Collection and Use of Personal and Anonymous Information
Personal information is defined as data that can be used to identify you, and possibly contact you. I maintain strict standards when I work with personal information.
Anonymous information is information that cannot be used to identify you.
I will collect and use your information in the following ways:
1. When you browse the Against All Grain Website
I use several tools to see how you interact with the Against All Grain website. I use this data to improve my site so that you are able to find more relevant information faster. The way that I track your visits is through Google Analytics. Google Analytics uses your IP address to see what pages you browse, for how long and what website you were browsing before you came to the site.
2. When you fill out a web form to Subscribe to my Mailing List
When browsing my website, you may fill-out my MailChimp web form that may ask for your name, address, phone number, and email address. The information you enter into is used to contact you to share recent blog posts, and keep you informed on any updates to my website. At any time, you are able to ask me to delete your data, or you may unsubscribe using the link at the bottom of any email sent to you.
I will always treat your info with the highest regard
In all cases, I adhere to the strictest of policies regarding the use of personal information once collected. I directly do not disclose this information to any third-parties, except those listed below.
Disclosure to Third Parties
I may employ third party companies to facilitate providing you valuable services. For example, I use a cloud based email marketing management tool called MailChimp to better connect with you as my reader. In all instances I make sure that your data is transferred over a secure transmission link and that the third parties I use have the highest quality security standards in place. Today, I use two main cloud service providers to best serve you as the customer. I’ve included their website addresses and links to their security policies below for your ease of reference:
I can only provide so much content to you for free without going bankrupt or having my husband pull the plug. To that end, I’ve put advertisements on the right side-bar of my site. These ads are served by the Google Adsense platform. As I am sure you are aware, these ads can be directly tied to search terms you put in to Google. As such, these ads also track items that I am not in control over. However, should you see ads that are offensive, or crude, please notify my immediately at: email@example.com so I can remove them from my Adsense account.

In addition, I use the WP-DoNotTrack plugin to comply with people who wish not to be tracked while on the website. Should you not wish to be tracked, please select the Do Not Track option from your internet browser.

California Privacy Rights
California Civil Code Section 1798.83 and Business and Professions Code Section 22575 permits visitors who are California residents to request that I not share their personal information with third parties for such direct marketing purposes. If you would still like to make such a request, send an email with “California Privacy” in the subject line to the email address specified in “Contact Information,” below.
