Disclosure

I may earn something when you click a link or purchase a product mentioned on the site.

I will disclose pertinent conflicts of interest.

Disclaimer

I trained as a physician. Having a heart attack or stroke? Involved in a major trauma? Been using meth for a year and decided that, at 3AM on a Saturday night, you really ought to have that ingrown toenail checked out? I’m your guy.

I freely express my opinions, but in the end I’m just some dude on the internet. My financial education has come from books, blogs and the school of hard knocks.

Who we are

My website address is: https://crispydoc.com

I help physicians and other high-income professionals who feel burnt out from demanding careers develop mastery of personal finance as a tool to regain control of their time.

I’m not a stalker, and I have no evil master plan, but in our age of technology, data gets collected. Cookies get installed – not the kind that make you happy and chubby.

When you comment, sign up for newsletters or promotions, or visit other pages from this one, you may be providing personal data. If you change your mind and ask to unsubscribe, I’ll honor your request (or delegate the task) as quickly as I can.

Since I am learning to use analytics from a company that may rhyme with frugal, data collected may include but not be limited to: what websites referred you to this site, the pages you visit on leaving this site, your internet service provider, etc. It’s collected in a manner that avoid personal identifiers. I’ll use it to see what appeals to readers and learn from what doesn’t, so I can produce content readers find useful and fun.

What personal data we collect and why we collect it

Log Files

 A log file can contain information including the ISP (internet service provider) you use, your IP (internet protocol) address, your internet browser, what pages you visited, and the amount of time you spent on each page.

Comments

This gets a bit technical, so bear with me. Collected data includes:

  • Comments
  • IP address and browser user agent string to detect spam
  • An anonymized string created from your email address may be provided to the Gravatar service (Gravatar privacy policy is here.). Your Gravatar profile picture may be visible to the public in the context of your approved comments.

Cookies

If you comment on this site you have the option of saving your name, email address and website in cookies. This spares you from having to re-enter these details on subsequent comments.

Embedded content from other websites

Sometimes posts on this site embed content such as videos or images from external websites. Embedded content from other sites behaves as if you visited the external site. The external sites can:

  • collect your data
  • use cookies
  • embed additional third-party tracking
  • monitor how you interact with embedded content
  • trace your interactions with embedded content if you have an account with the external site and are logged into that external site

This site is not the other sites’ nanny, and as such, cannot accept responsibility for those sites’ unsavory privacy policies or other shady practices. This site’s policy does not apply when you click out, so think twice before you click over to something sketchy. If there’s a way to track something, there’s a reasonable chance Big Brother is tracking it (he’s sneaky like that).

Whom we share your data with

Nobody. I won’t sell or distribute your information to third parties.

How long we retain your data

Comments and metadata are retained indefinitely.

Where we send your data

How we protect your data

I don’t use your data for anything other than what Word Press does automatically. I only send you emails when you opt in and I have something worth sharing. I stop when you unsubscribe.

I keep Word Press security up to date to protect your data. Should a data breach occur you will be notified in accordance with federal and state regulations.

None.

Industry regulatory disclosure requirements

Nothing to disclose.

Ads

I use third party advertisers on this site (such as the shareaholic buttons) that may use cookies. This allows them to collect information including the ISP (internet service provider) you use, your IP (internet protocol) address, and your internet browser. They may collect information to target ads to you based on your geographic location or the sites you have visited recently.
