Privacy Policy

This page takes effect as of January 1, 2023. For questions, comments, concerns, updates, shifts, or historical edits, please send an email to office@netherworldpost.com. We will attempt to answer within 72 hours. This time frame is based on the fact we are a very small company handling a tremendous amount of projects.

In short:

We have no interest in selling, leasing, or renting any of your data to anyone, at any time, for any price, for any reason. We use common programs to handle our business. We limit the data shared with them, as possible, and use collected data to make this company better.

We use Google Analytics, WordPress.com including JetPack, Askimet (to protect against spam comments,) Shopify as a store, MailChimp as an email service provider, and are on Facebook, Pinterest, Tumblr, and YouTube.

The purpose of collecting data is to ensure the site is running and to optimize content — if we see “hey a lot of people are reading about mermaids,” we will make more mermaid content and conversely, “hey no one is reading about cursed swamps,” we will make less cursed swamp content.

We have never had a government agency demand data, but if pressed, we would legally comply to avoid jail time and/or fines and/or being shut down.

If you email office@netherworldpost.com and request your data to be deleted, we will comply as quickly and thoroughly as possible (it will probably take 72 hours to handle this request).
