Privacy Policy

Let’s keep it simple.

Your privacy and trust are important to me.

I will not sell your personal information or share it with any third parties, except those listed in this privacy policy, and only for the purpose of maintaining my newsletter and managing the site.

If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me.

Comments

When you leave a comment on this site, the data shown in the comment form is collected, as well as your IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection. Your comments may be checked through the Akismet automated spam detection service. Comments may also be moderated in the case of violent, hateful, or otherwise inappropriate content. For more information, review the Akismet privacy policy.

Newsletter

I use MailChimp to manage my email newsletter. When you subscribe to the newsletter your email address will be shared with MailChimp for the purpose of sending emails and managing your subscriber settings. You can unsubscribe from the newsletter at any time by clicking the link at the bottom of every email. For more information, review the MailChimp privacy policy.

Analytics

I use Google Analytics, including the use of tracking cookies, to improve the website and analyze traffic patterns. Your IP address is anonymized for privacy, and you may disable Google Analytics anytime by clicking this link. For more information, review the Google Analytics privacy policy.

Embedded Content

Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, and articles). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if you have 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 if you have an account and are logged in to that website.

Data Retention

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

Data Protection

I implement a variety of measures to protect your personal data, including SSL (secure sockets layer) encryption and two-factor authentication when managing my email newsletter. Any known data breaches will be posted here and emailed to active newsletter subscribers.

Minor Children

This website is not intended for use by minor children under the age of thirteen. If you’re a parent who believes your child may have submitted personal data, please contact me.

Your Rights

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

Updates

Changes or updates will be posted on this privacy policy page.
