Who we are
Our website address is: https://larrydburton.com.
What personal data we collect and why we collect it
I try not to collect any personal data but if you interact with this site is is, by nature, collecting data from you. What you give this site is voluntary and I expect everyone using the Internet to understand that their is no true privacy on the Internet.
That being said, lets get into some specifics.
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. Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the website.
If you fill out a contact form, if I even put up contact forms expect to be contacted by possibly anyone. While I won’t share contact information I’m hosting this site on a cheap hosting service located in Germany and I don’t have much control over their security policies. If that bothers you, like it does me at times, don’t fill out contact forms.
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 visit our login page, 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.
Who we share your data with
The content of this website is shared with the world. Behind the scenes data I share with no one but, again, this site is hosted on a cheap hosting service located in Germany. I can’t begin to know who they may share analytics 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.
You can ask that but this is a hobby for me and I’m not going to let it take over my life. I’ll send you the information you ask for and delete your personal information if you ask when and if I have time and depending on your attitude. If this is unacceptable then don’t use this site.
Where we send your data
Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.
Your contact information
I do not share contact information that is given to me in confidence.
