What personal data we collect and why we collect it
Personal data is only collected by this site if provided by the user. Names and e-mail addresses are collected by active consent through one of: comments, contact forms and by email subscription for the expressed purpose of receiving requested content or communication. IP addresses may be collected by spam protection in the comments or any other technical service listed below.
When visitors leave comments on the site I collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.
If you upload images to the website in a comment, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the website.
I use a contact form on my website. I keep these submissions for customer service purposes only and DO NOT use the information submitted through them for marketing purposes unless specifically requested by you.
If you sign up to receive the Newsletter or Blog, I use Mailchimp to manage my lists. NO information collected is ever shared or used for any other purpose but to deliver the requested content.
If you leave a comment on my site you may opt-in to saving your name, email address and website in cookies. These are for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for one year.
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. (Most content/images are my own, but I do post videos to YouTube and they would classify as embedded content. External links will have their own policies.)
We use standard Google Analytics.
Who do we share your data with?
Michelle committed is committed to protecting your privacy.
Any information you provide to Michelle, including your e-mail address, is for the sole use of the artist and shall not be shared with any other individual, corporation or similar cultural organization without your knowledge and consent. We do not rent, trade nor sell our lists.
How long we retain your data
If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.
What rights you have over your data
If you have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.
Where we send your data
Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service. If you signed up for the Blog or Newsletter, which may include your name and e-mail address, I use Mailchimp to manage those sign up lists and those lists are not shared.
If you have concerns, please use my contact page to reach me with any questions.
