Important: The site owner does not have access to any of this information via this feature.

Data Collection – WordPress Subscriptions
Data Used: To initiate and process subscriptions, the following information is used: subscriber’s email address and the ID of the post or comment (depending on the specific subscription being processed). In the event of a new subscription being initiated, we also collect some basic server data, including all of the subscribing user’s HTTP request headers, the IP address from which the subscribing user is viewing the page, and the URI which was given in order to access the page (REQUEST_URI and DOCUMENT_URI). This server data used for the exclusive purpose of monitoring and preventing abuse and spam.

Data Collection – Gumroad and Patreon
Both Gumroad and Patreon require you to create accounts with them in order to do business. This will include name, email, and delivery address so that I may fulfill book orders on Gumroad and send rewards on Patreon.
