What personal data we collect and why we collect it?

To make your browsing experience seamless and better, this blog does collect some user information.

Comments: 

Comments are the lifeline of any blog as it is on this blog. Any user information collected through comments is only used for engagement with the users and not disclosed on any other platforms.

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:

User information collected through contact form is only used to interact with the users and not disclosed on any other platforms.

Cookies:

If you leave a comment on our site you may opt-in to save 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.

Information on 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.

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, you can 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?

We NEVER share your data with anyone. Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service because we hate spam as I am sure to do you.

This website does not share your data with any third-party organization. We only store data through cookies to make your browsing experience more comfortable. You can choose to turn off these cookies through your browser settings.

The Era I Lived In is committed to safeguarding your privacy. In case you have any other questions, please feel free to write to me at theerailivedin@gmail.com
