In general, I don’t collect any data about you except what you provide voluntarily, by posting comments or signing up for my email list. Analytics and spam detection may collect other information.
I do not provide your data to anyone else unless compelled to by law enforcement. If you request it, I will show you what data I have about you. I will delete data about you if asked, except for comments you have posted, which are maintained indefinitely.
Who I am
I am James R. Hardin, an independent author. My website address is: https://jamesrhardin.com.
When 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.
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.
I collect the data you provide in the contact form so I can provide the information you are requesting.
If you leave a comment on this 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.
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 exactly the same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.
Who I share your data with
I do not share your data with anyone unless compelled to by law enforcement.
How long I retain your data
If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so I can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.
What rights you have over your data
If you have left comments on this site, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data I hold about you, including any data you have provided to me. You can also request that I erase any personal data I hold about you. This does not include any data I am obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.
Where I send your data
Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.
