What information do I collect?:
I do not collect any personally identifiable information from you whilst using my website.
Your name, e-mail address, IP address and location is sent to me when you send me a message using the contact form. This info, apart from maybe your name and/or location (read below), is never stored or logged in any way. I ask for your location only to find out which country's my website is reaching out to.
Your e-mail address is only ever used to reply to your message and is never logged or stored in any way, unless you specifically want some info from me at a later date, in which case, with your permission, it will be saved in some form of local text document for my private use. This text file will never be stored online in any way.
Your IP address is reported to me when you send me a message on the contact form, but this is simply ignored and deleted, unless you are sending spam or otherwise offensive text, in which case your IP address will be entered into my 'blacklist' to prevent you spamming anymore. Serious cases of spam or offensiveness may result in my using your IP address to locate you and report you to the relevant authorities. If you are a genuine person contacting me for genuine reasons, you have nothing to worry about from me getting your IP address.
Your privacy is very important to me here at normsweb.com, however I do reserve the right to use any part of any message you send to me on the website. You will be credited for any message text I use, by your first name only, for example: 'Dave from London' so no-one but you will know its you that sent it.
When you make a donation on the donate page, this is done via the secure paypal website and I have no access to any credit/debit card or banking information. The paypal receipt that paypal sends me, does sometimes contain your home address, but this is not stored or logged in any way. Your full name and donated amount is usually logged in a text file, but this is only ever used for my personal references so I can keep track of who has donated and how much. This text file is only ever stored on a local computer and is never stored online in any way. You will be credited on the website for your donation, but only by your first name and first two letters of your last name, followed by four stars (for example: Dave Gr****) which makes it impossible for anyone (but you) to identify yourself. If you would not like to be credited on the website for your donation, then please send me a message clearly stating this.
Do I disclose any information to outside parties?:
I do not sell, trade, or otherwise transfer any information to any outside parties.
Third party links:
Any third party sites I may link to, will have separate and independent privacy policies. I therefore have no responsibility or liability for the content and activities of these linked sites. Nonetheless, I seek to protect the integrity of my site and welcome any feedback about these sites, and any inappropriate links that are brought to my attention will be removed ASAP.
Children's Online Privacy Protection Act Compliance:
I am in compliance with the requirements of COPPA (Children's Online Privacy Protection Act), I do not collect any information from anyone under 13 years of age. My website is directed to people who are at least 13 years old or older.
