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 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 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 do not share your data with any third party. We store your details purely so we can communicate with you directly and provide services.
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.
For users who contact us through the website, we retain that information indefinitely in our client database.
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 any questions about the data we hold about you, wish to request a copy of that data, or simply wish us to delete your data from our database, please email us at: firstname.lastname@example.org
What data breach procedures we have in place
Should our customer data be breached, we will:
- Immediately suspend the online service and e-mail to ensure no further breach can take place.
- The website and company database will be moved to an alternative hosting service before being activated again.
- Inform all affected users of the breach.
What third parties we receive data from
We do receive customer data from other agencies when we are engaged to work on behalf of those agencies to provide other services. We treat all such data in exactly the same way as users who contact us directly, and all the provisions stated in this policy document apply equally.
