Parsimonious may collect, store and use the following kinds of personal data:-
Since 2008 I do not accept financial contributions, but even prior to that no personal payment information has ever been collected and stored by me or anyone associated with the site. All past transaction details were kept only by Pay Pal
** Please note that current version of Parsimonious (5.5 instituted in July 2012) does not use any cookies
Whilst the networks who buy space on this site to display adverts do use some limited data collection for the purposes of appropriately targetting their adverts I am fully committed to only working with only reputable advert providers who operate in an responsible way. I will drop like a thermonuclear, radioactive potato any network that abuses the privacy of site visitors, regardless of how much they might be contributing to Parsimonious' finances!
Please note that there will always be the possibility of an unauthorized breach of the site's web servers, it is sadly the nature of the internet. Under such circumstances I have no control over how stored data may be used and am not responsible for the consequences, however, I have taken every reasonable precaution to prevent this. Parsimonious no longer keeps email addresses in its database for newsletter subscribers, and the old guest book system was removed including all messages in July 2011. Email addresses for currently open support enquiries are not kept on the site's web servers and are deleted once the enquiry has been marked as resolved.
