Who I am
My website address is https://daveportersart.co.uk/.
What personal data I collect and why I collect it
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.
When you submit a contact form an email is sent to me to enable me to see your enquiry and respond to you. I also store all submissions on the webserver to ensure that this information is not lost.
If you 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.
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 same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.
I use Google Analytics to help us understand what my site users are interested in. This information is anonymous and I do not and will not ever try and track an individual user.
Who I share your data with
I do not and will not share data with any 3rd parties.
How long I retain your data
If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so I can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.
For users that register on my website (if any), I 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
You can request that I erase any personal data I hold about you. This does not include any data I am obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.
Where I send your data
Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.
Your contact information
Please contact me via email at [email protected]
How I protect your data
I have taken steps to secure my website to the best of my ability. The site uses an SSL certificate to encrypt all data sent to and from the website.
What data breach procedures I have in place
In the case of an actual or suspected data breach, I will take the steps outlined by the Information Commissioners Office at https://ico.org.uk/for-organisations/guide-to-data-protection/guide-to-the-general-data-protection-regulation-gdpr/personal-data-breaches/
What third parties I receive data from
We do not buy data from 3rd parties. However, when advertising on various platforms I can use analytics provided by those platforms.
What automated decision making and/or profiling I do with user data
I do not do any automated decision making or profiling of site users.
