What personal data we collect and why we collect it
When visitors leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help with spam detection (don’t think spam is limited to email inboxes).
Reminder – any personally identifiable information you directly disclose through your public comments may be collected and used by others.
If you upload images to the website, you should avoid uploading images into your comments with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the website.
To gain access to the resources provided in the Style Library (consisting of checklists, workbooks, diagrams, etc. for personal use with topics discussed on this website), a password is required to access the page content. By supplying this website with your email, you will receive an initial email with the password. By checking the ‘subscribe’ box, you may also receive follow-up emails when new resources are posted to the library (typically twice a month) or for additional resource opportunities available in the on-line shop. If you do not opt to “subscribe” you will not receive any additional emails from this opt-in form.
We may use demographic information such as comment interests to improve topics discussed in future posts.

IP addresses, and other such information are not linked to any information that is personally identifiable.
