Who we share your data with
Some data is transferred and/or stored with third-party services we use, such as payment processors. This is done as a way to provide you with a better overall service and user experience.
Here is a list of services we use to improve our service:
- PayPal – we use Paypal as one of our payment processors. During checkout, a client will provide login information and credit card info. This information is processed directly within this gateway payment and we do not save it on our sites.
How long we retain your data
If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognise 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.
How we protect your data
We use SSL/HTTPS throughout the site. This encrypts user communication with the servers so personally identifiable information is never captured by third parties without authorisation.
In case of a data breach, system administrators will immediately investigate those users affected and will attempt to reset passwords if needed, after informing the user.
