Privacy Policy

Last Updated: December 02, 2020

At Adventurous Ink LLC, we’re concerned about the lack of personal privacy on the web. As individuals, we value our privacy, and therefore we operate our business with the goal of treating others the way we want to be treated.

Before you continue to spend time on our site or sign up for our newsletter, please look over the following information. It describes what data you’re allowing us to collect, and your options for removing that data should you want to.

The data we collect:

  • Technical information that’s necessary for the operation of the website. This includes things like your IP address and information about your web browser.
  • Your email address and related contact information, if you sign up for a newsletter.
  • Web analytics, so we know where our website traffic is coming from.

How we use the data:

Technical information is stored in server logs, and we (and our hosting provider) may use those logs to examine site performance, fix errors, and look for ways to improve the website. We don’t use this information for marketing purposes.

Your email address (and related contact information) are used to send you information that you requested. We store our mailing lists in the cloud on Buttondown. You may want to look at their privacy policy .

How to delete your personal information:

To remove your information from our newsletter list, click on the unsubscribe link at the bottom of any email.

How we use cookies:

Cookies are little bits of code that track you online. Sometimes they’re helpful, like the cookies that keep you logged into a website. Other cookies are invasive; they track your browsing habits and report on you to their shadowy corporate overlords. We limit our use of cookies, and we try to avoid the nasty ones entirely.

At the moment, we’re not using any cookie-enabled services on our website.

Data Sharing & Breaches

We don’t share or sell data or use any third party advertising services on this site. We don’t share our newsletter subscribers’ personal information with other authors or marketers. We don’t upload our email lists to Facebook.

We may share data when ordered to by a court of law. If the request is illegal, we’ll likely try to fight it, but our resources only go so far. Given the type of work we do, we consider court orders unlikely.

And if there’s ever a data breach on our site (although we don’t know why they’d bother) we’ll do our best to notify affected parties ASAP.

Hey, We’re Human!

We care deeply about privacy, and that’s why we do our best to keep the forces of darkness at bay. But we won’t be perfect. There may be times when a web service or plugin gathers more data than we realized. Or our newsletter service could (theoretically) get hacked, because these things happen. Therefore, we can’t guarantee your privacy 100%, but we will do our best to keep your information safe.

Do you have questions or concerns about this policy? If so, contact us .
