Privacy Policy is a personal blog with a short and simple privacy policy. Here are the bullet points:

  • Any personal information we collect about our visitors is only used for comments. We encourage our visitors to share their thoughts and we give them the option to provide their name. All personal information is submitted voluntarily and is not required to be real.
  • We do not share any personal information we collect with any third party.
  • For your convenience, we use cookies to keep track of your browsing session on this blog. When you log in, a cookie is stored in your web browser, so that we can remember who you are the next time you visit. For extra privacy, users are welcome to browse this blog with cookies turned off or in a private browsing session.

Information we collect

The information that we collect about our users that is potentially personally identifiable may include their name, email address, a website/blog URL, and an avatar image. We may also log IP addresses and User Agent strings for statistical analysis, but we make no attempt to link this information with particular individuals.

Password Policy

Any user passwords submitted through this blog are run through the bcrypt hashing algorithm before being stored in our database. This makes it practically impossible for anyone to get access to actual passwords, even in the unlikely event of our database being compromised.

This privacy policy was last updated on December 1, 2016 and is subject to change without notice.

About Me

Lauren Slanker

I am an 8th grade science teacher and team leader at Freedom Middle School in Berwyn, IL. I love reading, traveling, and being curious! I live in Chicago with my husband Tikhon and our pets - Louie and Miles. This blog is my place to learn and reflect on my teaching so that I can continue to grow into the best teacher that I can possibly be!
