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 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 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.

Contact Forms

If you contact us via a form on our website (as opposed to a direct email), then we capture your name, email address, and the reason for the contact so we can provide the best customer service possible. If you are interested in attending one of our workshops, we will capture your name, email address, and your workshop preferences so we can let you know when a workshop is scheduled. After you submit your information and we contact you, we may collect additional information about you such as your country, city, state, and time zone, so we know which courses will apply to your situation.

We will keep this information indefinitely so that we can contact you when a course is scheduled and open. We may also use this information to send special offers to you, someone who is interested in a workshop.

Contact information

We collect your name and email address via this site so that we can keep in touch with you. We send informative and inspiring newsletters, eGuides, and other downloads. From time to time, we send product/service updates and special offers to our Sunday Dinner Stories community. We hate SPAM and send only high-quality information that helps you get to know who we are and how we might be able to help you stay connected with all generations of your family forever.

Analytics

We use Google Analytics and Google Analytics for WordPress by MonsterInsights to analyze our website data. Through these applications, we capture technical information such as your IP address, geo-location, and cookies that help us manage our site better and provide more relevant content to our community. Please review Google Analytics Terms and Privacy Policy. Please review MonsterInsights’ Privacy Policy.

Who we share your data with

We do NOT share your information with any affiliates or partners. We only share information with a third-party when an application requires the data to help us manage our site appropriately.

How long we retain your data

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize 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.

Additional information

How we protect your data

We know how important your personal data is. In fact, our founder worked in the data management and data security areas of information technology for 25 years. We use strong passwords for our online applications. We use two-factor authentication whenever available. We educate our staff to lock their workstations when they are away from their desks. We also ensure that third-parties that store data on our behalf are GDPR compliant.

What data breach procedures we have in place

If we learned that our subscriber data had been breached, we would ensure that our subscribers were contacted immediately to explain the breach. We would also focus on the root cause and work with our third party application partners (e.g., WordPress and Mailchimp) to prevent a future breach.

What third parties we receive data from

We do not receive data from third parties at this time.
