What personal data we collect and why we collect it
We do not currently use personalized accounts or comments in order to help protect your personal information. However, we do utilize cookies and analytics tools in order to better serve our customers. In particular, we use Google Analytics to gather information about the quantity of visitors to our website, as well as their general demographic information (i.e., city and country of web browsing, and web browser used).
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.
Our contact form is designed to be GDPR compliant. While our contact form facilitates in sending your information to our email address, our website (or any third party website) does not save the information in the contact form.
In addition, our “Contact Us” form gathers your name, email, and message, which is sent to us by email. If you prefer to not leave your email in our contact form, feel free to contact us directly by email: [email protected].
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.
