Do you like people doing collecting data on you and using it in dastardly and nefarious ways? Neither do we!
What kind of information do we collect?
We sometimes collect emails so that we can deliver you downloadable content that you’ve asked for.
What’s the reason for collecting it?
Our goal here is to give you the best possible experience while collecting the minimum amount of information needed to do so. Knowing some things about what you like and don’t like, at least about the subjects covered here, helps us to keep from sending you stuff you don’t want.
Do you share or sell those emails to any third parties?
We do not sell or share these with any third parties, beyond our email hosting provider.
We also use these to communicate with you about things related to the topic of our site, mainly new content we think you’ll be interested in.
Can I opt out of getting emails?
Of course. You should only be receiving information you want.
If you don’t want what we send you, there’s an unsubscribe link in every email.
Do you store any other information?
If you have registered for a course, then we store your email, username and password; however, your password is encrypted, and our hacking skills are nowhere near good enough to crack it.
Do you store credit card information?
No. All credit card transactions are handled by third party payment processors, either Paypal or Stripe. They house credit card information on their secure servers.
Can you remove the information you have stored?
Yep. Just contact us if you’d like any information removed.
Here’s the legalese description:
Who we are
Our website address is: https://clawhammerbanjo.net (a property of Brainjo, LLC).
What personal data we collect and why we collect it
When visitors leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.
If you upload images to the website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the website.
If you leave a comment on our site you may opt-in to saving your name, email address and website in cookies. These are for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for one year.
If you have an account and you log in to this site, we will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.
When you log in, we will also set up several cookies to save your login information and your screen display choices. Login cookies last for two days, and screen options cookies last for a year. If you select “Remember Me”, your login will persist for two weeks. If you log out of your account, the login cookies will be removed.
If you edit or publish an article, an additional cookie will be saved in your browser. This cookie includes no personal data and simply indicates the post ID of the article you just edited. It expires after 1 day.
Embedded content from other websites
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.
Who we share your data with
How long we retain your data
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.
What rights you have over your data
If you have an account on this site, or have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.
Where we send your data
Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.

How we protect your data
The Site has reasonable security measures in place such as Secure Sockets Layer protocols to prevent the loss, misuse, and alteration of the information that we obtain from you, but we make no assurances about our ability to prevent any such loss, misuse, to you or to any third party arising out of any such loss, misuse, or alteration.
