The form on the Contact page sends a message from you to one of my email account and gmail (google) account, including your email address. You can use the same form to request that I delete your email address or other personal information submitted to me through this site. Otherwise, I may retain your information for up to 14 months for customer service purposes.
The “Subscribe to My Blog” form sends a message to my newsletter service, MailChimp. Through MailChimp, I can see the email addresses of my subscribers, including those who have unsubscribed, as well as data on whether MailChimp messages have been opened and what links may have been clicked.
