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.

Contact forms

When you fill out our contact form, the info is saved within our WordPress database, and an email notification is sent to the appropriate person within our organization. Our age of consent to connect with us is 18 years or older. If someone is under the age of 18, they must have their parents/guardian fill out the form. If you believe we might have any information from or about a child under 18, please contact us. You can read more about how Google uses your Personal Information here: https://www.google.com/intl/en/policies/privacy/. You can also opt-out of Google Analytics here: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout.

Who we share your data with

As mentioned, we do use Google products, as well as our email service provider, hosting company and 3rd party plugins. Subscriptions to newsletters are sent to MailChimp — you can read more about how MailChimp uses your personal information here: https://mailchimp.com/legal/privacy/.

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. This service is provided by Automattic.com: https://automattic.com/privacy/

Your contact information

Your personal info filled out on a contact form is only seen by our internal team either through the WordPress database or our email client (where we read the notification our system sends when you fill out our contact form). If you ever want that deleted, just contact us, we are glad to discuss it with you.

Source: Akismet

We collect information about visitors who comment on Sites that use our Akismet anti-spam service.

Contact us if you have concerns about this privacy policy, if we can clarify anything, and if you have any further questions or concerns.
