Privacy Policy

 

Who We Are

Our website address is: https://www.stickymudandbellylaughs.com.
 

What personal data we collect and why we collect it

Depending upon your use of my site, I may collect some or all of the following personal and non-personal data:

  • Name
  • Gender
  • Email address
  • IP address
  • Web browser type and version
  • Operating system

We require this information to understand your needs and provide you with a better service, and in particular for the following reasons:

We may periodically send promotional emails or other information which we think you may find interesting using the email address which you have provided.

 

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.

 

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.

 

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.

 

Analytics

I may analyse your use of my site and gather feedback to enable me to continually improve my site and your user experience.

 

Do We Share Your Data?

We will not sell, distribute or lease your personal information to third parties unless we have your permission or are required by law to do so, if I am involved in legal proceedings or complying with legal obligations, a court order, or the instructions of a government authority. We may use your personal information to send you promotional information about third parties which we think you may find interesting if you tell us that you wish this to happen.

 

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 subscribe to 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). 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.
 

How We Protect Your Data

We will only store or transfer your personal data in the UK. This means that it will be fully protected under the GDPR.

Changes To Privacy Policy

I may change this privacy policy from time to time. This may be necessary, for example, if the law changes, or if I change my business in a way that affects personal data protection.

Any changes will be immediately posted on my site and you will be deemed to have accepted the terms of the privacy policy on your first use of my site following the alterations. I recommend that you check this page regularly to keep up-to-date.
