What personal data we collect and why we collect it
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 leave a comment on our site you may opt-in to saving your name, email address and website in cookies. These are for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for one year.
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.
We use Google Analytics and other software to track anonymous user behavior and traffic on our website.
Who we share your data with
We don’t share your personal data with third parties. However, you should do a thorough review of your member profile page, and any groups that you have created or joined. There are options to make various sections of profiles and groups visible or hidden. These may include any content that you’ve published on our website such as your location, and work history.
We have functionality on the website to import public data when you log in through other social networking platforms. This may include your profile descriptions, and location data that we use to improve your experience on our website.
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 and login behavior may be checked through an automated spam detection service.
How we protect your data
We use a software firewall in addition to any hardware and software solutions provided by our web hosting company. Login details are encrypted in our database. We use secure methods for accessing our servers and databases when transferring files and data.
What data breach procedures we have in place
We’ll notify you by email as soon as we confirm that a breach has taken place.
What automated decision making and/or profiling we do with user data
We may tailor your user experience on our website to more closely match your interests. We also have search filters for finding friends to connect with, which filter for geographic locations and keywords.
