What personal data we collect and why we collect it
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.
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.
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.
Who we share your data with
We use a tool called “Google Analytics” to collect information about visitor behaviour on CheckTechs.net. Google Analytics collects information about what pages visitors visit, how long the visitors are on the website, how the visitors get to the website and what the visitors click. Google Analytics collects only visitors’ IP address, rather than their personal information that can identify who they are (like their names and addresses).
The processing and sharing of your personal data by Google Analytics are governed by Google’s privacy policies. We use your information collected by Google Analytics to improve our website so that we can provide you with a better experience, and we do not use it for other purposes.
Google Analytics places a cookie on your web browser to identify you as a unique visitor the next time you visit our website, but the cookie is only under the control of Google. You can disable cookies on your browser to prevent Google Analytics from identifying you when you come back to CheckTechs.net. You can also install Google Analytics Opt-out Browser Add-on on your web browser to prevent your data from being collected by Google Analytics.
We use a comment hosting service called “Disqus” to host the comments you leave on CheckTechs.net. Disqus may collect your name, email address, IP address and so on when you create an account and/or post a comment.
Links to Other Websites
Our website includes links to other ones, whose privacy practices may differ from those in CheckTechs.net. If you access other websites using the links provided, they may collect personal information from you. The processing of your information is governed by their privacy statements. We do suggest you to carefully read the privacy statement of any website you visit.
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
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.
