What personal data we collect and why we collect it

Comments

I love getting comments on my blog, so if you do leave one I really appreciate it!

When a visitor leaves a comment on my blog, they may be requested to input their details to comment. This information will not be sold or shared to third parties and will not be used for marketing purposes. Although an automated spam detection service may be used to check comments for security purposes. 

An anonymised string created from your email address 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.

Cookies

If you leave a comment on rbekhaj.com you may opt-in to save 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. This lasts 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.

Google Analytics

I use Google Analytics to track the traffic on rbekhaj.com. This includes demographic and interest reports. The information is all anonymous, however it does gather basic information such as gender, age and relevant browser. If you wish to opt out, you may visit Google’s Ads Settings.  

Embedded content from other websites

Posts on rbekhaj.com may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.) from time to time. 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 tracing your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.

 

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. 

 

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, however this does not include any data that must be kept for administrative, legal, or security purposes.
