Who we are
Alex Tucker (alextucker.ca) values your privacy and responsibly collects and uses some personal information. This policy will outline what and why as clearly as possible. Please carefully read this policy in order to understand your rights and responsibilities as they pertain to this website, and how to contact me or supervisory authorities in case you have a complaint.
Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act
This website and any services or suggestions offered within are not intended for people under the age of 13. Alex Tucker does not knowingly collect information from anyone under 13 years of age, and prohibits children under 13 from using any interactive parts of the site, including but not limited to leaving comments, filling out forms, booking appointments, sending emails, or submitting information in any other way. In the event Alex Tucker learns he has collected information or content from anyone under the age of 13, he will delete that information or content.
What personal data we collect and use
Alex Tucker may collect and use data which visitors enter on the site through contact forms, optin forms, and other means. The data shown in the form is collected, as is the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection. You do not need to provide any personal information just to visit or view the website.
If you upload images to the website, 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.
If you enter your information into a contact form or otherwise subscribe to our mailing list, you are giving me permission to contact you for any reason including but not limited to marketing and sales purposes. In the event that you are added to a mailing list, I will only seek to send you quality content, but it will always be easy for you to unsubscribe.
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.
If you have an account and you log in to this site, the site will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.
When you log in, the site will also set up several cookies to save your login information and your screen display choices. Login cookies last for two days, and screen options cookies last for a year. If you select “Remember Me”, your login will persist for two weeks. If you log out of your account, the login cookies will be removed.
If you edit or publish an article, an additional cookie will be saved in your browser. This cookie includes no personal data and simply indicates the post ID of the article you just edited. It expires after 1 day.
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.
This website uses google analytics and search console to track usage and statistics.
This website may have a Facebook Pixel installed, which collects information and sends it to Facebook for advertising and retargeting purposes.
Information Collected from Other Sources
We may also collect your name, email, discord name, and other information from other sources such as ConvertKit, ConvertBox, Mailchimp, Campaign Monitor, and others.
Who we share your data with
We will not sell, trade, or otherwise transfer your information to third parties (beyond what is necessary for security, maintenance, and marketing purposes.)
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.
For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.
If you subscribe to a mailing list, your information will be retained until you unsubscribe or otherwise ask for it to be deleted.
What rights you have over your data
If you have an account on this site, or 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.
Your contact information
I will take reasonable precautions to protect your contact information and will not share it for any reason, excepting with the companies that manage my client information such as but not limited to Mailchimp, Campaign Monitor, and HubSpot.
Links to Other Websites
Although Alex Tucker makes every effort to only link to secure, reputable sites, I cannot be held liable for the content, actions, or practices of those sites.
Some links on alextucker.ca are affiliate links; this means that if you click on them and then make a purchase, I may receive a commission. Affiliate links will be clearly labeled as such or appear in the form of banner ads. Affiliate links may also add cookies to your browser in order to track purchases.
How we protect your data
All data entered at alextucker.ca should be encrypted via Cpanel; if you do not see the locked icon in your address bar, please contact Alex Tucker at your earliest convenience. Alex Tucker is committed to protecting your information, and takes appropriate precautions to prevent unauthorized access or tampering. While no computer system can be perfectly secure, the practices observed in collecting and storing your information should keep it secure and the likelihood of a security breach should be minimal.
What data breach procedures we have in place
In the event of a potential security breach, you will be notified as soon as reasonably possible.
This policy may be updated or modified at any time without warning, however in the event of significant changes an email will be sent out summarizing the changes and providing a link to the updated content.
