Privacy Policy

Who we are: Basically, no one.

Our website address is: http://badtidings.info.

What personal data do I collect and why?

NONE.  Zero.  Nada. I don’t. Your data are none of my business.  The stuff below is what WordPress collects and what they do with it.  I HIGHLY recommend you install privacy protection to prevent them from getting anything at all.

Comments

When visitors leave comments on the site WP collects the data shown in the comments form, and 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.

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 exactly the 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 I share your data with: Absolutely no one. I have none to share.

How long WP retains 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 do you have over your data: You own it.

If you have an account on this site, or have left comments, here is the personal data I hold about you, including any data you have provided to me:  { NOTHING }

You can also request that I erase any personal data I hold about you which is probably just your email address. I recommend you use an email protection site like SPAMEX so no one ever sees your real address. This does not include any data WP is obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes. I have no control over them.

Where do I send your data?

Visitor comments are checked through an automated spam detection service.

Industry regulatory disclosure requirements: I don’t save any data.
