Privacy Policy for jennannis.com

This is the privacy policy for Jennannis.com which went into effect in August 2017 and was updated in May 2018. Any information you provide on this site will be used in accordance with this policy.

Who we are

Our website address is: http://jennannis.com.  I’m Jenn Annis (in case you couldn’t tell from the address – I’m not exactly hiding my identity), and I’m the one who writes the posts here. Henceforth I’m using the royal ‘we’ in the privacy policy, but it’s pretty much just me here. Also, we feel it is important to note that we are using the royal we even though we are decidedly not royal. We did watch both of the Royal Weddings though. And quite enjoyed them thankyouverymuch.

If you need or want to contact me, you can do so at info@jennannis.com

Embedded content from other websites

Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.

These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracing your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.

How long we retain your data

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.

If you have read this far, congratulations!  Here’s a fun fact for your diligence (and keeping with the royal theme). The British Royal Family is not allowed to play Monopoly at home because it got too vicious.
