Privacy Policy

I (‘we’ or ‘us’ or ‘our’) respect the privacy of my online visitors and recognise the importance of protecting any information collected from you.

I have adopted an online Privacy Policy that guides how I collect, store and use the information you provide online. (Please note: this policy applies only to this georginatolmay.com site and not to web sites maintained by other companies, organisations or individuals to which or whom I link).

If you have questions or concerns regarding this statement, please contact me.

Collection and Use of Information

Our primary goals in collecting personally identifiable information are to provide you with the information, products and services made available through our web site. This may include, but is not limited to, communicating with you and managing your account, if you have one.

Log Data

When you visit the Site, our servers automatically record information that your browser sends whenever you visit a website as “Log Data”. This Log Data may include information such as your IP address, browser type or the domain from which you are visiting, the websites you visit, the search terms you use, and any advertisements (if present) on which you click. For most users accessing the Internet from an Internet service provider the IP address will be different every time you log on.

We use Log Data to monitor the use of the Site and of our Service, and for the Site’s technical administration. We do not associate your IP address with any other personally identifiable information to identify you personally.

Cookies and Other Technologies

We may use cookies and other technologies to passively collect demographic information, personalise your experience on our site and monitor advertisements and other activities.

Cookies

Cookies are small files downloaded to your computer to track movements within web sites. We may link cookie information to personal information and to monitor website usage. Cookies may be deleted at any time by clearing your web browser’s history and/or cache.

As website functionality develops, cookies may be linked to information regarding what items you have selected for purchase at our store, if we have one. This information may be used to keep track of your shopping cart. And we may use cookies to deliver content specific to your interests.

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 anonymised 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. 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.

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.

How long your data is retained

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.

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.
