privacy policy

We do not share personal information with third-parties nor do we store information we collect about your visit to this blog for use other than to analyze content performance through the use of cookies, which you can turn off at anytime by modifying your Internet browser's settings. We are not responsible for the republishing of the content found on this blog on other web sites or media without our permission. This privacy policy is subject to change without notice. You will be notified of sponsored posts, affiliate links, ads or formal partnerships as they are (rarely) included.

What information is being collected?

I will only ever ask for your first name and email, but Squarespace itself uses cookies and IP addresses for metrics and google analytics.

Who is collecting it?

Me, Squarespace, Google and Mailchimp (all of which have their own GDPR compliant guidelines).

How is it collected?

When you click to comment or sign up for posts via email, you will be asked for your email address and first name. 

Why is it being collected?

So we can keep in touch! Not for selling or trading of any kind with any third parties. If you wish to acquire my services as a copywriter, editor or graphic designer, I will likely ask for more information.

How will it be used?

To keep me apprised of website performance and metrics, who is viewing my site and how often, and what content gets the most page views and/or shares.

Who will it be shared with?

Me! And Squarespace, which hosts this blog; Google, which tracks google analytics and performance; and Mailchimp, which is my email list provider. All three platforms are GDPR compliant and are committed to helping you maintain privacy.

What will be the effect on you?

No effect, other than hearing from me occasionally via email posts and/or newsletters. You can opt out at any time via the contact form, clear (or choose not to track) your cookies, or unsubscribe from posts via email. I will never share your information with any third parties.

Is the intended use likely to cause individuals to object or complain? 

No, I intent this only for fun, community and a peek into our life overseas. If anything, my children will be the ones complaining. :)
