What personal data we collect and why we collect it

We use your personal data (name and email address) to add you to our mailing list to receive newsletters and blog notifications. We are processing data based on consent. This means that you have given your consent for us to contact you. If you would like to remove your consent at any point please contact us at newsdesk@blackmorevale.net and on 01963 400186

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.

Cookies

A cookie is a small file which is placed on your computer’s hard drive. They help in providing you with a better service from our website as we are able to monitor which pages you find useful and which you do not. A cookie will never give us access to your computer or any of your personal information, other than the data you choose to share with us.

We use Google analytics to identify which web pages are being used. More on how Google Analytics uses cookies can be found here

We only use the information that we collect for statistical analysis purposes. From the data that we collect we can analyse how our website is working from the traffic we receive and will help us to improve our website service.

We assume that you are happy to receive all cookies your browser settings allow. Most web browsers automatically accept cookies but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer.

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.

Who we share your data with

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.
