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.

Contact forms

Any information provided via our contact forms will be stored on our encrypted email server. Data can be deleted upon request. 

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 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.

Cookies may also be used for digital ad retargeting.

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.

Analytics

When you visit www.thenewwinegirl.com, our analytics package will collect some basic information about your browser. For example, what operating system you’re using, what browser you’re using, if you’re visiting from a mobile phone or desktop, how long you stayed on the site, and what pages you looked at. This helps us understand how visitors browse our site so that we can help make your experience better. 

Should you make a purchase, we will also collect personal information such as your name, address, postal code, phone number, etc. This information is required to ship your merchandise and is securely stored in our merchant service platform, Stripe. 

Who we share your data with

Under no circumstance will we share any personal information that we collect from you with any third parties or websites without your express consent. All of the information you provide to us is kept confidential and used solely for order processing and shipping, or to create a better visitor experience.

If you give us permission to send you marketing emails, your email address will be used for this purpose. You may opt-out or unsubscribe from our marketing emails at any time via the unsubscribe link at the bottom of each email.

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.

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.

How we protect your data

All payment information we collect is submitted through SSL – a standard internet security measure. Any data that we store about you is kept secure behind a firewall in our database and is not accessible to the public. 

 

If you have any questions about our privacy or security, please email info@thenewwinegirl.com and we’ll be happy to answer any questions you may have or provide further information.
