Email Privacy
I do not use personal email addresses for this site, only email addresses ending in @itsdaniel0.com or @id0.me. These are the only email addresses used within the sites of itsdaniel0.com. Any information sent within the email will only be viewed by me, all information is confidential and your email address will never be given to anyone else. All emails sent and received continue to stay in the inbox/outbox unless requested otherwise in which case the email will be deleted immediately.

Email Addresses Used for itsdaniel0.com
Update: To prevent spam, other email addresses have been removed.


Subscribing by Email (New Method)
The new email subscription is now powered by WordPress, instead of a third-party service. This is to hopefully make things easier and allow “instant” updates. More information about that can be found on this page.

Subscribing by Email (Old Method)
Should you choose to subscribe for email updates then your email address will be stored, however, this is just so I can control or cancel subscriptions if needed. The service itself is powered by Google’s Feedburner service. You can read more about their Privacy Policy here.

Chrome Extensions
When you download a Chrome Extension no personal information of yours is used at all. However, your IP Address is logged for updates, so I know how many people are using the extensions. Google Analytics is now used instead. The Chrome Extensions require the permissions they need, and no more. If you’re concern about a specific request for an extension then contact me and I shall explain why it needs that permission.

Android Application*
The Android Application contains no specific data about you at all. There is no log by me on downloading or updating, the Android Application itself is powered and hosted by Feed.Nu. I only control the content which is placed.

The app needs access to the internet, to download the blog posts, act as an account for the sync feature to successfully work and USB storage so it can be moved to USB.

Polls
Every now and then there is a poll to take part in. When you vote in a poll your IP address is logged to stop multiple voters on one poll, making the poll a lot fairer.

Facebook Privacy (Comment Box)*
Information when using the comment box is not shared, when you “Connect with Facebook” you are allowing the application to login using your name, email address and Facebook Profile as the information for the fields. The application requests for email access to alert you when a new comment is received in reply to yours if this feature is activated.

Twitter Privacy (Comment Box)*
Information when using the comment box is not shared, when you “Sign in with Twitter” you are allowing the application to login using your name, email address and Twitter Profile as the information for the fields. The application requests for email access to alert you when a new comment is received in reply to yours if this feature is activated.

Comment Box Privacy*
The commenting application uses OAuth 2.0 technology which means no personal information (passwords) are given to me or stored anywhere on this site. More information on OAuth can be found here. When leaving a comment your IP address is logged, this is to help prevent spam and gain a trusted commenter’s list.

Social Media Privacy
When using the Tweet, Like, or Share button you are just posting a link to your profile, no information is stored during the process of this. For more information on your privacy email [email protected]

*This service is no longer in use/development, but remains for reference.
