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.
