Privacy Policy

 As the owner and curator of Everbodyisart® - simply put:

- we don't sell your data

- we use any data you provide only for purposes of the Profile or

- to email any registered users about significant changes or to help them in some way or

- to try and eliminate spammers ( I honestly waste more time with this than most other administrative duties.)

- and to verify legal age.

Otherwise, we don't care about your personal data. You voluntarily registered to see more of the site or potentially communicate across the site with others - you can change or delete your profile at any time.

Maybe the computer stores your data in some forsaken place in the mysql data base we don't know about but if we find it we delete it anyway, if your not registered. Why waste resources?

If you bug me or are a jerk I'll delete you anyway under the life is too short provision.

While Every Body is welcome here, please, understand if you're a European citizen with the new privacy protection provisions - this is a US based server currently costing you not $1. Since you don't have to be here in the first place - before complaining to some authority - Do me the favor of asking to be deleted and I'll happily do that. Otherwise enjoy the site like everyone-else.

Again, we don't sell your data. No-one other than us or system administrators has access to it and most of that is hashed anyway. If you have a profile you can edit it or delete at anytime by logging in and doing what you want.

Ok. I've wasted enough time addressing this issue.

What follows is a generic boiler plate kind of Privacy Page which is now part of the WordPress installation.

Boiler Plate Starts...

Who we are

Our website address is:

What personal data we collect and why we collect it


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: After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.


If you upload images to the website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the website.

Contact forms


If you leave a comment on our site you may opt-in to saving your name, email address and website in cookies. These are for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for one year.

If you have an account and you log in to this site, we will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.

When you log in, we will also set up several cookies to save your login information and your screen display choices. Login cookies last for two days, and screen options cookies last for a year. If you select "Remember Me", your login will persist for two weeks. If you log out of your account, the login cookies will be removed.

If you edit or publish an article, an additional cookie will be saved in your browser. This cookie includes no personal data and simply indicates the post ID of the article you just edited. It expires after 1 day.

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.


Who we share your data with - nobody.

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.

For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.

What rights you have over your data

If you have an account on this site, or have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.

Where we send your data

Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.

Additional information

How we protect your data - we hope wordpress, mysql. s2member, various anti-spam methods and the administrators for our hosting account keep it safe.

What data breach procedures we have in place - hope and pray it doesn't happen, sincere apologies if it does, then fix what we can.

What third parties we receive data from - hmm, I guess FaceBook, Twitter, and whatever other social media accounts we might set-up. Content wise it may include the above - also wikipedia but in the future there will certainly be more websites.

What automated decision making and/or profiling we do with user data - spam filters certainly otherwise none. Well, I trash ANY suspected spam registration that gets through the spam filters but that's hardly automated.

Industry regulatory disclosure requirements - you got us here as I don't have a clue.
