What personal data we collect and why we collect it
When visitors leave comments on one of our sites 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.
Our contact forms collect your name, email address and IP address. This data is sent to our email account, but is otherwise not stored on the web server.
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. Click here to learn more about cookies.
If you have an account and you log in to any of our sites, 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 our sites 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.
Embedded content on our sites comes from the following services: YouTube, Soundcloud and Vimeo. Please refer to their respective privacy policies for further details. Going forward (as of May 2018), the YouTube videos on our sites utilize the ‘no cookie’ embed code version.
Facebook share buttons have been removed from all our sites, except www.alminediary.com. Please consult Facebook and your Facebook account settings for further insights into how Facebook uses your data.
Who we share your data with
The following sites use a payment processor for your credit or debit card purchases.
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.
Order information is kept indefinitely and will be deleted if you haven’t interacted with us for more than 5 years.
What rights you have over your data
If you have an account on any of our sites, 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. (Please specify exactly which website or websites.) 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
All visitor comments, on all our sites, are checked through an automated spam detection service.
