By choosing to “post comment” in response to a post, you are acknowledging that your personal data can be stored and used in line with this Privacy Policy. You are also confirming that either you are at least 18 years of age or that you have parental consent for opting-in, or are of legal age in your country of origin. You will not be able to post a comment without selecting this checkbox.

We do not sell, trade, or otherwise transfer to outside parties your information unless we provide users with advance notice. This does not include website hosting partners and other parties who assist us in operating our website, conducting our business, or serving our users, so long as those parties agree to keep this information confidential. At your request, or when the website is closed, we will delete / destroy your personal data in all formats.

We may use the information we collect in the following ways:
• To respond to comments on blog posts
• To administer a contest, promotion, survey or other site feature or update.
• To follow up after initial contact
• To maintain site security
• To improve the services we provide and overall website traffic information

Data collected by third parties is managed by their respective privacy policies (as listed above). 

THIRD-PARTY LINKS (text links or graphic/badge links)
Occasionally, we may include links to other websites via a link or badge which the visitor clicks then leaves our site. These third-party sites have separate and independent privacy policies. We therefore have no responsibility or liability for the content and activities of these linked sites. You should exercise caution and look at the privacy statement applicable to the website in question. We seek to protect the integrity of our site and welcome any feedback about these sites and will promptly remove them should they pose a risk to our visitors.

You have the right to access your personal data held by the site owner, to know how we use it, and to update or correct your personal data. This policy should help make that clear, but specific questions are always welcome. You also have the right to request that we delete all personal data.

All inquiries and requests relating to your personal data can be directed to AKM Miles at akmmiles@yahoo.com. We will make good faith efforts to resolve requests and respond to such messages in a timely manner.

We reserve the right to revise this Privacy Policy by updating it and posting the update on this same Privacy Policy Page with a notation regarding the change.
