This privacy notice discloses the privacy practices for Matthew Klodt Web Design. This privacy notice applies solely to information collected by this website. It will notify you of the following:
- What personally identifiable information is collected from you through my website, how it is used and with whom it may be shared.
- What choices are available to you regarding the use of your data.
- The security procedures in place to protect the misuse of your information.
- How you can correct any inaccuracies in the information.
Who we are
The purpose of this website is to create a portfolio of my most recent website development, eCommerce optimization, and online marketing projects I’ve worked on and completed. My website address is: https://matthewklodt.com.
What personal data we collect and why we collect it
In this section you should note what personal data you collect from users and site visitors. This may include personal data, such as name, email address, personal account preferences; transactional data, such as purchase information; and technical data, such as information about cookies.
You should also note any collection and retention of sensitive personal data, such as data concerning health.
In addition to listing what personal data you collect, you need to note why you collect it. These explanations must note either the legal basis for your data collection and retention or the active consent the user has given.
Personal data is not just created by a user’s interactions with your site. Personal data is also generated from technical processes such as contact forms, comments, cookies, analytics, and third party embeds.
By default WordPress does not collect any personal data about visitors, and only collects the data shown on the User Profile screen from registered users. However some of your plugins may collect personal data. You should add the relevant information below.
When visitors leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.
If you upload images to the website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the website.
By default, WordPress does not include a contact form. If you use a contact form plugin, use this subsection to note what personal data is captured when someone submits a contact form, and how long you keep it. For example, you may note that you keep contact form submissions for a certain period for customer service purposes, but you do not use the information submitted through them for marketing purposes.
If you leave a comment on our site you may opt-in to saving your name, email address and website in cookies. These are for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for one year.
If you visit our login page, we 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, we 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.
If you edit or publish an article, an additional cookie will be saved in your browser. This cookie includes no personal data and simply indicates the post ID of the article you just edited. It expires after 1 day.
By default WordPress does not collect any analytics data. However, many web hosting accounts collect some anonymous analytics data. You may also have installed a WordPress plugin that provides analytics services. In that case, add information from that plugin here.
Embedded Content from Other Websites
Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.
Who we share your data with
By default WordPress does not share any personal data with anyone. The only 3rd-party web app used on matthewklodt.com that receives some of each users information and behaviors is Google Analytics.
How long we retain your data
If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.
For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.
Your Access to Your Data & Control You Have Over Your Information
You may opt-out of any future contacts from me at any time. You can do the following at any time by contacting me via the contact form or phone number given on our website:
- See what data I have about you, if any.
- Change/correct any data I have about you.
- Have me delete any data I have about you.
- Express any concern you have about our use of your data.
Where your data is sent
Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service. Analytical data about users machines and behaviors while interacting with the website is sent to Google Analytics in order to continuously make my website better for you, the users, and easier to navigate.
Information Collection, Use, and Sharing
I myself, Matthew Klodt, am the sole owner of the information collected on this site. I only have access to/collect information that you voluntarily give me via email or other direct contact from you. I will not sell or rent this information to anyone.
I will use your information to respond to you, regarding the reason you contacted me. I will not share your information with any third party outside of my services, other than as necessary to fulfill your request, e.g. to reply to you with the answer to your question.
I take precautions to protect your information. When you submit sensitive information via my website, your information is protected both online and offline.
Wherever I collect sensitive information (such as users’ email addresses), that information is encrypted and transmitted through the use of a 128-bit SSL certificate.
While I use encryption to protect sensitive information transmitted online, I also protect your information offline. I am the only person who has access to this website and am the only person who ever works on this site and has ever logged in to the admin. The computers/servers in which I store personally identifiable information are kept in a secure environment with my website hosting company, IONOS.
You can contact me, Matthew Klodt the owner of matthewklodt.com, by emailing me at [email protected].
Website Resource Caching
This site utilizes caching in order to facilitate a faster response time and better user experience. Caching potentially stores a duplicate copy of every web page that is on display on this site. All cache files are temporary, and are never accessed by any third party, except as necessary to obtain technical support from the cache plugin vendor. Cache files expire on a schedule set by the site administrator, but may easily be purged by the admin before their natural expiration, if necessary. We may use QUIC.cloud services to process & cache your data temporarily.Please see https://quic.cloud/privacy-policy/ for more details.
