Having experienced ID theft in my own family I take the privacy of my readers very seriously. As part of my endeavors to help you protect your information I provide this notice explaining our online information practices and the choices you can make on how your information is collected and used. To make this notice easy to find, I make it available on our homepage and at every point where personally identifiable information may be requested.
Your Personal Data
When visiting SomethinOuttaNothin, there is no personally identifiable information collected. We use Google Analytics, which uses your IP address to help gather broad demographic information for analytic trends. To reiterate, your IP address is not linked to any personally identifiable information.
We do collect each commenter’s email address solely for the purpose of allowing real people to comment while weeding out spammers. Once the comment and email address are submitted the email address will remain hidden and we will not add it to our own email list or sell it to any third parties.
However, if you write personal info (i.e. your full name or your email address) in publicly viewable areas of comments (i.e. the ‘name’ field, ‘URL’ field, or the body of your comment) it can be viewed by anyone reading the comment section of that post. Conversly, anything you write into the ‘email’ field of the comment form will remain completely hidden from view and will never be shared.
Links to Third Party Websites
Any info collected during a giveaway will not be used for any purpose other than to contact the winner and will be discarded after the giveaway closes (typically 2 weeks after close). More information on how I do giveaways can be found here.
Changes to this Privacy Statement
The contents of this statement may be altered at any time, at our discretion.
