Terms of Service

Comments

This site allows users to leave comments on blog posts. Comments considered spam, hateful, obscene, not adding value to the overall conversation (please see prior examples), or otherwise just plain annoying will be removed. If your comment is removed, it’s simply removed, and you will not be notified. If you continue to make defamatory comments or comments I find unhelpful up to three times or more you will be blocked from leaving comments on future posts.

Intellectual Property

This site contains intellectual property owned by Meighan O’Toole. I am always delighted when my content is shared. If you would like to share my content in a blog post, article, etc please use no more than a single paragraph and provide a link back to the original article. Any use beyond this is not authorized without my prior written consent.

If you would like to obtain consent, please email me at hi@meighanotoole.com.

Privacy Policy

This site collects information on you in two ways.

1. Information that you manually provide by leaving a comment, and or filling out a contact forms. This information (your name, email, etc.) can be tied directly to you because of the information you’ve provided.

2. The information that’s automatically collected via third-party partners (Google Analytics, Mailchimp, SquareSpace, SumoMe, etc) included on this site so that I may deliver content to you. The types of information collected here include things like your IP address, location, pages visited, and browser type. Generally our third-party partners only give us this information in the aggregate (e.g. it’s not identifiable to you personally) but sometimes this information can be directly tied to you (e.g. MailChimp may track the IP address that you used to confirm your subscription to my newsletter), but honestly it would take me a lot of time, energy, and hoops to jump through to identify you if I actually even requested it. Which in all probability won't.

Most of this information is only used in the aggregate to create a profile of our readers and the types of content that you, as our readers, most identify with. The information collected is only shared with others if required by our terms of service/agreement with those parties, or if we are legally required to by law.

If you would like to not have your data collected by my site then please do not visit, leave a comment, or try and contact me through the site. If you really want to know what information I have that’s directly attributable to you, please contact me at hi@meighanotoole.com and I'll provide a response within 24-72 hours.
