Who am I?
If you wanna know who I am personally, check out my home or about pages. If you want to know who I am from a “business” or “privacy” perspective, I’m Jasmine Burke, owner of the blog website www.thoughtsfromjasmine.co.uk.
The Personal Data Collected and Why
When you leave me a (Hopefully lovely) comment on my website, my site collects the data shown in the comments form. Additionally, my site collects all visitors’ IP addresses and browser user agent strings to help spam detection.
If uploading imaged to my site, 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.
You’ll have seen on my website that I have a contact page with a contact form. On this page I collect your name and email, website (if you put one) and whatever message you choose to send to me.
This information stays in my email inbox, and not used for any purpose other than contacting you back. I never share your information and I never pass it on to anyone else without asking for your consent first. Anything that you’ve sent me is safe with me.
Cookies (Unfortunately, not the edible kind)
If you leave a comment, you may opt-in to saving your name, email address and website for next time 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, several cookies save your login information and screen display choices. The login cookies last 2 days, and the screen options cookies last for a year. However, if you select “Remember me” your login cookie lasts for 2 weeks. If you log out of your account, the login cookies are removed.
If you edit or publish an article, an additional cookie saves 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
Sometimes I get a little fancy with my articles, and they may include embedded contend (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor visited the other website.
The Sharing of Your Data
How long I retain your data
If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so any follow-up comments are recognized and approved automatically instead of being held for moderation (You’re no longer a stranger! I want to recognise you!).
For users that register on this website (if any), the website stores your personal information from your user profile. You can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except for your username). I, as the admin, can also see and edit this 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 held about you, including any data you have provided. You can also request that I erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data I’m obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.
Where we send your data
My website may check visitor comments through an automated spam detection service.
Your contact information
If you have any further queries about your privacy, send an email over to email@example.com! I’ll try to help the best that I can.
