This website is based in the USA and serves visitors from all over the world. As such, we strive to adhere to privacy law regardless of its national origins; this includes Europe’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). That said, we believe that SizeDevelopment.com poses no threat to the privacy of our visitors. We MAY collect a minimal amount personally identifying data only when a visitor submits a comment or signs-up to our mailing list. That personally identifying data includes a valid email address, a name, handle, or alias, and an IP address. No other personal data is collected. We don’t consider an IP address to a personally identifying piece of info. Internet providers can connect an IP to a person but we cannot. Personal names can be faked as is often the case and makes no difference to us. All data is stored in a database in plain, unencrypted text. If that database was to be hacked into, then whatever info is stored within would be up for grabs.
With regards to our mailing list sign-ups, a third-party service is used and no data is stored by us or our servers. It’s the third-party service, such as MailChimp, that stores all names and email addresses so that we can send out mass email messages containing important info regarding male enhancement, enlargement, etc.
How We Use That Data
When a visitor submits a comment, we MAY use his or her name to refer to them directly if a response is warranted. The email address is used only if there is a response to their comment in which case an email is automatically sent to notify the person of that response. Nothing more.
When a visitor signs-up to our mailing list, the name and email address is used to send periodic email messages to that person and address them directly. Nothing more.
Tracking and Cookies
The term “tracking” in our case DOES NOT mean that we track your browsing habits outside of SizeDevelopment.com. Tracking in that manner is best left to large corporate data thieves such as Facebook and the like. Tracking in our case means that a browser cookie is created by the Google code on our website which is then used by Google’s Analytics service; the creation of this cookie is beyond our control if we are to continue to use that service. If the data collected for analytical purposes is used by Google in another way, then we are unaware of it.
Google Analytics collects an IP address, a time and date, the referring website, the browser type, visited pages on SizeDevelopment.com, search words or phrases, and the operating system or device type of the visitor. This data is then used to create charts and graphs within the Google Analytics service so that we can see traffic patterns, trends, and other things that allow us to be competitive. This data is stored by Google and is beyond or control. Even if we were to stop using the service, we cannot guarantee that this data would be deleted from their servers.
Our server automatically creates a log of all visitors to our website – human or not. This functionality is built into the web hosting service and is beyond our control. The data in the server log consists of the following: an IP address, the request URL, a referring website, and the browser type. This is standard information used in all web communications and has been this way from the start of the Internet. We may analyze our server logs for the purpose of identifying hostile actors and to locate problems with our service or website. None of this data is sold to or used by third-parties (as far as we know).
