What personal data we collect and why we collect it
When visitors leave comments on the website, 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.
After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.
We collect information about visitors who comment on Sites that use our Akismet anti-spam service. The information we collect depends on how the User sets up Akismet for the Site, but typically includes the commenter’s IP address, user agent, referrer, and Site URL (along with other information directly provided by the commenter such as their name, username, email address, and the comment itself).
To help serve readers better, Music Production Nerds uses an “opt-in”, “contact form”, and “mailing list service” which collects data that users voluntarily provide to us.
Our opt-in form is used to register new users who would like to receive further updates on new content, as well as to alert readers on any relevant information regarding the website (Music Production Nerds).
Our contact form is used if you want to contact us directly, which helps to ensure your emails reach us, and not our spam inbox. This also helps us to filter out spam messages.
We use an email marketing service to save user contact information so we can contact you on any updates to the website. This information would be your name (if provided), and email address that you voluntarily provide by using the above mentioned opt-in and contact forms.
You can opt-out of these services by simply not submitting information into the forms, using our email address instead to contact us, or, if you are already on our mailing list, by “oversubscribing” to emails you’ve requested we send you.
