Google & Squarespace Analytics
I collect data through Google Forms for my writing workshops and scholarship applications to those workshops. The data they provide, like their first and last name, email address, and/or demographics is only shared with the author I’m hosting the workshop with and the readers of the scholarship applications listed on the application forms. To have this information deleted from the application forms at any time, applicants can contact me here. I do not sell, rent, or trade the data I collect through the workshop or scholarship application process.
The contact form on this site collects first name, last name, email address, subject, and message and sends that in an email to my inbox (hosted by Google.) I use the information in the email sent to me to be able to respond back to messages. I use a password management site (with 2FA enabled) to manage my passwords. If you ever message me through the form and would like me to permanently delete those messages, you can contact me to do so.
When a user signs up to my email list I collect their first name, last name, and email address. I collect this information for accuracy and security (so I know who I am communicating with) and so I can reach users who sign up to receive emails from me. I use a third-party provider, MailChimp, to acquire this information and to deliver list emails. I gather statistics around email opening and clicks using MailChimp’s platform to better understand what content my subscribers are reading and interested in.
As I mentioned above, your privacy is very important. To further protect your privacy (and mine) I use two-factor authentication (2FA) to access Squarespace and MailChimp and use a password management site (with 2FA enabled) to manage my passwords.
