Denizen Planet Privacy Statement

Last updated August 13, 2021

We occasionally collect personal information in the regular course of running this website. This document lets you know exactly how we’re protecting the information you entrust to us.

What personal information do you collect about me?

If you comment on an article or sign up for our newsletter we will collect the following information, however, the ONLY information we would make public is the user name you choose to use:

  • The user name you provide is shared publicly if you comment on an article
  • Email Address is collected but not shared publicly
  • Website address if you entered one is collected but not shared publicly

When you visit our website, we may also collect (through Google Analytics):

Google Analytics collects general information about your computer, including your IP address, the type of operating system and browser you use, and your computer’s general location [country and perhaps city], what pages you visit on our site, and what links you click on are collected by Google Analytics. We really should look at this information, but so far we haven’t.

How do you use this information?

The main reasons we collect personal information from you are:

  • To allow you to make a comment on an article.
  • To allow you to sign up for our new article alerts
  • If you do a search we only look at the search term used which may help us improve our search function. We do not collect information on who has used our search function.

Sharing of Personal Information with Third Parties

With the exception of Google Analytics (see above), we do not knowingly share your personal information with anyone. It is possible/probable that some companies you have visited are using cookies to track your web browsing habits, which may include information about a visit to this site, but this is outside of our control.  If this is a concern you should remove all cookies from your computer and clean your cache every time you close your browser.

We will disclose your personal information if we are required by law to do so.

How do you get my consent?

When you comment on an article or send us an email you are consenting to the collection of the personal information you are providing.

How do I opt out?

Opting out is simple. Don’t send us an email or comment on an article. If we ask you for information and you don’t want to provide it, then don’t. It is as easy as that.
