Cookies & Tracking
This site collects cookies. This shows me things like your location, gender, age, and other demographical information. I use this to see who you are and where you are from. Honestly, I just like knowing where my readers/viewers are from.
If you visit the login page, I will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.
When you log in, I will also set up several cookies to save your login information and your screen display choices. Login cookies last for two days, and screen options cookies last for a year. If you select “Remember Me”, your login will persist for two weeks. If you log out of your account, the login cookies will be removed.
While Visiting the Shop
This site collects information about you during the checkout process in the online shop.
While you visit this site, the following information will be tracked:
Products you’ve viewed: The site uses this to, for example, show you products you’ve recently viewed
Location, IP address and browser type: This helps with estimating taxes and shipping
Shipping address: It is a line on the form to fill out. If you give me your address, I’ll have it.
When you purchase from this site, you will provide information including your name, billing address, shipping address, email address, phone number, credit card/payment details and account information like username and password. This will be used to:
- Send you information about your account and order
- Respond to your requests, including refunds and complaints
- Process payments and prevent fraud
- Set up your account for the store
- Comply with any legal obligations, such as calculating taxes
- Improve the store offerings
- Send you marketing messages, if you choose to receive them
- If you create an account, the site will have your name, address, email and phone number, which will be used to populate the checkout for future orders.
Generally information about you is stored for as long as needed for the purposes for which the data was collected and used, and the information isn’t legally required to continue to be kept. For example, the order information for 7 years for tax and accounting purposes. This includes your name, email address and billing and shipping addresses.
If you leave a review of the product(s) you purchased, that information will be stored, too.
This site accepts payments through PayPal. When processing payments, some of your data will be passed to PayPal, including information required to process or support the payment, such as the purchase total and billing information.
Due to the non-returnable nature of digital products once they’re downloaded, no refunds will be given on any digital products purchased from this site once they have been accessed. You may receive a full refund if you never access the materials you purchase, but once the materials have been downloaded, all sales are final.
None of the things sold on this site are physical copies of anything. Everything is digital, but apparently I have to have a shipping policy anyway to appease the social media gods. So here goes. I’ll ship your purchased items electronically via email.
Basically every article on this site includes 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.
If you request a password reset, your IP address will be included in the reset email.
For users that register on this website (if any), I also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Herr Antrim can also see and edit that information.
If you have an account on this site, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data this site holds about you, including any data you have provided to the site. You can also request that Herr Antrim erases any personal data this site holds about you. This does not include any data he is obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.
Who has access to your data
Currently Herr Antrim is the only person working on this site and everything that goes with it. Therefore he is the only one with access to your data.
I use Google Analytics. This collects general information about you when you first get to the site. Then it follows you around until you leave my site. It sounds creepy, but think of it like being in a store. An employee happens to be stocking shelves nearby. You see them, they see you. Neither of you know each other and they don’t care what your name is.
The information I collect on this site will never include your email address or your name unless you email me via the contact form or if you purchase something from my online store. This will obviously record your name, as it flat out asks for it on the form. If you don’t want me to know who you are or what your email address is, lie to me about your name or create an extra email account with a fake name just to communicate with me. It’s what all the cool kids are doing nowadays.
If at any point you give me your email address either by emailing me or by signing up for my newsletter, I will send you stuff from time to time. Click “unsubscribe” at the bottom of the last email you got from me, if you don’t want to receive any more emails.
