Last updated: May 22, 2018 to include GDPR Compliance information

GDPR COMPLIANCE
The EU’s General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) take effect May 25, and I am fully behind the spirit of these regulations for a safe and secure Internet. I aspire to embrace privacy by design and, whenever possible, to not collect and store personally-identifiable information.

My Privacy Policy contains mentions of the few instances where personally-identifiable information is required. Typically this will include an email address in order to subscribe to receive emails or obtain freebies from Liz Muroski. Overall, I aim for privacy by default. This approach has felt very much in line with the spirit of GDPR, and I’m fortunate that a lot of these data collection practices have been in place at LMM for some time.

At any time, you may request your information to be exported and sent to you for review, and I will promptly honor any requests by you to have your information changed, or deleted and forgotten. Please contact info@lizmuroskimedia.com if you have questions.

YOUR PRIVACY
Liz Muroski Media is committed to protecting your privacy online and the text below outlines how your private information is collected and used:

• Your name, email address, and [when possible] IP Address are collected when you subscribe to my email list OR when you sign a formal client contract. Email subscriber information is collected using MailChimp.com. This is the only information I collect and store at this time. This information will never be shared or sold.

CommentsWhen visitors leave comments on the site I collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection. An anonymized string created from your email address (also called a hash) may be provided to the Gravatar service to see if you are using it. The Gravatar service privacy policy is available here: https://automattic.com/privacy/. After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment. Please note that there is an automatic email sent by WordPress to your email address when someone replies to a comment you’ve made on my blog.

Contact forms:  I keep contact form submissions only for a certain period for customer service purposes, but do not use the information submitted through them for marketing purposes.
