Privacy Policy

This privacy policy explains how we collect, use, and share your data.

Last updated: September 2018

We rely on a number of legal bases to collect, use, and share your information. Our service provider (at this time, WordPress) collects and stores some personally identifiable information (“your data”) as part of their routine business activities. They use data collected from traffic among other things to determine statistics.

Personally identifiable information includes but may not be limited to usernames and contact information (e-mail addresses, website URLs, IP addresses, etc.). We can view some of it through our website dashboard, but we do not collect or store your data for business uses. This means we will not give out or sell your data unless required to for specific situations.

The specific situations when we may use your data include 1) responding to comments on this site or by email; 2) complying with the Terms of Use set by our service provider (for example to address a violation of their policies); 3) preventing, investigating, recording and addressing security or technical issues (such as protecting the safety of ourselves or others) or fraud, abuse, and other illegal activity (for example contacting authorities and/or legal consultants for advice); and, if necessary, 4) complying with court orders and legal obligations or legal claims.

We will not give your data to any other third parties unless that is necessary: 1) to comply with the Terms of Use set by our service provider; 2) in connection with security, technical issues or fraud, abuse, and other illegal activity; or 3) if needed in connection with legal obligations or claims.

We will share your data with these third parties only to the extent necessary to fulfill our obligations. You acknowledge that interacting with this site gives us your informed consent to do so.

The personally identifiable information we have access to through this website’s dashboard will be kept confidential and protected by reasonable safeguards. This means that we have safe browsing habits, and we do not leave our accounts logged on when we are not present. We also protect and monitor our devices from unauthorized access, viruses, and malware. Our service provider is responsible for the security of their operations; contact them for details.

Note that we live and work in Massachusetts, United States. As a result, your data may fall under a jurisdiction with different data protection and government surveillance laws than ours. Also note that as as part of their service to us, our service provider may store and process your information through third-party hosting services in the US and other jurisdictions.

We do use statistics from our service provider to evaluate and analyze visits and other activity on this site. Only numerical data and not personally identifiable information will be used in such analyses.

If you reside in certain territories, including the EU, you have a number of rights in relation to your personal information: 1) you may have the right to access and receive a copy of your data; 2) you may also have rights to change, restrict our use of, or delete your data (in which case we will delete your data unless we have compelling and legitimate grounds to continue using that information or if it is needed for legal reasons); 3) you can object to receiving marketing or promotional messages from us after providing prior express consent to receive them; and 4) if you reside in the EU and wish to raise a concern about our use of your data, you have the right to do so with your local data protection authority. If you wish to access, correct, or delete personal information held by WordPress, contact them directly.

For purposes of EU data protection law, we, Erik Jensen and Eppu Jensen, are the data controllers of your personal information.

If you have questions, please contact us via the contact form at this site.

There may also be cookies (=files that stay on your computer and provide a better browsing experience). You can turn them off in your browser if you are not comfortable with them.

WordPress has its own Privacy Policy (Automattic privacy policy); please refer to it for how they collect, use and share your data. If you wish to access, correct or delete personal information held by WordPress, contact them directly.
