Personal information we collect and how we collect it
We may collect personal information from you in the following ways.
Automatically Collected Information:
We automatically collect certain information about you and the device you are using to access the website. When you use the website we will record your IP address, operating system type, browser type and referring website. The pages you viewed and the dates/times when you accessed the Website are also recorded. We may in addition collect information about actions you take when using the Website, such as links you clicked.
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. Closing your browser will discard this cookie.
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. By selecting “Remember Me”, your login will persist for two weeks. You will remove the login cookies by logging out of your account.
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:
We currently use Jetpack and WordPress.com stats to track website usage. This collects your IP address, WordPress.com user ID (if logged in), WordPress.com username (if logged in), user agent, visiting URL, referring URL, timestamp of event, browser language and country code. This site does not have access to any of this information via this feature. We can, for example, see the number of views that a specific post has, but we cannot see which specific users viewed that post. The information containing visitor IP addresses and WordPress.com usernames (if available) are retained by Automattic for 28 days and are used for the sole purpose of powering this feature.
Who we share your data with
Only when you authorise us to do so do we share your information with third parties . From time to time we may use third party service providers to service various elements of the website, for example
We may be required by law to share your personal data. An example would be if we were involved in legal proceedings or complying with legal obligations, a court order, or the instructions of a government authority.
How long we retain your data
We retain a user’s comments and associated metadata indefinately. This lets us recognise and approve any follow-up comments automatically. We can avoid any delays caused by holding the comments in a moderation queue by having this data.
We also store the personal information a user provides in their user profile when they register on the website . After a user registers they 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 the site, or have left comments, you can ask us to send you an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. In addition, you can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you, although we may have to keep some information for administrative, legal or security purposes. If you want to get in touch regarding this you can contact us by writing to firstname.lastname@example.org.
