Privacy Policy

Howdy!

There are many little pieces of data that are collected by this website for the purposes of you visiting and interacting on this website, including reading, commenting, and purchasing items. Some of these policies will not apply to you, and many of the policies that do apply to you are (in my opinion) boring and have to do with computer/internet stuff that neither you nor I will ever see or even know about. Regardless, this page will cover all the pertinent legal details, in alphabetical order.

Thank you for visiting our website!

Blessings,

Cookies

If you leave a comment on this 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 have an account and you log in to this site, 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 are also set up 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.

Comment Likes

(This feature is only accessible to users logged in to WordPress.com.)

Data Used:

In order to process a comment like, the following information is used: WordPress.com user ID/username (you must be logged in to use this feature), the local site-specific user ID (if the user is signed in to the site on which the like occurred), and a true/false data point that tells us if the user liked a specific comment. If you perform a like action from one of our mobile apps, some additional information is used to track the activity: IP address, user agent, timestamp of event, blog ID, browser language, country code, and device info.

Activity Tracked:

Comment likes.

Contact Forms

Data Used:

If Akismet is enabled on the site (it is), the contact form submission data — IP address, user agent, name, email address, website, and message — is submitted to the Akismet service (also owned by Automattic) for the sole purpose of spam checking. The actual submission data is stored in the database of the site on which it was submitted and is emailed directly to the owner of the form (i.e. the site author who published the page on which the contact form resides). This email will include the submitter’s IP address, timestamp, name, email address, website, and message.

Data Synced (?):

Post and post meta data associated with a user’s contact form submission. If Akismet is enabled on the site, the IP address and user agent originally submitted with the comment are synced, as well, as they are stored in post meta.

How This Matters To You:

If you choose to contact the owner of this website via our “contact form,” the data that is collected by the form on this website includes: the name you enter into the contact form, the email address you entered into the contact form, the message you send to me, and the IP address that is being used from the location where you are accessing the internet. We use this information only for the purpose of responding to the messages you choose to send to us. We keep this information indefinitely, but we do not use this information for any other reason, and we will never sell your information.

We also will never give away your information, except in the case of a security threat. For example, if your message is threatening the life or safety of ourselves or another, the information collected about you by this website and by the contact form will be given to the proper authorities.

Embedded content from other websites

Articles or pages 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.

These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracking your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.

Google Analytics

Data Used:

Please refer to the appropriate Google Analytics documentation for the specific type of data it collects. For sites running WooCommerce (also owned by Automattic) and this feature simultaneously and having all purchase tracking explicitly enabled, purchase events will send Google Analytics the following information: order number, product id and name, product category, total cost, and quantity of items purchased. Google Analytics does offer IP anonymization, which can be enabled by the site owner.

Activity Tracked:

This feature sends page view events (and potentially video play events) over to Google Analytics for consumption. For sites running WooCommerce-powered stores, some additional events are also sent to Google Analytics: shopping cart additions and removals, product listing views and clicks, product detail views, and purchases. Tracking for each specific WooCommerce event needs to be enabled by the site owner.

Gravatar Hovercards

Data Used:

This feature will send a hash of the user’s email address (if logged in to the site or WordPress.com — or if they submitted a comment on the site using their email address that is attached to an active Gravatar profile) to the Gravatar service (also owned by Automattic) in order to retrieve their profile image.

Infinite Scroll

Data Used:

In order to record page views via WordPress.com Stats (which must be enabled for page view tracking here to work) with additional loads, the following information is 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.

Activity Tracked:

Page views will be tracked with each additional load (i.e. when you scroll down to the bottom of the page and a new set of posts loads automatically). If the site owner has enabled Google Analytics to work with this feature, a page view event will also be sent to the appropriate Google Analytics account with each additional load.

Jetpack Comments

General Information:

When visitors leave comments on this site, the data shown in the comments form is collected by the website, as well as the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string. This is to help with spam detection.  This website also collects information about visitors via Akismet anti-spam service. The information this service collects typically 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). This is to help with spam detection.

Gravatar:

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/. If you use the Gravatar service, after approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.

How this Matters to You:

If you comment on any page of this website, the only information that is made public is your username, your Gravatar link (if a Gravatar is being used), and the comment itself.

The owner of this website is able to view your IP address and your email address, but this information is not made public. The owner of this website will not use this information to contact you without your permission, nor will the website owner sell such information to third parties. This information will also never be given away, except in the event of a security threat. For example, if your comment is threatening the life or safety of ourselves or another, the information collected about you by this website and by the comment form will be given to the proper authorities.

If you post in the comments section on this website, any personally identifiable information you share in that comment is visible to others. This information that you submit to this website can be read, collected, or used by other individuals to send you unsolicited messages. This website and the owner of this website are not responsible for the personally identifiable information you choose to submit in these forums.

By posting any comment, you are giving the owner of this website permission to use your comment in any way we see fit. For instance, we may choose to address your comments on a blog post, either in full or in part, or make your comments visible in a more public way (such as, share a testimonial or review that you leave in the comment form).

Likes

(This feature is only accessible to users logged in to WordPress.com.)

Data Used:

In order to process a post like action, the following information is used: IP address, WordPress.com user ID, WordPress.com username, WordPress.com-connected site ID (on which the post was liked), post ID (of the post that was liked), user agent, timestamp of event, browser language, country code.

Activity Tracked:

Post likes.

Mobile Theme

Data Used:

A visitor’s preference on viewing the mobile version of a site.

Activity Tracked:

A cookie (akm_mobile) is stored for 3.5 days to remember whether or not a visitor of the site wishes to view its mobile version. Learn more about this cookie.

Protect

Data Used:

In order to check login activity and potentially block fraudulent attempts, the following information is used: attempting user’s IP address, attempting user’s email address/username (i.e. according to the value they were attempting to use during the login process), and all IP-related HTTP headers attached to the attempting user.

Activity Tracked:

Failed login attempts (these include IP address and user agent). We also set a cookie (jpp_math_pass) for 1 day to remember if/when a user has successfully completed a math captcha to prove that they’re a real human. Learn more about this cookie.

Data Synced (?):

Failed login attempts, which contain the user’s IP address, attempted username or email address, and user agent information.

Data Used:

Any of the visitor-chosen search filters and query data in order to process a search request on the WordPress.com servers.

WooCommerce Services

(see the next section)

WordPress.com Stats

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: The site owner does not have access to any of this information via this feature. For example, a site owner can see that a specific post has 285 views, but he/she 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.

Activity Tracked:

Post and page views, video plays (if videos are hosted by WordPress.com), outbound link clicks, referring URLs and search engine terms, and country. When this module is enabled, Jetpack also tracks performance on each page load that includes the Javascript file used for tracking stats. This is exclusively for aggregate performance tracking across Jetpack sites in order to make sure that our plugin and code is not causing performance issues. This includes the tracking of page load times and resource loading duration (image files, Javascript files, CSS files, etc.). The site owner has the ability to force this feature to honor DNT settings of visitors. By default, DNT is currently not honored.

How long we retain your data

If you leave a comment on this website, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so this website can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.

We retain contact form entries and customer purchase records for a period of at least ten years. This is for legal reasons, including for tax obligations that we have, as well as for security reasons.

What rights you have over your data

If you have an account on this site, or have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.

We (WooCommerce) collect information about you during the checkout process on our store.

When you purchase from us, we’ll ask you to provide information including your name, billing address, shipping address, email address, phone number, credit card/payment details and optional account information like username and password. We’ll use this information for purposes, such as, to:

For example, we will store order information for a period of at least 10 years for tax and accounting purposes. This includes your name, email address and billing and shipping addresses.

We will also store comments or reviews, if you choose to leave them.

Who on our team has access
