Privacy Policy

I am committed to protecting the privacy of my fans. Rest assured that all information you share with me is passed through a secure server and is treated with the utmost priority, will never be shared with third-party companies (except where I am using services to better your experience as explained later in this page.)

By visiting and browsing my website, you expressly consent to the collection and use of personal information according to the terms of this privacy policy.

Who I am

My website address is https://jaiprakash.me
Please ensure that the location that you can see in your address bar starts with this (https://jaiprakash.me) before submitting any data.

I am a free agent (offering my services as an actor, author, and professional adventurer) and make some of my products (such as books, media, and courses) available through this website.

My holding company is called Expressive Explorer and you may occasionally see information passed to https://expressiveexplorer.com

What personal data is collected and why

Your email address and, optionally, your name is received and stored through opt-ins to download free content. This information is used purely for purposes of providing ongoing valuable services to you.

When purchasing products, additional contact information (including contact numbers and billing address) is required for identification and billing. I may also ask your birth date to verify age, and your gender pronoun so I know how to address you.

I will not sell, transfer, assign or rent your personal information to any third party without your permission, unless required to do so by law. In this case, I will disclose Personally Identifiable Information upon receipt of a court order or subpoena. I reserve the right to report to law enforcement agencies any activities that I, in good faith, believe to be unlawful.

Comments

When you leave comments on the site, the data shown in the comments form is stored, and also your IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.

An anonymised 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.

I also use the Akismet anti-spam service which will also collect information about visitors who comment in order to curb spam. Typically, this includes the commenter’s IP address, user agent, referrer, and Site URL (along with other information directly provided by the commenter such as their name, username, email address, and the comment itself).

Media

If you upload images to the website, avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Other visitors who come across your uploaded image (eg. a profile image) can it and extract any location data still embedded.

Contact forms

All information that you submit in a contact form is collected and stored. This is to ensure that I have records of communication. Usually this will include your name, email, and a message. Please do no submit any information you do not want me to be privy to.

Cookies

If you leave a comment on my 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, a temporary cookie is set 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, several cookies are set up 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.

Embedded content from other websites

Posts may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites (eg. YouTube, Facebook, Twitter, etc.) behaves in the exact same way as if you are visiting 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. The data they collect are independent of my website and are subject to their respective privacy policies.

Analytics

I use the Google Analytics service as well as Automattic’s Jet Pack tracking service. Cookies are also used to track reference and anonymous analytical information. Analytics help me to track the performance of adverts, products, posts, and pages which allows me to consistently improve my website’s usability.

Who we share your data with

I may disclose customer data to those parties who help me deliver services to you, such as the companies that distribute my electronic publications, or provide secure payment gateways, and content providers that provide their own services via this site. Only the data required by the services to ensure efficient service delivery is provided. The services I use are well established in their respective industries and have their own strict privacy policies.

That said, should you leave my website by any external link, be aware that these websites are not affiliated with me, and may collect personally identifiable information through their own website and services. The data collected at this point is subject to the policies of that individual website.

How long is your data retained

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

For users that register on my website, I 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

You may, at any point in time, cancel your subscriptions to my newsletters and any courses by using the respective “Unsubscribe” link. If you have an account on my 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.
