Privacy Policy

Who we are

Our website address is: https://www.nethervoice.com. Nethervoice contains some Amazon affiliate links. This means if you click on an affiliate link through to a retailer and purchase something, I may receive a very small amount or percentage of your purchase. This does not add any additional cost to you, the consumer. Adding affiliate links into a post occurs after a review/opinion on the product has already been formed. This website does not accept paid advertising, and products featured were personally purchased by the owner.

What personal data we collect and why we collect it

This website gathers email addresses from those who opt to subscribe to the Nethervoice blog, and those who leave a comment on that blog. It also retains contact information provided by those using the contact form. This is to offer visitors a way to voluntarily subscribe to blog updates via email, to allow them to leave a comment on blog posts, and to reach out to and contact Nethervoice.

Comments

When visitors leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.

An anonymized string created from your email address (also called a hash) may be provided to the Gravatar service to see if you are using it. The Gravatar service privacy policy is available here: https://automattic.com/privacy/. After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.
