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 at 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

If you use our Contact or Support forms to get in touch with us, we collect just the information we feel is vital to provide quality service. This information is limited to what you share with us and is retained indefinitely to allow us to follow up effectively. You may request that we remove your information if desired.

Cookies

Cookies are small files that make it easier for you to remember what you did on a particular website. 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 visit our login page, 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.

We do not control these websites, and they 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

Like any good business, we use analytics to evaluate how our website is working and areas that may need more attention. Analytics information is based on your IP address, but we do not care about individual users. Our goal is to see how large numbers of users are interacting with the website, as this the only way to gauge what is and isn’t working.

Who we share your data with

We share composite data of site visits with various analytical tools. In addition, technical vendors and tech support administrators of this website have potential access to the data it contains. If you sign up for email broadcasts, your name and email address are sent to our list management service. We do not sell, rent or otherwise share your information with third parties.

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 leave us feedback or use the Support form, any contact information you fill out will be retained indefinitely. This enables us to follow up effectively. You may request removal of this information if desired. If you purchase something through our site, we may retain your contact information and related data for tax reporting purposes.

Additional information

How we protect your data

We are committed to protecting our clients’ privacy. With that goal in mind, we take steps to provide above-average levels of security on this website. We only collect information that we feel is reasonable and minimally required to provide you with high quality service. We minimize the number of people who have access to the site data, providing such access under stringent conditions.

What data breach procedures we have in place

In the event of a security breach that could have compromised personal information, we will notify everyone affected by email within 48 hours. In addition, we will reset all passwords on the site and take additional steps to further enhance security.
