What personal data we collect and why we collect it

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 with 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 (if you provided one on Gravatar) 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.

Contact forms

If you submit any content via our Contact Us form, you will need to provide at least your first name and an e-mail address – this is so that we may respond to your enquiry. The e-mail address will not be stored on our website nor in our database and will only be used for the purposes of replying to your message. After your enquiry is dealt with, your e-mail address will be stored in the e-mail client of whomever responds to your message but will not be used outside of the context of that enquiry and once your enquiry is dealt with, the conversation will be deleted.

Cookies

If you leave a comment on our 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 have an account and you log in to this site, we 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, we 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.

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.

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 tracing your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.

Analytics / Marketing

When someone visits beardeddragonsrock.com we use a third party service, Google Analytics, to collect standard internet log information and details of visitor behaviour patterns. We do this to track things such as the number of visitors to the various parts of the site and interactions with the site. This information is processed in a way which does not identify anyone. We do not make, and do not allow Google to make, any attempt to find out the identities of visitors to our website. This helps us to concentrate on providing content for the website that is useful to people rather than spending time on content that nobody actually wants to read.

This site also uses the Facebook Pixel code which measures your activity with the site. We do not have access to any personal information from this and we cannot identify you through this. We will not create any custom audiences from any details you have shared with us and as such Facebook is considered to be the Data Controller and Data Processor. Should you not wish Facebook to use this information to provide you with a customised advertising experience (and thus not share you website visit with them) you can do so at https://www.facebook.com/ads/preferences/

This site no longer uses any Facebook Pixel code to measure your activity with the site.

We use the SendPulse web browser push notification plugin to alert users, who explicitly opt-in, when new content is published on this site. We do not hold any personally identifiable information regarding your opt-in and all data relating to this feature is operated and controlled by SendPulse. You can view their privacy policy, including details of how to opt out again, at https://login.sendpulse.com/manual/privacy/
