I value your privacy, dear reader!
So, you can rest assured that the only information I store on my website, maggiefitzroy.com, is information that you have freely given me. To learn more about what information I collect, and how it is used, read on…
First, when someone posts a comment on this site, their name, email address, and IP address are automatically collected. If you ever decide you’d like a comment that you made removed, just send me a note through the form on my contact page and I’ll gladly honor your request.
Second, I use CleanTalk to protect my site from spam. CleanTalk compares information with known spammers. It only stores your information for a few days in order to do that. In addition, my site is protected by Wordfence, which keeps an eye on things, and collects data on bad guys who might try to attack it. The data does move into and out of the European Union.
Third, my Newsletter is connected to my website. When someone signs up, their name, IP address (the address of their computer), and email address are collected. My newsletter provides readers with my latest news, and in order to help me know what readers like to see, collects information about how many newsletters are opened. If you ever decide you want to stop receiving my newsletter, just click the unsubscribe button at the bottom.
Fourth, my website includes a Contact Form, which requests your name, email address, the subject, and message you wish to send me. The system also collects your IP address in order to check for spam. I receive the message via email. The information is not stored on my website and the data is sent through normal email channels only.
Sixth, international users be advised that this site is owned and hosted in the United States. By providing your information to it, you are consenting to the transfer of your information to the United States for processing and maintenance in accordance with this privacy notice. You are also consenting to the application of United States law in all matters concerning the site.
Last, remember this is a public website. That means anyone can read posted comments, so use caution when posting sensitive information. And remember, if you ever want to remove a comment, just send me a message on the Contact Form.
Thank you, and thanks for visiting maggiefitzroy.com!
