Who we are

Our website address is: https://articlethirteen.com.

Comments

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.

Media

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.

Cookies

If you leave a comment on our website, you may choose whether or not to save your name, email address, and website in cookies. These are for your convenience so you don’t have to fill out your information again when you post another comment. These cookies will be kept for a year.

When you visit our login page, we will place a temporary cookie to see if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie includes no personally identifiable information and is deleted when you shut your browser.

We will also set up numerous cookies when you log in to keep your login information and screen display preferences. Login cookies are only valid for two days, whereas screen options cookies are valid for a year. If you choose “Remember Me,” your login will be saved for two weeks. When you log out of your account, the login cookies are deleted.

An extra cookie will be kept in your browser whenever you modify or publish an article. This cookie contains no personally identifiable information and just displays the post ID of the article you just modified. It expires after 1 day.

Embedded content from other websites

This website’s articles may contain embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves exactly like if the visitor had visited the other website.

These websites may gather information about you, utilise cookies, embed extra third-party monitoring, and monitor your engagement with embedded material, including tracking your interaction with embedded content if you have an account and are signed in to that website.

Who we share your data with

If you request a password reset, the reset email will include your IP address.

How long we retain your data

If you post a comment, both the comment and the metadata associated with it are saved indefinitely. This is so that any subsequent comments will be detected and approved automatically rather than being held in a moderation queue.

We also store the personal information provided by users who register on our website (if any) in their user profile. All users have the ability to view, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Administrators of the website can also view and edit that information.

What rights you have over your data

You can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we possess about you, including any data you have provided to us, if you have an account on our site or have posted comments. You can also ask us to delete any personal information we have about you. This excludes any information that we are required to store for administrative, legal, or security reasons.

Where we send your data

An automated spam detection service may be used to review visitor comments.
