Privacy Policy

Hi, my name is Danny Sandrik, owner of Vinyl Record Memories at all-about-vinylrecords.com (the "website" or "site).

One of the things I hold dear is my privacy. I expect the same is true for you. The privacy of your Personal Information is your right. So I want to assure you that the privacy of the information you share with me is as important to me as it is to you.

I want to make my policies on managing your data clear and understandable, so I've tried to write this privacy policy in plain English. Each section of this policy is labelled to make it easy for you to navigate

In this Privacy Policy, I'll tell you about the types of personal information received and collected when you use my website, as well as some of the steps taken to safeguard information. This will help you make an informed decision about sharing personal information with me.

I make every effort to maintain the highest standards of decency, fairness and integrity in all my site operations. Likewise, I am dedicated to protecting my customers and online visitors privacy on my website. In addition...

  • I use a private, paid for email service, that does not place ads in my emails. No one likes it when they sign up for a newsletter and end up receiving spam emails from countless 3rd parties. When you share your email or other personal information with me, I guard it as if it is my own.  The Pobox.com privacy police is available here: Pobox.com privacy.
  • This site is secure using (HTTPS) protocol. Any data you provide is encrypted for your protection.
  • This site complies with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) that took effect on May 25, 2018. You will see the notice at the top of every page on this site leading to this privacy page you are currently reading.
  • I have used the same webhost (Sitesell.com) for the past 15 years. Their honesty and sincere interest in the security and privacy of their customer websites should be the guideline for all webhosts.  Their address is listed in the Data Storage section below.
