What personal data we collect and why we collect it

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 anonymised 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.

Contact Forms and Sponsorship Applications

Your connection to this website is secured via HTTPS and we use an SSL Certificate to warrant the secure connection between your web browser and this website. We also employ software to force all connections to use HTTPS rather than plain HTTP; this is to ensure that you do not inadvertently set up an insecure connection. All of this helps to prevent third parties viewing your data whilst it is in transit to this site.

When you submit an enquiry or send a message via our contact form, or apply to donate or sponsor a child, the information you enter is held on this website momentarily whilst it is being forwarded to us or to our payment processors as appropriate. Once the message is forwarded, the information is deleted from the website. Thus your information is not stored for any longer than is necessary to perform this function.

Messages and enquiries for Equipe are despatched to us via email with a secure connection to the sending server.

Payment processing is currently undertaken by PayPal via a secure connection. Your transaction is in accordance with PayPal’s Privacy Policy.

Cookies

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.

These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracing your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.

Analytics

We do not currently use analytics or tracking services that identify individuals (for example, Google Webmaster Tools, Google Analytics, etc.)

Who we share your data with

If you make a donation or set up sponsorship via this website, your details are handled via PayPal. See above for details of their privacy policy.

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.

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.

Where we send your data

Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.
