Privacy Policy

Who we are

Our website address is: https://robertpimm.com. The following is standard text for any website, which we understand we have to include for legal reasons.

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 spam detection.

Contact forms

I do not share info with anyone else and only use contact information supplied to respond to people’s queries.

The Newsletter Subscriptions forms take you to a service called Mailchimp, which I use to keep up an e-mail list. You can unsubscribe at any time if you wish.

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

Google Analytics

We use Google Analytics to monitor how the website is being used. All the information that Googe Analytics provided is anonymised, although it does show which country users are in.

How long we retain your data

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognise 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.

What rights you have over your data

You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you.

Where we send your data

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

If you’re worried about any of this stuff

Please write to me via the “Contact me” button if you’re worried about any of this stuff. Basically I understand I have to have a “Privacy Policy” page with all kind of scary-sounding stuff but my goal is to put entertaining and interesting stuff on my website for people to read.
