What personal data I collect and why I collect it
I collect personal information such as email addresses, IP addresses, and names. This information is collected for customer service purposes.
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.
If you upload images to the website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the website.
If you send an email through the contact form on my website, I collect data such as email addresses, IP addresses, and names. This data is not used for marketing purposes and will not be sold.
If you subscribe to my newsletter, your email address will be collected. This data will not be sold and you may unsubscribe at any time. To unsubscribe, click “Change your profile” and then “Cancel your subscription”.
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.
If you visit my login page, a temporary cookie will be set 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, several cookies will also be set 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.
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.
Data Used: IP address, WordPress.com user ID (if logged in), WordPress.com username (if logged in), user agent, visiting URL, referring URL, timestamp of event, browser language, country code. Important: I do not have access to any of this information via this feature. For example, I can see that a specific post has 285 views, but I cannot see which specific users/accounts viewed that post. Stats logs — containing visitor IP addresses and WordPress.com usernames (if available) — are retained by Automattic for 28 days and are used for the sole purpose of powering this feature.
How long I retain your data
If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so my website can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.
For users that register on my website (if any), I 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
If you have left comments, 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.
If you’ve subscribed to my newsletter, you may unsubscribe.
Where I send your data
Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.
If you submit a drawing, poem, and/or short story (“work”, “submission”), you are giving me permission to post your work. I do not claim any ownership or responsibility for your work beyond that; you retain ownership of your work and you are free to do with it as you wish. If, at any time, you wish for me to remove or edit your published submission, you must let me know by sending me an email with the email address you originally used to send your submission(s). By submitting, you are acknowledging that the work you have entered here is your own and not plagiarized or borrowed. Lastly, by submitting your work, you agree to these terms.
