Effective Date: January 27, 2021

The following Privacy Policy governs the online information collection practices of Eric Garza, an individual who lives in the state of Vermont, in the United States of America, and who maintains the personal website EricGarza.info (the “Site”). This policy outlines the types of information Eric’s website gathers about you while you are using it.

First, I respect your privacy and the rights to control your personal data. I want to be clear about the data I collect, and why I collect it. The data this website gathers is protected, and I do not and will not sell, rent, or give your data to third parties except when required to do so by law. This privacy statement explains the information I collect and how I will use it. Please read this statement carefully to understand how I may collect, use, and share your personal information.

This Privacy Policy, including my children’s privacy statement, does not apply to any information you may provide to me or that I may collect offline and/or through other means (for example, at a live event, via telephone, or through the mail).

By visiting and using my Site, you agree that your use of the Site, and any dispute over privacy, is governed by this Privacy Policy. Because the Web is an evolving medium, I may need to change my Privacy Policy at some point in the future, in which case I will post the changes to this Privacy Policy on this website and update the Effective Date of the policy to reflect the date of the changes. By continuing to use the Site after I post any such changes, you accept the Privacy Policy as modified.

How I Collect and Use Information

I may collect and store personal or other information that you voluntarily supply to me online while using the Site (e.g., while on the Site or in responding via email to a feature provided on the Site). I only contact individuals who specifically request and consent that I do so or in the event that they have signed up to receive updates or attended one of my events. All of this information is consensually provided by you, the user.

I also, with your consent, collect and store information that is generated automatically as you navigate online through the Site. For example, I may collect information about your computer’s connection to the Internet, which allows me, among other things, to improve the delivery of our web pages to you and to measure traffic on the Site. I also may use a standard feature found in browser software called a “cookie” to enhance your experience with the Site. Cookies are small files that your web browser places on your hard drive for record-keeping purposes. By showing how and when visitors use the Site, cookies help me identify how many unique users visit me and track user trends and patterns. They also prevent you from having to re-enter your preferences on certain areas of the Site where you may have entered preference information before. The Site also may use web beacons (single-pixel graphic files also known as “transparent GIFs”) to access cookies and to count users who visit the Site or open HTML-formatted email messages.

I do not share your information with third parties for any purpose, except as required by law. I do use your email address to send you updates about new content and inform you of products, services, and events that may be of interest to you (unless you instruct me otherwise). If you do not wish to continue to receive these communications, you may click the “unsubscribe” link provided at the bottom of the email to remove yourself completely from my database, or you may also send a request to be removed from my database to the email listed at the end of this Privacy Policy.

Please keep in mind that whenever you consent to making your personal information available for viewing by third parties online – for example in blog comments, or through email – that information can be seen, collected and used by others besides me. I cannot be responsible for any unauthorized third-party use of such information.

Be aware that I may occasionally release information about my visitors when release is required to comply with law or to protect the rights, property or safety of users of the Site or the public.

You may contact me at any time to request the information I store about you, or to delete your information or data. I will reply to these requests within the time requirements of applicable law.

Children’s Privacy Statement

This children’s privacy statement explains my practices with respect to the online collection and use of personal information from children under the age of thirteen, and provides important information regarding their rights under federal law with respect to such information.

  • This Site is not directed to children under the age of thirteen and I do NOT knowingly collect personally identifiable information from children under the age of thirteen as part of the Site. I screen users who wish to provide personal information in order to prevent users under the age of thirteen from providing such information. If I become aware that I have inadvertently received personally identifiable information from a user under the age of thirteen as part of the Site, I will delete such information from my records. If I change my practices in the future, I will obtain prior, verifiable parental consent before collecting any personally identifiable information from children under the age of thirteen as part of the Site. 
  • Because I do not collect any personally identifiable information from children under the age of thirteen as part of the Site, I also do NOT knowingly distribute such information to third parties.
  • I do NOT knowingly allow children under the age of thirteen to publicly post or otherwise distribute personally identifiable contact information through the Site.
  • Because I do not collect any personally identifiable information from children under the age of thirteen as part of the Site, I do NOT condition the participation of a child under thirteen in the Site’s online activities on providing personally identifiable information.

How do we store your information?

Your information is stored at the list server that delivers EricGarza.info content and messaging. Your information can only be accessed by those who help manage those lists in order to deliver e-mail to those who would like to receive EricGarza.info material.

All of the messaging or emails that are sent to you by EricGarza.info include an unsubscribe link in them. You can remove yourself at any time from our mailing list by clicking on the unsubscribe link that can be found in every communication that we send you.

Disclaimer

Although it is highly unlikely, this policy may be changed at any time at our discretion. If I should update this policy, I will post the updates to this page on my website.
