What personal data does this site collect?

Newsletter If you subscribe to my newsletter, only your email address is collected. Email addresses are not shared or sold. The newsletter includes new releases, giveaways, random humor, and the occasional thought-provoking post. Comments If you leave a comment on this website, the data shown in the comments form is saved, along with your IP address and browser user agent. Comment submission data is submitted to the Akismet service for the sole purpose of spam checking. An anonymized string created from your email address is provided to the Gravatar service to determine if your email address is associated with a Gravatar. After approval of your comment, your Gravatar (if you have one) is visible to the public in the context of your comment. Contact forms

Your name, email address, and message, along with your IP address and browser user agent, are captured when you submit a message using this website’s contact form. This information is not shared, sold, or used for marketing purposes. Contact form submission data is submitted to the Akismet service for the sole purpose of spam checking.

Media If you upload images in a comment to a blog post, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included, because visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the website. Cookies When you leave a comment on this 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. Cookies can be deleted from your browser at any time. 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 you had visited the other website. These other websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracing your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website. Analytics This website employs the Jetpack plugin to track visitor usage. A visitor’s IP address, user ID (if logged in), username (if logged in), browser user agent, visiting URL, referring URL, timestamp of event, browser language, and country code are collected. Important: The site owner does not have access to any of this information. For example, a site owner can see that a specific post has 285 views, but cannot see which specific users/accounts viewed that post. Stats logs are retained by Automattic for 28 days and are used for the sole purpose of powering this feature. Activity Tracked: Post and page views, outbound link clicks, referring URLs and search engine terms, and country. This site honors DNT (Do Not Track) settings of visitors.

How long is your data retained?

If you leave a comment on this website, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so the site can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue. For the newsletter, your email address is retained indefinitely unless you unsubscribe.

What rights do you have over your data?

You can request to receive an exported file of your comments and metadata. You can also request that any personal data retained about you be erased. This does not include any data this website is obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.
