Google user data

Our application respects and prioritizes your privacy. In compliance with the Google API Service User Data Policy, this section clearly outlines our practices regarding the access, use, storage, and sharing of data obtained through Google's services.

Access and use of data: Our application accesses Google user data only with your explicit consent and for the express purposes which are described herein. The data accessed may include your Google account information, email, contacts, and any other data types as explicitly approved by you. This data is used solely to enhance your user experience and to enable specific features within our application that require this information.

Storage of data: Any Google user data that we store is held with the highest standards of security and confidentiality. We implement robust security measures to protect against unauthorized access, alteration, disclosure, or destruction of your personal information. The storage duration of your data is limited to what is necessary for the provision of our services and is compliant with applicable laws and regulations.

Sharing of data: We do not share your Google user data with third parties, except as necessary to provide our services to you, or as required by law. In cases where data sharing is necessary, we ensure that these third parties adhere to similar standards of data protection as set forth in this policy.

Limitation of use: The use of Google user data is strictly limited to the purposes stated in this policy. We do not use this data for any undisclosed or unauthorized activities. Any changes to the way we access, use, store, or share Google user data will be promptly reflected in this policy, and will be communicated to you as required by law.

Embedded content from other websites

Articles on this site may include embedded content (for example. videos, images or articles). 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.

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.

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 your data is sent

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

If you request a password reset, your IP address will be included in the reset email.

We do not share your data with third parties unless required to do so by law.
