This is the standard WordPress Privacy Policy page. To be honest, I don’t understand half of what’s written here. But I’m told that my WordPress sites should have this page because reasons. I can tell you my sole interest with this site is promoting my artwork. And that’s all I’m doing; showing off my artwork.. Anything else is entirely on WordPress and or Yahoo Small Business. All the technical ‘under the hood’ stuff is their doing. – jay trefethen

Who we are

My name is Jay Trefethen. My e-mail is If you have any questions please feel free to contact me. For the rest of this statement, the “I” in the text refers to me, and the “we” in the text refers to me and everyone else involved with creating this web site, including, Yahoo Small Business, MonsterInsights, Google Analytics and a bunch of other people and organizations.

This Privacy Policy refers to this web site only, website address is:

What personal data we collect and why we collect it


When visitors leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.

An anonymized string created from your email address (also called a hash) may be provided to the Gravatar service to see if you are using it. The Gravatar service privacy policy is available here: After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.


If you upload images to the website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the website.

Contact forms

I don’t have any contact forms on this site at this time.


If you send me an e-mail, I may keep it for as long as I like. I reserve the right to do so. I will not share this e-mail with anyone unless I get permission to do so from you first.


If you leave a comment on our site you may opt-in to saving your name, email address and website in cookies. These are for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for one year.

If you have an account and you log in to this site, we will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.

When you log in, we will also set up several cookies to save your login information and your screen display choices. Login cookies last for two days, and screen options cookies last for a year. If you select “Remember Me”, your login will persist for two weeks. If you log out of your account, the login cookies will be removed.

If you edit or publish an article, an additional cookie will be saved in your browser. This cookie includes no personal data and simply indicates the post ID of the article you just edited. It expires after 1 day.

Embedded content from other websites

Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.

These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracking your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.


We use Google Analytics and the MonsterInsights Plugin to monitor traffic. I do not save this data. I use it only for aiding my efforts to increase traffic to my web site. What Google does or MontserInsights does with this data is anyone’s guess. Check with their Policies if you are concerned.

Who we share your data with

I don’t share your data with anyone. Period. However, as I’ve mentioned before, I don’t have much control of what goes on under the hood. Yahoo,, Google and a half dozen Plugin makers have their fingers in this website pie.

How long we retain your data

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.

For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.

What rights you have over your data

If you have an account on this site, or have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.

Where we send your data

Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.

Your contact information

I don’t share your contact information with anyone.

Additional information

Nothing comes to mind at the moment. As I’ve said before, please feel free to contact me if you have any questions. Thanks.

Oh Come On

You actually read this whole thing, all the way to the end? Jeez, who does that? For crying out loud, get a life!

Just kidding.
