This page is here to explain what I store on this website about visitors. To comply with the European Union’s GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation, here is their site: https://www.eugdpr.org or the Wikipedia page here.)
I store nothing but your email address and whatever name you give me with your comment you make, and that is only stored if you make a comment. I do not collect these addresses for resale or other usage – I have them only to verify you are a real person, or to contact you if there is a problem with your comment.
This site only stores a cookie on your computer to allow your computer to find and quickly identify, visually, comments you may have made. If I ever get it working again, it may even store color schemes you may set – I like to have a light and dark option available to readers to be easier on your eyes. But I haven’t gotten it working for years – I keep playing with it.
If you request it, I can delete your comments and email address from this website. I currently (April, 2018) would have to do so manually and will have no problem doing so if you request it, but I expect WordPress to come out with an option to automatically do so in the near future.
This website also ties into the Gravatar system to allow cross-internet identification of avatars. I cannot control any information they have about you, and I haven’t seen my website harvest anything about visitors from that service and store anything other than a token/username. Any deletion request from you would just remove your comment and that linking token/username. If you really want to be thorough, you may need to contact them to be complete with your deletion request.
I have options to share things from my website to your Facebook and Twitter feeds, as well as some other social networks – but I do not store information about how you shared anything from my site to your feeds. I just have a mechanism that hands off a link to those services, so I do not believe that you should have any worries about that.
More information about the WordPress and Gravatar services I use can be found here: https://automattic.com/privacy/.
In short, this website is about me sharing with you. I really don’t want to steal or even use your information, and I hope this explains it.
