Privacy Policy

Who runs this site?

Sheridan Parsons - see the about me page here.

What information do I collect?

I collect information from you (name and email) when you register on my site, and you may supply data when you participate in the website by commenting on the content. You may, however, visit our site without registering.

When registered and posting, my hosting service (ghost.org) may record the IP address that the post originated from. They may also retain server logs which include the IP address of requests to their server. Please refer to Ghost for details of their privacy policy.

What do I use your information for?

Any of the information collected from you may be used in one of the following ways:

  • To personalize user experience — your information helps us to better respond to your individual needs.
  • To improve my site.
  • To improve my customer service and respond to your requests and support needs.
  • To send periodic emails including newsletters, account information, or responses to your enquiries, requests or questions.

How do I protect your information?

Ghost implements a variety of security measures to maintain the safety of your personal information. Please refer to their details.

What is my data retention policy?

I retain your name and email while you are subscribed to my newsletter or while you have any active mailing list subscriptions. I regularly delete inactive names and email addresses, or I can erase this data on request.

I am not responsible or liabile for data held on server logs. Please refer to Ghost.

Do I use cookies?

Yes. Cookies are small files that a site or its service provider transfers to your computer’s hard drive through your Web browser (if you allow). These cookies enable the site to recognize your browser and, if you have a registered account, associate it with your registered account.

I use cookies to understand and save your preferences for future visits and compile aggregate data about site traffic and site interaction so that I can improve the site in the future, e.g. to find out what pages are most popular. I contract with a third-party service provider (Google Analytics) to assist me in better understanding my site visitors. These service providers are not permitted to use the information collected on our behalf except to help us conduct and improve our business.

Do I disclose any information to outside parties?

I do not sell, trade, or otherwise transfer to outside parties your personally identifiable information. Note that my hosting service, Ghost, has its own Privacy Policy. I may also release your information when I believe release is appropriate to comply with the law, enforce our site policies, or protect ours or others rights, property, or safety.

Occasionally, at my discretion, I may include or offer third party products or services on our site. These third party sites have separate and independent privacy policies. I therefore have no responsibility or liability for the content and activities of these linked sites. Nonetheless, I seek to protect the integrity of our site and welcome any feedback about these sites.

Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act Compliance

My site and services are all directed to people who are at least 13 years old or older. If this server is in the USA, and you are under the age of 13, per the requirements of COPPA (Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act 2), do not use this site.

By using my site, you consent to my website privacy policy.
