What personal data we collect and why we collect it

None, unless you fill out a request for information form, or purchase something from the site. 

Contact forms

If you fill out a contact form, I save your contact information until we have concluded any business we might have with each other. I collect a minimal amount of contact information in order to secure your privacy. 


We do not set cookies. 

Embedded content from other websites

Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website. 

These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracking your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website. 

Who we share your data with

No one. Ever. 

How long we retain your data

If, for some reason, you give me your data, I will keep it only as long as necessary to fulfill your request (I assume the only way I would get your data is if you contact me to request information, purchase a course subscription, or other resource). I am happy to remove your data at your request. 

What rights you have over your data

If you have an account on this site, or have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes. 

Where we send your data
