Who I am
My website address is: https://indiyoung.com. I am based near San Francisco, CA. Research project team members include experts in several other locations in the US, Canada, Mexico, and Australia.
Your data that I collect & protect
Email sent to me is kept in my email archive. This archive primarily exists on my own hard drive (after routing through Google mail, which I clean out every few months). If someone gets access to my hard drive, then … that would be terrible. I have no idea how I would deal. No matter what, if you contact me, your email address is vulnerable via this scenario.
Course sign-ups are tracked in Memberpress as well as in a Google sheet. A record of purchases is stored in my PayPal and Stripe accounts, and notifications are archived for a few months in my email archive, then cleaned out.
Course communications are sometimes sent to the group of participants in each class. Communication also appears within your account in Memberpress on this site. I also have a Slack workspace where we can all collaborate, as well as shared homework assignments in Google drive, Mural, and Miro. All of these locations will be using your email address to signify you.
Cookies will be used when I turn on the subscription service to my lecture-based professional courses. These have not yet been created as of January 2020. When the subscription service is implemented, if you have an account and you log in to this site, I 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, I 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.
Analytics track page traffic, which I look at to see if any content should be surfaced differently to make it easier for visitors.
Comments for this site are turned off. Comments are welcome on my Medium publication Inclusive Software.
A data breach of your email address from my hard drive or Google backups is possible, and I have no procedure in place to deal with such a scenario. All your payment transactions are wholly within the PayPal and Stripe servers.
I share no data. I do not share your data with anyone. I don’t do any profiling or decision making based on this data. My assistant helps me track your data and send you responses regarding your purchase of courses.
I do not receive data from any third-party, except notifications of purchases from PayPal and Stripe.
