When somebody visits DoktorSnake.com we use WordPress to collect standard internet log information and details of visitor behavior patterns. We do this to find out stuff like how many visitors we get to the site and to specific content, like blog posts. That way, we know what material is most popular and get a better idea of what people want to read on the site. This information doesn’t record people’s identities or personal information. Neither DoktorSnake.com, nor WordPress, make any attempt to find out the identities of those visiting the website.
When you send an email to Doktor Snake, you do it via the contact form on the website. This asks you for your name and email address. Neither are used for any other purpose except replying to your message or messages to Doktor Snake. Doktor Snake’s email system is powered by FastMail, and this is where your contact information is stored – that is, on FastMail’s cloud servers. Email is accessed from the FastMail cloud by Doktor Snake via his Linux-powered laptop. But no messages are actually downloaded. Using the IMAP protocol, the laptop access FastMail’s cloud servers to view and reply to messages.
As part of the registration process for Doktor Snake’s latest blog post alerts, we ask for your email address. This is so we can send you the blog post alerts (we couldn’t if we didn’t have your email). The blog alerts are a short compilation of the latest blog posts that have been published on DoktorSnake.com. We most definitely DO NOT rent or trade email lists with other organizations and businesses. And it goes without saying that we hate spam.
You can unsubscribe from the WordPress blog alerts 24/7 by clicking the unsubscribe link at the end of our email broadcasts – or just reply and Doktor Snake will remove you from the list.
We’ve put in place security measures to prevent your personal data from being accidentally lost, used, altered, disclosed, or accessed without authorization. We have procedures in place to deal with any suspected personal data breach and will notify you and any applicable regulator of a breach if we are legally required to.
We’ll only retain your personal data for as long as necessary to fulfill the purposes we collected it for, which is either to reply to an email you sent Doktor Snake or to alert you to new website content and blog posts.
When deciding what the correct time is to keep the data for we look at its amount, nature and sensitivity, potential risk of harm from unauthorized use or disclosure, the processing purposes, if these can be achieved by other means and legal requirements.
In some circumstances we may anonymize your personal data for research or statistical purposes in which case we may use this information indefinitely without further notice to you.
