What personal data we collect and why we collect it

Contact forms

If you fill out and send a message through the contact form, the information you provide will be sent via email. You will opt-in to having your name, email and message saved. This is so we may get in touch with you in response to your message, as well as to keep in touch in the future. Look, I’m just a guy. If you’re reaching out through the website, I’m going to reach back out to you in the interest of providing you with my services. Pretty simple, really. And thanks for reaching out. And if you’re really reading this privacy policy page in so much detail – thank you again for being so interested!

Cookies

If you leave a comment on our 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.

If you visit our site, we may set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.

When you log in, we will also set up several cookies to save your login information and your screen display choices. Login cookies last for two days, and screen options cookies last for a year. If you select “Remember Me”, your login will persist for two weeks. If you log out of your account, the login cookies will be removed.

If you edit or publish an article, an additional cookie will be saved in your browser. This cookie includes no personal data and simply indicates the post ID of the article you just edited. It expires after 1 day.

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

Basic analytic information may be collected as to how you interact with the website. This information is completely anonymous and is only used so we may improve how the site operates in the future.

Who we share your data with

Brian (that’s me), and that’s it. It’s just you and me, friend.

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.

For users that register or reach out through our website, we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.

What rights you have over your data

The only data I have is the data you’ve provided willingly through the contact form or email sign-up. If you want me to pretend you never filled out a contact form and delete your contact information, that’s too bad. Just let me know, and I will sadly oblige.

Where we send your data

Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service. Messages sent through our contact pages are validated via google captcha.

Your contact information

It will only be used in order to contact you about your inquiry.

Additional information

Any additional information you provide via the website is provided at your sole discretion with the understanding that it will be transmitted to the administrators of this website.

How we protect your data

As best we can. At best the only data we collect is your name and email address.

What data breach procedures we have in place

We don’t really. This isn’t a bank. I’m just a guy.

What third parties we receive data from

The same third parties we all receive data from. Google, our gossipy neighbors, and God.

What automated decision making and/or profiling we do with user data

None.
