What personal data we collect and why we collect it
The login ID and password you supply to log in to this website is collected for the necessary purpose of allowing you to login again and recognizing you as a valid user in situations where the website needs to distinguish valid from invalid users. As of this time, no personal profile information is requested or required for you to safely use this website.
Articles and comments that may deliberately or inadvertently contain private or even potentially private personal information will be moderated and if appropriate, will be deleted from this website by the moderator solely at our discretion. We do our best to police the website but we cannot guarantee that nothing undesirable will never slip through our moderators and administrators.
When visitors leave comments on our website 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.
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 form information is held only long enough to resolve the reason for your contacting us. No long term-record is kept of information supplied on contact forms or on those who submitted contact forms.
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.
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.
We do no analysis of user data either per-user or in-aggregate. We do not provide any analytical organization with access to any data held on this website.
Who we share your data with
Unless you follow links included in the articles on this site to another website, your data is never shared with anyone. As it says above… “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.”
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, 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 though in a practical sense, it is rarely seen and never edited.
What rights you have over your data
You can 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
Visitors leaving comments or completing our contact form comments are always validated through an automated spam detection service known as Google reCAPTCHA.
Your contact information
We protect your contact information to the best of our ability, and within the technical capabilities of a standard WordPress website. Please don’t put ANYTHING in your contact information that you would not put in your profile on any other non-commercial, public interest organization website. We cannot guarantee and we make no guarantees about the protection of your profile information.
In general, we never authorize the release of any club member or registered subscriber information. We value the club’s relationship with you and we act accordingly to protect your information.
