Who we are
This is the website of JaneA Kelley, author, educator, and mental health advocate. Our website address is: https://janeakelley.com.
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.
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.

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.
Facebook and many other social media platforms have relationships with website owners that include the addition of a “tracking pixel,” a piece of code that lets the social platform follow you from the platform to any other websites you visit, primarily for the purposes of advertising.
I am very keen on protecting your privacy. This is why I refuse to insert a Facebook pixel or any other tracking pixel on this site. Since I don’t run ads, there’s really no need for me to use any type of tracking pixel, anyway.
This website uses Google Analytics to track the behavior of users on the site. Google Analytics collects first-party cookies, data related to the device/browser, IP address and on-site/app activities to measure and report statistics about user interactions on the websites and/or apps that use Google Analytics. Customers may customize cookies and the data collected with features like cookie settings, User-ID, Data Import, and Measurement Protocol.
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.
What rights you have over your data
If you have left comments on this site, 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
This site uses Akismet to reduce spam. Akismet collects only the personal data needed to carry out its core function of protecting you against comment spam. In the language of the GDPR, this is a “legitimate interest” use of that data. A notice below the comment form on any post on this site reads, “This site uses Akismet to reduce spam. Learn how your comment data is processed.”
In other words, visitor comments are checked through an automated spam detection service. That’s it.
