When subscribing, commenting, or registering on my site, as appropriate, you may be asked to enter your name, e-mail address, or other details to help you with your experience. I collect information from you when you register on the website, subscribe to my newsletter, comment on a post, fill out a form, or enter information onto my site in any way. I may use the information I collect from you when you register, sign up for my newsletter, comment on a post, respond to a survey or marketing communication, send me a message, surf the website, or use certain other site features in the following ways:
- To personalize your experience and to allow me to deliver the type of content and product offerings in which you are most interested.
- To allow me to better serve you in responding to your questions, suggestions, or requests.
- To send periodic e-mails regarding new content, products, or services.
Section Two: Information Protection
Your personal information will not be shared with any other individual, company, or third party unless legal implications or site policies deem it necessary. I use a periodic malware scanning software on my website to protect your information. I do not use an SSL certificate.
Section Three: Cookies
You can choose to have your computer warn you each time a cookie is being sent, or you can choose to turn off all cookies. You can do this through your browser’s settings. Since every browser is a little different, look at your browser’s help menu to learn the correct way to modify your cookies.
Please note that if you disable cookies, some site features may be disabled. This may negatively affect your user experience.
Section Four: Third Party Disclosure
I do not sell, trade, or otherwise transfer to outside parties your Personally Identifiable Information unless I provide users with advance notice. This does not include website hosting partners and other parties who assist me in operating my website, conducting my business, or serving my users, so long as those parties agree to keep this information confidential. I may also release information when it’s release is appropriate to comply with the law, enforce my site policies, or protect mine or others’ rights, property, or safety. However, non-personally identifiable visitor information may be provided to other parties for marketing, advertising, SEO, or other uses.
Occasionally, at my discretion, I may include or offer third-party products or services on my website. These third-party sites have separate and independent privacy policies. Therefore, I have no responsibility or liability for the content and activities of these linked sites. Nonetheless, I seek to protect the integrity of my site and welcome any feedback about these third-party sites.
I, along with third-party vendors such as Google, use first-party cookies (such as the Google Analytics cookies) and third-party cookies (such as the DoubleClick cookie) or other third-party identifiers together to compile data regarding user interactions as they pertain to my website, primarily regarding website traffic and data.
Section Five: California Online Privacy Protection Act
According to CalOPPA, I agree to the following:
- Users can visit my site anonymously.
Section Six: DNT and Behavioral Tracking
I honor Do Not Track signals and do not track, plant cookies, or use advertising when a Do Not Track (DNT) browser mechanism is in place. It is also important to note that I do not allow third-party behavioral tracking.
Section Seven: COPPA (Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act)
When it comes to the collection of personal information from children under the age of 13 years old, the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) puts parents in control. The Federal Trade Commission, the United States’ consumer protection agency, enforces the COPPA rule, which spells out what operators of websites and online services must do to protect children’s privacy and safety online. I do not specifically market to children under the age of 13 years old. By entering your information on my site, you are signifying that you are over 13 years of age and understand the implications of the COPPA laws.
Section Eight: Fair Information Practices
In order to be in line with Fair Information Practices, I will take the following responsive action, should a data breach occur. I will notify you via e-mail within seven business days, and I will notify all users via in-site notification within one business day.
I also agree to the Individual Redress Principle, which requires that individuals have the right to legally pursue enforceable rights against data collectors and processors who fail to adhere to the law. This principle requires not only that individuals have enforceable rights against data users, but also that individuals have recourse to courts or government agencies to investigate and/or prosecute non-compliance by data processors.
Section Nine: CAN-SPAM Act
The CAN-SPAM Act is a law that sets the rules for commercial e-mail, establishes requirements for commercial messages, gives recipients the right to have e-mails stopped from being sent to them, and spells out tough penalties for violations.
I collect your e-mail address in order to send information to you, respond to inquiries, messages, and requests, and to market to my mailing list.
In order to be in accordance with CAN-SPAM, I agree to the following:
- Not using false or misleading subjects or e-mail addresses.
- Identifying any applicable message as an advertisement in some reasonable way.
- Including the physical location of my business or site headquarters.
- Monitoring third-party e-mail marketing services for compliance, if one is used.
- Honoring opt-out/unsubscribe requests in a timely manner.
- Allowing users to unsubscribe by using the link at the bottom of each e-mail.
If at any time you would like to unsubscribe from receiving future e-mails, you may follow the link at the bottom of any e-mail. You can also e-mail me directly. I will promptly remove you from all correspondence.
