Email marketing and contact forms

This email complies with the CAN-SPAM Act of 2003.

Every visitor who subscribed to my website has the right to opt-out or “unsubscribe” from my email list. You can unsubscribe by clicking the unsubscribe button at the end of every email sent out to you.

If you contact me directly, I can receive additional information about you such as your name, email address, the contents of the message and/or attachments you may send to me, and any other information you may choose to provide.

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 I use your information

I use the information I collect in various ways, including to:

  • Provide, operate, and maintain my website

How is your data shared?

Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service. Your data is not shared with anyone outside of this website except the plugins installed on the website required to complete analysis or MailerLite if you opt-in to receive emails.

How I protect your data?

If you decide to purchase something from the shop, your information is encrypted and Alice in Methodology cannot see it. Alice in Methodologyland uses an SSL certificate so that all of your information is safely stored.

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.

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.
