Serial Photog Privacy Policy

Last Updated: 02/27/2017

Your privacy is extremely important to me. I operate Serial Photog under a few basic principles:

  • I will never ask you for your personal information unless it is truly required.
  • The personal information that you share with me will never, under any circumstances, be shared with anyone except in the compliance of the law, to continue to develop my products, and to defend my rights.
  • I do not store personal information on my servers unless it is absolutely necessary for the ongoing operation of the services that I provide.
  • I make every effort possible to be completely transparent about what data I collect and how it is used.

Below is my privacy policy, which incorporates these goals. This privacy policy is based on that of Automattic, Inc. The fine folks there were kind enough to release their privacy policy under the Creative Commons ShareAlike license.

If you have an questions about deleting or correcting your personal data please contact me.

Website Visitors

Like most website operators, Serial Photog collects non-personally identifiable information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preferences, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. Serial Photog’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Serial Photog’s visitors use its website. From time to time, Serial Photog may release non-personally identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.

Serial Photog also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on our site. Serial Photog only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below.

In each case, Serial Photog collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with Serial Photog.
