Privacy and Cookie Policy

I’m a huge fan of privacy, which is why I respect yours.

This privacy policy applies solely to information collected by this website’s forms and cookies. If you communicate with me (David Hahn) via email, I will retain your information solely for the purposes of communication. 

By using the information on this site, you accept and agree to the above privacy policy and terms of use.

Regarding e-mails, newsletter sign-ups, and contact forms:

By subscribing to our email newsletter or submitting a form, you are granting me (David Hahn) permission to email you. You may unsubscribe via the link found at the bottom of every email at any time, or by replying with “unsubscribe” in the e-mail header.

When you submit a request for more information, I’ll only reply to you via email to provide you with a response to your request. I will not share your name, contact information or email ID with any third party without your written permission.

How I use data collected by cookies

To measure the effectiveness of my website, https://www.davidhahnillustrator.com, I collect and analyze data pertaining to visitor activities at this site. I collect anonymous visitor information, such as:

  • IP addresses

  • browser types (the usual: Internet Explorer, Edge, Chrome or Firefox)

  • pages visited and the order in which they were visited

  • return visits

  • referring pages and Web sites

  • time spent on the site. 

Log files and a JavaScript code are used by these sites to collect this anonymous visitor information. The JavaScript code contacts my web traffic suppliers’ servers, receives a cookie in response, and loads an image to the page. The cookie, JavaScript code or the server log files do not collect or store any personal information such as name, age, phone number or address from visitors to this website.

Google Analytics

I use Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google LLC to help measure traffic patterns to, from, and within its public websites. This analytics measurement tool uses “session” and “persistent” cookies (persistent cookies are stored on your computer and expire two years after your last visit to a website) to collect standard internet log information and to track visitor behavior information in an anonymous form.

The information generated by the cookies about your use of the website (including your truncated IP address) will be transmitted to Google. No personally identifying information is recorded or provided to Google.

This anonymous information is then used to evaluate visitors’ use of the website and to compile statistical reports on website activity for https://www.davidhahnillustrator.com The aggregate data and statistical reports are only used to help me make my site more useful to visitors, and are only made available to web managers and other designated staff who require this information to perform their duties.

For further information, please review how Google uses data when you use Google’s partners’ sites or apps, as well as Google Analytics and its privacy policy.  All available Google Analytics advertising features have been enabled.  I abide fully by Google’s usage conditions.  I further draw your attention that you can control your ad settings.

(Note, I currently don’t serve ads from my site.)

If you wish, you may opt out of being tracked by Google Analytics by disabling or refusing the cookies, by disabling JavaScript within your browser or by using the Google Analytics Opt-Out Browser Add-On. Disabling Google Analytics or JavaScript will still permit you to access comparable information or services from my website.

However, if you change the settings on your browser so that cookies will be denied or so that you will be warned before a cookie is saved on your computer, moving around on the websites may be a much slower process. To disable cookies or JavaScript, please refer to your vendor’s browser instructions.

From time to time, I may use Google Ads advertising to display my brand’s promotional ads on other websites. Google uses cookies to display my ads based on my visitors’ past visits to https://www.davidhahnillustrator.com. You may opt out of Google’s advertising by visiting Google’s Ad Settings or the Network Advertising Initiative opt-out page.

Please note that opting out places a cookie on your device in the browser you used to opt-out. If you delete your cookies, you will need to opt-out again to replace the opt-out cookie. (What a pain in the ass!)

I encourage my visitors to be aware when they leave my site and to read the privacy statements of any other site that collects personally identifiable information.

Should I be required by statute or Court ordered to disclose your information, I will comply with our legal obligations.
