What personal data we collect and why we collect it
Depending on what you do on this site, your data may be collected for a number of different reasons. This data may include personal information that you offer, such as your name and email address in comments, the contact form, or the newsletter signup form.
The site may also collect technical data, such as information about cookies, and analytical data, such as the browser or platform you’re using or whether you got here through a web search. If you share posts, third-party sites such as Twitter or Facebook may also collect data so that your shares will be connected to your accounts at those sites.
We collect this data for a variety of reasons, depending on the context of your visit. The reasons are explained below.
When you leave comments on posts, we collect the data you enter in our comments form, and also your IP address and browser user agent string to help with spam detection. Our spam detection service is Akismet.
An anonymized string created from your email address (also called a hash) may also be sent to the Gravatar service to see if you are using it.
After your comment is approved, your profile picture (if you have one) will be visible next to your comment. If you don’t have a profile picture, the site will assign a randomized geometric avatar to you, and that avatar will be yours if you make future comments.If you would like us to delete your comment, you can contact us by email here.
You can use our contact form to send us questions. The form collects the data you enter and your question or comment, and sends us an email. These form submissions remain on the site indefinitely, but we do not use the information submitted through them (or your email address) for any other purpose. This contact form is a feature of the Visual Form Builder plugin from WordPress.org.
When you leave a comment, we also collect your IP address and browser user agent string to help with spam detection. Our spam detection service is Akismet.
If you would like us to delete your contact form information, you can contact us by email here.
DEI Consultation Questionnaire Form
The DEI Consultation Questionnaire collects your identifying information and your answers to the questionnaire. This information is sent to your DEI Consultant, and is retained on the site for 3 years. This contact form is a feature of the Visual Form Builder plugin from WordPress.org.
If you would like us to delete your questionnaire information and responses, you can contact us by email here.
This site adds cookies to help identify you as a commenter. 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 make a purchase from this site, the Woo Commerce purchasing software may also add cookies to help keep track of your order. See below for WooCoomerce data collection information.
Embedded content from other websites
Posts on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Some of this embedded content from other websites (such as YouTube or Instagram) may behave in the exact same way as if you visited that other website.
We use the Jetpack analytics system to track visits to this site and views of specific pages. This helps us understand which posts or pages are the most relevant to people.
Jetpack also tells us about the search terms people use to find our site, and this helps us create posts to answer these requests more clearly.
Jetpack also tracks the platforms visitors use so that we can be aware of how our site works on phones, tablets, and desktops.
Subscriptions to Posts
If you subscribe to our posts, the site will collect your email address and send you a notification each time a new post is published. If you would like to unsubscribe, you can contact us by email here.
Emotion Dynamics Newsletter
When you sign up for our newsletter, the site gathers your name and email address, and your agreement to receive monthly newsletters. Your email address is never used for any other purpose, and you can unsubscribe at any time.
Our newsletter program is a WordPress plugin developed by MailPoet, and it gathers data on how many newsletters we send to you, whether you open them or not, whether you click on any of the links, and whether you unsubscribe.
How long we retain your data
The data our site collects is retained indefinitely, though you can ask us to delete it at any time. In some cases, keeping this data will help you in future visits to this site. For instance, if you leave a comment, your comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so the site can recognize and approve your follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.
How we protect your data
This site is protected through constant monitoring and updating of all apps and plugins, through technical measures such as encryption and two factor authentication, and by daily monitoring by Sucuri and our web host SiteGround.
What data breach procedures we have in place
We do not store any financial data on our site. The only personal data that could be gathered here is your name, email address, IP address, and questionnaire answers. If there is a data breach of your information, we will attend to it as soon as we learn of it and contact you to let you know what happened, and what the possible problems and solutions are.
What rights you have over your data
If you have left comments, filled out a contact form, filled out a DEI Questionnaire, or subscribed to a newsletter here, 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.
