Data Collection & Management
All of the data collected from you is provided by you, and does not extend beyond your e-mail address and user details (i.e. your name and country at the time of subscription) when you register for a subscription, grant a donation or otherwise send me your details directly. In the case of a donation, your card details are not stored and are immediately deleted from the website after donating. I may also receive information about you when you interact indirectly with the site through social media platforms like Twitter, depending on your privacy settings with the social network. You should always make sure to check and adjust your settings on such third-party websites before linking them to this site (or any site, for that matter).

None of your information will be shared with third parties, whether it is through social media or within the hosting platform.
In order to ensure GDPR compliancy, any personal details you provide will be stored on the website and will be added to your user profile. Only the owner (me) will be able to see this, and you can see, edit, or delete your data at any time.
