I understand the importance of our data, so here goes…
Who I am
An individual called Rebecca Green, based in the UK. I have no affiliate companies. My website address is: https://www.rebecca-green.com.
What personal data I collect and why I collect it
Contact and comments
When visitors leave comments on the site I collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection. I also use the plugin called Subscribe to Comments Reloaded, which allows visitors to subscribe to notifications.
If you use the Contact form I will collect the data shown (your email address, name and any message), your IP address and browser user agent string. This will be transmitted to me as an email to an inbox to which only I have access. The Contact form I use is a plugin called Fast Secure Contact Form.
If you leave a comment on my 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, it 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, it 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.
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.
I use Jetpack by WordPress.com.
Who I share your data with
If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so I can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.
For users that register on my website (if any), I 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.
How long I retain your data
If you send me an email, the email will be retained indefinitely. This is so I can refer back to any comments as my work continues, and contact you to say thank you and start a conversation if appropriate!
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 I hold about you, including any data you have provided to me. You can also request that I erase any personal data I hold about you. This does not include any data I am obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.
Where I send your data
Visitor comments are checked through an automated spam detection service.
My contact information
If you have any concerns regarding my use of your data, you can contact me by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you for reading!
