Who we are
Our website address is: http://footstepsblog.net.
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.
Contact forms / Ask a Question
If you use the contact / ask a question form, you have the option of providing your name and email address details. This is to enable us to contact you to reply to your question should you wish. You are also given the option of subscribing to our mailing list.
We use MailChimp to manage our weekly newsletter. When you subscribe you provide your name & email address, and are required to confirm that you are happy for us to use your contact details to send the newsletter every week. We may occasionally contact you separately from this weekly newsletter in exceptional circumstances.
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 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.
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
FootstepsBlog.net will not share your data with any third party.
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.
For our newsletter mailing list we will retain your data until you tell us you wish to unsubscribe.
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.
You can request to unsubscribe from our newsletter mailing list at anytime by contacting us, or by using the links in any emails from us.
Where we send your data
Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.
If you wish to contact us concerning the personal data we hold, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or via the contact page.
How we protect your data
Your data is protected using the WordPress and MailChimp systems.
