Who we share your data with
How long we retain your data
If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.
For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.
What rights you have over your data
If you have an account on this site, or have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.
Where we send your data

How we protect your data
We take the security of personal data and this website very seriously.
The data collected is protected in a number of ways:
- Access control: The data is only accessed by the team of writers on this website.
- Dedicated security software: We operate dedicated security scanning and access control software on this website. This software limits login attempts to our site, blocks potentially malicious attempts to access our services, and regularly performs full file system scans.
- Data encryption: This website is secured with SSL encryption, which means that all traffic to and from our servers is encrypted. This also applies to our own administrative access to the website.
- Selection of third party service providers: we use a minimal number of third party service providers, but some are essential for the provision of physical hosting environments and email list services. One of the core factors in the selection of such providers is their ability to provide secure systems and processes.
What data breach procedures we have in place
As this website is run a group of individuals, are there no internal reports about a potential data breach. Security breaches is regularly scanned for by using dedicated security software and all programs used on this website are always updated to the latest version. If any data breach was to be detected then all other tasks are put on hold and the breach becomes the top priority to handle.
What third parties we receive data from
We receive data about email list subscribers from Aweber.com that hosts all of our email lists. Such data could for example be what emails a particular and subscribed email address has opened or how long they have been subscribed to that a certain email list.
We can also access limited information about our customers that have joined the premium courses via fastspring.com’s payment processing. That includes information about the name and email address of the customer but not the payment information (this is protected and safely stored by fastspring.com).
