What personal data we collect and why we collect it
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.
Degarrin uses its best efforts to respect and protect the privacy of our visitors. At our site, any personal, identifiable information that is collected from individuals is done so voluntarily and knowingly.
For the purpose of improving our website content, we do collect aggregate information regarding which pages of the site are being visited to estimate our audience size and user patterns. No names, email addresses, or other personal, identifiable information is collected in this process.
Degarrin collects and maintains various types of data, such as names, addresses, zip/postal codes, e-mail addresses, background, employment, spiritual/religious, lifestyle, membership etc. This is done through the use of cookie files in an effort to improve the services that we provide to users by streamlining the content within various areas of the website to speed up your searches, remember you upon your return to the site, or to store information about your site preferences, etc. This information is used solely by Degarrin for internal purposes only. Degarrin lists are never sold to or shared with third parties for any reason.
We may store your IP address when you visit and register an account on our site for safety and security purposes, and if deemed necessary by us, to help identify users who have breached any part of our Terms.
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
We will not sell, share, or rent your personal information to any third party or use your e-mail address for unsolicited mail. Any emails sent by Degarrin will only be in connection with the provision of agreed services, etc. as outlined in our terms.
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. To make such a request, login to the Degarrin site and go to My Account -> Records Deletion Request.
Where we send your data
Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.
