Data sharing and storage
I use Google Analytics and Google AdWords as third-party data processors.
I retain your personal data only for as long as necessary to fulfill the purposes outlined in this Privacy Notice or as required by law.
If you should contact me here, through Youtube or some other means, I will not sell or share your personal information to third parties, except according to the following terms. If you ask a question that may be relevant to other users, I my share your question along with my answer on a blog post, in a Youtube video or on other social media platforms on accounts I control. This way, I can avoid repeating the same answers to a bunch of different people.
If you post your question publicly, on platforms such as Youtube, the snippet may include your public username that is already available to the public. If via some other non-public method, I generally prefer to limit sharing of information. For example, I may include your first name or perhaps not include a name at all.
If required for context, I may include your full name, but I won’t share your full name along with local location information. When including your full name I may say “John Doe, from USA” or John Doe, from Michigan, USA”, but I won’t provide your full name with the city you are in or combine it with other information that makes it easy to identify who you are, where you live or where you work.
However, by communicating with me through this site, my social media accounts, email or by other means, you acknowledge that you are voluntarily providing me with information that may include personal information and that you grant me the irrevocable right to publish parts or all of the communication at my own discretion.
Things that I may publish: name, city, state, country. Things I won’t share: email, street address, post office box, phone number, the company you work for, your full name combined with local identifiable location information. I value privacy and I will try to be considerate of your privacy.
Embedded content from other websites
Articles 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.
I am committed to protecting your privacy. This Privacy Notice outlines the types of personal information I collect, how I use it, and the measures I take to safeguard your data.
