The Gardner Home is committed to protecting your privacy online. I never sell, nor redistribute your information to anyone. Any information collected is for the sole purpose of my blog. Some information on how data is sometimes collected from you includes:

  • On blog posts: your name, email and URL are collected on comments. The purpose of collecting this information is to display to other viewers to identify you as the person who left the comment. This allows for open dialogue and conversation between commenters. Your name and URL (if submitted) will be displayed, but your email will not. The email is saved in case we need to contact you directly about the comment you left. You can choose to comment on the blog as a guest and only your name will be required. If you'd like your comment to be deleted, please contact us to request this action.
  • Your email address is collected if you wish to sign up on my newsletter. This information is used to send you marketing emails a few times a year. If you'd like to unsubscribe and have all data erased, you can do so by clicking the "unsubscribe" link in any email, or by contacting us directly.
  • When you fill out a "contact" form on my Contact page, your email, and name are collected when you submit the form to get in touch with me. This data is collected so that I can email you to answer any questions you have, and to initiate a conversation about any of the services that you're interested in.

Under GDPR, you have the right to request access to, correct, delete and limit processing of personal data. Please contact me to make such requests. You are entitled to receive any personal data that is kept so that it can be used by another processor. You also have the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority.
