Privacy Page

Oh, hi there! Welcome to our Privacy Page.  

This page will give you a better understanding of how we collect, use, protect or otherwise handle your PII (personally identifiable information).

What personal information do we collect from our visitors?

We don’t collect any information from our visitors unless they opt-in to receive an email subscription for our latest posts, comment replies, or any privacy policy changes.

When a visitor comments on our posts or submits a request through our contact forms, we collect the data shown in the contact form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection. 

Of course, if a visitor is spamming on our site, we might block his/he IP address in order to prevent hi/her from accessing the site or commenting our posts.

When do we collect information?

We collect information from our visitors only when they subscribe to a newsletter, fill out a form or enter information on our site.

This information is used to provide us with feedback on our products or services or, if they consent, to occasionally send emails which can be unsubscribed from at any time.

We use this information to improve our website in order to better serve our visitors.

How do we keep your information safe?

We do not use vulnerability scanning or scanning to PCI standards. We use regular Malware Scanning.

As we only provide articles and information, we never ask visitors for their credit card numbers. We never ask for personal or private information like a mailing address either.
