Proposed Text: If you decide to upload visuals to the platform, it’s advisable to refrain from uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) in them. Users visiting the site can retrieve and isolate any location data from the images on the platform.

Stored Data

Proposed Text: If you enter a comment on our platform, you may opt-in to store your name, email address, and website as cookies. This feature is for your convenience, so you don’t have to re-enter your details each time you submit a new comment. These cookies have a shelf life of one year.

Upon visiting our login page, we will implement a temporary cookie to assess if your browser can accept cookies. This cookie contains no personal information and is discarded once you close your browser.

Upon logging in, several cookies will be set to save your login details and screen display preferences. Login cookies are valid for two days, while 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 purged.

Incorporated Content from External Sources

Proposed Text: The articles on this platform may contain integrated content (e.g., videos, pictures, articles, etc.). The integrated content from external platforms behaves in a parallel manner to an individual visiting those external platforms directly.

These external platforms may gather data about you, utilize cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and oversee your interaction with that embedded content, inclusive of tracing your engagement with the embedded content if you possess an account and are logged into said platform.

Authorized Data Sharing

Data Retention Duration

Proposed Text: If you post a comment, the comment and its associated metadata are retained indefinitely. This practice is in place for recognizing and sanctioning follow-up comments automatically, instead of holding them in a moderation queue.

For individuals registering on the platform (if any), we house the personal details they provide within their user profile. Users have the ability to view, alter, or delete their personal information at any time (with the exception of altering their username). Website administrators also have access to and can modify that information.

Data Control Rights

Proposed Text: If you possess an account on this platform, or have submitted comments, you hold the right to request an exported document containing the personal data we have saved about you, comprising any information you have provided to us. Additionally, you can request the annulment of any personal data we possess about you. This excludes any data we are obligated to retain for administrative, legal, or security purposes.
