The personal information I collect on my website is limited to the information you provide when you subscribe to the newsletter, or provide information on the contact form. Challies.com does not share this information with any outside party or service provider unless you expressly allow it, or I believe that it is necessary to comply with the law.
When you sign up for my newsletter, I collect your email address and only use this information to send you what you have requested. I do not sell mailing lists (email or physical). Sometimes I will send emails on behalf of a partner organization who I believe offers a product or service that may interest my subscribers. In those cases no data is ever shared with the partner organizations. If you want to change, update or remove email address on my list, you can do that by clicking “Unsubscribe” on the bottom of any received email.
