Your Privacy Matters to Me.

My website here at www.ShannaLyn.com was created with you in mind. As I share the gems of insight I’ve found digging through the challenges of life, I hope to inspire, encourage or simply bring a smile to your face. Those little graces are what propel us forward to the ultimate goal of living life to the fullest.

Subscribers

With you in mind, I created this policy as reassurance that any and all information you share with this site is secure. As a subscriber, I collect your name to greet you personally and “put a face” to your email address.  These will only used by me for newsletters and blog postings. Otherwise, I do not collect your contact information.

Comments

When visitors leave comments on my site, information is collected on the comments form. Akismet (also owned by Automattic) is enabled on my site, and the following information is sent to the service for the sole purpose of spam detection: commenter’s name, email address, site URL, IP address, and user agent. An anonymized string created from your email address (also called a hash) may be provided to the Gravatar service to see if you are using it. The Gravatar service’s privacy policy is available here. After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.

When 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.

All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time. Website administrators also have access to that information.

Embedded Content

Articles on my site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website. These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracing your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.

Analytics

This policy was created to inform you that I will never use (and will not allow any third party to use) statistical analytics tools to track or to collect any personally identifiable information of visitors to my site.

Cookies

For your convenience, activity on my website may be stored in cookies. Learn more about these cookies here. My website utilizes the Yoast SEO plugin to improve visitor’s access to content. Learn more about their privacy policy here.

Rights You Have Over Your Data

If you leave 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.

How I Protect Your Data

All your data is secured using the finest options available via WordPress. Review security policies here.

My privacy policy is continuously subject to updates, as I remain vigilant to the finest security of my site and its users. Any changes to my policy will be posted on this page. If I make material changes to how I treat users’ personal information, I will notify them by email and/or through a notice on the website home page. The date the privacy policy was last revised is identified at the bottom of the page.

I may disclose your information when legally compelled to do so. In other words, when in good faith, I believe the law requires it, for the protection of my legal rights, or when compelled by a court or other governmental entity to do so.

If you have any questions, concerns or comments in regards to this policy, do not hesitate to contact me.
