VegSource.com Privacy Policy

VegSource Interactive (Vegsource) is a website and newsletter service currently made available free of charge. We believe in the Golden Rule of treating visitors and subscribers as we would like to be treated, which means we don't spy on you. We believe we are in compliance with Europe's new privacy law, the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).
Vegsource does access the Internet Protocol (IP) addresses of visitors to the website but no user login is required to access the website.
Visitors are welcomed to comment on blog posts and are asked for their first name (which can be an alias) and email address in order to do so but this data is not accessed or repurposed by the publisher.
Newsletter Email
Subscribers to the free newsletter are likewise asked for a first name and email address, in order for the newsletters to be correctly delivered by email.
The percentage of email- and page-opens are also tracked with great interest by us, the publisher, to better understand the interests of our readers so that I may give you what you want.
Advertising
Vegsource does sometimes run ads but does not directly collect data in order to advertise to you. Third-party advertiser networks used by Vegsource employ industry standard data collection that should be in compliance with the GDPR.
Information Disclosure
Vegsource has never and will never sell your information.
Data Storage
Vegsource uses third-party vendors and hosting partners for hardware, software, networking, storage, and related technology needed to run the website.
Third-Party Embeds
The video content that you see displayed on Vegsource is generally hosted by YouTube or sometimes Vimeo. These files send data to the hosted site just as if you were visiting that site directly (for example, when you load a post page from Vegsource with a YouTube video embedded in it, YouTube receives data about your activity). We do not control what data third parties collect or what they will do with it. Videos are covered by the privacy policy of the third-party service.
Tracking & Cookies
We do not use browser cookies and similar technologies to recognize you when you return to our site and Vegsource doesn't track you across the Internet - it can't.
Some third-party services that we use, such as Google Analytics may place their own cookies in your browser. This Privacy Policy covers use of cookies by Vegsource only and not the use of cookies by third parties.
Data Security
We use encryption (HTTPS) to protect data transmitted to and from our site. However, no data transmission over the Internet is 100% secure, so we can't guarantee security. You browse the Internet and Vegsource at your own risk, and you're responsible for taking reasonable measures to secure your device.
Changes to this Policy
Vegsource may periodically update this Policy. We'll notify you about significant changes to it.

Potential Consequences of Processing
By posting public comments on Vegsource, users may make certain personal data about themselves public and accessible to others. This may in some cases constitute special category protected data which is considered manifestly made public by the user.
