Privacy

Mae Polzine is ran by Mae Polzine and I am a sole trade. With the introduction of GDPR it is now my duty to share my privacy policy with you and what I do with your private data and if you have any queries or concerns about how I use your data please get in contact with me at maepolzine@gmail.com

Who we are

Our website address is: https://maepolzine.com.

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.

We collect information about visitors who comment on Sites that use our Akismet anti-spam service. The information we collect depends on how the User sets up Akismet for the Site, but typically includes the commenter’s IP address, user agent, referrer, and Site URL (along with other information directly provided by the commenter such as their name, username, email address, and the comment itself). For more information, check out their page.

Contact forms

If you have used the e-mail inquiry box on my website then the data entered is stored using WordPress and Google Docs.

The reason why I use this information is to get back in contact with you regarding your inquiry and your information will not be shared anywhere else.

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.

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 do use Google Analytics which stores cookies to keep track of usage data. It also collects information about the sites demographics such as gender, location, age, etc. For more information regarding Google’s Privacy Policy please check out their page for that information.

Who we share your data with

If you enter a giveaway on this site then your information will be shared with a third party and that is the only reason why your data will ever be shared with someone else. By entering into the giveaway you are agreeing to those terms and conditions. Other than that only demographics gathered through WordPress and Google Analytics will be shared but that can not be used to identify an individual.

YOUR PRIVATE DATA IS NEVER SOLD OR RENTED TO A THIRD PARTY

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.
