In this policy we explain what information we collect from users accessing our blog. It contains also information about how we store, use, transfer and delete that information. Our goal is not only to comply with the privacy law, but to gain your trust.
Our site records the text of each comment, as well as the visitor’s IP address and the user’s browser agent chain to help detect spam.
An anonymous chain created from your email address (also called hash) can be provided to the Gravatar service.
What personal data do we collect and why do we collect them?
Find your digital self does not make money on ads, so we do not collect data to advertise. We only collect information about your interactions with our blog. Some of that information is actively given to us, as part of your email address which you use to leave comments.
This information includes records of those interactions, your Internet protocol address, information about your device (size, operating system or browser type) and reference information (how the user reached a particular page). It also records which pages the user sees (including the amount of a given page and for how long).
We use this information to:
- Provide, test, improve, promote and customize services
Combat SPAM and other forms of abuse.
- Who do we share your data with?
We do not transfer information about you to third parties in order to provide or facilitate third party advertising. We will not sell information about you to a third party.
Embedded content from other websites
Some of the content you see on the blog is not hosted on our servers. These “embeddings” are hosted by a third party and embedded in a page, so it seems to be part of that page. For example: YouTube videos, Giphy gifs, audio files, Twitter tweets, Facebook or Instagram posts.
These files send data to the hosted site as if you were visiting that site directly (for example, when you load a Media publishing page with an embedded YouTube video, that video appears due to a pointer to the files hosted by YouTube, and in turn, YouTube receives data about your activity, such as your IP address and the number of videos you watch).
Where do we send your data?
Visitor comments may be reviewed by an SPAM automatic detection service.
If you leave a comment on our site you can choose to save your name, email address and website in cookies. This is for your convenience, so you don’t have to fill in your data again when you leave another comment. These cookies will last one year.
How long do we keep your data?
If you leave a comment, it and its metadata are preserved indefinitely. This is done in order to recognize and approve successive comments automatically instead of keeping them in a moderation queue.
Of users who 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 (with the exception of their username). Web administrators can also see and edit that information.
How do we protect your data?
We use encryption (HTTPS / TLS) to protect data transmitted to and from our site. However, no data transmission over the Internet is 100% secure, so we will try to keep your data safe.
We will send you emails with summaries and newsletters. You will have the option to remove the subscription from our blog in each email received.
We will not send you any email to request personal information. If you receive any email of this type send it to firstname.lastname@example.org so we can investigate it.
