Privacy Policy

 

Who we are

This is my personal blog at the web address: https://amritabithi.com/.

 

Comments

When visitors leave comments on the site the data shown in the comments form is saved to the database, and if a user wishes to create their own user on this website the user information provided will be saved to the WordPress database to provide user functionality only. I do not collect any user information for marketing purposes or archive any visitor data with the exception of comments that users wish to leave on the website.

I will never send any users e-mail or any other type of marketing or promotion, the only e-mails users may receive from this website are a password reset link if they have created a WordPress user, a welcome e-mail for new user accounts, and in some cases you may receive an e-mail if a pending comment has been approved.

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

When users upload images to this website, they should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Visitors to the website can potentially download and extract any location data from images on the website. A plugin is in use on this site which will attempt to strip out all EXIF metadata from all uploaded images by default, however it is a good practice to be aware of any possible image metadata that you may be uploading online.

 

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 visit our login page, 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.

 

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.

 

Who we share your data with

I do not share any data associated with this website with any other parties, with the exception of Google Analytics which will retain non-identifiable visitor metrics and in Google’s system by default, however I do not archive or use Analytics data for any purpose other than viewing the general usage statistics of my website and to diagnose errors in the site’s code.

 

How long we retain your data

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely unless a user wishes it removed in which case I will remove the user comment at their request.

For users that register on our website, 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). I, the site administrator can also see and edit that information, however my policy is to ignore this data unless a circumstance requires editing it to fix a database or coding error, or to assist a user if requested with their account settings.

 

What rights you have over your data

If you have an account on this site, or have left comments, you can request that we erase your comments and/or user account in it’s entirety if you are unable to do so using the normal site functionality. I do not provide any parties any exported data under any circumstance, legal or otherwise, regardless of the nature or source of the request.

 

Where we send your data

I do not send any data from or related to this website to anybody, however this is a public website and comments left on this website may be viewed by any other visitor viewing the website assuming the comment has been approved to display on the page after moderation.
