Who we are
My website address is: https://willdavid.net. My name is Will David, the sole proprietor of this website.
I do not permit comments on this site, so no data is saved.
But, if you somehow manage to leave a comment, when visitors leave comments on the site I 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.
As I am the only one permitted to upload media to the site, this will not apply to you.
If, somehow, you manage leave a comment on my 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 my login page, I 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, I 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. As I do not permit accounts on my site other than my own, this will not apply to you.
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. As I am the only person permitted to publish on this site, this will likely not apply to you.
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.
The share buttons are a plugin by Heateor called “Sassy Social Share.” I use the basic set of buttons which do not have interactions with external websites. If you choose to click on one of these buttons, it will take you to the external website designated on the button, and provide you with an option to share the post you are currently viewing.
For more information about Sassy Social Share and privacy, you can visit https://support.heateor.com/gdpr-and-our-plugins/
Who we share your data with
If you request a password reset, your IP address will be included in the reset email. That email will go to me, so don’t request a password reset if you don’t want me to know your IP address.
How long we retain your data
If you somehow manage to 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. Again, I don’t allow registrations, so this shouldn’t apply.
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. Fortunately, none of this should come to pass.
Where we send your data
Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.
