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.

Newsletters, Email Opt-in forms, Email Subscriptions

If you subscribe to our newsletter, or submit your email address in any of our opt-in forms, or promotional offers , your email address and your IP address will be stored on our servers (in European Union Region), and on Aweber servers (Outside EU Region). Aweber is our email service provider.

How we protect your data

We use Dedicated or Virtual Private web servers to host our websites. We keep the Operation System of our servers up to date, and implement world class software and methods to keep our data safe.

We keep our website software (WordPress) and its plugins up-to-date.
But because of the dynamic and risky nature of the Internet, and due to the fact that any piece of hardware and software has been developed and being maintained by different people or companies, we cannot claim nor guarantee that we have full control over the safety or security of the data.

Web servers might get hacked. Security Issues and Bugs may be discovered in software, and before the fix is ready, they may get exploited by hackers to access the data.

Therefore, while we try our best to keep the data safe and secure, there’s no way to guarantee the safety and security of the personal data.

What data breach procedures we have in place

As soon as we get informed about any possible data breach, we will inform all of our subscribers.
