Privacy Policy

I respect the EU’s General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) and this policy document explains how I collect and handle any information you provide me.

What background data is collected?

This website does not collect or store any personally identifiable data behind the scenes.

How do I use the data you provide?

If you sign up for my newsletter, I only collect your name and email address.
If you use the contact form I will use the data you provide to correspond with you.
This website does not collect anymore information.

Where do I store your data?

If you sign up for my newsletter, I store your name and email address in Mailchimp.
When you contact me directly by email the contents are stored in the email system, currently hosted on zoho.eu.
If you use the contact form the data will be stored on within the form submission section on Netlify, which only I have access to.

How secure is my data?

Where I store your information in third-party services, access is restricted to myself.

The computer I use is protected by passcode access. This computer asks for authentication whenever it’s started or after 5 minutes of inactivity. My mobile device is also protected by a face recognition.

How secure is this website?

This website transmits itself using HTTPS, encrypting all data between the browser and the server. Your network provider may still be able to see that you are loading files from this site, but not their content. This also protects you from third parties intercepting data e.g. while browsing on public WiFi, or network providers injecting ads into this site.

Analytics

In common with almost most websites, I use a web analytics service (Google Analytics) to help me understand how people use my website. These cookies are served by Google - a third party. I have enabled the 'Anonymize IP' option so that the analytics data does not contain any information that identifies you personally.

Changes to the policy

If I change the contents of this policy, those changes will become effective the moment I publish them on my website.

Complaints

If you’ve any reason to complain about the ways I handle your privacy, please contact me (Chris Collins) by email at hello@chriscollins.me.
