What user data this site might collect:
• Information such as site preferences through the use of optional cookies that are set by WordPress and not me (more on that later!). This site is owned by WordPress and so IP addresses may be obtained and that amongst other things (like Google and your chosen use of social media widgets) are not controllable by me.
• Your email address alongside a username (should you choose to subscribe/comment/contact) is mandatory in order to prevent spam. This personal information (like all gathered here at Elsie LMC) is secure and will only be used for the purpose you intend it to be given for. It will be kept private and no third parties will be able to see or receive this information (other than WordPress/ Google which both it and your account operate through). If behavior ignores the rules outlined in my disclaimer action will be taken.
Upon subscription to Elsie LMC through email you will automatically receive new posts and if at any point you wish to stop receiving these emails then you can click the “unsubscribe” option in said email. Of course if you are viewing the site through the WordPress app you will not have to include your email address to comment or subscribe. I will not use your email for personal benefit/send you anything other than what has been agreed. When using your email to comment I will reply via the site beneath the comment and not by email (your email is only necessary here to prove you’re not a robot/capable of spam!) and you’re email is needed through the contact page as it is connected to my blog email as a way of replying.
Why this site collects this data:
• to allow you to subscribe/comment/get in contact with me.
• to customize the website according to your online behavior (e.g remembering language options, adding you to my overall stats, notifying me of links you’ve clicked on).
By continuing to use this site you’re agreeing to what is outlined above.
