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.

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.

Privacy considerations when using official Payments extensions

We accept payments through a gateway   PayPal, some our customers’ — data will be passed to the respective third party, including information required to process or support the payment,

such as the purchase total and your customer’s billing information.

How payment providers use data

To better understand how a provider uses and stores the data shared with them, check their privacy policies directly:

What data is collected

Information shared with a payment provider to process payments includes:

  • Name
  • Email
  • Address
  • Phone
  • City/State/Zip
  • Unique payment identifier
  • Payment provider identifier

How long do we store or keep your data?

There are lots of reasons to retain records, including if a charge is disputed by a customer, for tax audition, or for other legal concerns. While laws like the GDPR have “right to erasure,” We are not required to erase records we need for these other aspects of our business.

That said, our privacy policy, alongside our terms and conditions page, should make it clear how long we retain their personal data and why.

How can you access, update, or delete the collected data?

In addition to knowing what we doing with your personal data, you need to know how you can update their data, including:

  • Getting a copy of their data
  • Updating their data
  • Deleting their data

Please contact Richard Hale – rich@battleboards.co.uk if you would like to review or have us remove any of your data.

 

 

Thank you again for your custom and support, your personal data is important to protect and we will never share or pass on any of your data we have collected.
