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.

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 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

Users can contact us at the following link: https://thevespersproject.com/contact

Data from form submissions will be viewed and handled by site staff and administrators. Other than any exceptional cases where the safety or wellbeing of an individual or group may be in question, all data passed through this form is entirely confidential.

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.

Analytics

Site analytics are obtained through Google’s Search Console. Our site has no server-side analytics set up at this point in time, other than what Google and other search engines already perform independent of our processing and interpretation.

Who we share your data with

No one, make it easy.

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, 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

If you have an account on this site, or have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.

Where we send your data

Visitor comments are checked through an automated spam detection service known as Akismet. Find out more here: https://akismet.com/privacy/

Additional information

How we protect your data

We don’t share it with anyone. Additionally, passwords are never visible to anyone outside of the account owner. All user accounts are left untouched unless otherwise requested.

What data breach procedures we have in place

Delete the entire website and start over.

In all seriousness, the risk of a data breach on this platform is minimal. While possible, limited personal data beyond stored emails should be contained on this site. In the event of a data breach we will ensure that all steps are taken to notify individuals of the event and do everything in our power to secure the site and prevent it from happening again.

It is worth noting that our practices up to this point are considered preventative maintenance. In other words, we’re keeping our WordPress instance up to date, consistently evaluating our site health, and many other key changes under the hood (redirecting from the less-secure HTTP to HTTPS in all instances, for example).

What third parties we receive data from

None. All content on this site, unless otherwise noted has been produced by a member of the Vespers Project team or someone working in direct affiliation with the team. Any content not produced by a member of the team, such as musical works, will be credited as necessary.

What automated decision making and/or profiling we do with user data

We don’t examine or profile our user data.
