Collecting and Using Your Personal Data
You may be asked to provide certain personal information when you use the Website. This includes your name, address, email address, and other personal information. We may use this information to contact you with promotional messages, newsletters, and other correspondence, as well as to respond to any questions you may have.
We also may collect non-personally identifiable information, such as IP address, browser type, language preference, the time and date of your visit, and the pages that you view. We may use this information to monitor website performance, gather demographic information, track user behavior, and to develop new products and services.
We will never sell or share your personal information or financial information with any third party, except as necessary for us to complete a task or to provide a service requested by you.
Your data may be transferred to and stored by our web hosting providers and/or other third-party services that we use to operate our Website. We take reasonable measures to protect all information collected through our Website. However, no method of electronic storage or transmission is 100% secure. As a result, while we strive to protect your personal information and financial information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.
You have the right to access, modify, delete and export the data we have collected and stored about you. If you would like to exercise any of these rights, please contact us at [[email protected]].
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.
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.
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.
Who do we share your data with?
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.
What rights do 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.
Where your data is sent?
We don’t send your data to anyone. But, visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service to safeguard our product and our audiences.
