Privacy & Data Notice

TL;DR

I use Google Analytics on my website to get generalized data about how users interact with my website and its content. You can opt out of those cookies here. If you choose to submit a contact form, I ask for your email address only so I can reply to your query. This information is never used for any other purpose. You can have your information removed from my address book by sending me an email with the appropriate information. None of the external or third-party links found here are endorsements, and you interact with them at your own risk.

Collection of personal data through contact forms

There are several embedded contact forms throughout this website which allow users to send a quick email-based message without opening up an email client. I use Contact Form 7 in order to do this. More information about this WordPress plugin can be found hereThis link will open in a new window. I am not responsible for the content of external websites.

To submit a contact form successfully, I must collect:

  • Your name
  • Your email address

This data is collected so that I am able to respond to your message, and track queries based on the name provided to me. You are not required to provide your full name as part of your submission.

By choosing to use any of the contact form features of this website, you consent to having your provided name and email address saved as a contact for correspondence related to your query only. It is never shared with other organizations or third parties, used for marketing or advertising purposes, or other forms of contact or solicitation.

Your email address is automatically stored indefinitely by Google Contacts. Google Contacts is Google’s contact management tool that is available in its free email service Gmail, which is what handles all inbound Contact Form 7 submissions. This information will never be downloaded shared, or stored externally.

If you have previously shared your email address with me and would like me to remove it from Google Contacts, send an email to steph@stephparker.com outlining which email address should be deleted. All requests will be handled within 48 hours, and a confirmation notice will be sent.
