Who we are
Our website address is: http://www.read-edit-write.com.
What personal data we collect and why we collect it
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.
When you sign up for the newsletter and/or blog posts, we collect your first name, email address, your subscription option(s), and your IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection. The data is used only to send the subscribed content.
Other contact forms collect your name, email address, and other information so that you can be contacted about services you are interested in or questions you may have.
We place a cookie in your browser that notes the day you surfed this website; this enables us to not show an end-of-page newsletter/blog post opt-in pop-up if you have seen it in the last 21 days.
If you leave a comment on our site, you may opt-in to save 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.
I use Google Analytics to gather anonymous aggregate, not individual, data about website visitors.
Who we share your data with
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
Where we send your data
Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service. Subscription information is sent to our email provider, Mailchimp. Other contact form information is sent to my personal email address.
Spam is icky; I will never sell your name, email address, and list preferences to anyone.
My contact information
There are contact forms all over the website. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions or issues.
