HMM…WHAT DO YOU THINK? PRIVACY AND COOKIES POLICY: Valid for https://hmmwhatdoyouthink.com
Hmm…What Do You Think? takes privacy and security of collected data very seriously.
This policy is to inform you of the type of personal information the site collects and how it is processed and used, per US/EU Privacy Guidelines.
About: This is a personal blog by a person who enjoys reading and learning about the unusual, the not so ordinary.
Anonymous Information Collected: An IP address is an anonymous bit of data dropped by all site visitors (both human and bots). It is tracked by the following entities for better security, content creation, and marketing purposes.
Your browser may also send response headers with generic/anonymized information about the type of browser, computer/device, and ISP you are using, and your location by country only.
• Google Analytics – So I can discover the type of content you find most helpful and create more of it. (Note: Google does not have access to this data.)
• Name Hero Hosting – Kept in the server logs so the host can identify and stop bad bot attacks.
• Cloudflare – To identify and stop bad bot attacks.
• UpdraftPlus – My backup service.
• YouTube – If you view a YouTube embedded video on the site, the IP info is sent to YouTube to record that the video has been viewed, just as it would if you had watched it directly on YouTube.
Email Collection: My list service provider is MailChimp.
If you elect to subscribe, your email address will be stored on their servers. You can access your info any time by clicking the Manage Subscription link at the bottom of any email you receive from me.
I never have, and never will share your email address with any person or entity for marketing purposes.
Comments: Leaving a comment on one of my posts requires that you identify yourself by email address.
That info is stored in the site’s database.
An anonymized string created from your email address (also called a hash) may be provided to the Gravatar service to see if the email address you used is connected to that provider so your happy face displays next to your comment.
Third Party Links: I frequently links to other bloggers and vendor sites.
Clicking on those links or enabling those connections may allow third parties to collect or share data about you on their site. I do not control these third-party websites and am not responsible for their privacy statements. When you leave my site, I encourage you to read the privacy notice of every website you visit.
Disable Tracking: You can disable cookies through your own browser settings. Check with the browser vendor for more info on how to do that, if you wish.
Disclaimer and Limitation of Liability: Hmm…What Do You Think? makes no representation, warranties, or assurances as to the accuracy, currency, or completeness of any privacy polices of 3rd party entities that information is shared with.
