Your information is kept secure via password protected systems only accessible by myself (Dianna DiNoble) My computers and devices used to access this information are kept secure with antivirus software. Starkers.com undressedlingerie.com and torontocorsetacademy.com are protected with a firewall. I absolutely value your privacy and have never (and will never) pass on or sell your information to any third parties. .

After purchasing one of my products, enrolling in a sewing class or subscribing to my mailing list, the personal data I may hold about you is as follows:

I only collect the minimum amount of information required to communicate with you and I keep only what is necessary to process your orders and/or communicate with you via my newsletter (if you opted to receive it).

What personal data we collect and why we collect it


When visitors leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.

An anonymized string created from your email address (also called a hash) may be provided to the Gravatar service to see if you are using it. The Gravatar service privacy policy is available here: https://automattic.com/privacy/. After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.


If you upload images to the website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the website.

Who we share your data with

How long we retain your data

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.

For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. 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.

What rights you have over your data

If you have an account on this site, or have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.

Where we send your data

Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.
