Privacy Policy

This document sheds light on your interactions with our website and how we, along with our partners, manage and utilize your data.

GDPR Overview

In alignment with the EU’s General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) effective from May 25, 2018, we’re committed to providing a safe online experience. Here’s our GDPR-compliance outline.

Data Collection: What and Why

Identifiable Data:
Our site gathers two main types of data:
(i) Directly provided data that identifies you.
(ii) Indirect or automatically collected data.
Some features may require identifiable data like an email for newsletter sign-ups or site comments. We promise not to sell or share your data with advertisers.

Media & Safety:

If you upload images, ensure no location data is embedded. This prevents unwanted extraction of location details from our site.

Cookies & Their Purpose:

Should you comment, we might save your name, email, and site in cookies, making future comments simpler. They last for a year. Partner entities like Google Analytics might also use cookies for analytical purposes. We use cookies to:

Ensure our site runs smoothly.
Make your user experience seamless.
Analyze and optimize site performance.
Provide content tailored to you.

Other Tracking Technologies:

Other tools, like web beacons, help us gather user data. They might be used in our messages to track if you’ve viewed content or clicked a link.

Cookie Management:

Your browser likely accepts cookies by default. You can modify this, but some site features may be limited.

Ad Partners:

Ads on our site may come from third-party networks that tailor ads based on your browsing patterns. Note: third parties might have their own cookies and policies. To opt out of specific trackers:

For broader opt-outs, visit the NAI page or DAA page.

Embedded Content:

Content like videos or images from other sites behaves as if you’re on that site. They might track your interactions, especially if you’re logged into that external site.

Data Retention:

Comments and their related data are stored indefinitely. Registered users’ profile data is also stored, but they can edit or delete it.

Your Data Rights:

If you have an account or left comments, request an export of your personal data. Ask for data erasure, except for data we’re mandated to retain.

Data Protection Measures:

We’ve adopted measures against data loss or misuse. While we do our best, no system is impregnable. In case of a breach, we’ll notify you as quickly as possible, keeping legal and investigative necessities in mind.

Reaching Out & Opting Out:

For queries, corrections, or opt-out requests, email [email protected] We’ll promptly address your concerns.
