The purpose of this privacy policy (this “Privacy Policy”) is to inform users of our Site of the following:

  1. The personal data we will collect;
  2. Use of collected data;
  3. Who has access to the data collected;
  4. The rights of Site users; and
  5. The Site’s cookie policy.

This Privacy Policy applies in addition to the Terms and Conditions of our Site. The European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (“GDRP”) and California’s California Consumer Privacy Act (“CCPA”) provide protections for consumers in their respective jurisdictions. If you are not a resident or user of the site in the European Union or a California resident then you may not have rights under the GDRP or CCPA. Even though the GDRP or CCPA may not apply to you, we do respect and protect users’ privacy.

Even if you are not a California resident or a resident of the European Union we take steps to protect your private information. However, nothing herein should be taken as an agreement that the CCPA’s protections/remedies shall apply as to use by non-California residents or that the GDRP’s protections/remedies shall apply to non-European Union residents.

General Terms on Privacy
Except as otherwise mandated by law in the applicable jurisdiction, the following General Terms on Privacy shall apply.

Third Party Vendors
We may use third party vendors to perform certain functions, e.g. e-mail services, cloud/data storage providers. Such vendors shall only have access to personal information needed to perform their functions and shall not have authority to use any personal information for any other purpose.

Business Transfers
In the event we sell or transfer some or all of our business or assets, the consumer information and user submissions we obtain may be part of such sale or transfer.

Legal Compliance
We may disclose personal or consumer information on a good faith belief that the disclosure is appropriate to comply with the law or protect the user, us, the site or the public.

We do not knowingly collect or use personal data from children under 16 years of age. If we learn that we have collected personal data from a child under 16 years of age, the personal data will be deleted as soon as possible. If a child under 16 years of age has provided us with personal data their parent or guardian may contact our Privacy Officer.

  1. The conditions set out in this Privacy Policy.

When the legal basis for us processing your personal data is that you have provided your consent to that processing, you may withdraw your consent at any time. If you withdraw your consent, it will not make processing which we completed before you withdrew your consent unlawful.

While we take all reasonable precautions to ensure that user data is secure and that users are protected, there always remains the risk of harm. The Internet as a whole can be insecure at times and therefore we are unable to guarantee the security of user data beyond what is reasonably practical.

When we transfer user personal data we will protect that data as described in this Privacy Policy and comply with applicable legal requirements for transferring personal data internationally.

If you are located in the United Kingdom or the European Union, we will only transfer your personal data if:

  1. The country your personal data is being transferred to has been deemed to have adequate data protection by the European Commission or, if you are in the United Kingdom, by the United Kingdom adequacy regulations; or
  2. We have implemented appropriate safeguards in respect of the transfer. For example, the recipient is a party to binding corporate rules, or we have entered into standard EU or United Kingdom data protection contractual clauses with the recipient.

If you feel we have not addressed your concern in a satisfactory manner you may contact a supervisory authority. You also have the right to directly make a complaint to a supervisory authority. You can lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority by contacting the European Data Protection Supervisor; details can be found at

The above General Terms on Privacy shall apply as to users who are California residents except to the extent they conflict with the California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018. The CCPA protects California residents. CCPA has similar requirements and protections to the GDRP. The CCPA applies to:

  • Companies that serve California residents that have at least $25 million in annual revenue;
  • Companies of any size that have personal data of at least 50,000 California residents or that collect more than half their revenue from the sale of personal data of California residents.

For your information, we do not have $25 million in annual revenue (hopefully one day we will!), and we do not sell our users’ personal data for monetary consideration.  As of September 2022 we do not have the personal data of 50,000 people to trigger the CCPA.  The CCPA does not currently apply to us; however, we will look to the CCPA for guidance for ways to protect your privacy.

Rights of California Residents Under the CCPA:

  1. Right to Know. You may make 2 requests in a 12-month period for the (1) categories of personal information we have collected, disclosed or sold about you in the last 12 months, (2) categories of sources that we collected personal information, (3) the business purposes that we used the information, and (4) categories of third parties with whom we share or have shared your personal information in the last 12 months;
  2. Right to Access. You may make 2 requests in a 12-month period for the specific pieces of personal information we have collected about you in the last 12 months.
  3. Right to Delete. You have the right to request, up to 2 times in a 12-month period, that we delete personal information that we collected from you, subject to certain exceptions.
  4. Right to Opt-Out. If we ever did start selling our users’ personal information, then you would have the right to opt-out of the sale of your personal information to third parties.
  5. You have the right to designate an authorized agent to submit the above requests on your behalf.
  6. You have the right to not be discriminated against in receiving different or less favorable pricing, services, or financial incentives for exercising an of the above rights.

You may exercise your right to make any of these requests by contacting the Privacy Officer (identified above).

CCPA Consumer Requests
If the CCPA applies and you submit a consumer request we will endeavor to respond to your request within 45 days. Our response shall only cover the prior 12 month period preceding our receipt of your request. We will notify you if we require more time to respond or if we are unable to comply with a request.

Information that We Collect and How We Use It
Please see the sections describing the Information We Collect and How We Use It that are provided, above, in relation to the GDRP.

Authorized Agent
You may authorize someone to act as your authorized agent regarding consumer requests sent on your behalf. We will require a validly executed and notarized power of attorney or other written authorization that we can verify. We may ask for proof of authorization.

Opt-Out of Sale of Your Information
Again, we do not sell your personal information for monetary consideration. However, as described above, we may share your information, such as with Google Analytics. This may result in a benefit to us about informing us what visitors to our websites view or interact with for marketing purposes. This may lead to targeted advertising. You have the right to tell us NOT to sell your personal information (again, we do not sell your information for money). You may opt-out of our disclosure of your personal information to third parties where the disclosure constitutes a “sale” as defined by the CCPA without fear of discrimination for doing so. You may do this by contacting our Privacy Officer, including but not limited to, contact through regular mail or email (see above). You may prevent your data from being used by Google Analytics, see:

We may change and update this privacy policy at any time. Please check back on a regular basis for any changes that may have been made.
