When you visit my websites, there is a limited amount of information that is automatically collected about you without your direct input. This information includes the following:

The Cloudflare Web Analytics service does not place cookies on your device(s), collect your personal information, or track you across websites. Your log data does not allow me or Cloudflare to personally identify you, as it does not “fingerprint” you via your IP address, User Agent string, or any other data. Your log data allows me to see how my websites are performing around the world while still keeping your privacy intact. I chose Cloudflare Web Analytics as the service to collect log data on my websites because they have a privacy-first approach. By visiting my websites, you are subject to Cloudflare’s Privacy Policy as an “End User” (https://www.cloudflare.com/privacypolicy/).

  • Your Internet Protocol (IP) address is automatically collected by Mad Mimi (https://madmimi.com) when you actively fill out the form to subscribe to my newsletter (https://newsletter.connorhatch.com) & when you actively confirm your subscription to my newsletter through the confirmation email that is sent to you.

Security of your information once it is collected

Your information is used only for the purposes outlined above. It is stored by the third-party services & companies outlined above & is subject to those companies’ respective security policies & practices. Although I do my best to only use the most secure services & technologies available to me on my websites, it is important to acknowledge that no method of electronic transmission or storage is 100% secure, & no one can guarantee absolute data security. I will protect your information within commercially acceptable & reasonable means to prevent loss & theft, as well as unauthorized access, disclosure, copying, use, or modification. I may disclose your information to courts, tribunals, regulatory authorities, & law enforcement officers, as required by law, in connection with any actual or prospective legal proceedings or in order to establish, exercise, or defend my legal rights.
