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.
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.
Information submitted in a contact form may be stored by this system and/or transmitted to one or more members of our staff via email as necessary to complete your request. This information may be stored indefinitely until space is needed.
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 have an account and you log in to this site, 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 we share your data with
We share your data only as necessary to fulfill requests made by you, such as with a payment processor to handle your order or a shipping company to ship it. Credit card numbers are not stored by this system but are transmitted encrypted to our payment processor(s).
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 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 we send your data
Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.
Your contact information
If you have questions about these policies, you may contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
How we protect your data
Your data is encrypted at rest in an offsite system, and access to this system is carefully controlled.
What data breach procedures we have in place
In the event of a verified data breach all system access would be reset, an audit of personnel with access would be conducted, and users potentially affected would be notified if contact information is available.
What third parties we receive data from
We may receive data from third parties in order to process orders and other requests. This site does not use tracking cookies generated by other sites.
What automated decision making and/or profiling we do with user data
Automated systems may be used in moderation of comments (automatic rejection of comments with objectionable content, for instance) and order processing (validation of payment information by third-party payment processors).
