What Personal Data I Collect and Why I Collect It
Comments
When visitors leave comments on the site, I 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.
Cookies
If you leave a comment on my site, you may opt-in to saving 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.
Analytics
I use Google Analytics to track this website’s effectiveness. This means I track visitor behavior and collect anonymized information about each person. Your IP address and some demographic information, along with any website interactions, is collected through Google Analytics.
Using an analytics platform helps ensure a positive visitor experience. All data from this tool is kept encrypted and private without risk of sale or other misuse.
Who I Share Your Data With
The tools I use for a better experience are: Google Analytics, MailChimp, and MailMunch. These programs may collect your data, but it is always with your explicit permission.
Your data is otherwise kept private for my use only, ensuring its safety from spammers and other malicious intents.
How Long I Retain Your Data
If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so I can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.
All analytical data collected is kept for up to one year to ensure time for measurement and improvement.
What Rights You Have Over Your Data
If you have left comments on this site, 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 I hold about you. This does not include any data I am obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.
Where I Send Your Data
Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service. That is the only export currently used for visitor data.
Additional Information
How I protect your data
Your information is securely kept through my email marketing provider (MailChimp)*, and Google Analytics.
* Your email address is saved only when you provide it via a contact or sign up form.
Your personal data, anything I collect, is not sold or sent externally to other programs or for other uses. Other programs added over time are meant to enhance your experience with my website, and you will be notified here should it affect your data.
What data breach procedures I have in place
I use a program called Wordfence to protect this site from malware and hacking. It will keep this website from being corrupted or have any data stolen.
If somehow a data breach takes place, I will notify you to the best of my ability, including announcing the event on my blog and this page.
Should you feel your data has been misused, you can contact me by any of the means below. All concerns are taken seriously and fully investigated. If a true issue did take place, you have the right to seek legal action.
