Who we share your data with
Google Analytics is a web analytics service offered by Google that tracks and reports website traffic. Google uses the data collected to track and monitor the use of our Service. This data is shared with other Google services. Google may use the collected data to contextualize and personalize the ads of its own advertising network.
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.
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.
Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.
Under the Privacy and Electronic Communications Regulations, we may send you communications from us if you made a purchase or asked for information from us about our goods or services or you agreed to receive communications and in each case you have not opted out of receiving such communications since. Under these regulations, if you are a limited company, we may send you emails without your consent. However, you can still opt out of receiving emails from us at any time.
You can ask us to stop sending you messages at any time by following the opt-out links on any message sent to you OR by emailing us at email@example.com at any time.
If you opt out of receiving communications this opt-out does not apply to personal data provided as a result of other purchases or transactions.
Our Website has industry standard security measures in place to protect the loss, misuse and alteration of the information under our control. While no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure, we will take all reasonable steps to insure the safety of your personal information.
What data breach procedures we have in place
We protect customer data with the following site features:
We are entirely using SSL/HTTPS throughout our Site. This encrypts our user communications with the servers so personal identifiable information is never captured by third parties without authorization.
In case of a data breach, System administrators will immediately go through affected users and will attempt to reset passwords if needed after informing the user.
