Privacy Policy

Who I am

My website address is: https://treadlightly.ca.

What personal data I collect and why I collect it

contact form

No information submitted via the Let’s Connect page is stored in a database or on this website in anyway. Once you click the ‘Send’ button, the information is emailed directly to me and then stored on a secure server. The information will be stored within my email account indefinitely, but will not be intentionally shared with any third party without both your knowledge and consent.

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 tracing your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.

cookies

Some forms on this site require the use of Google’s reCAPTCHA service before they can be submitted. If you consent to use Google’s reCAPTCHA service, a cookie is created that stores your consent. This cookie deletes itself after thirty days.

Visiting the login page sets a temporary cookie that aids compatibility with some alternate login methods. This cookie contains no personal data and expires after 1 hour.

security logs

The IP address of visitors, user ID of logged in users, and username of login attempts are conditionally logged to check for malicious activity and to protect the site from specific kinds of attacks. Examples of conditions when logging occurs include login attempts, log out requests, requests for suspicious URLs, changes to site content, and password updates. This information is retained for 14 days.

analytics

I only collect anonymous analytics data and only so I can see visitor trends, really.

portfolio

If you become a client, I will take screenshots of the work I have done on your website and make those images publicly visible along with a link to your website and a description of the services that I provided to you. This is fully disclosed in the contract that we both agree to when you become a client. Work in my portfolio will be kept indefinitely, in order to provide future clients a sense of the quality they can expect.

If you are a client and you have any concerns about this, please let me know by emailing [email protected].

Who I share your data with

I don’t intentionally share your data with anyone unless you request it or, at the very least, consent.

Some forms on this site require the use of Google’s reCAPTCHA service before they can be submitted. Use of the reCAPTCHA service is subject to the Google Privacy Policy and Terms of Use.
