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.
Any personal information you share with us through our contact form is kept in strict confidence. We do not share emails with any third parties.
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.
Whom we share your data with
We do not share our email subscriber list with any third parties. WordPress does not share any personal data with anyone.
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.
How we protect your data
Our site is protected with an SSL certificate. Any time you use a form on our site to submit data, it is encrypted before transmission. Form data is then emailed to us and stored in a password protected database. We use monitoring software to check our website and the database to make sure they are secure from malware and intrusion attempts at all times.
What data breach provisions we have in place
In the event our website, database or your data should experience a breach, our software will notify us and our web developer immediately, and we will correct the issue. If at any time your data should be impacted by a potential breach, we will notify you within 72 hours of learning of the breach and provide you details on what information may be at risk and what you can do to protect yourself.
What third parties we receive data from
We receive a limited amount of information about visitors to our website through Google Analytics. This information is GDPR compliant and stored for a maximum of 26 months and then permanently deleted.
