If you sign up to receive my newsletter, you provide your name and email address, which are used solely for the delivery of the newsletter to your inbox. I would never share them with any “third parties.” You can always unsubscribe by clicking the red UNSUBSCRIBE link in the top right corner of any edition of the newsletter.
If you choose to sponsor The Mirandolan — thank you! — you provide your name, sponsorship amount, and payment card information or the equivalent. The secure financial service provider that handles these transactions (PayPal and Payoneer) will receive your payment card information, which will only be used to process your payment. (If you support on a regular basis, you can cancel this anytime.)
If you contact me via email, either by writing to me directly or by replying to the automated email newsletter, I will receive your email address and any other information you choose to provide.
I use statistical analytics to help me understand how my readers use the websites. This means that anonymized information of the pages The Mirandolan readers visit and the times of those visits are represented in these statistics.
What The Mirandolan Does with Your Information
I use your information solely to communicate with you if you have opted in to receive the newsletter, to facilitate sponsorship payments, and to better understand how you use the site in order to improve it. I don’t share your information with any “third parties,” though it does live — securely — within the external services that deliver the email newsletter (MailChimp) and process sponsorship transactions (PayPal).
As The Mirandolan is based in the United States, if you visit the website from another country, your data may be transferred to the United States and other countries that may not have the same data protection laws as the country in which you initially provided information.
I do everything I can to make The Mirandolan and your information as secure as possible. However, this is the Internet — no security measures can be 100% secure for reasons far beyond any one person’s intent and control. I too, along with my entire website and any data related to it, can be on the receiving end of some cyber attack at any given moment.
