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 here: https://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.

Cookies

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 90 days.

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.

These websites 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.

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.

UPDATE 8-12-2020

Also the following conditions may apply depending on the type of information you have submitted and your location, browser, age and date of this privacy policy update.

We believe in your right to know what information is collected during your visit to our site and how the information is used and safeguarded.

The information gathered falls into two categories:

  • Information voluntarily supplied by visitors to our site through optional registration.
  • Tracking information gathered as visitors navigate through our site.

Information Gathered By Voluntary Submission

To make use of certain features on our site (such as Place an Ad, Saved Ads or Alerts, etc.) visitors need to register and to provide certain information as part of the registration or participation process. If you place a paid ad, and from time to time to use certain other features, we also request credit card information which we maintain in encrypted form on secure servers. From time to time, we also may ask, for example, for information such as your address, zip code, interest in sports, personal finance, the performing arts, and the like. Although providing additional information is entirely voluntary, the information you supply will help us to offer you more personalized features, to tailor our site to your interests and make it more useful to you. The more you tell us about yourself, the more value we can offer you.

Information Automatically Gathered About All Visitors

We collect both aggregate and user-specific information on what pages consumers access or visit. This information is used to generate reports that help assess the value of interest in the site. We use the information we collect to improve the content of our web page. We can build a better site if we know which pages our users are visiting and how often.

Our web servers automatically collect limited information about your computer’s connection to the Internet, including your IP address but not the e-mail address, when you visit our site. Your IP address does not identify you personally. We use this information to deliver our web pages to you upon request, to tailor our site to the interests of our users, and to measure traffic within our site.

To help make our site more responsive to the needs of our visitors, we may utilize a standard feature of browser software called a “cookie”. The cookie doesn’t actually identify the visitor, just the computer that a visitor uses to access our site. A cookie can’t read data off your hard drive. Our advertisers or content partners may also assign their own cookies to your browser, a process that we cannot control. We use cookies to help us tailor our site to your needs, and to deliver a better, more personalized service.

Log Information

When registered users sign in, our servers automatically record information that their browser sends whenever they visit a website. These server logs may include information such as the web request, Internet Protocol address, browser type, browser language, the date and time of the request and one or more cookies that may uniquely identify their browser.

User Communications

When advertisers and users send email or other communications, we may retain those communications in order to process the inquiries, respond to their requests and improve our services.

Information Shared With Other Organizations

We present information to our advertisers to help them understand our audience and confirm the value of advertising on our websites.

This information is usually in the form of aggregated statistics on traffic to various pages within our site. From time to time, we may share information on visitors to our site with organizations marketing products and services that we believe may be of interest to you. This list can include your e-mail address and other specific information (such as your address, phone number, personal interests, etc.) you may have provided us while online.

Special Attention To Children

Children should always get permission from their parents before sending any information about themselves (such as their names, email addresses, and phone numbers) over the Internet, to us or to anyone else. We do not specifically collect information about children. We encourage parents to review and share safety tips with their children participating in the online experience.

A final note: maybe affiliated with other online companies, some of which feature our branding and some may not. This policy statement does not apply to those companies’ web sites; please refer to these affiliated sites to obtain information on their privacy policies. If you cannot find the privacy policy of any of these sites via a link from the site’s homepage, you should contact the site directly for more information.

The Web is an evolving medium. If we need to change our privacy policy at some point in the future, we’ll post the changes before they take effect. Of course, our use of information gathered while the current policy is in effect will always be consistent with the current policy, even if we change that policy later.
