Privacy Policy

Last updated: May 24, 2018

Stephen Beale ("us", "we", or "our") operates http://www.steampunk-explorer.com (the "Site"). This page informs you of our policies regarding the collection, use and disclosure of personal information we receive from users of the Site.

We use your personal information only for providing and improving the Site. By using the Site, you agree to the collection and use of information in accordance with this policy.

Below you will find details about what happens when you visit our website. We want you to know that we take your privacy seriously.

In general, the data we collect is submitted automatically by your browser when you visit the site. This is also the case with most other websites.

In addition, you have the option to subscribe to an email newsletter. If you choose to do so, we will ask for your email address, and you have the option to provide your first and last name. You will always have the option to unsubscribe. We are not engaged in e-commerce, so we do not ask for financial information. Registration is not required to use the site.

Log Data

Like many site operators, we collect information that your browser sends whenever you visit our Site ("Log Data").

This Log Data may include information such as your computer's Internet Protocol ("IP") address, browser type, browser version, the pages of the Site that you visit, the time and date of your visit, the time spent on those pages and other statistics. We use summaries of this data for internal purposes. For example, it allows us to identify which articles are drawing the most traffic and how many users are viewing the site on mobile devices. We may publicize aggregated statistical information, such as monthly totals of unique website visitors or rankings of the most popular stories. We may also share aggregated summaries privately with outside parties.

In addition, we may use third party services such as Google Analytics that collect, monitor and analyze this data. However, at present, we do not use Google Analytics.


Cookies are files with small amount of data, which may include an anonymous unique identifier. Cookies are sent to your browser from a web site and stored on your computer's hard drive.

Like many sites, we use "cookies" to collect information. You can instruct your browser to refuse all cookies or to indicate when a cookie is being sent. We do not use so-called "tracking cookies," which track your behavior on other websites.

Information Collection And Use

While using our Site, we may ask you to provide us with certain personally identifiable information that can be used to contact or identify you. At present, we ask for this information when you opt-in to receive our newsletter or other communications. When you do so, we ask for your email address, and you have the option to provide your first and last name. Our service provider, MailChimp, also records the IP address of the device used when you signed up, and the latitude and longitude of that IP address. You always have the option to unsubscribe. If you do so, your name, email address and other personal information will be removed from the system.

If you have subscribed to our newsletter, you may request to see your personally identifiable data by sending a message through the contact form on this website. A link to the contact form is at the bottom of this page. Your personally identifiable data will include the following information: Your email address, your first and last name (if you provided that information), the date and time you opted in and confirmed the opt in, the IP address of the computer or mobile device used to opt in and confirm the opt in, the approximate location of the IP address (city or region), and the time zone of the IP address.

We use MailChimp, a third-party service provider, to maintain our subscriber list and prepare and send emails to subscribers. We encourage our users to read MailChimp's Privacy Policy by following this link: https://mailchimp.com/legal/privacy.


If you have opted in to join our subscriber list, we may use your personal information to contact you with newsletters and other information. You always have the option to unsubscribe so you will no longer receive these communications.


The security of your personal information is important to us, but remember that no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure. While we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.
