I do use third-party advertising companies and plug-ins that collect certain information about your activities while on my site. This collection allows me to better develop the services I provide and for my advertisers to better tailor ads for goods or services to your interests. The Florida Blog will never sell or share personally identifiable information such as names or email addresses. I wouldn’t want my data sold to some spammy email company, so I would never do that to anyone else.
When Names Or Email Addresses Are Required
There are only specific instances in which your names, email addresses or mailing addresses are required:
- Registering for my email newsletter requires your name and email address.
- Registering to comment on my blog posts requires your name and email address.
- Communicating with me via the form on the “Contact” page requires your name and email address.
- Using the Commentluv plug-in when leaving a comment requires a website address.
- Winning a blog contest or give-away requires your name and mailing address (emailed privately to email@example.com) for prize delivery.
On all of these occasions, I am the only individual seeing your personal info. This blog is a one-woman show, I am the only person checking emails/messages or writing out labels.

Your Data Rights
If you are a registered user or have left comments on our site you can request to see or download the data we have about you. Typically for visitors that have left comments, the data will be their email address, any IP addresses assigned to them at the time of leaving the comments and the user agent strings of the browsers they used. The rest of the data is public as published by the visitors themselves. For registered users, this will also include profile information and download and contact histories.
You can also request “to be forgotten” and we will erase any personally identifiable data we have about you. Of course, this excludes data we need for administrative or security purposes or if we are required by law to retain some of the data. An individual who seeks access, or who seeks to correct, amend, or delete inaccurate data, should direct their query to firstname.lastname@example.org. We will respond within a reasonable timeframe, not to exceed one week.
