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.
When you contact Lynne through a contact form on this site, you will be asked for your name and email address. Lynne will retain this information in her address book for the purposes of replying to your questions or requests or to follow up on the conversation in the future. If you wish to have this information deleted, please send Lynne an email requesting this and she will promplty emove your contact information from her records.
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.
Who we share your data with
Your data collected on this website is not shared with anyone.
Our newsletter is sent through MailPoet. MailPoet uses the information your provide when signing up for the newsletter to deliver the newsletter and other emails from this website to your inbox. MailPoet operates on this website and no outside entity retains the information to send you these emails. When you unsubscribe from all of our mailing lists, your email address is retained in an “unsubscribed” list on our website to avoid adding you back accidentally. (For example, if the site has to be restored from a backup prior to the point where you unsubscribed, we can first save the unsubscribed users to keep them unsubscribed after the restore from backup.)
If you would like all of your personal information removed from both websites, please contact Lynne and she will promptly take care of it.
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.
