Website terms, privacy policy and cookie notice for the website RoxaneLapa.com

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 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: https://automattic.com/privacy/. After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.

Disqus

We use the Disqus plugin for comments. You can read their privacy policy here.

Contact forms

When you send us a query through our website, the particulars you provide through the form, will be sent to us. Additionally, if you use a form on our website, your IP address will be recorded.

If your query was a legitimate one (i.e not spam or a scam), your provided data will only be used to help answer your query, and will not be shared with other parties, except where necessary to answer your query.

Your IP address will remain private, unless the query was spam, a scam, or a hacking attempt. In that event, your IP address, along with any other information you provided willingly, may be provided to your website host, ISP, and/or the relevant authorities.

Contact Form 7 with Recaptcha

We use the Contact Form7 plugin with Google reCAPTCHA spam prevention on our contact page. You can read their privacy policies here, and here respectively.

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.

Other Plugins

Google Analytics

We, like most websites, use Google Analytics on our site. Google Analytics does not tell us who you are, but it does create cookies that track your movements on our site. It tells us what area you are accessing the site from, how you entered our site (example from Google Search), what browser you used, what pages you visited on our site, and how long you stayed on said pages. It does not give us personally identifiable information. The information it does give us is simply used to streamline our website. We may analyse the data to see what and where we can optimize.

You can read more about Google’s Analytics privacy policies here.

Sassy Social Sharing

We use Sassy Social Sharing on our blog articles. This enables you to share articles to various social platforms via icons on the page. If you choose to use this service, and want to know more about Sassy’s privacy policy, you can read that here.

Who we share your data with

Besides the prior mentioned plugins, your submitted data will be shared with a representative of our company so that they may answer your query.

How long we retain your data

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognise 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.

Website Terms

Please consider all data and media on this site as the intellectual property of Roxane Lapa. Do not reproduce data from this site without clearly indicating where said data came from, and linking back to the original page.
