The only piece of information I collect is your email address if you sign up to receive email updates from me.
I use Buttondown to capture your email address when you give it voluntarily via the email sign up form, you can see their privacy statement here.
The information collected is an email address with no other personal identifying information.
I use the collected information (an email address) to send emails to subscribers.
If there is a giveaway being run where I need to send something in the post, like stickers. I will request your address via the email given in the mailing list on Buttondown. Once the package has been sent I will delete any emails with identifying information in them.
The theme cookie is like a handy helper that knows your theme preference every time you drop by. No fuss.
The block_fathom cookie is to save me money! If you use an ad blocker (no judgment, I use one!) then I’ll need to stop requesting analytics from Fathom (which shows visitor stats).
I don’t use any advertising networks on my site, they all suck!
