Welcome to our general privacy page. This page gives a brief overview of privacy on our website.
To us, that makes it sound like we are taking your personal information and selling it outright. We do not, and will not, do that. However, the law considers things like website analytics, personalized ads, etc. as a sale of information. We do use analytics on this website as we need to know what our statistics are. So, in that sense, we “sell” information.
If you’d like to read one of our many specific policies, here they are:
Who we are
Our website address is: https://www.bitofwow.com. We’re a small business who makes and sells items for fun and a bit of profit as well as sometimes writing blog posts!
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.
Note that for comments as well as any contact forms on our website, we use an invisible Google reCaptcha to reduce spam comments, form submissions and registrations.
Google reCaptcha may use visitor behavior as well as IP addresses previously recognized as human (vs bot) to create a score to filter out likely spam.
In some parts of our website, we offer the ability to upload images. If you upload images to the comments section, those images will be viewed publicly. If you submit a post and upload images, you are authorizing us to use that image in your public post. 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.
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.
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.
We don’t delete order information, unless it’s by request.
What rights you have over your data
If you have registered with an account on this website, you may download or delete your data from the privacy tab in your account.
