WHAT PERSONAL DATA WE COLLECT AND WHY WE COLLECT IT
When you access our website, we learn certain information about you during your visit.
Information You Provide. The website provides various places for users to provide information. We collect information as users fill out forms, communicate with us via contact forms, respond to surveys, use our search feature, provide comments or other feedback, and provide information when ordering a product or service.
We use the information you provide to us to deliver the requested product and/or service, to improve our services, and to provide you with offers, promotions, and information.
Information We Collect Through Automated Data Collection Technology. As you navigate our website, we may use automated data collection technologies including Google Analytics to collect certain information about your equipment, browsing actions, and patterns. This generally includes information about your location, traffic pattern through our website, and any communications between your computer and our Website. Among other things, we will collect data about the type of computer you use, your Internet connection, your IP address, your operating system, and your browser type.
The information collected automatically is used for statistical data and will not include personal information. We use this data to improve our website and our service offerings. To the extent that you voluntarily provide personal information to us, our systems will associate the automatically collected information with your personal information.
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.
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.
If you opt-in on one of our contact forms, we will keep this information for customer service purposes, but we do not use the information submitted through them for marketing purposes, unless authorized by you to do so.
If you have an account and you log in to this site, 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 this site 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.
WHO WE SHARE YOUR DATA WITH
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 and third parties may have access to your data as noted throughout this policy.
We do not sell, rent, lease or otherwise transfer your information collected whether automatically or through your voluntary action.
We use reasonable physical, electronic, and administrative safeguards to protect personal data from loss, misuse and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, and destruction, while taking into account the personal nature of your data and risks involved in processing that information.
We may disclose your personal information to our service providers for the purpose of providing our services to you. We may disclose your personal information to a third party, including a lawyer or collection agency as needed to enforce our terms of service or another agreement between you and us. We may provide your information to any successor in interest in the event of a merger, divestiture, restructuring, reorganization, dissolution, or other sale or transfer of some or all of the our asserts and/or business.
We may disclose information when legally compelled to do so or when we, in good faith, believe that the law requires it for the protection of our legal rights or when compelled by a court or other governmental entity.
