What personal data we collect and why we collect it

Contact forms

We are collecting and storing the data contained in our email newsletter signup form. This data includes name and email address.

Some of our contact forms include the ability to pay us for subscription-based services, such as hosting and support plans. Those contact forms include additional Personal Information required to process those payments, including, full name, business name, and credit card information. We store only the minimum amount of information on our own site to track those payments (the last four digits of the credit card) along with other Personal Information in the form.

Cookies

If you have an account and you log in to this site, we will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.

When you log in, we will also set up several cookies to save your login information and your screen display choices. Login cookies last for two days, and screen options cookies last for a year. If you select “Remember Me”, your login will persist for two weeks. If you log out of your account, the login cookies will be removed.

If you edit or publish an article, an additional cookie will be saved in your browser. This cookie includes no personal data and simply indicates the post ID of the article you just edited. It expires after 1 day.

We use Google Analytics to track visits to our site. Google Analytics inserts up to two cookies in your browser to help track that behavior, but our Google Analytics data is anonymized.

Embedded content from other websites

Articles on this 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.

When you request our website from our hosting servers by clicking a link or typing the address into your address bar, we are collecting your IP address, which we share with our hosting company, WP Engine, and Google Analytics.

In order to enable the deliverability of our contact form emails to our company email service provider , we use a third-party service called MailGun.
