Third Party Privacy Policies
Third Party Tracking Currently On Site:
- https://clicky.com/ – This is the web analytics software I use, which at the time of writing was attempting to comply with GDPR regulations.
- Google Search Console – A meta tag and connection to GSC is placed on my site, it is not clear if cookies are presented by Google but data is for sure linked from their index with my site’s own data, Google claim this secure and where possible I try not to use their services, this is the only item from Google placed on my site.
This site is not intended for children or minors. Another part of my priority is adding protection for children while using the internet. I encourage parents and guardians to observe, participate in, and/or monitor and guide their online activity.
This website does not knowingly collect any Personal Identifiable Information from children under the age of 13. If you think that your child provided this kind of information on my website, I strongly encourage you to contact me immediately and I will do my best to promptly remove such information from my records.
