Who we are
Robert Zucker, Consulting for the Journey (“Robert Zucker”) operates robertzucker.com. It is Robert Zucker’s policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our websites.
What personal data we collect and why we collect it
Like most website operators, Robert Zucker collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. Robert Zucker’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how the website’s visitors use it. From time to time, we may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
We also collect potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on robertzucker.com blogs/site. We only disclose logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below, except that commenter IP addresses and email addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the blog/site where the comment was left.
When visitors leave comments on the site 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.
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.
We use contact forms as a way of communicating with site visitors and potential clients. When a user submits a contact form certain identifying data is collected including name, phone number, email, location, and message content. You may request a transcript of your form submission or request that submitted information be deleted from the database.
