If you subscribe to any service, resource, or means of staying in contact with us — we will keep your email address in a private distribution list.
We do not use this email address list for any other purpose, and we only add individuals at their request.
Be sure to slowly read your options, look over any checkboxes, and make sure you are signing up for what you wish to receive.
You may opt-out at any time by using the unsubscribe link provided at the bottom of the email, which will remove your information from the distribution list for that part of the service/resource.
Personal identification information
When a reader chooses to subscribe to the newsletter, we will manually collect your first name and email address, and automatically collect the date, the time, and the IP address used to submit them. This personally identifiable information can only be collected by us if the reader voluntarily provides it.
A reader may refuse to give such personal identification information by not filling out the subscribe form, but it will prevent the reader from being added to the email list.
After a reader subscribes to the newsletter, the MailChimp email service provider is used to store this information. MailChimp transfers this personal data into my MailChimp account, and I use their services to send emails to our email distribution list.
Google Forms and Surveys
This site may use Google forms to conduct voluntary surveys or collect information for the purpose of getting a greater scope of our readers’ needs. Google stores the data behind a secure wall for the duration of the membership.
