Privacy policy

The privacy of your data — and it is your data, not mine! — is a big deal. Below you'll find what data is collected and why, how the data is handled and the rights you have to your data. I'll never sell your data and you'll always be able to inspect or remove the data this site collects.

What data is collected and why

I seek to collect the minimum amount of data needed to support this website and make your experience great. All data is stored securely and protected by SSL technology.

1. Website interaction data and cookies

When you use this website, your browser automatically shares certain information such as which operating system and browser version you are using. That information, along with such data as which pages you are visiting, page load times and which website referred you is collected to aid me with improving the design of this website. By default, the analytics tool used collects geolocation data. All this data is anonymized and is not personally identifiable.

This site uses first-party cookies to store your preferences and some content in your browser, to make it easier for you to use this website and to support website analytics. A cookie is a piece of text stored by your browser to help it remember your information, site preferences, and more. You can adjust cookie retention settings in your own browser. To learn more about cookies, including how to view which cookies have been set and how to manage and delete them, please visit:

2. Email data and voluntary correspondence

This site uses a third-party email marketing service, and to support it, email address information is collected on this website. Providing an email address is voluntary and your explicit consent is required before any emails can be sent to you.

If you email any address associated with this domain (, my email service provider will store that correspondence, including your email address and any information you provide. Sending emails to these addresses is voluntary and by doing so, you will not be added to email marketing lists.

3. Anti-bot data

This site uses a CAPTCHA service as means of spam protection from bots. The CAPTCHA service may evaluate some information, such as your IP address and mouse movements, to assess whether you are a bot or an automated program.

4. Data that is not collected

This site does not collect any characteristics of protected classifications including age, race, gender, religion, sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, or physical and mental abilities or disabilities. You may provide these data voluntarily, such as if you include a pronoun preference in your email signature when sending emails. This site does not collect any biometric data.

5. Other

In the future, it is possible further data is required to maintain or improve the services offered by this website. Such data could include payment information such as credit card information, which would be provided voluntarily by users.

How the data is handled

I handle data only with clear purposes in mind or when requested, and I will never sell or give your data to third-parties unless legally obligated to do so.

1. To fulfil a request you initiated

If you request me to provide you with all the data collected of you, or if you'd like me to remove that data, I'll need to access the data to comply with the request.

2. To fulfil a request initiated by law enforcement

In the rare instance that law enforcement obligates me to do something with the data collected by this site, I will need to access the data to comply with the request.

3. To maintain or improve the services offered by this website

To send emails and improve the design of this website, I will access and use data collected by this site. If there are any issues or bugs with any technology used by this site, I may need to access data to investigate and fix the issues.

Your rights to your data

This site applies the same data rights to all users, regardless of their location. This site recognizes the rights granted in the European Union's General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), except if limited by applicable law. These rights include:

  • Right to Know. You have the right to know what personal information is collected, used, shared or sold. I outline both the categories and specific bits of data I collect, as well as how they are used, in this privacy policy.
  • Right of Access. This includes your right to access the personal information I gather about you, and your right to obtain information about the sharing, storage, security and processing of that information.
  • Right to Correction. You have the right to request correction of your personal information.
  • Right to Erasure / “To be Forgotten”. This is your right to request, subject to certain limitations under applicable law, that your personal information be erased from my possession and, by extension, all of my service providers.
  • Right to Complain. You have the right to make a complaint regarding my handling of your personal information with the appropriate supervisory authority. To identify your specific authority or find out more about this right, EU individuals should go to
  • Right to Restrict Processing. This is your right to request restriction of how and why your personal information is used or processed, including opting out of sale of personal information. (Again: I never have and never will sell your personal data.)
  • Right to Object. You have the right, in certain situations, to object to how or why your personal information is processed.
  • Right to Portability. You have the right to receive the personal information I have about you and the right to transmit it to another party.
  • Right to not be subject to Automated Decision-Making. You have the right to object and prevent any decision that could have a legal, or similarly significant, effect on you from being made solely based on automated processes. This right is limited, however, if the decision is necessary for performance of any contract between you and me, is allowed by applicable law, or is based on your explicit consent.
  • Right to Non-Discrimination. I do not and will not charge you a different amount to use any services, offer you different discounts, or give you a lower level of customer service because you have exercised your data privacy rights.

To exercise these rights, to inquire about these rights or to request assistance, please contact For requests to delete personal information or know what personal information has been collected, I will first verify your identity using a combination of at least two pieces of information already collected including your email address.

If you have not provided your email address, or other personally identifiable information, or corresponded with any email addresses associated with this site, I do not have personally identifiable information of you. Because of this, I may not be able to provide you with detailed data or delete all information that may have been collected of you.

If an authorized agent is corresponding on your behalf, I will first need written consent with a signature from you before proceeding. If you are in the EU, you can identify your specific authority to file a complaint or find out more about GDPR, at
