Privacy Policy

This Privacy Policy explains how this blog (“we” or “us”) collects, use, maintains and discloses information collected from users (each a “user” or “you”) of this website and related online services, including online courses and newsletters (collectively, the “Services”).

We will not use or share your information with anyone except as described in this Privacy Policy.

We use your Personal Information for providing and improving the Service. By using the Service, you agree to the collection and use of information in accordance with this policy.

In addition, we and our third-party service providers (including any third-party content, advertising, analytics, shipping, and payment processing providers) automatically collect certain information from your device or web browser when you interact with the Services. We collect information in a variety of ways, including:

Email Subscriptions: When you sign up to receive our emails, we collect your name and email address.

Each time you visit the Services we and our third-party service providers automatically collect your Internet Protocol (IP) address, device identifier or other unique identifier, browser and computer type, access time, the webpage you came from and go to next, and your interaction with the Services.

Sharing Your Information

When you use certain features of the Services, including signing up for our online courses, subscribing to our emails, submitting responses to surveys, and posting in our online forum, we share your information with third-party service providers for the purpose of providing those features.

We may also share your information where reasonably necessary to (1) comply with a law, regulation or if we are otherwise legally required to do so; (2) establish, protect, or exercise our legal rights or to defend against legal claims; (3) protect the safety or vital interests of another person.


If you upload images to the website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the website.


A “cookie” is a piece of data stored on your computer. We and our third-party service providers use several categories of cookies:

Essential Cookies: These allow the Services to function as intended and ensure that the Services are secure and safe to use.

Analytics Cookies: These allow us to monitor and analyze the performance, operation and effectiveness of the Services.

Personalization Cookies: These allow our Services to remember choices you make to parts of our Services which you can customize in order to provide you with a more personal experience and to avoid you having to re-enter information every time you visit our Services.

Social Media Cookies: Third-party social media services may use these cookies when you share information using a social media sharing button or “like” button on our Services or engage with our Services on or through a social networking website such as Facebook, Twitter or YouTube.

Advertising Cookies: Third-party advertisers that place advertisements through our Services may use these cookies track your browsing habits to enable us to show advertising which is more likely to be of interest to you.

Any use of Cookies – or of other tracking tools – by this Website or by the owners of third-party services used by this Website serves the purpose of providing the Service required by the User, in addition to any other purposes described in the present document and in the Cookie Policy, if available.

Users are responsible for any third-party Personal Data obtained, published or shared through this Website and confirm that they have the third party’s consent to provide the Data to the Owner.

If you leave a comment on our site you may opt-in to saving your name, email address and website in cookies. These are for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for one year.

If you visit our login page, we will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.

When you log in, we will also set up several cookies to save your login information and your screen display choices. Login cookies last for two days, and screen options cookies last for a year. If you select “Remember Me”, your login will persist for two weeks. If you log out of your account, the login cookies will be removed.

Embedded content from other websites

Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.

These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracking your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.

How long we retain your data

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.

For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile, according to our Terms of Service. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.

Changes To This Privacy Policy

We may update this privacy policy at any time. When we do, we will revise the updated date at the bottom of this page.

We encourage you to frequently check this page for any changes to stay informed about how we are helping to protect the personal information we collect. You acknowledge and agree that it is your responsibility to review this privacy policy periodically and become aware of modifications.
