Privacy Policy

Effective date: Aug 19, 2023

This policy applies to paulweston.online.com and birdimages.co.uk.

Comments

If you leave a comment on this site, in addition to the data in the comment form, I collect your IP address and browser user agent string to assist with spam detection.

Your email address may be sent, in a non-human readable form (a hash), to the Gravatar service to see if you are using it. The Gravatar privacy policy is available here: https://automattic.com/privacy/. If your comment is approved, your profile picture will be visible to the public when reading your comment.

Cookies

When leaving a comment, you have the option to save your name, email address, and website to cookies. This option is for your convenience only, so you don’t have to fill in your details again with any future comments. These cookies will last for one year.

Embedded Content

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

Data Retention

If you leave a comment, the comment and any metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so I can recognise and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.

Your Rights

If you have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data I hold about you, including any data you have provided to me. You can also 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.

Data Processing

Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.

Affiliate Marketing

When using some links on this site, you will be forwarded to one of my affiliate partners. If you decide to make a purchase, I will be paid a small commission.

Rest assured you will pay the same price when directed by me as you would by visiting the affiliate partner’s website directly.

When you visit an affiliate partner’s website from this site, you help support me. Thank you, I appreciate your support sincerely.

Advertising

I might use third-party Service Providers from time-to-time to show advertisements to you to help support and maintain my site.
