a whole bunch of nonsense no one really cares about, but you are welcome to read it if you’d like…

Many of the things below are handled by the “computer thingamajiggy” that makes things work, not by me, Jennifer, personally. However, in the interest of keeping all things above board, here is the info.


who am I?

The website address is: https://andstillshepersisted.com/~andsti5. You can learn about me at my About page.



All content and information on this site is provided for informational and entertainment purposes only.

what personal data is collected and why


(This is not something that “I,” Jennifer does, but rather the computer thingamajiggy that makes the site work well.) 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

If you contact me via a contact form, I will, um… reply. If you do not “opt in” to my mailing list, I will not contact you other than to reply to your initiated contact.

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.

opting in to my mailing list

your data

who we share your data with

No one.

how long we retain your data

More stuff handled by the computer thingamajiggy…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.

I may, at some point, partake in affiliate programs. While I would NEVER recommend you purchase something I don’t personally know about and believe in, I may occasionally recommend an item which, if you purchase it, may result in me receiving a small payment from the vendor. Thank you!
