I hate Data Collecting!

I hate cookies. They’re tool of the Devil, that is if I believed in the Devil. I also hate spam. If there were a Devil he’d get the blame for spam too. Anyway, unless you comment,send a message, or sign up for the newsletter this site is not going to collect any data anywhere on this site. If do happen to leave a comment, send a message, or sign up for the newsletter — and I really do want you to do so — the only data collected is the data shown in the form, and your IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection. By the way, Side Street God doesn’t use Avatars in the commenting.

If you message me I promise to delete your data as soon as our correspondence is completed. If you sign up for the newsletter your data only be used to send you the newsletter. You may unsubscribe at any time, and if you do, all data is immediately deleted.

I Hate Cookies!

And I promise this site doesn’t post cookies for the sake of gathering data to sell. In fact, we don’t gather any cookies unless you want us to. And even that limited: For your convenience you may opt-in to saving your name, email address and website in cookies so that you don’t have to fill in form again. These cookies will last for one year.

Embedded content from other websites

Although rarely, this website may contain links to other websites. If you click onto these embedded items these websites may collect data about you. Once you are connected to that website, it may collect data about your interaction with Side Street God and embed other third-party tracking. As much as we might hate it, we have no control over that. In all such cases that sites privacy policy is in effect.

THE EXCEPTION is if you link to any website through the menu. All such websites are mine and follow the same privacy policy: No tracking.
