What personal data we collect and why we collect it

Comments

Comments are not permitted so no data is collected or shared in consequence of them.

Media

Visitors to our website are not permitted to upload images or other media. So no data is collected or shared via uploaded media.

Contact forms

The information you provide when you use a contact form on our website is NOT stored anywhere on the website or our server but is transmitted via email from the website to our offices. We store emails on our networked hard drives, behind hardware and software firewalls. We also store emails in cloud storage operated by Rackspace, Google and Microsoft.

Cookies

Visitors to our website cannot leave comments, create accounts, log in, edit or publish articles, so no cookies are set.

Embedded content from other websites

We offer sharing buttons for social media — Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, Google, etc. — provided by Automattic, the company that makes the WordPress software that powers our website. Using these buttons will provide anonymous demographic data to the media platform(s) you choose and to Automattic.

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.

Analytics, SEO, and Security

Anonymous demographic data about you is also collected by third-party software, including but not limited to Google and Bing Analytics, Yoast SEO, and Wordfence Security. The data is used to improve website performance, perform search engine optimization, and to protect the website against hacking, viruses and other malware.

Who we share your data with

We collect no data, other than that which you submit in a contact form, and we share no data about you, other than anonymous demographic data.

How long we retain your data

We do not collect your data, except that which you share via a contact form. That data is retained indefinitely.

What rights you have over your data

You can request that we erase any personal data we hold about you at any time. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes — if any.

Where we send your data

We use an automated spam detection service — Google reCaptcha — to block malicious use of our contact forms.

Your contact information

Our contact forms collect your name and email address, and optionally your telephone number, and any other information you volunteer. You do not have to use a contact form or provide any information in order to use our website.

Additional information

This website has been designed to market our company in the greater New York, New Jersey, and Connecticut region. We routinely block overseas visitors since we cannot do business with them and most website attacks originate overseas.
