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

We may, from time to time, ask for contact information in order to include readers in a contest, drawing, or to participate in various activities. Any time a Contact Form is posted to this site, the specific uses to which the information collected will be used will be explicitly stated. Supplying the information requested by a contact form is purely voluntary, and we do not “gate” the site based on whether or not you have shared contact data.

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 tracing your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.

Analytics

Who we share your data with

We do not share your individual data with any third parties, other than sharing with entities such as Amazon’s AWS service that serves our podcast episodes or other, similar, third party service providers that enable the basic functionality of the site. The site owner does not monetize user data by distributing, sharing, or otherwise disseminating membership lists or similar rosters.

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. User data is collected by Blubrry.com, which provides statistical information specifically related to podcast downloads. The LuckyOrange service provides us with site user data analytics, so that we can continually improve the guest experience.

Your contact information

Contact information is only collected for specified uses and only with the full, voluntary participation of the user.

Additional information

How we protect your data

We have installed an SSL Certificate not the site, and any financial transactions are processed over SSL. Minimal amounts of user data are stored on the server in any case. Also the Mal Care Pro plug-in is installed to help bolster the security of site information.

What data breach procedures we have in place

In the event of a data breach, information about the breach will be publicly disclosed here on the site, on the DISDads Podcast Facebook Page, and in the private DISDads Group. Affected individuals will be contacted directly, using whatever contact information has been previously provided by the user.

What third parties we receive data from

We receive minimal amounts of data from LuckyOrange, Amazon AWS, and Google Analytics, all related to monitoring the use of the content delivered by the site.
