What personal data we collect and why we collect it

Comments

When visitors leave comments on my website I collect the data shown in the comment form through a service called Disqus. You agree to Disqus’ policies when submitting a comment. I can only moderate the comments through my site and am able to delete at my own discretion. Disqus have a separate and independent privacy policy. I therefore have no responsibility or liability for the content and activities of Disqus. Nonetheless, I seek to protect the integrity of our site and welcome any feedback about these sites.

Contact forms

If you submit a contact form you are opting-in for saving your name, website and email address on this site for an indefinite time period. This information is only used for customer service purposes, and I do not use the information submitted for marketing purposes.

Cookies

Cookies are small files that a site or its service provider transfers to your computer’s hard drive through your Web browser (if you allow) that enables the site’s or service provider’s systems to recognise your browser and capture and remember certain information. For instance, I use cookies to collect information on your browsing behaviour.

Cookies are placed on the device you are viewing the site on and remember when that device accesses the site. These cookies do not collect personal information but monitor your behaviour whilst browsing. If you leave a comment on my website you may opt-in to saving your name, email address and website in cookies. This is so it’ll save you time if you comment again however this is optional. These cookies will last one year.

These cookies and the information they collect help improve this site for yourself and future visitors by monitoring traffic of users and success of particular content. You can choose to have your computer warn you each time a cookie is being sent, or you can choose to turn off all cookies. You do this through your browser settings.

Embedded content from other websites

Occasionally, at my discretion, I may include links to other articles, images or videos on my website.  These websites may collect data, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking and monitor your interaction with that embedded content. These third-party sites have separate and independent privacy policies. I therefore have no responsibility or liability for the content and activities of these linked sites. Nonetheless, I seek to protect the integrity of our site and welcome any feedback about these sites.

Analytics

This site uses Google Analytics to collect information such as details of traffic and visitor behaviour patterns. I also occasionally check my stats on WordPress. You can opt out by using the Google Analytics Opt Out Browser add on.

Who we share your data with

I do not sell, trade, or otherwise transfer to outside parties your Personally Identifiable Information unless required to do so by law. If I were to host a giveaway with another brand this data, your name and email, will be passed along if you were to win. If you do not want this data to be passed over do not enter giveaways with brands on this site. This will be stated clearly so you are aware.

How long we retain your data

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

What rights you have over your data

If you 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.

Additional information

How we protect your data

Your personal information is contained behind secured networks and is only accessible by a limited number of people who have special access rights to such systems, and are required to keep the information confidential.  I implement a variety of security measures when a user enters or submits their information to maintain the safety of your personal information.

Website back up
