I take your privacy seriously. It’s ethical, it’s fair, it’s the right thing to do, and besides, the GDPR requires it.
This policy covers all information that I collect and receive from your use of adamwilt.com and from any electronic communications you have with me. This includes information related to your use of my products and services, and information about you that is personally identifiable, such as your name, address, email address, IP address, and phone number.
adamwilt.com contains links to other websites. adamwilt.com is not responsible for the content or privacy practices of those other sites, and this Policy does not apply to the practices of any entities other than Adam J. Wilt and adamwilt.com, even if web links refer to those other entities.
If you contact me — via email, twitter, telephone, or otherwise — you provide me with “personally identifiable information”, “personal information”, or “personal data”. This information may consist of your name, email address, twitter handle, mailing address, telephone number, and/or other data that can be used to identify you. You are not required to supply any such information to use adamwilt.com. None of this information is collected unless you contact me directly and provide that information.
When you visit a page on adamwilt.com, the web server records each request for a resource (html page, css file, image, etc.) in a log. Here is a small sample, with the real IP address replaced with a fake one:
192.168.123.134 - - [24/May/2018:06:56:31 -0700] "GET /fieldmonitor/ HTTP/1.1" 200
5379 "https://www.google.com/" "Mozilla/5.0 (iPhone; CPU iPhone OS 11_3 like Mac OS X)
AppleWebKit/605.1.15 (KHTML, like Gecko) Version/11.0 Mobile/15E148 Safari/604.1"
192.168.123.134 - - [24/May/2018:06:56:31 -0700] "GET /fieldmonitor/ajwstyles.css HTTP/1.1" 200 969 "https://www.adamwilt.com/fieldmonitor/" "Mozilla/5.0 (iPhone; CPU iPhone OS 11_3 like Mac OS X) AppleWebKit/605.1.15 (KHTML, like Gecko) Version/11.0 Mobile/15E148 Safari/604.1"
192.168.123.134 - - [24/May/2018:06:56:31 -0700] "GET /fieldmonitor/FieldMonitor-Icon-120.png HTTP/1.1" 200 23178 "https://www.adamwilt.com/fieldmonitor/" "Mozilla/5.0 (iPhone; CPU iPhone OS 11_3 like Mac OS X) AppleWebKit/605.1.15 (KHTML, like Gecko) Version/11.0 Mobile/15E148 Safari/604.1"
The IP address, shown here as
192.168.123.134, is the address of the
requester. If these had been your requests, that would be your IP address shown, or the IP
address of whatever gateway your ISP used to pass on the request.
Every web server in commercial service collects these logs, as far as I know. My web hosting provider tells me that it is not able to turn off this logging: it is required as part of providing the web service. I have configured the server to purge those logs on a daily basis, and older logs are not archived.
CineMeter, CineMeter II, and FieldMonitor pages used Google Analytics prior to 25 May 2018. The tracking code on those pages was removed and the Google Analytics account was deleted on 24 May 2018. For a short while, cached copies of those pages may still contain tracking code, but the underlying tracking account no longer exists.
If you viewed photo gallery pages prior to 25 May 2018 and you changed the background page color using the on-page links, you may have a cookie on your system saying, for example, “pagecolor=white”. The cookie contains no tracking information and it expires five years after it was set. You can delete it with no negative side effects, except that gallery pages freshly visited will default to a dark gray background.
Information you provide may be used to respond to your requests. The IP address found in web log resource requests is used by my web hosting provider to create usage statistics. Beyond those cases, I have no interest in nor use for your personal information. Your information is not used for mailing lists (as I don’t have any), or for my own marketing except with your explicit written permission. I do not disclose your information to third parties for direct marketing purposes. I do not disclose your information to any other third party, except if and when required by law.
If you are in the European Union, you may have the legal right to deletion of your personal data. Whether or not you are in the EU, if you wish to access, change or delete personal data I hold about you, please contact me. I will respond as promptly as possible and comply as soon as it is practical to do so and to the extent possible (personal data may be retained if needed to resolve technical issues, commercial or legal disputes, or when required by law).
I use reasonable and appropriate measures to help protect the integrity and security of personal information that I collect and maintain. I cannot, however, ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to me, and you do so at your own risk. I also cannot guarantee that such information may not be accessed, disclosed, altered, or destroyed by breach of any of my physical, technical, or managerial safeguards. If I learn of a breach, then I will attempt to notify you electronically so that you can take appropriate protective steps. I will also post a notice on adamwilt.com if a security breach occurs.
adamwilt.com is hosted in the United States and is intended for users located both within and outside the United States. If you choose to visit adamwilt.com or correspond with Adam J. Wilt from the European Economic Area (EEA) or other countries that have laws governing data collection and use that may differ from U.S. law, note that you are transferring your personal information to the United States for storage and processing. By providing any information, including personal information, to Adam J. Wilt or adamwilt.com, you consent to such transfer, storage, and processing. Note that there are risks to permitting such transfers, as the laws of the U.S. or other jurisdictions may not provide you with privacy guarantees, remedies, or other protection equivalent to those of the EEA or the country where you are located.
