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.
This site also uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service offered by Google that tracks and reports website traffic, which is currently a platform inside the Google Marketing Platform brand. We do anonymize data before storage and processing begins.
Google Analytics offers an opt-out browser add-on to provide website visitors the ability to prevent their data from being used by Google Analytics. You can find more information here: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout.
Who we share your data with
We will not sell, distribute or lease your personal information to third parties unless we have your permission or are required by law to do so.
How long we retain your data
Information from contact form entries is retained for a year, analytics records for a year, and customer purchase records for 10 years.
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
Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.
If you have privacy-specific questions or concerns, please send us a message here.
