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, 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: https://automattic.com/privacy/. After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.

Media

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.

Contact forms

If you choose to use a contact form to contact us, then please understand that any contact info you put in that will be received by us…which is kind of the point of using a contact form. smh.  And probably your IP address as well to make sure that authorities can track you down if you’re naughty. So don’t be naughty, for goodness’ sake!  (Santa’s always watching…bwa ha ha ha!)

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 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.

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.

Analytics

Sometimes we do analytics, but that’s to see which pages folks like best and least, which country y’all come from and, if you have any cookies or thingies trailing after you like toilet paper on the bottom of your shoe, there might be more general demographic data like gender, age range or other things you’ve pretty much made public if you haven’t nailed down your profiles for whatever, pretty tight, which is your responsibility, not ours.

Who we share your data with

Other than the cookies mentioned above, if you click on any ads or sponsor links, their privacy settings will be in effect, as those are not our responsibility, as you are clicking on those on your own choice.

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.

Additional information

If you are choosing to sign up for a newsletter, we will use the contact info you provide, to send a newsletter to you.  We do not collect info and sell it to 3rd parties. Please be responsible with the choices you make.

While we love and respect you as a fellow being of the universe, and we’re happy if you want to receive our newsletter or other notifications, even happier if you leave a tip in the jar for our coffee fund :D, we just don’t have the energetic resources to squander on trying to do nefarious things with your info, data, whatever.  If you leave a comment, send an email or click on an ad or a sponsored link (those are pretty obvious what they are), then unless you’ve been living under a rock, you are already aware that thingies like your IP address, email, comment, cookies are being collected. We pretty much ignore any data except the actual comment or email message, but the 3rd parties that do the cookiefest and collect those other things, they do whatever it is that they do with that info and you should take a look at THEIR privacy policies if that’s a concern to you.  So, ya know, click those thingies at your own risk and of your own volition. We cannot be held liable for what you choose to click on or post or email in conjunction with those 3rd parties that you’ve been made aware of in the text of this privacy policy page.

Blessed Be, you beautiful Soul-Being!
