PRIVACY POLICY

Thank you for visiting our web site. This privacy policy tells you how we use personal information collected at this site. Please read this privacy policy before using the site or submitting any personal information. By using the site, you are accepting the practices described in this privacy policy. These practices may be changed, but any changes will be posted and changes will only apply to activities and information on a going forward, not retroactive basis. You are encouraged to review the privacy policy whenever you visit the site to make sure that you understand how any personal information you provide will be used.

 

WHAT PERSONAL DATA WE COLLECT AND WHY WE COLLECT IT

By default WordPress does not collect any personal data about visitors, and only collects the data shown on the User Profile screen from registered users. This may include personal data, such as name, email address, personal account preferences; and technical data, such as information about cookies.

 

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 AND HOW WE USE THEM

Cookies are very small text files that are stored on your computer when you visit some websites. We use cookies to help identify your computer so we can tailor your user experience. You can disable any cookies already stored on your computer, but these may stop our website from functioning properly.

 

ANALYTICS

By default WordPress does not collect any analytics data.

Like millions of other website owners, we do use the free Google Analytics software. This software grabs data about our web visitors (you).

 

What does Google Analytics record?

  • What website you came from to get here.
  • How long you stay for.
  • What kind of computer you’re using.
  • And quite a bit more.

 

What do we do with that Google Analytics data?

The tracking information allows us to better understand our visitors and customers who come to the site and what content they’re reading. This allows us to make better decisions about design, copy and more.

No personally identifying data is included in this type of reporting. Here is a link to Google Analytics Terms of Service.

 

Want to opt out of tracking?

You can also opt out of Google’s advertising tracking cookie or use a browser plugin to opt out of all Google Analytics tracking software.

WHO WE SHARE YOUR DATA WITH

By default WordPress does not share any personal data with anyone.

Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.

 

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 indefinitely. 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.
