Who we are
What personal data we collect and why we collect it
In the process of serving requests that you make for pages, images, audio files, and other content from our website, our web servers automatically recognize your IP address and other key information about your web browser and/or other device or software you use to make requests. Your IP address does not reveal anything personal about you to us. We use this information to examine our traffic in aggregate, and to investigate misuse of KickSomeADHD.com, its users, or to cooperate with law enforcement. We do not collect and evaluate this information for specific individuals. Our Web servers do not automatically record e-mail addresses of the visitors.
If you choose to subscribe to emails from us via our website, including automated emails notifying you about new episodes of our podcast, we collect the data requested on the subscription form, as well as the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.
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.
If you fill out a contact form, we collect the data requested in the contact form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.
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.
If you visit our login page, we will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.
When you log in, we will also set up several cookies to save your login information and your screen display choices. Login cookies last for two days, and screen options cookies last for a year. If you select “Remember Me”, your login will persist for two weeks. If you log out of your account, the login cookies will be removed.

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.
We use a service operated by Google in order to measure the performance of our website. This service, known as Google Analytics, helps us understand factors such as:
- how frequently various types of content we provide are being accessed
- the popularity and/or effectiveness of our content
- various characteristics, anonymously and in the aggregate, about visitors to our website, including demographic information.
Who we share your data with
We do not sell or otherwise share your data with any third-parties for marketing purposes.
Third-Party Service Providers:
We do use third-party services providers to fulfill requests you make from us, including delivering audio files, email subscriptions, and responses to comments and contact forms you have submitted via the website.
How long we retain your data
If you leave a comment, fill out a contact form, or subscribe to emails, the data collected and its metadata are retained indefinitely. In the case of comments, this is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue. In the case of contact forms and email subscriptions, this is so that we can respond to you, provide the subscription(s) you have requested (if any), and honor your preferences about email communications, both now and in the future.
For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.
What rights you have over your data
If you have an account on this site, or 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 and contact form submissions may be checked through an automated spam detection service.
Visitor email subscription requests will be sent to Mailchimp for processing and servicing.
