A Note from Sonja -

I used to work in tech - the protecting client data is of the utmost importance to me. I take the responsibility of protecting your "PII" (Personally Identifiable Information) very seriously, and this includes your birth data.
So, here's what you need to know about where your information will be used:

  • Your birth information will be collected via an intake form hosted by https://tally.so/.
    This information will then be entered into the software I run locally (Janus Astrology Software), in order to calculate the planetary alignments at the time of your birth.
  • I use Google Docs (docs.google.com) and Notion (www.notion.so) as my primary document and data storage, along with my local drives.

Tech is, and always will be, fallible. I protect your information to the best of my ability, however I cannot provide a guarantee around the tech services I use, nor am I liable for any security breaches which may occur.

If you are not comfortable with the use of these services, please feel free to contact me at www.sonjathegrey.com/contact, and let's discuss your concerns. There is no pressure to buy, I will only work to clarify where the data is used, and if you don't want to purchase, then that's no problem. I want you to feel safe in your purchases from me.

I keep client data on file for ease of reference for future questions/purchases from you. If at any time after you've received your services, you would like me to delete your data, please let me know and I will happily do so. This means I won't be able to reference your chart or review our previous work together, so that's the trade off. There's no pressure intended or implied - that simply the reason I have your data.

Additionally, as you browse the Site, we collect information about the individual web pages or products that you view, what websites or search terms referred you to the Site, and information about how you interact with the Site. We refer to this automatically-collected information as “Device Information.”

We collect Device Information using the following technologies:

- “Cookies” are data files that are placed on your device or computer and often include an anonymous unique identifier. For more information about cookies, and how to disable cookies, visit http://www.allaboutcookies.org.

When we talk about “Personal Information” in this Privacy Policy, we are talking both about Device Information and Order Information.


We use the Order Information that we collect generally to fulfill any orders placed through the Site (including processing your payment information, arranging for shipping, and providing you with invoices and/or order confirmations). Additionally, we use this Order Information to:
Communicate with you;
Screen our orders for potential risk or fraud; and
When in line with the preferences you have shared with us, provide you with information or advertising relating to our products or services.
All Payment Data (your Credit Card information, and Payment Processor username and password) is stored by the payment processor (PayPal Inc, Stripe), and is never accessible by Sonja the Grey.
We use the Device Information that we collect to help us screen for potential risk and fraud (in particular, your IP address), and more generally to improve and optimize our Site (for example, by generating analytics about how our customers browse and interact with the Site, and to assess the success of our marketing and advertising campaigns).


We share your Personal Information with third parties to help us use your Personal Information, as described above. For example, we use ko-fi.com to power our online store--you can read more about how Ko-fi uses your Personal Information here: https://more.ko-fi.com/privacy .

We use tally.so for our intake forms, you can read their terms & privacy here: https://tally.so/help/terms-and-privacy.

Finally, we may also share your Personal Information to comply with applicable laws and regulations, to respond to a subpoena, search warrant or other lawful request for information we receive, or to otherwise protect our rights.

As described above, we use your Personal Information to provide you with targeted advertisements or marketing communications we believe may be of interest to you. For more information about how targeted advertising works, you can visit the Network Advertising Initiative’s (“NAI”) educational page at http://www.networkadvertising.org/understanding-online-advertising/how-does-it-work.

You can opt out of targeted advertising by contacting me directly at https://www.sonjathegrey.com/contact. Currently, no third-party advertising (Facebook Ads, Bing, etc) is in use. Sonja the Grey currently uses your information to provide marketing communications that are in direct response to requests you make (e.g., if you check a box to sign up for the newsletter, then you'll receive the newsletter). 

Additionally, you can opt out of some of these services by visiting the Digital Advertising Alliance’s opt-out portal at: http://optout.aboutads.info/.
