What personal data do we collect, and why do 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 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.
This site contains contact forms. Data submitted via these forms may be stored locally and transmitted to 3rd parties. Do not include any personal information because we can not guarantee the security of its storage.
If you leave a comment on our site, you may opt-in to save 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 use 3rd parties to analyze usage data for analytics purposes. This data may include your IP address, approximate location, and any other data you or your browser provides.
Who do we share your data with?
Data may be transferred to 3rd parties, including but not limited to Facebook, Google, Mailchimp, ConvertKit, Cloudflare, Sentry, Vercel, and Automatic.
This site creates and stores an activity log that captures the IP address, username, email address and tracks user activity (like when a user makes a comment). Information on remote logs cannot be cleared for security purposes.
How long do 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 do 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 do we send your data?
Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service. Analytics data may be sent to a 3rd party analytics service such as Google and/or Facebook. Your email may be shared with 3rd party email services, including Mailchimp and ConvertKit. Your traffic may be routed through Cloudflare and Vercel.
How we protect your data
We have multiple security and encryption methods in place to help protect your data. We utilize Cloudflare to help protect our servers and your data through common web security techniques. Your data and security is ultimately dependent on what your share and what you do. When you're using the internet, look for sites like ours that use HTTPS and have a valid encryption certificate. You can also use browser settings and VPNs to help protect your internet privacy.
What data breach procedures do we have in place?
In the event of a breach, we will attempt to notify those affected and work to secure the data from future breaches.
What third parties do we receive data from?
We may receive data from 3rd parties, including but not limited to Facebook, Google, Mailchimp, ConvertKit, Ubersuggest, and Automatic.
Any questions concerning this policy or how your data is handled can be sent to Mackenly Jones through our contact form. Thank you for your cooperation.
