Who I Am
I am Ray Clark, author of Forbidden Bitcoin. My website is: forbiddenbitcoin.com
What and Why
If you set up an account you may be asked for a first name, last name and valid email address. Your first and last name are used to personalize your experience on my website. Pseudonyms are fully acceptable. Your email address is used as a unique identifier for your account, and if necessary, to contact you. If you purchase anything from me, a record of your purchases will be retained for accounting reasons. Technical data such as what browser you use, what website referred you, and so on, may be collected to help improve my website (see Google Analytics, below).
If you have an account and you log in to this site, a temporary cookie will be set to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.
When you log in, several cookies will be set to save your login information and your screen display choices. Login cookies last for two days, and screen options cookies last for a year. If you select “Remember Me”, your login will persist for two weeks. If you log out of your account, the login cookies will be removed.
For users that register on my website, the information they provide is stored in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their own information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information. Your data will be retained for as long as your account is active, or until you log in and delete it, or until my website is taken offline, or until the heat death of the universe — whichever comes first.
I never share your information except as outlined in the third-party services listed on this page.
Below this point, I will attempt to disclose all third-party services used on my website which may collect, use, or in any way touch your personal information. I may add or remove such services at any time. I may forget to include one or more in this list, but I will try to keep it updated. If you do not accept this scenario, you are forbidden from using this website.
I may use Google Analytics on forbiddenbitcoin.com.
What does Google Analytics record?
- Which websites visitors are coming from.
- How long the visits last.
- What kind of computer visitors are using.
- Browsers being used.
- Aggregate number of visitors over time.
- And other anonymous (non-personally-identifying) information.
What do I do with the data?
I mostly use this data to better understand the people coming to my site and how they are getting here. This helps me know where it’s best to focus my efforts to share Forbidden Bitcoin.
All of my activity falls within the bounds of the Google Analytics Terms of Service. To learn how Google uses the data, they provide a page called “How Google uses data when you use our partners’ sites or apps”.
