What personal data we collect and why we collect it

To provide access to our products and free materials, we collect your first and last name and email address.

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.

NOTE:  Our PlanButVerify Personal Financial Planner software product collects additional information separate from the operation of this website.  A statement of how this information is protected is stated at the bottom of this page.


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.

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 tracking your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.

Who we share your data with

We don’t share the data you enter except as specified on this page.

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, 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.

Your contact information

We only use of your contact information for purposes of enhancing your use of our products and for providing support.

How we protect your data

The PlanButVerify Personal Financial Planner software product collects a comprehensive array of your personal and financial information.  This information is protected in two ways:

  • The software and its associated database is located solely on your computer or device.  The software makes NO use of the internet or external storage (excepting your own elective use of email or external storage, such as Cloud).
  • None of the data that is entered into PlanButVerify is of a specific identifying nature (such as Social Security Number, bank or investment account number, etc.).

Our website uses the secure https protocol, and uses encryption in all communication.
