Privacy policy

The following information explains how my site collects visitor data and conforms to the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). Because my site was created using WordPress and is hosted by WordPress, the cookies and any plug-ins are their own.  Here’s WordPress’s privacy policy. 

My experience of using WordPress on this site is that visitors like yourself can willingly subscribe or unsubscribe to follow me. Interestingly, I notice that I can’t stop someone from subscribing. I have basic statistical data, like what country a visitor is from, but I don’t know the person’s identify (name, email, address or other identifying data). I personally don’t store this data, and because it is so basic, it’s pretty useless anyway.

If you have any questions or concerns, or if you do not agree and would like me to remove your information, please contact me.

I do not knowingly collect personally identifiable information from anyone under the age of 16. If it is discovered that I have collected PII from someone under age 16 I will promptly ask WordPress to delete that information.

Data Integrity; Use of the Information

I use the personal information collected in ways that are compatible with the purposes for which it was intended to be used: to respond to your inquiries about my copywriting services. If you wish to opt out of my use of your personally identifiable information see the “Your Consent; Opting out” section below.
