/month email newsletter for as long as the person remains interested. If at any time you no longer wish to receive my email newsletter, you can easily unsubscribe any time using the update/unsubscribe link at the bottom of each newsletter and/or contact me to request that you be removed from my database, which is currently maintained in my account on the Infusionsoft email marketing platform. I never share your information with outside marketing agencies, and will only share your contact information with Miessence as appropriate and when necessary (e.g. you won a gift certificate giveaway and so I send them your contact info for them to create your gift certificate).
If you are a Miessence customer also, please be aware that Miessence HQ in Australia maintains its own database of customers, and as an independent representative of the company, I have no direct control over their database. I only have control over my own email list of interested contacts. If you have questions about Miessence’s use of your contact info at any time, please feel free to contact them directly at support (at) miessence (dot) com.

All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.
