What personal data we collect and why we collect it

Comments

When visitors leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.

An anonymized string created from your email address (also called a hash) may be provided to the Gravatar service to see if you are using it. The Gravatar service privacy policy is available here: https://automattic.com/privacy/. After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.

Media

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.

What you can expect to receive as a Hitch, Pitch, & Flip (HPF) email subscriber

I hate spam. My inbox is constantly full and the last thing I want is useless junk. I also hate to sign up for one thing and get something completely different. Makes me angry.

So, my commitment to you is simple… I will not send you irrelevant emails.

All of the email opt in forms on HPF automatically trigger an email series based on your interest.

I do not currently send any other emails than the automated weekly RSS feed.  If and when that changes I will update this policy here.  Current update is 6/3/2018.

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.

These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracing your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.
