What personal data is collected & why
The types of personal data this website collects, by itself or third parties, are cookies, usage data, and personal data like first name, last name, and email address, from users and site visitors. Personal data may be freely provided by the user in contact forms and comment sections. In the case of usage data, it’s collected automatically when visiting the website. This is done so in order to ensure the website is functioning properly and to analyze how visitors us the site.
When visitors leave comments on the site, Akismet, an anti-comment spam service, collects the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.
You can sign up to receive emails of the comment feed. You will be able to unsubscribe from this function by clicking the “unsubscribe” link in the emails. Your data provided will be deleted once you unsubscribe, unless you have submitted this data for other purposes, like email updates of new content.
If you submit a contact form, the submission will be kept for six months for customer service purposes, but the information submitted, like first and last name and email address, will not be used for marketing purposes unless you opt-in to be updated with new posts.
To initiate and process subscriptions, the following information is used: subscriber’s email address and if signed up while commenting on a post, the ID of the post or comment. In the event of a new subscription being initiated, Jetpack, a WordPress plugin, also collects some basic server data, including all of the subscribing user’s HTTP request headers, the IP address from which the subscribing user is viewing the page, and the URI which was given in order to access the page (REQUEST_URI and DOCUMENT_URI).
This server data used for the exclusive purpose of monitoring and preventing abuse and spam. Functionality cookies are set for a duration of 347 days to remember a visitor’s blog and post subscription choices if, in fact, they have an active subscription.
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.
You can stop these cookies from being stored. Additionally, you can prevent the data regarding how you use the website, including your IP address, from being passed on to and processed by Google. Just download and install the browser plugin available here: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout.

Our content can be shared on social networks, like Facebook Twitter, Pinterest, and StumbleUpon. We use Social Warfare. It establishes a connection between these social media networks and users through the click of the specific buttons. It doesn’t automatically transfer user data to the networks’ operators.
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. If you’ve signed up to receive emails when we share new content on our website, we continue doing so unless you unsubscribe or email us asking us to remove you from the mailing list. We will never share your email address with anyone else and you won’t be added to newsletters & marketing information you haven’t signed up to.
What rights you have over your data
You have the right to be provided any information about your personal data that is stored, in addition to its origin, the recipient, and purpose. You can request that we erase any personal data we hold about you at any time. (This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes). An email requesting the revocation of your consent to us having your personal data is sufficient. If you feel there has been a breach in protection, you may file a complaint with regulatory authorities.
