This policy explains what information I collect when you use Philipp Rosenthal/The Digital Sherpa’s sites, services, mobile applications, and content (“services”). It also has information about how I store, use, transfer, and delete that information. My aim is not just to comply with privacy law. It’s to earn your trust.
Information I Collect & How I Use It
Philipp Rosenthal/The Digital Sherpa doesn’t make money from ads. I don’t collect data in order to advertise to you. The tracking I do at Philipp Rosenthal/The Digital Sherpa is to make my information service work as well as possible. To give you the best possible experience in using Philipp Rosenthal/The Digital Sherpa, I collect information from your interactions with my services. Some of this information, you actively tell me (such as your email address, which I use to communicate with you). Other information, I collect based on actions you take while using Philipp Rosenthal/The Digital Sherpa, such as what pages you view (including how much of a given page and for how long). This information includes records of those interactions, your Internet Protocol address, information about your device (such as device or browser type), and referral information (how you got to a particular page). I use this information to
- provide, test and improve the services
- fight spam and other forms of abuse
Philipp Rosenthal/The Digital Sherpa won’t transfer information about you to third parties for the purpose of providing or facilitating third-party advertising to you. I won’t sell information about you to a third-party.
If I are going to share your information in response to legal process, I’ll give you notice so you can challenge it (for example by seeking court intervention), unless I’re prohibited by law or believe doing so may endanger others or cause illegal conduct. I will object to legal requests for information about users of my services that I believe are improper.
Philipp Rosenthal/The Digital Sherpa uses third-party vendors and hosting partners, such as WordPress, for hardware, software, networking, storage, and related technology I need to run Philipp Rosenthal/The Digital Sherpa. I maintain two types of logs: server logs and event logs. By using the services, you authorize Philipp Rosenthal/The Digital Sherpa to transfer, store, and use your information in the United States and any other country where I operate.
Some of the content that you see displayed on Philipp Rosenthal/The Digital Sherpa is not hosted by Philipp Rosenthal/The Digital Sherpa. These “embeds” are hosted by a third-party and embedded in a Philipp Rosenthal/The Digital Sherpa page, so that it appears to be part of that page. For example: YouTube or Vimeo videos, SoundCloud audio files, Twitter tweets, or Scribd documents that appear within a Philipp Rosenthal/The Digital Sherpa post. These files send data to the hosted site just as if you were visiting that site directly (for example, when you load a Philipp Rosenthal/The Digital Sherpa post page with a YouTube video embedded in it, that video appears because of a pointer to files hosted by YouTube, and in turn YouTube receives data about your activity, such as your IP address and how much of the video you watch).
When posting on Philipp Rosenthal/The Digital Sherpa, you may not embed a form that allows submission of personal information by users. You must link offsite to a page that allows such submissions by users, and that page’s appearance must be distinct enough from Philipp Rosenthal/The Digital Sherpa to ensure it does not cause confusion among users over to whom they are submitting personal information. Failure to do so may lead Philipp Rosenthal/The Digital Sherpa to disable the post or take other action to limit or disable your account.
Tracking & Cookies
I use browser cookies and similar technologies to recognize you when you return to my services. I use them in various ways, for example to log you in, remember your preferences (such as default language), and evaluate email effectiveness.I track your interactions within the Philipp Rosenthal/The Digital Sherpa services.
Modifying or Deleting Your Personal Information
If you have a Philipp Rosenthal/The Digital Sherpa account, you can access, modify or export your personal information, or ask for them to be deleted.
To protect information from accidental or malicious destruction, I may maintain residual copies for a brief time period (generally several weeks). But, if you request deletion, your information and content will be unrecoverable after that time. Philipp Rosenthal/The Digital Sherpa may preserve and maintain copies of your information beyond this time period when required to do so by law.
I use encryption (HTTPS/TLS) to protect data transmitted to and from my site. However, no data transmission over the Internet is 100% secure, so I can’t guarantee security. You use the Service at your own risk, and you’re responsible for taking reasonable measures to secure your account.
Email from Philipp Rosenthal/The Digital Sherpa
I will never send emails to the address you provided if not actively requested by you.
Changes to this Policy
Philipp Rosenthal/The Digital Sherpa may periodically update this Policy. I’ll notify you about significant changes to it. The most current version of the policy will always be here and I will archive former versions of the policy so you can request them if required.
I welcome feedback about this policy at firstname.lastname@example.org
