What personal data we collect and why we collect it

 

Comments

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 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.

 

Contact forms

When visitors fill in a Contact Form, we store the names, email addresses and any other information that you voluntarily supply to be able to reply to the request. This information is stored in a secure location for the sole purpose of meeting your requirements.

 

Cookies

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.

 

Analytics

We use analytics to monitor website effectiveness. The analytics we perform uses Google Analytics which does not allow us to track or see any personal data.

 

Who we share your data with

We do not sell or otherwise disclose personal information we collect about you, except as described in this Privacy Policy. We share your information in the manner and for the purposes described below:

  • within Swagefast, where such disclosure is necessary to provide you with our services or to manage our business;
  • with third parties who help manage our business and deliver services. These third parties have agreed to confidentiality restrictions and use any personal data we share with them or which they collect on our behalf solely for the purpose of providing the contracted service to us. These include IT service providers who help manage our IT and back office systems;
  • with our regulators, to comply with all applicable laws, regulations and rules, and requests of law enforcement, regulatory and other governmental agencies;
  • we may share in aggregate, statistical form, non-personal data regarding the visitors to our website, traffic patterns, and website usage with our partners, affiliates or advertisers;
  • if in the future, we sell or transfer some or all of our business or assets to a third party, we may disclose information to a potential or actual third-party purchaser of our business or assets.

In addition, we may disclose information about you:

  • if we are required to do so by law or legal process;
  • to law enforcement authorities or other government entities, and;
  • when we believe disclosure is necessary or appropriate to prevent harm or financial loss, or in connection with an investigation of suspected or actual espionage, cybersecurity or security events or other fraudulent or illegal activity.

We also reserve the right to transfer personal information we have about you in the event we sell or transfer all or a portion of our business or assets (including in the event of a reorganization, spin-off, dissolution or liquidation).

 

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.

 

What rights you have over your data

You have a right to request that we provide you with a copy of your personal data that we hold and you have the right to be informed of:

  • the source of your personal data;
  • the purposes, legal basis and methods of processing;
  • the data controller’s identity; and
  • the entities or categories of entities to whom your personal data may be transferred.

 

Your contact information

Contact information is stored in a database.

 

How we protect your data

We have implemented and maintain appropriate technical and organisational security measures, policies and procedures designed to reduce the risk of accidental destruction or loss, or the unauthorized disclosure or access to such information appropriate to the nature of the information concerned. As the security of information depends in part on the security of the computer being used to communicate with us and the security being used to protect User IDs and passwords please take appropriate measures to protect this information.

 

What data breach procedures we have in place

If we are made aware of the fact that personal data has been breached from our systems, we will immediately deliver a breach notification directly to the victims. In addition, we will use other media platforms where necessary and relevant to communicate the breach.

 

What third parties we receive data from

We do not receive any data from third parties which is then used on our website/platforms.
