Who we share your data with
We do not use or share your personal information to send you spam or unrelated offers.
On certain occasions, we may need to share your personal information in accordance with legal obligations.
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. If you notice that any information we have on file is incorrect, you have the right to ask for it to be corrected as soon as possible. You also have the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority at any time.
How we protect your data
We use reasonable technical and administrative measures to protect your personal information against theft, loss, and unauthorized access, including the use of an SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) security certificate and only working with reputable third party companies. Although we always do our best, no system is 100% secure, and therefore, we cannot guarantee the security of your personal information and cannot assume liability for improper access to it.
What data breach procedures we have in place
If a data breach ever occurs, we will notify you via email as soon as possible. You will be informed of what information may have been compromised, how we corrected the breach, and how to protect yourself moving forward.
What third parties we receive data from
If you make a purchase through any of the programs we are affiliates for, we will receive an email notification of the sale, which may include personal information about you, such as your name or email address. We keep this information private and will not share it with anyone.
