The Website (carsonshook.com)

This website makes no absolute guarantees of privacy, but does its best to ensure that little to no data is collected about the user. The website makes use of several third parties to supply the services found within, most notably GitHub, on which the site is hosted, and GitHub may make use of user tracking (such as IP address or other info) not explicitly stated in this document. This website also makes use of Cloudflare, which may track and store IP address or other info. This website does not purposefully store cookies or session data about the user, except as required by third party services (such as Disqus for the comment system on this website's blog). No other part of the website makes use of the user's data, and thus no other data is collected, and none of the previously stated data is stored by the owner of this website. Any embedded resources or outgoing links (such as those in the footer or contained in blog posts) are not governed by this document and adhere to the privacy policies found on the websites embedded/linked to. This website does not make use of advertisements. In the unlikely event of a databreach, any users on which the website keeps data will be notified as soon as possible following the owner becoming aware of a breach.

The projects and resources available on this website do their best to avoid data collection, and in fact, the majority only ever live locally on your machine. The data they produce belongs to you and is not shared with third parties. That said, the following projects make no guarantees to privacy as they are designed to store data or work with third parties:

If you do not agree to the terms of any of the above applications/services/resources, do not install any of the software whose terms you disagree with, and cease using any software or resources whose terms you find disagreeable.

Direct Communication

By contacting the owner of this website over email or other services (including through submitting your email or other contact address using forms on this website), you may be consenting to receiving future contact from the owner or one of their partners (such as developers also working on projects related to your enquiry). If contact is made over email, IRC, or some other form of communication that allows the owner to save a record of your correspondence, then the information may be retained indefinitely (or until no longer necessary) unless a data deletion request is made. The owner makes no guarantees as to the length of retention of these kinds of data. If contact is made over services such as GitHub, Twitter, LinkedIn, etc., then the correspondence you make is within your control to delete, up to the extent that is allowed by said third party services. You may need to contact the respective services in order to remove record of correspondence. The owner reserves the right to retain any work done or completed products produced as a result of correspondence for portfolio purposes, given that a prior arrangement has not been made at the time the work was created and that the work does not contain personal information that would require its deletion in accordance with Your Data Rights as outlined in the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). In any case, it will be made clear when contacting the owner over one of the above methods that you must grant consent to receive future contact from them.
