Who we are

Hello. My name is Steve Miller. My website address is: https://www.lookatmypaintings.com. I am an independent fine artist, and the person behind the artwork you see here. I’m also the web designer and admin of this website. If you have any questions or concerns about the information you see here, you may contact me directly at 248-219-thirty, twenty eight.

What personal data we collect and why we collect it

I respect your right to privacy. If you visit my site and Look At My Paintings, I have no interest in collecting your personal data. However, Google Analytics does track my site’s traffic, and occasionally, I look at anonymous data that it collects, to see how many people visit my site over a given period of time, what type of device they look at my site with, and what general location they are viewing from. I do not participate in Google Adwords options which in turn collects more data. You don’t see advertisements on my site, and that will not be part of any business model in my future. Feel free to look at my paintings without worrying about your privacy.

If you subscribe to my blog, a user profile will be created for you based on the email you input. WordPress saves that information for me, so that you may be notified of new posts, and so you may comment on them.

If you purchase something from my Studio Shop, information such as your billing address, shipping address, email address, and telephone number will be collected as a customer profile. I do not handle any purchases personally. PayPal handles all purchases through my Studio Shop, using your PayPal account. PayPal’s privacy policy can be found here: https://www.paypal.com/us/webapps/mpp/ua/privacy-full. The data they supply to me after a transaction is the same as mentioned above.


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.


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.

Contact forms

I currently do not use a contact form, and therefore do not collect your data for marketing purposes through a contact form.


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 have an account and you log in to this site, 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.

If you edit or publish an article, an additional cookie will be saved in your browser. This cookie includes no personal data and simply indicates the post ID of the article you just edited. It expires after 1 day.

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.


I use Google Analytics to view anonymous data about visitors to my site.

Who we share your data with

I do not share or sell data with anyone.

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.

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 may be checked through an automated spam detection service.

Additional information

I use MailChimp for WordPress in order to send subscribers occasional future email newsletters.

How we protect your data

I don’t share or sell email addresses with anyone. I don’t seek to collect your data. I have no interest in exploiting your privacy.

What data breach procedures we have in place

If a data breach occurs, the only data that could be collected is a previous customer’s name and email, physical address and their phone number. I do not collect any financial data, because all transactions are conducted through PayPal. If a data breach occurs, I will notify any customer affected with information obtained about the breach.

What third parties we receive data from

I occasionally get analytics data from Google that provides generic information about the number of visits to my site over a given time, what kind of computer they use, and what part of the world they are viewing from.

What automated decision making and/or profiling we do with user data
