Who I Am and What This Policy Covers
Greetings! I am Glenn Davis and this is my personal website, verevolf.com
Below I explain how we collect, use, and share information about you, along with the choices that you have with respect to that information.
Creative Commons Sharealike License
I only collect information about you if I have a reason to do so — for example, to provide Services, to communicate with you, or to make my Services better.
Information You Provide to Me
It’s probably no surprise that I collect information that you provide to me directly. Here are some examples:
- Basic account information: If you create an account I ask for basic information from you in order to set up your account. For example, I require individuals who sign up for a account to provide an email address and password, along with a username or name — and that’s it. You may provide us with more information, but that’s all I collect.
- Public profile information: If you have an account with me, I collect the information that you provide for your public profile.
Information Collected Automatically
- Log information: Like most websites, I collect information that web browsers, mobile devices, and servers typically make available, including the browser type, IP address, unique device identifiers, language preference, referring site, the date and time of access, operating system, and mobile network information. I collect log information when you use this website.
- Usage information:I collect information about your usage of this website. Some of this information is collected and analyzed by Google.
- Location information: Software may determine the approximate location of your device from your IP address. I collect and use this information to, for example, calculate how many people visit this website from certain geographic regions.
How and Why We Use Information
Purposes for Using Information
We use information about you for the purposes listed below:
- To market Verevolf and measure, gauge, and improve the effectiveness of my marketing.
- To protect this website, our users, and the public. For example, by detecting security incidents; detecting and protecting against malicious, deceptive, fraudulent, or illegal activity; fighting spam; complying with legal obligations; and protecting the rights and property of myself and others.
- To fix problems with my website. For example, by monitoring, debugging, repairing, and preventing issues.
Legal Bases for Collecting and Using Information
A note here for those in the European Union about our legal grounds for processing information about you under EU data protection laws, which is that my use of your information is based on the grounds that:
(1) The use is necessary in order to fulfill our commitments to you under the applicable terms of service or other agreements with you or is necessary to administer your account — for example, in order to enable access to our website on your device or charge you for a paid plan; or
(2) The use is necessary for compliance with a legal obligation; or
(3) The use is necessary in order to protect your vital interests or those of another person; or
(4) To provide and update Verevolf; to improve Verevolf so that I can offer you an even better user experience; to safeguard this website; to communicate with you; to measure, gauge, and improve the effectiveness of any potential advertising; and to understand user retention and attrition; to monitor and prevent any problems with the website; and to personalize your experience; or
(5) You have given me your consent — for example before we place certain cookies on your device and access and analyze them later on.
How I Share Information
I may share information about you in limited circumstances, and with appropriate safeguards on your privacy.
- Third-party vendors: I may share information about you with third-party vendors who need the information in order to provide their services to me, or to provide their services to you.
- Legal and regulatory requirements: I may disclose information about you in response to a subpoena, court order, or other governmental request.
- To protect rights, property, and others: I may disclose information about you when I believe in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Verevolf, third parties, or the public at large.
- With your consent: I may share and disclose information with your consent or at your direction. For example, I may share your information with third parties when you authorize me to do so.
I have a standing policy that I do not sell my users’ data. I am not a data broker, I don’t sell your personal information to data brokers, and I don’t sell your information to other companies that want to spam you with marketing emails.
Under a new California law, the California Consumer Privacy Act (“CCPA”), some personalized advertising you see online and on our services might be considered a “sale” even though I don’t share information that identifies you personally, like your name or email address, as part of any advertising program. I’m really not a fan or advertising.
Information Shared Publicly
Information that you choose to make public is — you guessed it — disclosed publicly.
That means information like your public profile, comments, or other content that you make public are all available to others — and I hope they get a lot of views!
Information may also be indexed by search engines or used by third parties.
Please keep all of this in mind when deciding what you would like to share publicly.
How Long is Information Kept?
Information about you is generally discarded when it’s no longer needed for the purposes for which it is collected.c
While no websitee is 100% secure, I strive to protect information about you against unauthorized access, use, alteration, or destruction, and take reasonable measures to do so. Verevolf monitors for potential vulnerabilities and attacks.

The CCPA also requires me to provide a list of the “categories” of personal information I collect, as that term is defined in the law. If you are a California resident, you have additional rights under the CCPA, subject to any exemptions provided by the law, including the right to:
