Email Information

If you choose to correspond with us through email, we may retain the content of your email messages together with your email address and our responses. I provide the same protections for these electronic communications that I employ in the maintenance of information received by mail and telephone.

Do we disclose any information to outside parties?

We do not sell, trade, or otherwise transfer to outside parties any of your personally identifiable information. This does not include trusted third parties who assist us in operating our website, conducting our business, or servicing you, so long as those parties agree to keep this information confidential. We may also release your information when we believe release is appropriate to comply with the law, enforce our site policies, or protect ours or others rights, property, or safety.

When you sign up to receive our newsletter and updates, your data is passed to our email marketing platform (MailChimp). A copy of MailChimp’s privacy policy can be accessed at https://mailchimp.com/legal/privacy.

Third-Party Links

We may include links to other websites. We are not responsible for the practices employed by websites linked to or from our website or the information or content contained therein. Often links to other websites are provided solely as pointers to information on topics that may be useful to the users of our Website.
Please remember that when you use a link to go from our website to another website, our Privacy Policy is no longer in effect. Your browsing and interaction on any other website, including websites which have a link on my website, is subject to that website’s own rules and policies. Please read over those rules and policies before proceeding.

Comments

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.

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

Cookies

Cookies are small files that a site or its service provider transfers to your computer’s hard drive through your web browser (if you allow this in your browser settings). Cookies enable a site’s or service provider’s systems to recognize your browser and capture and remember certain information. This enables a more customized browsing experience when visiting a site and can prevent site visitors from having to manually customize their site experience on each visit.

  • authentication – we use cookies to identify you when you visit our website and as you navigate our website;
  • analysis – we use cookies to help us to analyze the use and performance of our website and services;
  • cookie consent – we use cookies to store your preferences in relation to the use of cookies more generally.
  • Insofar as those cookies are not strictly necessary for the provision of our website and services, we will ask you to consent to our use of cookies when you first visit our website.

If you leave a comment on our site you may opt-in to save your name, email address and website in cookies. These are for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for one year.

Embedded content from other websites

Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.

These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracking your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.

Legal Basis of Processing

We may process Personal Data relating to Users if one of the following applies:

  • you have given your consent for one or more specific purposes;
  • processing is necessary for the proper administration of our website and business;
  • processing is necessary for the performance of a contract between you and us and/or taking steps, at your request, to enter into such a contract;
  • processing is necessary for compliance with a legal obligation;
  • processing is necessary for the purposes of our legitimate interests.

In any case, the Owner will gladly help to clarify the specific legal basis that applies to the processing, and in particular whether the provision of Personal Data is a statutory or contractual requirement, or a requirement necessary to enter into a contract.

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.

We review our retention periods for personal information on a regular basis. We will hold your personal information on our systems for as long as is necessary for the relevant activity, or as long as is set out in any relevant contract you hold with us.

Personal data submitted for the purposes of subscribing to our email lists will be retained until you choose to unsubscribe or until we determine that you are no longer actively accessing our email communications.

Data Storage Location

Please note that your information is currently stored and processed on computers in the United States. The laws on holding personal data in the United States may be different from the laws of your Country of residence or citizenship. To prevent unauthorized access, maintain data accuracy, and ensure the correct use of information, we have put in place appropriate physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect online.

You acknowledge that personal data that you submit for publication through our website or services may be available, via the internet, around the world. We cannot prevent the use (or misuse) of such personal data by others.

What rights you have over your data

If you have an account on this website 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.

Children’s Personal Data

We do not collect any information from anyone under 13 years of age. Our website is directed to people who are at least 13 years old or older.

If we have reason to believe that we hold personal data of a person under that age in our databases, we will delete that personal data.

Online Privacy Policy Only

This online privacy policy applies only to information collected through our website and not to information collected offline.

Your Consent

By using this Website you consent to the collection and use of your personal information as described in this Privacy Policy. I reserve the right to amend this privacy policy at any time with or without notice.
