What personal data we collect and why we collect it

Cookies

We use cookies and similar technologies to,

  • Track overall website usage. This is powered by Google Analytics and does not store any personally identifiable information. You can opt out of these cookies.
  • Display relevant advertisements based on your prior visits to this and other websites on the internet. These ads are provided by Google and it's partners. Google's use of advertising cookies enables it and its partners to serve ads to our users based on their visit to our site and/or other sites on the Internet. You can manage your Google ad settings or opt out of all personalised ads.
  • You can also completely disable all cookies from your browser settings.

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.

You can login to our website by using your Facebook, Google or other accounts. When you try to login, we will request permission from these services to receive your basic profile information (full name and email address) from the connected account. We will then securely create an account on our servers with this information. You can see and edit your profile information anytime on your account settings page.

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.

Contact Forms

Throughout our website, we have put up forms for you to contact us. The information that you submit through these forms will only be used to communicate with you and will not be shared with anyone else.

Comments & Discussion

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 anonymised 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. After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.

Newsletter Subscriptions

You can subscribe to our newsletters. We will collect full names and email addresses of users who wish to subscribe. Users can modify this data or unsubscribe at any time. This data is used only to communicate with subscribers via our newsletters and is not shared with anyone. Newsletters may have sponsored content from time to time. When you subscribe to our newsletters, we will log your IP address and time. This is legally required in many countries as proof of consent.

Media

If you upload images to the website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the website.

Embedded content from other websites

Occasionally, we embed content from third party websites into our website. For example, we may embed a video from YouTube. We strive to embed content only from reputed websites who also take privacy of their users previously. This content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the user has visited the other website. These websites may collect data, 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. We have no control over the policies of these websites. Please refer to the privacy policies of these websites for further information.

Analytics

Like most website operators, we also collect non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. Our purpose in collecting such non-personally identifying information is to better understand how our users use the website. From time to time, we may also release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of our website.

Google AdWords for remarketing

Our website uses the re-marketing services to advertise on third party websites (including Google) to previous visitors to our site. It could mean that we advertise to previous visitors who haven't completed a task on our site, for example using the contact form to make an enquiry. This could be in the form of an advertisement on the Google search results page, or a site in the Google Display Network. Third-party vendors, including Google, use cookies to serve ads based on someone's past visits. Of course, any data collected will be used in accordance with our own privacy policy and Google's privacy policy. Visitors can opt out of Google Marketing Platform's use of cookies by visiting the  Google Marketing Platform opt-out page or the  Network Advertising Initiative opt-out page.

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.

Who we share your data with

We do not share your data with anyone else.

Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.

The security of your Personal Information is important to us, but remember that no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage is 100% secure. While we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your Personal Information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.

We use Google Cloud infrastructure to host and run our website. This is the same secure-by-design infrastructure, built-in protection, and global network that Google uses to protect your information, identities, applications, and devices. Data stored on this infrastructure is automatically  encrypted at rest and distributed for availability and reliability. This helps guard against unauthorised access and service interruptions.

In the event of a data breach, we will notify our users and concerned supervisory authorities and provide recommendations.

External Sites and Links
