Privacy Policy

Last Updated: March 18th, 2022

Family List is a one-family attempt to celebrate play. There is no advertising on the site, so most of the usual privacy policy stuff is not here. But here is a privacy policy to tell you what information my website does receive from you and what happens to it.


Information provided


Newsletter: If you sign up to receive the Family List Newsletter, you provide your name and email address, which are used solely for the delivery of the newsletter to your inbox. I would never share them with any “third parties.” You can always unsubscribe by clicking the UNSUBSCRIBE link in any newsletter edition.


Donations: If you choose to donate to Family List— thank you! — you provide your name, donation amount, and payment card information. The secure financial service provider that handles these transactions (called Paypal) will receive your payment card information, which will only be used to process your donation. 


Communications: If you contact me via email, either by writing to me directly or by replying to the automated email newsletter, I will receive your email address and any other information you choose to provide.


Information automatically collected 

Usage Information: Family List lives on the publishing platform WordPress, including a statistical analytics feature to help publishers understand how their readers use their websites. This means that anonymized information of the pages Family List readers visit and the times of those visits are represented in these statistics. WordPress may add other features to their analytics at any time, which will be available to me as a publisher, though I don’t look at these statistics.


What Family List does with that information 

I use your information solely to communicate with you if you have opted in to receive the newsletter, facilitate donations, and better understand how you use the site to improve it. I don’t share your information with any “third parties,” though it does live — securely — within the external services that deliver the email newsletter (MailChimp) and process donations (PayPal).



Data Transfers: I’m told I need to state that because Family List is based in the United States if you visit the website from another country, your data may be transferred to the United States and other countries that may not have the same data protection laws as the country in which you initially provided information. 


Data Security: We will do everything to make Family List and your information as secure as possible. However, this is the Internet — no security measures can be 100% secure for reasons far beyond any one person’s intent and control. I, too, along with my entire website and any data related to it, can be on the receiving end of some cyberattack at any given moment.
