What personal data we collect and why we collect it

I collect your name, email address and other information from you when you subscribe to a newsletter, complete my contact form, or comment on my blog.

EU users must provide affirmative consent when opting in to my newsletter. Either an unchecked checkbox on each opt-in form, or a page after the form is submitted, is present for subscribers to verify that they are consenting to receive marketing emails. If it remains unchecked, you will still receive the opt-in incentive but will not be subscribed to any lists.

I also collect information about visitors who comment via Akismet anti-spam service. This information includes the commenter’s IP address, user agent, referrer, and site URL (along with other information directly provided by the commenter such as their name, username, email address, and the comment itself).


I LOVE and welcome your comments on my blog posts, even if you don’t completely agree with me. However, please be respectful– remember– I’m a real person! I reserve the right to remove any comments at my discretion and without notice that do not contribute to the discussion or are rude, spam, discuss illegal subject matter, etc.

When visitors leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.

An anonymized string created from your email address (also called a hash) may be provided to the Gravatar service to see if you are using it. The Gravatar service privacy policy is available here: https://automattic.com/privacy/. After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.

This site uses Akismet to reduce spam. Learn how your comment data is processed.
