What is personal information?

‘Personal information’ is information that directly identifies you, such as your name, address, email, or data that could be used on its own or in combination with other data to identify you.

‘Sensitive personal information’ is information about you that requires additional protection such as health information, criminal history, ethnicity, religious beliefs, or sexual preferences. I do not actively collect sensitive information about you and request that you do not unintentionally share it with me. I will take steps to appropriately protect any sensitive information I do receive. 

Staying anonymous

You can browse this website anonymously, although cookies may be used to collect information. 

If you identify yourself to me when you for example, post a comment or submit the Contact Form, at that point I will start collecting your personal information in accordance with this policy.


This website is not intended to be used by minors and I do not intentionally collect the personal information of persons under the age of 16. If you are the guardian of a minor and suspect they may have provided me with their personal information, please contact me and request to have the minor’s personal information destroyed.

Collecting personal information

At all times I try to only collect the information I need for the services I am providing including to answer your questions, to contact you about a collaboration or featured interview, or to send you newsletters or other promotional materials with your permission. You may withdraw your consent at any time and unsubscribe from these emails by clicking on the unsubscribe link or by contacting me through the Contact Form.

The information I collect about you includes your name and email, and if you wish to be in a featured interview, a list of additional information at the end of this page (questionnaire).

The main way I collect personal information about you is when you give it to me, for example:

  • when you comment on a blog 
  • when you submit a Contact Form
  • when you subscribe to Captain FI
  • when you send me your answers to the questionnaire 
  • interact with Captain FI on social media
  • when you ask to access information I hold about you

For compliance purposes, I may keep any of your personal information for a period of seven years, although I am not obliged to do so.

Social networking services and links to other websites

I may provide affiliate links or other links to third-party websites, or use social networking services such as Facebook, Instagram and Twitter to communicate with the public about my work. These websites have their own privacy policies and will handle your personal information for their own purposes. I strongly encourage you to familiarise yourself with the privacy policies of any third-party websites you use.

When you communicate with me through third-party websites, I may collect your personal information. 


The information I collect about you is used only to provide you with my services. When you make a purchase through an affiliate link on the website, your information may be shared with the product or service supplier. 

I may give access to personal information I hold about you to appropriate and competent advisors or authorities for the purpose of obtaining advice, having services completed for my business (for example, IT services) or where I am required to disclose information by law.

Security and overseas recipients

Captain FI is committed to ensuring that your information is secure. I take reasonable steps to protect all personal information within my direct control from misuse, interference, loss, unauthorised access, unlawful or accidental destruction, modification or disclosure. I use respected hosting services, firewall and other electronic security procedures and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure any  information collected. 

CROSS-BORDER TRANSFER: Using the Internet to collect and process personal information involves the transmission of data on an international basis. For example, I rely on third-party providers to store the information you have provided, and your data may cross international borders this way. Where possible, I nominate Australia as the storage country. However, for many third-party providers this is not possible, and your information will be sent or mirrored internationally. You acknowledge that different countries have different rules about personal information protection. I will do my best to ensure your data is protected to a similar standard as set out in this privacy policy by using reputable third-party providers with similar privacy protections. By using this website, you agree to Captain FI transferring your personal information across international borders this way.

DISCLAIMER: While I do my best to ensure the security of your data, no method of transmission over the Internet or method of electronic storage can be 100% secure. Despite my efforts, I cannot guarantee the security of your data. Provided I have acted in accordance with this policy, I will not be responsible for any loss you may suffer if your personal information has been unlawfully accessed.
