About this policy
What personal data we collect and why we collect it
When visitors leave comments the data shown in the comments form is collected, along with 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.
Any data collected in contact forms is used for the purpose of responding to the request only and will be deleted as soon as any queries are dealt with.
If you leave a comment/fill in a contact form 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.
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.
Disabling cookies may cause some aspects of this website to not work as expected.

About your data
Who we share your data with
Information is only shared with trusted third parties which are used to improve how this website operates. We use trusted analytics tools such as Google Analytics to track how this website is used in order to make this website better for visitors.
How long we retain your data
If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so any follow-up comments can be approved automatically instead of being held in a moderation queue.
For users that register on Chimmyville (if any), personal information they provide in their user profile will also be stored. 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 held about you, including any data you have provided. You can also request that any of your personal data is erased. This does not include any data that needs to be kept for administrative, legal, or security purposes.
Where we send your data
Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service. We currently use Akismet for this purpose.
What data breach procedures we have in place
If website security is breached and your personal information is compromised you will be informed within 72 hours.
