How do we collect your data?
Email Newsletter and Mailchimp
Email addresses are provided directly from specific users who signup for the email newsletter, giving consent to be sent emails from the Story Influx Press (S!P) newsletter.
If subscribed, you can unsubscribe at any time by clicking the link in the footer of our emails. We use Mailchimp as our marketing platform for the email newsletter. When subscribing, users acknowledge that their information will be transferred to Mailchimp for processing. Learn more about Mailchimp’s privacy practices here.
We DO NOT track IP addresses of visitors with Google Analytics. They are anonymized before sending. This website is generated with [Hugo](), and uses a theme that utilizes and has enabled
respectDoNotTrack privacy options for GoogleAnalytics. For more information on how Hugo makes this easy for us, and other developers, please see Hugo and GDPR: GoogleAnalytics.
Visitor Analytics is a simple website analytics service which measures the traffic and visitors’ general details of the customers’ websites. Collecting these statistics, a website can make their visitors’ experience better (e.g. which pages they visit and when, where they are approximately located, where does a user land first or if they are coming from a specific referral).
Basically, as a website owner using Visitor Analytics, we are using cookies to collect data about visitors’ device type and screen size, approximate location, browser, OS, page visits, bounce rate, conversions and popular content on the website. All this data is pseudonymized and Visitor Analytics will never use the collected data to identify individual users or to match it with additional information on an individual user. Each visitor has control over the cookies placement.
We DO NOT track IP addresses of visitors with Visitor Analytics. This has been made easy by Visitor Analytics, per their help documentation: How do I anonymize visitors’ IPs?
