Here we are in a balance of maintaining privacy, helping me help you, and not being creepy, right?
The tl;dr version: your privacy matters and I’m not going to sell your information to the devil. Or anyone, for that matter.
As with most other websites, there are server log files. The information in the log files include your IP (internet protocol) address, your ISP (internet service provider), the browser you used to visit the site, the time you visited the site, and which pages you visited throughout the site.
If you register for the email list (AND YOU TOTALLY SHOULD), your email address will be stored by my email service provider and used for communication from… that’s right, me! Your address will not be sold or distributed to any other parties not involved in the distribution of my email. My list, and your address, are not for sale.
The purpose of us using this software is to understand our website traffic in the most privacy-friendly way possible so that we can continually improve our website and business. The lawful basis as per the GDPR is “f); where our legitimate interests are to improve our website and business continually.” As per the explanation, no personal data is stored over time.
Cookies and Web Beacons
Cookies may be used to store information, such as your personal preferences when you visit this site.
I might also use third party advertisements on techphotoguy.com to support our site. Some of these advertisers may use technology such as cookies and web beacons when they advertise on our site, which will also send these advertisers (such as Google or Facebook) information including your IP address, your ISP, the browser you used to visit our site, and in some cases, whether you have Flash installed. This is generally used for geotargeting purposes (showing New York photography ads to someone in New York, for example) or showing certain ads based on specific sites visited (such as showing photography ads to someone who frequents photography sites).
You can chose to disable or selectively turn off this site’s cookies or third-party cookies in your browser settings, or by managing preferences in security programs. However, this may affect how you are able to interact with this site as well as other websites. This could include the inability to login to services or programs, such as logging into forums or accounts.
