Who I am
My website address is: http://amyarmstrongwrites.com/wp.
What personal data I collect and why I 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 complete a contact form to request that I get in touch, I will use it for that purpose. I don’t share that data with anyone else.
If you leave a comment on my 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 my login page, I 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, I 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.
How long I retain your data
If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so I can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.
For users that register on my website (if any), I 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 I erase any personal data about you. Since the only data any user is likely to supply on this site is in the form of comments, you should be able to remove your own comments at your discretion. The same goes for any sort of subscriber profile you choose to create.
If/when I create an email list, every mailing will include an option to unsubscribe. If you opt-out of any list you have opted-into, that’s it. I won’t retain anything.
Where I send your data
Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.
How I protect your data
This is not a secure website. Please only share what needs to be share to join the mailing list or comment on posts. The only protection we attempt to offer is from a poster claiming to be someone else.
What data breach procedures I have in place
None. If I’m alerted that a data breach has occurred I inform anyone who has shared sensitive information and remove it from the servers as best I can. I also inform my hosting service.
What third parties I receive data from
I don’t purchase or solicit data from third parties. If that changes, it will be reflected here.
What automated decision making and/or profiling I do with user data
None. This might eventually be used to customize mailing lists
Industry regulatory disclosure requirements
The only relevant industry regulation that applies to material on this website is related to book reviews and that is the FCC disclosure at the end of relevant reviews indicating whether or not the publisher or author provided me with a copy of the book.
