Did you read my Disclosure page, and just couldn't get enough of the exciting legal info? Well here's some more stuff I'm required to tell you about your privacy.
(Yes, I'm being sarcastic, but no, I don't think your privacy is a joke. I hate spammers and shady people, so I'm sharing this info with you so you know that I'm not either one.)
Information Collection And Use
Personal information is defined as data that can be used to identify you, and possibly contact you. I maintain strict standards when I work with personal information. Anonymous information is information that cannot be used to identify you.When browsing my website, you may fill out an ActiveCampaign web form that asks for your name and email address. The information you enter into is used to contact you through periodic newsletters, to share recent blog posts, and keep you informed on any other fun updates or giveaways on my website. At any time you may unsubscribe using the link at the bottom of any email sent to you. If you're having trouble, you can email me directly at [email protected] and I can remove your data.
The security of your personal information is important to me. Please keep in mind that no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure. While I strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your personal information, I cannot guarantee its absolute security.
Links To/From Other Sites
Disclosure to Third Parties
I may use third party companies to aide me in providing you with a better experience. For example, I use an email marketing tool called ActiveCampaign to better connect with you. I always ensure that the third parties I use have the highest quality security standards in place.
While it's super-fun to quit your job and run a blog full of free content and delicious recipes, it unfortunately doesn't pay the bills. Womp womp. Since I still have to pull my weight around here, and bankruptcy sucks, you'll see some ads on my site. I try to keep these as non-intrusive on your browsing experience as possible, and the content should never be offensive or inappropriate. If you see something that is, please bring it to my attention so I can remove it.
