What personal data we collect and why we collect it

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.

Fancier recommendations

Only registered users can leave a recommendation for a fancier. Recommendations will always be moderated and checked by the website administrator before they will be published on the website.

When you leave a fancier recommendation on the site we collect your registration data, the data shown in the comments form, your IP address and your browser user agent string to help spam detection. After approval of your recommendation by the website administrator, your recommendation will be shown to the public, together with your name and link to your profile page.

Contact forms

When using contact forms on the website, you agree that the provided data may be sent to the respective recipients of the message, either be it a fancier in case of a contact form that is sent to the fancier, either be it the website administrator in case of a website contact form. The information that you provide on the contact form may be stored by the recipient, but only for the intent to give you feedback on your message.

Cookies

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.

Embedded content from other websites

Pages on this website 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 tracking your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.

Analytics

We use Google Analytics to gather information and statistics about website visits. These cookies are stored and do not contain your personal information. We only use these cookies to generate global visitor statistics.

How long we retain your data

If you leave a comment or recommendation, the comment/recommendation 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, 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. 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 or recommendations, 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

Registrations, comments and/or recommendations may be checked through an automated spam detection service.
