Who I Am and What This Policy Covers

Greetings! I am Glenn Davis and this is my personal website, verevolf.com

This Privacy Policy applies to information that I collect about you when you use this site.

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

This Privacy Policy available under a Creative Commons Sharealike license. It is based upon the Automattic Privacy Policy of which can grab a copy on GitHub. Information We Collect

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:

Information Collected Automatically

How and Why We Use Information

Purposes for Using Information

We use information about you for the purposes listed below:

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.

Sharing Information

How I Share Information

I may share information about you in limited circumstances, and with appropriate safeguards on your privacy.

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

Security

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.

Your Rights

If you are located in certain parts of the world, including California and countries that fall under the scope of the European General Data Protection Regulation (aka the “GDPR”), you may have certain rights regarding your personal information, like the right to request access to or deletion of your data.

European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)

If you are located in a country that falls under the scope of the GDPR, data protection laws give you certain rights with respect to your personal data, subject to any exemptions provided by the law, including the rights to:

You also have the right to make a complaint to a government supervisory authority.

California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA)

The California Consumer Privacy Act (“CCPA”) requires us to provide California residents with some additional information about the categories of personal information we collect and share, where we get that personal information, and how and why we use it.

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:

How to Reach Me

Privacy Policy Changes

Although most changes are likely to be minor, I may change this Privacy Policy from time to time. I encourage visitors to frequently check this page for any changes to its Privacy Policy. If I make changes, I will notify you by revising the change log below, and, in some cases, we may provide additional notice (like adding a statement to the website homepage Your further use of the Services after a change to our Privacy Policy will be subject to the updated policy.
