Financial Minimalist operates the https://financialminimalist.com website, which provides the SERVICE.
This page is used to inform website visitors regarding our policies with the collection, use, and disclosure of Personal Information if anyone decided to use our Service, the FinancialMinimalist.com website.
We value our own privacy and that of our users and have taken numerous steps to protect the anonymity of those who visit our site, as outlined below.
What personal data we collect and why we collect it
This site explicitly collects opt-in e-mail addresses and names when you specifically and knowingly provide it. We use email addresses and names to contact you with information you have requested related to the content on this site.
- You will always be able to identify the purpose personal information is being collected for and it will only be retained as long as necessary for the fulfillment of those purposes.
- We will protect personal information by reasonable security safeguards against loss or theft, as well as unauthorized access, disclosure, copying, use or modification.
We never share, rent, or sell email addresses or other specific, personal information about our users.
When visitors leave comments on the site, we collect the data shown in the comments form. This information is run through an internal blocklist for spam detection – it is never sent to an outside source. Additionally, we use an automatic default image for everyone who chooses to leave a comment.
When sending information through the contact form, we collect a name and email address in order to respond to the inquiry only. This information will never be used for marketing or any other purpose.
We have made reasonable efforts to avoid utilizing cookies, though some may still be present due to the following:
- Leaving a comment creates a hashed cookie so that you can comment again without re-entering the base details (name, etc.).
- Embedded content.
Embedded content from other websites
Pages on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.
At this time, the only notable embedded content is the YouTube video on the About page.
In an effort to protect your privacy, we do not take part in Google Analytics or other similar services that utilize cookies and collect personally identifying information.
How long we retain your data
If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely.
What rights you have over your data
If you have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of said comments. You can also request that we erase them.
