Privacy Policy

This stuff's so boring Curtis can hardly stand it.

Curtis is in the "secret" business, so your info is safe with us.

But here's all of the GDPR compliant lawyer lingo anyway. Blah, blah, blah...

Privacy Policy

That's right; a guy who travels around the globe doing comedy mind reading shows has to post a bunch of legalese that no one except lawyers actually cares about.  Why?  Because lawyers...well...

So here's our little ditty--not about Jack & Diane--but about how we comply with the internet police and do and don't use and abuse you and the information we have on you.  It's called the new GDPR law, a.k.a. "Gol-Darn-Protect your Rear" act, or something like that.  If you really want to know what that is, look it up.  It's "all over the internet" as they say; whoever they are.  

Who We Are

Well, his stage name is "Curtis The Mentalist," but his official business is known as Curtis Magic Entertainment ("Curtis Magic Entertainment"), mostly because he does other things in entertainment too and has other people help him do these things. So it would be weird to just call his business "Curtis The Mentalist" when there's other things and people.  But we digress... 

This dude's business Curtis Magic Entertainment operates http://CurtisTheMentalist.com and may operate other websites. It is Curtis Magic Entertainment's policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our websites.  We will respect it, feed it, give it a place to sleep if necessary.  But don't push it.

What Information We Collect, Why We Collect It, and Who We Share It With (which is pretty much no one)

Website Visitors (okay a bit more serious now)

Like most website operators, Curtis Magic Entertainment collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. Curtis Magic Entertainment's purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Curtis Magic Entertainment's visitors use its websites. From time to time, Curtis Magic Entertainment may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.

Curtis Magic Entertainment also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on CurtisTheMentalist.com blogs/sites. Curtis Magic Entertainment only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below, except that commenter IP addresses and email addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the blog/site where the comment was left.

Comments

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.

These cookies allow the ad server to recognize your computer each time they send you an online advertisement to compile information about you or others who use your computer.
