privacy policy

Who we are

Our website address is: http://abaciaart.com.

What personal data we collect and why we collect it

I don’t collect any data that I know of! That’s certainly NOT my intent, but I have no idea what WordPress does. To that note, if you CHOOSE to contact me via email, I do keep your email address, but I would absolutely NEVER sell it or give it out to anyone for any reason!

Comments

I’ve disabled comments so this shouldn’t cause any issues.

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

I’m pretty sure I’m the only one able to upload media, so again, shouldn’t be an issue. If you are able to upload media, seriously, contact me because that shouldn’t be possible!

Cookies

I’m going to leave this language in to cover my butt. So: 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 visit our login page, 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.

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.

Who we share your data with

NOBODY – unless WordPress is doing it without my knowledge!

How long we retain your data

I’ve turned comments off to the best of my ability, so this shouldn’t be an issue. However, 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

I don’t send your data anywhere. I’m not trying to collect it. Again, not sure what the WordPress policy is so: Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.

Your contact information

I only keep your contact information if you have contacted me directly via email.

Additional information

I’m not a lawyer and I have edited this privacy policy to the best of my abilities. I believe in your privacy, and mine, and since my information is not for sale, I would never sell yours either. Again, the ONLY time I, personally, would collect any information from you is if you contact me directly.

How we protect your data

I don’t sell it.
