What personal data we collect and why we collect it

Webinars

If you pay for a webinar that is offered by us, you are as anonymous as you choose to be. We highly encourage people to pay by blank money order, use a throwaway email and pseudonym, although we offer online payment for those who prefer that. We do not need to know your name or location; all we ask is that we have a working email address to inform you that we have received your payment and send out the webinar information so that you may join and/or download it. We do not care where the email address comes from or whether you ever use it again.

When you join the webinar, we do not log IP addresses, locations, real names, or any other personal data, and we encourage you to log into any and all webinars with a pseudonym or handle. We also encourage you not to give any personal information about yourself during the webinar, whether by verbal participation or in the chatroom; all information you divulge is viewable by all parties in the webinar.

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.

If your comment is moderated or moved to spam due to violations of the comment policy, any and all information associated with it is also deleted. If you are banned at any point from the site, we save and use the minimal amount of information necessary to do so.

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.

Contact forms

If you contact us using a form on this site, only the information you submit is viewed by us. We do not save any of that information.

Cookies

If you leave a comment on our site you may opt-in to saving your name/online handle, 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.

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.

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. We cannot control that.

Analytics

We do not engage in extended analytics or demographic mapping. We have a basic stats module for security reasons that tracks IP addresses and how often they access the site to catch those who try to attack it through various means.

Who we share your data with

We do not share data with any party outside of the website.

How long we retain your data

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely, or until we decide to delete them.

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

You have the right to delete your user account or request that the webmaster delete it. You also have the right to use false information, such as a nom de guerre, VPN, or fake email address.

Where we send your data

Your comments are backed up as part of the site, and are public. We do not send your data anywhere except as part of the site backup, which is sent to a separate server.

Your contact information

You can contact us with privacy questions at info@americanpartisan.org.
