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 – for example email and name, 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. After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.

When leaving a comment on our site, we ask you to provide your email and name so that we have a clue if you are not a spammer and also it is for transparency of expression – everyone should know who left the (public) comment – trust factor.

Comment removal request

In the event that you wish to get your comment removed from our site, simply send us an email (see section “contact info” below of this page) for your request and we will do needful to completely remove it from our platform.

NOTE:
1) When you make such request, kindly provide the link to the comment(s) that you wish to get removed.

2) We will send you an email to the email(s) provided in the comment, so that we verify that you are the actual author of the comment(s) prior to proceeding with the removal.

Media

We do not provide for any upload of any kind of asset files.
But in the event we do so and if you upload images (or an asset file) to our 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.

Cookies

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 7-days.

If you publish comment, an additional cookie will be saved in your browser. This cookie includes no personal data and simply indicates the ID of the comment 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, pdf, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.

These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracking your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.

We are not responsible and cannot be held liable for your interactions with those external websites.

Analytics

We currently use only Google Analytics (a third party) on our website. Google Analytics tracks and reports the traffic usage on our website.

But we take the privacy of our readers seriously. To this end we make sure that any “data” that we share with a third party is first and foremost treated to be compliant with the requirements of GDPR. To this end, we make sure that your data is not personally identifiable (including anonymizing your IP address). Additionally, we will never disclose aggregate information to a partner or a third party in any manner that would identify you personally, as an individual.

We do not do any kind of remarketing (the re-use of your data).

Do we share your data with anyone?

This website does not share any personal data with anyone. But we do share “personally unidentifiable data” to analytics – as described in the above section.

Do 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.

What rights you have over your data

If you have an account on this site, or have left any comment(s), 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. We use a service called as Akismet – a third party.

Akismet is owned by Automattic, the company that is behind WordPress itself and they do conform to the GDPR regulations and have a clear privacy policy.
