WHAT PERSONAL INFORMATION MIGHT I COLLECT AND WHY? 

Derivative Data


When you access this site, I'm sure Google and Blogger collects things like your IP address, browser type, operating system, access times, and pages you viewed directly before accessing this site. The only place I see this information is in my Blogger Statistics (referral sites) and Google Analytics, and when I do, it never matches it with your name or identifying information. It's just a statistical compilation to help me understand where my traffic is coming from and the demographics of people who view my site. 


Embedded content from other websites


Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.) or external links. 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.

Links To Other Sites


This site may contain links to other sites that are not operated by us. If you click on a third party link, you will be directed to that third party’s site. We strongly advise you to review the Privacy Policy of every site you visit.

We have no control over and assume no responsibility for the content, privacy policies or practices of any third party sites or services and do our utmost to curate the content that we link to.

Comments


Comments on this site use Disqus. You can view Disqus's Privacy Policy. For purposes of this site, I don't obtain or keep any information beyond your comment. 

Contact Me


I'm not sure if I'm using a contact form anywhere on this site beyond where I normally would check, but if you see one, it most likely emails me. Otherwise, I usually tell you guys to email me directly. If you do, I will most likely keep your email on file for a very long time lost in a sea of emails, and if I wanted to find it, I would struggle to do so (like the registration of that software I purchased 5 years ago when my computer crashed--I just can't find it). I can delete it after receiving it, but you will want to request that in your email. But if you are sending me threats or something illegal, I may have to keep it for legal reasons. 

Newsletter / Email Sign UP


So I tried to bribe you several times for your email address. If you gave me one, you may have noticed a link to AWeber's privacy policy. For purposes of me, I won't be selling your email to anyone. I am struggling to send emails outside of whatever I have automated, but if I do send you an email, it's about me and updates to my stuff and things I'm doing. Some may seem third party ish, but it would be from me, such as I might send an email promoting a friend's project or a project I'm involved in. You can unsubscribe at anytime.


Tracking & Cookies Data

Cookies are files with small amount of data which may include an anonymous unique identifier. Cookies are sent to your browser from a website and stored on your device.

DISCLOSURE OF YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION


This part I pretty much just copied and pasted from another website, and I'm going to ad lib where necessary, but it's really a double checker on how I might be using your information. 

We may share information we have collected about you in certain situations. Your information may be disclosed as follows:

By Law or to Protect Rights


If we believe the release of information about you is necessary to respond to legal process, to investigate or remedy potential violations of our policies, or to protect the rights, property, and safety of others, we may share your information as permitted or required by any applicable law, rule, or regulation. 

Third-Party Service Providers


We may share your information with third parties that perform services for us or on our behalf, including data analysis, email delivery, hosting services, customer service, and marketing assistance.

Interactions with Other Users


If you interact with other users of the Site, those users may see your name, profile photo, and descriptions of your activity, including sending invitations to other users, chatting with other users, liking posts, and/or following blogs.

Online Postings


When you post comments, contributions, or other content to the Site, your posts may be viewed by all users and may be publicly distributed outside the Site in perpetuity.

Third-Party Advertisers


We may use third-party advertising companies to serve ads when you visit the Site. These companies may use information about your visits to the Site and other websites that are contained in web cookies in order to provide advertisements about goods and services of interest to you. I use Google Adwords for random ads, and I have an affiliate program with 3 hand-picked businesses/products, and I believe they will give you some cookies. 

Sale or Bankruptcy


If we reorganize or sell all or a portion of our assets, undergo a merger, or are acquired by another entity, we may transfer your information to the successor entity. If we go out of business or enter bankruptcy, your information would be an asset transferred or acquired by a third party. You acknowledge that such transfers may occur and that the transferee may decline honor commitments we made in this Privacy Policy.

We are not responsible for the actions of third parties with whom you share personal or sensitive data, and we have no authority to manage or control third-party solicitations. If you no longer wish to receive correspondence, emails or other communications from third parties, you are responsible for contacting the third party directly.

SECURITY OF YOUR INFORMATION


We use administrative, technical, and physical security measure to help protect your personal information. While we have taken reasonable steps to secure the personal information you provide to us, please be aware that despite our efforts, no security measures are perfect or impenetrable, and no method of data transmission can be guaranteed against any interception or other type of misuse. Any information disclosed online is vulnerable to interception and misuse by unauthorized parties. Therefore, we cannot guarantee complete security if you provide personal information.'

If there is a breach of personal information, the only thing I'll have to contact you about it is the email list for those who subscribed. If you don't provide me your email, and I'm hacked, I have no idea how to reach you to let you know that.

POLICY FOR CHILDREN


We do not knowingly accept, request, or solicit information from children or knowingly market to children under the age of 16. If you become aware of any data we have collected from children under age 16, please contact us using the contact information provided below.

CALIFORNIA PRIVACY RIGHTS


California Civil Code Section 1798.83, also known as the “Shine The Light” law, permits our users who are California residents to request and obtain from us, once a year and free of charge, information about categories of personal information (if any) with other businesses for their own direct marketing use. If applicable, this information would include the categories of customer information as well as the names and addresses of any businesses with which customer information was shared during the prior calendar year (e.g., requests made in 2018 will receive information regarding 2017 sharing activities). If you are a California resident and would like to make such a request, please submit your request in writing to us using the contact information provided below.

If you are under 18 years of age, reside in California, and have a registered account with the Site, you have the right to request removal of unwanted data that you publicly post on the Site.
