There are three main functions of the PGH blog: It’s the official channel through which I communicate events and changes in my business activities and promote my products. I also use it to share and reflect upon my experiences in running a small creative business. Finally, the PGH blog builds upon my interests, which means it is a venue for further discovery, exploration and brainstorming. Posts published by me reflect my personal views: I want to share things that intrigue and inspire me or things that I find worthy of further thought.
I attempt to fact-check everything before publication and I strive to provide accurate information, including links. However, as websites, products and businesses change, I cannot guarantee the accuracy of archived content. If you notice a mistake or an omission, please contact me.

I rely on a number of legal bases to collect, use and share your information. My service provider (at this time, WordPress) collects and stores some personally identifiable information (“your data”) as part of their routine business activities. They use data collected from traffic among other things to determine statistics.
Personally identifiable information includes but may not be limited to usernames and contact information (e-mail addresses, website URLs, IP addresses, etc.). I can view some of it through my website dashboard, but I do not collect or store your data for business uses. This means I will not give out or sell your data unless required to for specific situations.
I will share your data with these third parties only to the extent necessary to fulfill my obligations. You acknowledge that interacting with this site gives me your informed consent to do so.
If I sell or merge my business or a portion of my business or assets (including reorganization, dissolution or liquidation), I also reserve the right to disclose your data as part of that transaction, but only to the extent permitted by law.
The personally identifiable information I have access to through my website dashboard will be kept confidential and protected by reasonable safeguards. This means that I have safe browsing habits and I do not leave my account logged on when I am not present. I also protect and monitor my devices from unauthorized access, viruses and malware. My service provider is responsible for the security of their operations; contact them for details.
Note that I live and work in Massachusetts, United States. As a result, your data may fall under a jurisdiction with different data protection and government surveillance laws than mine. Also note that as as part of their service to me, my service provider may store and process your information through third-party hosting services in the US and other jurisdictions.
I do use statistics from my service provider to evaluate and analyze visits and other activity on this site. Only numerical data and not personally identifiable information will be used in such analyses.

If you wish to access, correct or delete personal information held by WordPress, contact them directly.
