When using my Site, I also collect information automatically, some of which may be personal data.  This includes data such as language settings, IP address, location, device settings, device OS, log information, time of usage, URL requested, status report, user agent (information about the browser version), browsing history, and type of data viewed. 

Like many websites, my Site may use cookies, pixels, log files and other mechanisms to gather information about your use of my Site.  I use cookies as set out in my Cookie Policy.  I do not track your activities when you are on third-party websites, and do not place ads on any third-party websites.  I do not honor browser do-not-track signals at this time.

My Use of Personal Information

I will always have a lawful basis when I collect and use your personal information, such as necessity to perform a contract that I have with you, because you consented to my use of your personal information, because it is in my legitimate interest, or so that I can establish, exercise, or defend a legal claim.  I use your personal information for the following purposes:

  • Review Contact Submissions:  I use your information to review and evaluate your contact form submission, which you voluntarily provided to the Site.

  • Analytics and Research:  I may use personal data to conduct research and analysis.  I may use your personal data for analytical purposes to improve my services.

  • Security and Fraud Detection:  I may use your personal data in order to prevent fraud or other illegal or infringing activities on my Site.  I also may use this information to investigate and detect fraud, unauthorized activities and access, and other misuse of my Site.  I can use personal data for risk assessment and security purposes, including the authentication of users. 

  • Legal and Compliance:  I may use your personal data to comply with legal requirements or judicial process. For example, I may disclose information in response to subpoenas, court orders and/or other lawful requests by regulators and/or law enforcement.

I also may aggregate and/or de-identify any information that I collect, such that the information no longer identifies any specific individual. I may use, disclose and otherwise process such information for my own legitimate purposes – including historical and statistical analysis – without restriction.

Sharing Personal Information

I may share personal information with the following categories of third parties:

  • with third party service providers that provide services on my behalf, and that are bound by contractual obligations to keep your personal information confidential and to use it only for the purposes for which we disclose it to them, including:

If you prefer that I do not share your personal information with third parties for marketing purposes, please email me at evanruby94@gmail.com.

Data security

I employ commercially reasonable security procedures to prevent unauthorized access to, and the misuse of, personal information.  Unfortunately, no data transmission or storage system can be guaranteed to be 100% secure, and I cannot ensure the security of the information that you transmit.   

Third Party websites and links

My Site may contain links to other websites whose information practices may be different than ours.  Visitors should consult the other websites’ privacy notices as I have no control over information that is submitted to, or collected by, these third parties.

Data retention

My retention periods for personal information are based on personal needs and legal requirements.  I retain personal information only for as long as is necessary to fulfill the processing purposes for which the information was collected, and any other permissible, related purpose, depending on the purpose(s) for which the information was collected, the nature of the information, any contractual relationship that may govern the retention of the data, and our legal or regulatory obligations. If you have a question about a specific retention period for certain types of personal data I process about you, contact me using the contact details included below.

Changes to this policy

I reserve the right to revise this policy or any part of it from time to time. Please review the policy periodically for changes.  If I make material changes, I will endeavor to provide notice ahead of such changes, such as by email or through a notice prominently on the Site.
