What personal data we collect, and why
Automatically collected information: We use Google Analytics to automatically collect certain information about you when you access the Website, such as your IP address, device operating system, browser type, and pages you viewed. We may also collect information about actions you take when using the Website, such as links clicked. Our Website respects Do Not Track browser requests. Your information has been anonymized and is only viewed as aggregate data.
Caching: This Website utilizes caching in order to facilitate a faster response time and better user experience. Caching potentially stores a duplicate copy of every web page that is on display on this site. All cache files are temporary, and are never accessed by any third party, except as necessary to obtain technical support from the cache plugin vendor. Cache files expire on a schedule set by the site administrator, but may easily be purged by the admin before their natural expiration, if necessary. We may use QUIC.cloud services to process & cache your data temporarily. Please see https://quic.cloud/privacy-policy/ for more details.
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. Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.
Cookies: We may log information using cookies, which are small data files stored on your browser. We may use both session cookies, which expire when you close your browser, and persistent cookies, which stay on your browser until deleted, to provide you with a more personalized experience on our Website. You may prevent the Website from setting cookies, or delete any already-present cookies, by using the settings in your web browser. However, if you deactivate the setting of cookies in your Internet browser, not all functions of the Website may be usable.
Payments: We accept payments through PayPal. When processing payments, some of your data will be passed to PayPal, including information required to process or support the payment, such as the purchase total and billing information.
Voluntarily submitted information: We may collect personal information from you such as your name or email address when you leave a comment or subscribing to a newsletter. Our Website does not use contact forms. We do not collect any personal information when you use any of the social sharing buttons on our Website.
Who we share your data with
If you request a password reset, your IP address will be included in the reset email.
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, 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.
Protecting your data
We protect our Website and your data using Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) encryption. According to GDPR regulations, you have the right to access and control of your data and you can ask us to change or delete your data at any time. We respect requests from EU residents as well as non-EU residents. Simply email us to have your information amended or removed. We do not retain secondary copies of any of your data without your consent. We will never resell your data to third parties without your consent.
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.
