Welcome to Lauren Groveman, located at www.laurengroveman.com and owned by Lauren Groveman.
This privacy statement is being issued at this time because on May 25, 2018, the EU General Data Protection Regulation (EU (2016)/679 GDPR came into force in all EU member states. Because U.S. websites can also be accessed by Europeans, the same guidelines apply.
The GDPR applies to “personal data” gathered by a website, and it requires that all personal information be processed lawfully, fairly, and in a transparent manner, and only for legitimate purposes.
When visitors leave comments on the site, I collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the IP address and browser used by the person who is posting in order to identify and block spam. You retain the full right to request being removed from any mailings and to have any comment taken down.
Thank you for reading my site. I am always glad to hear from readers.
At Lauren Groveman, I use your information to keep track of and to reach out to those of you who have subscribed. You can manage your subscriptions by writing to me to request removal at any time: firstname.lastname@example.org
I also use visitor information to monitor my site to improve performance and to help decide what topics I cover. To that end, I use it to:
Like any business, I like to see how visitors arrive at my site. I use Google Analytics for this purpose. When I log in, I can see which pages readers have visited and the paths they took within my site. I do not see where readers go after they leave the site.
Some of the posts on Lauren Groveman link out to other articles in order to provide you with more complete information on any given topic. These websites have their own policies, and if you access them through one of the links I provide, their own privacy statements apply.
