What Personal Data Is Collected and Why
When visitors leave comments on this website this site collects the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.
When you fill out and submit a contact form on this site, information such as your name, email address, phone number, IP address, and browser user agent may be collected and stored in this sites database for an indefinite amount of time. Your name, email, phone number, and similar information is used solely for customer service purposes. IP addresses may be checked against to prevent spam only, and browser user agents may be used for troubleshooting technical issues only. I do not use any of this information for marketing purposes, nor will I ever sell this information to a third party.
How Long This Site Retains Your Data
If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so I can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.
Data collected from contact forms on this website is retained for in indefinite period of time for customer service purposes. Information such as IP addresses, browser user agents and related information may be stored for no longer than one (1) year.
Who I Share Your Data With
Outside of the Google Analytics service, your IP address and browser user agent may be shared with additional third party service providers that provide functional services to this website, such as security scans.
How I Protect Your Data
I take the security and protection of your information seriously. I have taken every precaution within reason to ensure that your information and time spent on this website is safe, secure, as anonymous as possible (with the exception of data collected that you willingly provide such as your name, email, phone number, etc. via a contact form) and meets the purpose of your visit.
All traffic sent and received on this website is protected and encrypted using SSL (Secure Sockets Layer). All potentially personally identifiable information such as IP addresses is anonymized (the full IP is not shared) when possible. Third party security services and scans are utilized to ensure traffic to and from this website is not malicious. Security scans are also in place to ensure that the very code that creates this website, as well as its database, is free from malicious code and operations.
The IP address of visitors, user ID of logged in users, and username of login attempts are conditionally logged to check for malicious activity and to protect the site from specific kinds of attacks. Examples of conditions when logging occurs include login attempts, log out requests, requests for suspicious URLs, changes to site content, and password updates. This information is retained for no more than sixty (60) days.
What Data Breach Procedures I Have In Place
The security features in use on this website are aimed at preventing abusive and malicious parties from ever gaining access to this website in the first place, but in the event that it does happen I have procedures in place, both automated and personal, to identify the offending code. The code will be automatically isolated, and the origin IP address banned from this website as well as any IP addresses seen to be in constant communication with that IP address. File and database scans will automatically be performed to ensure that the malicious code leaves no footprint behind, and members of our administrative team will personally review the website and database as well for evidence of intrusion.
What Rights You Have Over Your Data
If you have an account on this site, have left comments, or filled out a contact form 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.
