Privacy Policy

Who we are

showtheplanet inc. (“us”, “we”, or “our”) operates geologyforinvestors.com and may operate other websites. It is the company’s policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our websites.

What personal data we collect and why we collect it


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.


If you upload images to the website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the website.

Registration and Subscription Forms

We use Pico to manage our user registration and subscription services and Stripe for our payment integration.


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.

If you visit our login page, we will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.

When you log in, we will also set up several cookies to save your login information and your screen display choices. Login cookies last for two days, and screen options cookies last for a year. If you select “Remember Me”, your login will persist for two weeks. If you log out of your account, the login cookies will be removed.

If you edit or publish an article, an additional cookie will be saved in your browser. This cookie includes no personal data and simply indicates the post ID of the article you just edited. It expires after 1 day.

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.


We use Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google, Inc. Google Analytics makes use of “cookies” to gather data on how this website is used and compiles reports that help us analyze and improve our website. You can opt-out of Google Analytics by downloading and installing the Google Analytics Opt-out Browser Addon.

We use Pico for our user registration and subscription services. Your activity on the site may be shared with them in connection with these services.

Who we share your data with

We may transfer your data to third-party service providers who may process and store your data. Specifically we use MailChimp to manage our email responses and send emails to you. We also use Google, Inc. to manage our domain email services. We use Pico for our user registration and subscription services and Stripe for our payment integration.

Providers are expected to use reasonable protection measures and to refrain from further disclosing your Personal Information without your consent, except as provided in this Privacy Policy.

How long we retain your data

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.

For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.

We do not directly retain registration or subscription data: These are held by the named third party service providers.

What rights you have over your data

If you have an account on this site, or have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.

While we do not directly retain registration or subscription data, we will attempt to facilitate removal or retrieval of your personal data from any of our associated third party service providers upon request.

How we protect your data

In order to protect your data, we use regular Malware Scanning on our server(s). In addition, your personal information is contained behind secured networks and is only accessible by a limited number of persons who have special access rights to such systems, and are required to keep the information confidential. All Personal Information you supply is transmitted via Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology.

Business Transfers

If us, or substantially all of our assets, were acquired, or in the unlikely event that we go out of business or enter bankruptcy, user information would be one of the assets that is transferred or acquired by a third party. You acknowledge that such transfers may occur, and that any acquirer may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.
