I may need to update this policy from time to time. If I do, I’ll add a post to the site explaining the changes or update the changelog at the bottom of the policy.
The information I collect
You may disclose personal information to me when you subscribe to the Jason Hobbs, LLC mailing list, add comments or other material to the site, or use my contact form. You don’t have to though. You can view the site and subscribe to its feed incognito.
People who will be able to see it
I’m the main person that will be able to see the information you provide. Anyone who may assist me with the site over time may also be able to see it but they won’t be able to share it or use it for their own purposes.
If the personal information you provide forms part of material that you have submitted to be published, members of the public may also see it.
Who holds the information
How I’ll use the information
I’ll only use your personal information to communicate with you, publish comments and other material you ask to be published and for any other purpose that is made clear to you at the point of collection. In addition to news of site updates, I may send occasional emails to you in relation to other matters relevant to Jason Hobbs, LLC or its audience. You’ll be able to unsubscribe from my email list at any time, no questions asked.
I won’t disclose your personal information to third parties unless I need to do so to defend my legal position or am required by law to do so.
How long the data will be held
If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.
For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.
Your Rights 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
We collect information about visitors who comment on Sites that use our Akismet anti-spam service. The information we collect depends on how the User sets up Akismet for the Site, but typically includes the commenter’s IP address, user agent, referrer, and Site URL (along with other information directly provided by the commenter such as their name, username, email address, and the comment itself).
If you leave a comment on our site you may opt-in to saving your name, email address and website in cookies. These are for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for one year.
If you have an account and you log in to this site, we will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.
When you log in, we will also set up several cookies to save your login information and your screen display choices. Login cookies last for two days, and screen options cookies last for a year. If you select “Remember Me”, your login will persist for two weeks. If you log out of your account, the login cookies will be removed.
If you edit or publish an article, an additional cookie will be saved in your browser. This cookie includes no personal data and simply indicates the post ID of the article you just edited. It expires after 1 day.
Google explains the cookies that Google Analytics sets on the Google Developers site. You can usually remove or block cookies by using settings in your browser.
