Privacy Policy

Like most other sites, your information is collected and dissected. Let me count the ways.

Cookies

While I enjoy a lovely chocolate chip cookie, this site only uses session cookies to remember that you're logged in from page to page.

Collection of Information

We collect and store your name, email address, and password. Your password is stored in an encrypted format. The site forces login and registration through SSL to protect your information over HTTP.

Your name and email address associated with your PayPal transaction along with the transaction ID is also stored in the SMACSS.com database. No other personally identifiable information, including no credit card or PayPal password information, is transmitted to or stored on SMACSS.com.

Distribution of Information

We may share information with governmental agencies, with PayPal, or other companies assisting us in fraud prevention or investigation. We may do so when: (1) permitted or required by law; or, (2) trying to protect against or prevent actual or potential fraud or unauthorized transactions; or, (3) investigating fraud which has already taken place. The information is not provided to these companies for marketing purposes.

Third Party Services

I use Google Analytics and Gaug.es to aggregate site statistics including IP, browser information, and page referrer information.

I use Disqus for site comments, RegOnline for workshop registrations, and TypeKit for custom font embedding. Similar to book or site membership purchases, workshop registrations use PayPal for payment and therefore RegOnline does not store any credit card information or PayPal password information.

All of these services can and do create permanent cookies that are stored on your machine to identify you on repeat visits. Each service has their own privacy policy for how they store and manage your information.

Mailing List

If you signed up for the mailing list, either through the mailing list registration form or by agreeing to during the purchase of the ebook or site membership, you will receive emails on a periodical basis. (On average, about once every two weeks.) The mailing list is stored and managed from MailChimp. I will not sell or distribute your email address to anybody else. You may unsubscribe from the mailing list at any time.

If you have not signed up for the mailing list and chose not to subscribe upon purchase of the e-book or site membership, your information will not be sent to or stored on MailChimp. However, you may receive an email from me in exceptional cases.

Commitment to Data Security

Your personally identifiable information stored on SMACSS.com is kept secure and only I, Jonathan Snook, have access to this information.
