Here at Clothes-Make-The-Man we understand the importance of our visitor’s privacy.
As with most blogs we maintain a list of those who have subscribed, collect comments posted on our articles and we also look at the visits to our web pages. This involves some collection and storing of information.
The policy may be updated in the future due to added functionality to the site or to meet further legal requirements.
What personal data we collect and why we collect it
If you subscribe to our site we store your email address which we then use to let you know about a new post. You can unsubscribe at any point by using the unsubscribe link in each email.
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.
We like to know how popular each post we make is and so use Google Analytics to analyse our site’s visitor stats.
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.
These small text files stored on your computer are used by this web site.
As mentioned above they are used in the functionality of the web site for such things as placing comments, allowing logins and recording visitor stats for analytics.
Examples of their use are:
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 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.
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.
You can disable cookies in your browser however it may effect the functionality of the site.
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.
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.
What rights you have over your data
If you have an account, subscribe to 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.
