Privacy Policy

Updated 5/1/2018

I value your privacy.

The only information I collect is information that you provide freely via the contact form. In addition, to prevent spam, a quick comparison of your data to that of known spammers is conducted by a third party, Akismet. During this comparison and transmission, your data may be transmitted through the US, Canada, or other countries. All parties in this transaction are GDPR compliant and take your privacy very seriously.

In addition, all data transmitted to or from my website is transferred using SSL, an encryption technology designed to protect your data in transit.

My site is also protected by aggressive anti-hacking software intended to protect both your privacy and the integrity of the site.

Because I value your privacy so much, I do not store any personal information from my visitors on my site. If you choose to contact me, you are sending me an email. That data is erased from the site as soon as it is sent.

Children

The contact form on this site is not intended to be used by anyone under the age of 16 without parental consent.

Website Activity Tracking

My hosting company does track basic data on those who access the site. The data stored in this manner is not traceable back to any individual and is deliberately generalized. It provides me with information related to the country of origin of site visitors, what browser they are using, and how long they stayed on the site.

This tracking does not include any personal information.

Use of Cookies

I use cookies on this Site to personalize the Site. A cookie is a small text file that is placed on your hard disk by a Web page server. Cookies cannot be used to run programs or deliver viruses to your computer. Cookies are uniquely assigned to you, and can only be read by a Web server in the domain that issued the cookie to you. One of the primary purposes of cookies is to provide a convenience feature to save you time. For example, if you personalize a web page, or navigate within a site, a cookie helps the site to recall your specific information on subsequent visits. This simplifies the process of delivering relevant content, eases site navigation, and so on. When you return to the Web site, the information you previously provided can be retrieved, so you can easily use the site’s features that you customized.

Web beacons, also known as clear gif technology, or action tags, may be used to assist in delivering the cookie. This technology is a tool used to compile aggregated statistics about web site usage, such as how many visitors clicked on key elements (such as links or graphics) on a Web page, blog or a newsletter. I may share aggregated site statistics with partner companies who have provided customization software for use on the site. No private or personal information is transferred in this way.

You have the ability to accept or decline cookies. Many Web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can modify your browser settings to decline cookies if you prefer. If you choose to decline cookies, you may not be able to fully experience the interactive features of this or other Web sites you visit.

Changes to this Statement

I may occasionally update this privacy statement. When I do, I will also revise the “last updated” date at the top of the privacy statement. I encourage you to periodically review this privacy statement to stay informed about how I am helping to protect the personal information I collect. Your continued use of the service constitutes your agreement to this privacy statement and any updates.

A Note to International Users

By providing your information to the Site, you are consenting to the transfer of your information to the United States for processing and maintenance in accordance with this Privacy Notice. You are also consenting to the application of Canadian law in all matters concerning the Site.
