What personal data we collect and why we collect it

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 anonymized 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: https://automattic.com/privacy/. 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.

Cookies

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.

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 tracing your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.

Analytics

Who we share your data with

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 we send your data

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

simpleinspiration.us respects your privacy. We do not collect personally identifiable information about you unless you voluntarily provide it, such as when you provide email contact information to subscribe to the SI newsletter, send feedback to SI, or respond to a survey. If you voluntarily provide your email address or other contact information, we might also use it to inform you of changes to SI, to survey you about your use or opinion of SI, or to ask for your support. At your request, we will remove your contact information from our files.

Privacy

We do not make your contact information or any other personally identifiable information available to anyone outside SI or its service providers (who use the information only for authorized SI purposes) unless we are legally required to do so.

In addition to the above, we collect certain anonymous (non-personally identifiable) information to help us improve the SI web site and to evaluate the access and use of SI materials and the impact of SI on the worldwide educational community:

  • We collect information you provide about your use of and satisfaction with SI through email you send us, through the SI feedback form, and through SI surveys, whether or not you voluntarily include your contact information.
  • We use the Google Analytics web analytics service, which collects certain data about this website’s traffic via a DoubleClick cookie and the standard Google Analytics implementation.  The specific Google Analytics feature we use is Google Analytics Demographics and Interest Reporting.  Google Analytics Demographics and Interest Reporting enables SI to use information such as user age, gender and interests from Google’s Interest-based advertising or 3rd-party audience data to improve services on the SI website and to help us understand the aggregate demographics of our users.  We cannot and do not obtain personally-identifiable information from Google Analytics.  SI does not and will not merge any personally-identifiable information with non-personally identifiable information unless you have been given notice of and have given prior affirmative (i.e. opt-in) consent to that merger.  Google’s ability to use and share information collected by Google Analytics about your visits to SI is restricted by the Google Privacy Policy. You can prevent Google Analytics from recognizing you on return visits to this website by disabling (opting out) the Google Analytics cookie. You can also view and change the currently available settings for Google Ads.
  • We use Facebook Pixel code built into our website to track conversion, optimization and remarketing of our Facebook advertising. The data are saved and processed by Facebook; SI cannot see any personal data about you. The data may be used by Facebook in accordance with their privacy policy for other purposes unrelated to SI, including showing you advertisements from Facebook and Facebook partners. You can opt out of Facebook’s use of cookies and Facebook Pixel remarketing through settings on your Facebook account.
  • We may use other web analysis tools that are built into the SI web site to measure and collect anonymous session information.
  • We also use “cookies” to improve your simpleinspiration.us web experience and to collect anonymous information about how you use simpleinspiration.us. However, cookies are not required for simpleinspiration.us use. If your browser is configured not to accept cookies, you will still be able to access SI and its content.

When we report information about simple inspiration access, use, and impact, we report aggregate, non-personally identifiable data. Occasionally, we report quoted feedback from users. We do not attribute feedback to specific individuals unless we obtain permission to use that person’s name along with the feedback.
