Who we are
The website address of this blog is http://www.ernstraud.org/blog, a subset of Ernstraud Magazine (http://www.ernstraud.org), which is a publication by Kent V. Busse, J.D.
Material below is based on a WordPress sample somewhat customized. It describes how WordPress functions and what we do with email information you submit.
What personal data we collect and why we collect it
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.
If you upload images to the website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. (This might apply to pictures from your camera.) Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the website.
You leave your email address when you upload a post or a comment, enabling you to follow (subscribe to) the thread. Subscribing to the blog in the sidebar triggers an email to you where you have to click a button to opt in. In either case, we may send you occasional notifications, messages, or surveys to accomplish the mission of Others First -Achieving Happiness blog and Ernstraud Magazine.
If you leave a comment on this site you may opt-in to saving your name, email address and website in cookies on your computer. 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 have an account and you log in to this site, 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. Currently there are no log in accounts on this site. 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.
Google Analytics, if used on any pages, record bulk statistics rather than personally identifiable data.
This site does not share data.
Retaining your data
If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This helps to 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.
Your rights 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.
Currently there are no user accounts or stored personal information other than the confidential email address you enter when making your comment.
Sending your data
Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service (currently Akismet).
Your contact information
Currently there are no accounts and therefore your information is not stored except for the email address you used making your post or comment.
