Privacy Policy

We respect your privacy at aprilyamasaki.com with these basic principles:

  • We ask for personal information only when necessary (e.g., if you’d like to receive our free email updates, we ask for your name and email address, and that’s it).
  • We keep your personal information confidential and do not sell, lease, or distribute our subscriber list.
  • We store personal information on our servers only as needed for the on-going operation of our site.

Website Visitors

We use the fully hosted WordPress.com as our publishing platform. Like most website operators, WordPress.com collects some technical data automatically, such as IP addresses and browser types. In other cases, website visitors may disclose information, such as their name and email address when leaving a comment.

When a visitor discloses information meant to be public (such as liking an article or leaving a comment), that information is displayed publicly. Other non-personally identifying information may be aggregated and released, for example to report on usage trends.

For details on how WordPress.com processes information in connection with its services including the Akismet anti-spam service, please see the WordPress Privacy Notice.

Subscribers

We use MailChimp to send free email updates to subscribers. You may unsubscribe at any time by using the unsubscribe link at the bottom of any of our emails or by contacting us. For details on how MailChimp processes information in connection with its services, please see the MailChimp Privacy Policy

Cookies

A cookie is a string of information that a website stores on a visitor’s computer, and that the visitor’s browser provides to the website each time the visitor returns. For example, WordPress.com uses cookies to identify the number of unique visitors to this website, which allows us to measure traffic and the most popular articles. If you do not wish to have cookies placed on your devices, simply set your browser to refuse cookies, but be aware that this may interfere with the functioning of some features. For more details, please see the WordPress.com Cookie Policy.
