I’m a copywriter. I like to help people sharpen up their communications. I’ve no interest in selling on your data to make a profit. I also know how rotten it feels to learn your data has been breached. I’m angry too that the likes of Facebook use people’s data for their own monetary gain. So I don’t do that. I do everything I can to make sure any data I have of yours is both valued and protected.
WHO IS NATALIE SMITHSON
I am an independent copywriter working for clients on copywriting and marketing tasks. My website address is: https://nataliesmithson.com.
What personal data I collect and why
If you complete one of my contact forms, the information you provide in that form is delivered to my email inbox. It may then be stored in a contacts database or directory indefinitely, which is accessed by me or members of my team.
When visitors leave comments on the site I 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 leave a comment on my site you may opt-in to saving your name, email address and website in cookies. These are so you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for one year.
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.
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.
Information about how you use my site is shared with technology partners I use for things like social media, advertising, or website analytics. They may hold other data about your use of their own services and, thus, merge that information together.
Who I share your data with
You information may be shared with any third party I rely on to run my business. For example, email providers and payment processing platforms. Your data is only shared in connection with business activity.
It will be necessary to share information if I am ever required to prevent, investigate, or take action regarding any illegal activity I suspect or know of.
How long I retain your data
If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so I can recognise and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.
I keep any information you have voluntarily shared, like contact details, indefinitely.
What rights you have over your data
You can request that I erase any personal data I hold about you. This does not include any data I am obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.
Where I send your data
Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.
