What personal data we collect and why we collect it

Comments

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.

Media

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.

Contact forms

Any information you submit via our contact forms will be securely stored to allow us to respond to your requests. There is no set period of time we keep data for from contact forms but it is periodically deleted once no longer needed to process your requests. If you opt into our mailing list then we retain your contact details for as long as you stay subscribed. You can unsubscribe at any time and your data would then be deleted during the next maintenance session.

Cookies

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.

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.

Analytics

We use Google Analytics to monitor the visitors behaviour on this site. This is anonymous and does not reveal any personal information about you to us or google. The use of this data allows us to always ensure the site is able to provide you with the best user experience.

Who we share your data with

We do not pass on your information to any third parties. Google will have the data as mentioned above as part of the analytics data we use. We use Mailchimp for our mailing list so they will have your contact details stored on their systems within our account but they have no direct access to this information and they are unable to directly see this information and cannot contact you.

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.

Data is cleared periodically (usually between 1 month to 3 months).

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 submit your contact details to us then we retain these details until either you request there removal or we delete them during a maintenance session because they are no longer required.

How we protect your data

Any data we store is secured with strong passwords or biometrics (e.g. fingerprints, facial scanning) on encrypted servers, drives or computers. No one outside of the company is allowed access to these protected systems.

What data breach procedures we have in place

We have 24/7 monitoring of all our systems to detect any intrusion attempts. If the unlikely event of a successful intrusion ever occurred then we would notify the relevant law enforcement agencies and we would notify anyone whose data may have been compromised so that they can change passwords to prevent any further intrusions.

What third parties we receive data from

We receive analytical data from Google and Mailchimp.
