Let’s talk privacy. And no, I’m not talking about shutting the toilet door… And I’m not talking about those people who have the most cringingly personal phone calls – very loudly – while out in public. Those kind of things are annoying, but they don’t really hurt anyone. Well, someone may need therapy after the first one but…
I’m talking something way more insidious than that. Not that catching someone on the loo is insidious. However, this is something that’s been an issue for ages and is now finally getting sorted. I’m talking online privacy.
You and I, we don’t know each other, do we? I mean, I rant, you read, That’s about it. Some times you even leave me little messages. I like that. BUT!
I don’t know your name, or where you are, or any of those kind of things.
And that’s how I want to keep it.
I’m not going to collect any of your personal data. Nor is the website. In fact, the only way that’s going to happen is if you choose to fill in any forms on this website.
Here’s the grownup stuff…
- If you leave comments, the data is held by the WordPress.com website.
- There’s a contact form on the website. It’s connected to a Gmail account, So if you did ever fill it in, then that data would be shared with Gmail.
- Any email sign-up form on this website is connected to a MailChimp account, so if you complete it, then the data would be shared with MailChimp.
Right… anything else?
Oh yes… Any other data stuff collected about you is held by WordPress.com and is only available to the end user (the owner of this website) and it’s anonymous, like, for instance, visitor statistics. So you can freely come visit as many times as you like! I won’t know it’s you. Nobody will.
No data from this website is downloaded by the owner of the site and stored anywhere other than the places I’ve already talked about – you know, the cloud services I mentioned previously.
I’ll talk more internetty stuff next time…
