What Personal Data We Collect

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.

Contact Forms

When visitors reach out to us using a contact form found on the Website, we collect the data as shown in the form fields.

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 visit our login page, we will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data.

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

Occasionally, at our discretion, the Website may engage in affiliate marketing, which is done by embedding traceable links into the Website. If you click on one of these associated links, a cookie will be placed on your browser to track any sales for purposes of commissions. These third-party sites have separate privacy policies, and we therefore have no responsibility or liability for the content and activities of these linked sites.

Analytics

We automatically collect certain information about you and the device with which you access the Website. For example, when you use the Website, we will log your IP address, operating system type, browser type, referring website, pages you viewed, and the dates and times when you accessed the Website. We may also collect information about actions you take when using the Website, such as links clicked.

Sensitive Personal Information

At no time should you be requested to submit sensitive personal information to the Website. This includes your social security number, information regarding race or ethnic origin, religious beliefs, health information, criminal background, or trade union memberships. If you elect to submit such information to us, it will be subject to this Privacy Policy.

How Your Personal Data May Be Used

The information collected may be used in the following ways:

  • To operate and maintain the Website
  • To send you communications, such as administration emails, confirmation emails, technical notices, updates on policies or security alerts
  • To respond to your comments or inquiries
  • To track and measure advertising on the Website
  • To protect, investigate and deter against unwanted or illegal activity

Who We Share Your Data With

We may share your information with third parties when you explicitly authorize us to share your information. At this time your personal information is not shared with any third-party providers.

Additionally, the Website may use third-party services to maintain and operate the Site. Each third-party service’s use of your personal information is dictated by their respective privacy policy. For example, we use Google Analytics to help understand how visitors interact with the Website.

Finally, when required by law and/or regulations, we may share your personal information. We will not otherwise sell, distribute, or reveal your personal information without your consent. We respect your privacy and are committed to protecting it.

How Long We Retain Your Data

If you leave a comment, on the Site 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.

What Rights You Have Over Your Data

If you have an account on the 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 or update any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.

You also have the right to ask that your personal information be corrected, updated or deleted. To exercise this right, please contact us through email at contact (at) outquesting (dot) com.

Do Not Track

Do Not Track (“DNT”) is a setting that can be activated on certain browsers to block behavioral tracking from third-party services. We honor DNT signals, and will not track, plant cookies or use advertising when a DNT browser mechanism is in place.

Children’s Information

The Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) puts parents and/or legal guardians in control. However, the Website does not knowingly collect information for children aged 13 years and under. We also do not specifically market to children aged 13 years and under. If a parent or legal guardian believes that the Website has personally identifiable information of a child in its database, please contact us immediately at contact (at) outquesting (dot) com and we will do our best to promptly remove such information from our records.

Where We Send Your Data

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