Please take the time to read this notice before using this blog. By using this blog, you agree to these terms and conditions.
As the owner of “The Art Dive” blog I do not share with third parties personal information collected through WordPress.com.
As regards the data from visitors who only read my blog, I only have access to some of the anonymous information WordPress.com collects via your internet browser cookies, and I use that information in order to analyze content performance (things like post and page views and countries visitors hail from).
If you follow this blog as a WordPress.com user I’ll have access only to your WordPress.com display name and account username. You can also opt to receive emails about new posts on this blog as a non-Wordpress.com member, in which case I’ll have access to the email address you provide. In both cases you can unsubscribe following the instructions and link in each subscriber email you receive.
If you leave a comment on my blog, I’ll have access to your name, email, IP address, and, optional for non-Wordpress.com users, website address—if you’re signed onto WordPress.com the above will be submitted automatically, with your name as your WordPress.com display name and your website address as your WordPress.com blog address.
If you write to me via the Contact form, I’ll have access to the name you provide there, to your email address, your IP address, and your website URL, if you provide one.
I will never sell, rent, or lease your personal data to a third party, and may use it only to contact you to address the issues you raise in your communication to me.
As this blog is hosted by WordPress.com, you will see advertising displayed by WordPress.com. WordPress.com and third parties providing that advertising have access to your cookie data for purposes such as statistics (based on first-party cookies) and advertising (based on third-party cookies), the latter tailored for your country and browser language, for instance. Cookies can be useful—they make it easier to stay registered on sites, for one—but if you want you can disable persistent cookies by choosing from the Settings>Privacy menu of your internet browser to delete local data after you quit the browser. You can also turn third-party cookies off, if you wish.
I carefully prepare the information presented on this blog, but by using “The Art Dive” you expressly agree that you do so at your sole risk. You also expressly agree that I shall not be held liable for errors or omissions, or for any loss or damage resulting from your use of the content of this blog, including links I post to other websites in or outside the WordPress.com network, or for any failure of performance or security breach on the part of WordPress.com or Gmail. That said, it is my belief that WordPress.com and Gmail use reasonable and appropriate physical, electronic, and administrative safeguards to protect personal data from loss, misuse, unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, and destruction, taking into account the nature of any collected data and the risks involved in processing that information.
This blog is not directed to and I do not knowingly collect personal data from children under the age of 13. If I become aware that a child under the age of 13 has provided me with personal data, I will take steps to remove such data. If you become aware that your child has provided me with personal data without your consent, please contact me via the Contact form.
