What Personal Data We Collect & 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 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.
If you fill-out a contact form, general information form, registration form, etc. on our site, your information will either be securily stored through a third party provider (ie. Mailchimp, Constant Contact, etc.) or it is not stored at all. We value your privacy. We do not and will not provide your information to another business or organization without your permission.
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 use Google Analytics to track page views, link clicks, visitor location, and more. All the information collected by Google Analytics is used for our own internal marketing and business purposes. We do not share this content with anyone outside of our company.
Who We Share Your Data With:
We do not share collected data whether from Google Analytics, an internal form, or emails with anyone outside of our organization.
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
We keep any collected contact information safe by using secure passwords and a reputable company such as Mailchimp or Constant Contact.
How we protect your data
Currently, we have a Secure Socket Lock (SSL) certificate attached to the website. This provides a layer of encryption on our website pages. We also have anti-spam & anti-virus protection installed. Our website is backed-up daily to provide an additional level of safety and security.
We partner with Square, a reputable credit card processing company.
