Effective Date: January 1, 2023

Thank you for visiting our website and expressing interest in our newsletter, email and information distribution services. We respect your privacy and are committed to protecting your personal information. This Privacy Policy explains how we collect, use, disclose, and safeguard your information when you visit our website and subscribe to our newsletter. Please read this policy carefully to understand our practices regarding your information.

1. Information We Collect

We may collect the following types of personal and non-personal information when you visit our website and subscribe to our newsletter and email list:

  • Personal Information: This may include your name, email address, and any other information you provide voluntarily through our subscription form.
  • Non-Personal Information: We may collect technical and usage information automatically as you interact with our website. This may include your IP address, browser type, operating system, referring URLs, and pages visited.

2. Use of Your Information

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.

Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.

We use the information we collect for various purposes, including:

  • Providing and managing our email and newsletter subscription service.
  • Sending you updates, information, and promotional content related to our website and services.
  • Improving our website’s content and user experience.
  • Analyzing trends and usage patterns.
  • Responding to your inquiries and feedback.

3. Sharing of Your Information

We may share your information with third parties in the following circumstances:

  • Service Providers: We may engage third-party service providers to assist us in managing and delivering our newsletter. These providers are contractually obligated to keep your information confidential and use it solely for the purpose of providing their services.
  • Legal Requirements: We may disclose your information if required to do so by law or in the good-faith belief that such action is necessary to comply with legal obligations, protect and defend our rights or property, or act in urgent circumstances to protect the personal safety of users of our services or the public.

4. Cookies, Embedded Data and Tracking Technologies

We may use cookies, web beacons, and other tracking technologies to collect information about your interactions with our website. This information helps us analyze and improve the performance of our website and tailor content to your preferences. You can adjust your browser settings to refuse cookies or notify you when cookies are being sent.

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.

5. Security

We implement appropriate technical and organizational measures to protect your personal information from unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, and destruction. However, no data transmission or storage system can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of any passwords you use to access our website or services.

6. Your Choices

You can unsubscribe from our newsletter at any time by following the instructions provided in the email. Even if you unsubscribe, we may still send you important administrative messages related to our services.

7. Changes to this Privacy Policy

We may update this Privacy Policy to reflect changes to our practices or for other operational, legal, or regulatory reasons. We encourage you to review this policy periodically.
