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.

Who we share your data with

We transfer and store your personal data with security measures in place. In certain circumstances, we may share your information with selected service providers who perform functions on our behalf such as providing IT, delivering our email alerts and other support and maintenance services that help us run the website. Our service providers will only use your information to the extent necessary to perform their functions. We have the right to share your information with law enforcement or public authorities if legally required to do so, or to prevent security, fraud or technical issues.

Email alerts.

If you have registered to receive email updates from us, and you no longer wish to receive these, you can unsubscribe by contacting us or by using the unsubscribe link which is included on all email alerts.

Security and storage of personal data.

We place great importance on the security of all personal information associated with our website users. We have security measures in place to protect against the loss, misuse and alteration of personal information under our control. Whilst we cannot ensure or guarantee the security of information online, we use all reasonable efforts to protect it. There are procedures and technologies to maintain the security of personal data from the point of collection to the point of destruction; these controls protect against the unlawful or unauthorized processing, accidental loss of, or damage to, personal data. You have the right to access information held about you and to request an amendment or removal of such information if necessary. If you have any questions about the information we hold about you or the way in which your data is being collected or used which are not answered by this Privacy Statement please contact us at info@whilecharging.com.

How long do we keep your information?

We will only hold your information for as long as necessary to fulfill the purposes for which it was collected, before making it non-identifiable or deleting it. If you choose to unsubscribe from a service, we may keep a list containing your personal details so we know you have unsubscribed.

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.

Links to other websites.

This Privacy Policy does not cover links within this site linking to other websites. If you follow a link to one of our partners, please note that these websites have their own privacy policies and we do not accept responsibility or liability for information supplied to these websites.
