I value your privacy. The only information I store on my website (emilygellhaus.com) is information that you provide freely.
I love comments. Just know that when you comment, information gets collected in the form of your name, email address, IP address, and (of course) your comments. If you ever change your mind and want your comments removed, send me a quick note through the form below and I’ll remove them.
To protect my site from spam, your information is compared with a list of known spam senders by Clean Talk. Clean Talk only stores your information for a few days to give me time to decide if I need to argue with it over whether or not you’re a spammer.
When you subscribe, I collect your name, IP address, and email address so that I can send you infrequent updates about what is going on in my world. Want to unsubscribe? Click the unsubscribe button at the bottom of any email.
The newsletters also send a message back to the website when they are opened or when you click on a link. This helps me design better future content so I can try not to bore you. The statistics on whether or not the newsletter was opened are also stored.
My contact form requests your name, email address, the subject, and message that you wish to send me. Your IP address is also captured by the system. This information is checked for spam as noted above and then transmitted to me via email. It is not stored on my website. During that transmission, the data will be sent through normal email channels.
