What personal data we collect and why we collect it

In order to bring you the best experience, Ensign Shaffer needs to collect some information from you, the visitor. Depending on your activity on the website & our blog, different information might be collected.

We are not in the business of collecting, storing, processing or reselling your data. That’s simply not what we do. 
If we do have your data from our site that’s because you either willingly contacted us via email or our inquiry form or we collected non-identifiable data such as those stored in Google Analytics. In either case, we feel your data is secure and nothing we might have collected can be used to harm you. If you don’t feel the same way email us.


If you leave a comment on our site you may opt-in to saving your name, email address and website in cookies. These are for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for one year.


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. Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.

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.

Contact Form & Email

If you contact us via the contact form or sending us a direct email, we will collect consent-based form entry data which is safely stored in our support software. This information is collected so we can answer your questions more precisely. You may request erasure of this information at any time – email us.

Embedded content from other websites

Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.

These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracking your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.

The following information may be collected:

Email Address
IP address
Any other personal information that you may write in the body of the message
The contact form field requires you to check the box in order to consent to have this website store your submitted information. We will not store any of the provided information; we will only keep the email in our inbox so we can track users’ reactions & requests over time. If you don’t want us to keep your email, please let us know that after the conversation, and we will immediately delete the entire thread.

All of our employees are subject to strict confidentiality and non-disclosure obligations.
