Your privacy is very important to us. At howtomediacenter.com we have a few fundamental principles that we follow:
We don’t ask you for personal information unless we truly need it. (We don’t like services that ask you for unnecessary info for no apparent reason.)
We don’t share your personal information with anyone except to comply with the law, develop our products, or protect our rights.
We don’t store personal information on our servers unless required for the ongoing operation of our site. We have removed user registration and social login to minimize the amount of user data stored in our server.
What personal data we collect and why we collect it
Like most website operators, we use 3rd party tools to collect non-personally-identifying information of the sorts 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 non-personally-identifying information is to better understand and improve our posts’ performance and server resources usage.
When visitors leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form, the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection. Your email address is used only if you opt-in to get notifications for replies to your comment. We hate spam and we won’t send you any other kind of email.
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 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.
In order to improve our content and website performance we use 3rd party tools to analyze post and page views, outbound link clicks, referring URLs and search engine terms, user agent and country. We do not store any of this information in our servers.
Who we share your data with
We use Google Analytics and WordPress.com Stats to collect data about our site performance. We use Google AdSense to show you relevant advertisement. We are very careful with our ads, please don’t use an ad blocker and please report any suspicious or malicious ad so we can block it and report it back to AdSense.
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.
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
Visitor comments are checked by Akismet, an automated spam detection service.
