Who we are

Our website address is: https://alisonlamantia.com. We provide communication consulting and writing services.

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: https://automattic.com/privacy/. After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.

Contact forms

Our contact form is by Contact Form 7. Contact Form 7 doesn’t store information submitted through the forms. It’s only sent to Alison and her team for the purpose of responding to your request and providing service to you. It’s then stored in our email host, Gsuite.

Who we share your data with

Your information provided through the contact form may be provided to service providers who are working on your project with us.

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.

Cookies and Analytics

Our website may use ‘cookies’ to help improve your experience. Most major websites use cookies. They’re a small text file that’s placed on your computer to help the website remember your preferences. You can disable the use of cookies by changing settings in your website browser. This could affect your experience with some sites.

We use Google Analytics to understand the traffic on our site. Google Analytics provides information about user behaviour but does not identify individual users. The Google Analytics service transmits website traffic data to Google servers in the United States.

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.

Your contact information and comments received through the contact form may be stored in our contacts in Gsuite for as long as we’re working with you as a client.

If you’d like to be deleted from our contacts, please just let us know.

Additional information

Plugin: litespeed cache

This site utilizes caching in order to facilitate a faster response time and better user experience. Caching potentially stores a duplicate copy of every web page that is on display on this site. All cache files are temporary, and are never accessed by any third party, except as necessary to obtain technical support from the cache plugin vendor. Cache files expire on a schedule set by the site administrator, but may easily be purged by the admin before their natural expiration, if necessary.

Plugin: Smush

Note: Smush does not interact with end users on your website. The only input option Smush has is to a newsletter subscription for site admins only. If you would like to notify your users of this in your privacy policy, you can use the information below.

Smush sends images to the WPMU DEV servers to optimize them for web use. This includes the transfer of EXIF data. The EXIF data will either be stripped or returned as it is. It is not stored on the WPMU DEV servers.

Smush uses a third-party email service (Drip) to send informational emails to the site administrator. The administrator’s email address is sent to Drip and a cookie is set by the service. Only administrator information is collected by Drip.
