At Uncoveries (uncoveries.com), your personal information is important to us. Here are what types of information we collect when you visit and use our website.
What personal data is collected & why
When you visit our website, we collect the standard information through our third-party analytics service (Google Analytics): cookies, user statistics, IP address, location, pages you’ve visited and what links you’ve clicked on. We collect this information for data marketing analysis so we can deliver the best website content and experience for our visitors—a necessary part of running a website.
If you choose to leave a comment on the website, we collect data shown in the comments form with your IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection. An anonymized string created from your email address may be provided to the Gravatar service to see if you are using it. After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.
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.
Who we share the data with
Our email list is managed by MailChimp, and visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service such as Akismet, operated by Automattic, Inc. We never sell or rent your information to third parties.
We take reasonable steps to safeguard your privacy and security by regularly updating our website and plug-ins to the most up-to-date version to incorporate any new security or bug fixes as they are available. We cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit or guarantee that information on the website or third-party services may not be accessed, disclosed, altered or destroyed. Your privacy settings may also be altered by accessing through third parties such as social networks. We are not responsible for the functionality or security measures of any third parties.
How long the data is retained
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. Aspects of user statistics are retained indefinitely on our third-party analytics service, and various cookies can last between 90 days to 2 years.
You have the right to see the personal data we keep about you, or if you concerned about any inaccuracy in the information.
If you have left comments on the website, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you. 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.
