Privacy Policy

This privacy policy describes how I (and any services I rely on, such as my website host and mailing list service) collect, use, communicate, disclose, safeguard and otherwise make use of your personally identifiable information (“Personal Data”).

I will only collect and use your Personal Data where:

  • I have lawful grounds to do so, including to comply with my legal obligations;
  • I am providing something requested or desired by you (including but not limited to mailing list emails and responses to inquiries) and need your Personal Data to customize and/or deliver it; and
  • I have a legitimate interest in using your Personal Data and your interests and fundamental rights do not override those interests.

This policy page was created on May 21, 2018. I may change or update it from time to time, so please check back here regularly to ensure you are familiar with its current content.

Sharing of your Personal Data

I take your privacy seriously and will not share your Personal Data with others (unless required by law or urgent safety concerns), except as necessary with third parties who provide services or functions on my behalf and who require the information to provide those specific services.
