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.
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 of 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, either 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.
The data collected about you is stored on the platform that hosts this site and by Google Analytics. They are the ones collecting the information to begin with. I just happen to be able to take a peek at it occasionally.
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.
If you don’t want me to collect or store information about you, I have no idea how to stop it, as I don’t personally do it. Contact Google to complain to them about it. I seriously don’t know how to help you with that.
If you have any questions about this policy, you can email me your questions. Keep in mind that, as I mentioned above, you will give me your email and name when you send me an email with your name on it. For some reason, the Europeans thought I needed to spell that out for you. Looks like they have no faith in your ability to reason logically.
