BELOW IS A SUMMARY OF THE DATA THAT IS COLLECTED FROM THIS WEBSITE (ninalouiselaw.com)
IS THERE ANY PERSONAL INFORMATION THAT I COLLECT FROM PEOPLE THAT VISIT MY BLOG?
Yes. Personal data includes names, usernames, email addresses, IP addresses and website URLs. It also includes traffic statistics through the use of plugins and tools, such as google analytics. I also use 3rd party hosted services such as Jetpack and Bloglovin’. I also collect data that is unidentifiable, for example, browser information in order to view and analyse my blog statisics.
WHY DO I DO THIS?
I use your data to run my site efficiently and to personalise user experience.
HOW DO I PROTECT YOUR INFORMATION?
I will never ask for credit card numbers or payment details. Any personal information is stored within secured networks and this is only accessibly by a limited amount of individuals that have special access rights to these systems. They are also required to keep all of this information confidential. All information that you supply is encripted via Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology. I use a variety of security measures to ensure that any any personal information submitted by a user is kept safe.
DO I SHARE DATA?
Unless I am required to do so legally, I do not sell, trade or transfer your personally identifiable data to any outside parties.
HOW LONG DO I KEEP YOUR DATA FOR?
All metadata and comments are retained permenantely. If you subscribe to my website, any information that you provide is within your personal user profile. All users are able to see, edit or delete their own personal information at all times, except usernames.
WHAT RIGHTS DO YOU HAVE OVER YOUR DATA?
You can request that I erase any personal data that I hold about you. This does not include any data I’m obliged to keep for administrative, legal or security purposes.
When visitors leave comments on my blog, I collect the data submitted via the comment form. The visitors’ IP addresses and browser user agent strings are used to detect spam. After I approve your comments, your profie picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment. You can choose to hear of any “follow-up” comments by email and you can also choose to be notified of any new posts when you leave a comment. Both of these are optional and only you are able to consent to these. If you consent to using cookies whilst submitting a comment, it will remember this information in order to save you doing so when commenting in the future. These cookies will last one year.

EMBEDDED CONTENT FROM OTHER WEBSITES
THIRD PARTY PLUG-INS
I use WordPress “stats” to look at my blog traffic. This can also tell me where people are viewing my website from and also how they were referred to my website (Instagram or Twitter etc.) This website uses Google Analytics to collect information. For example, traffic statistics and visitor behaviour. You can opt out of this by using the Google Analystics Opt Out Browser add-on. Visitor comments are also checked through an automated spam detection service.
WEBSITE BACK-UP & SECURITY
I back-up my website on a weekly basis. This includes personal data and comments. This website is secured by SSL. This website is protected by an online firewall which prevents hacking attempts and security breaches. If there is a breach or security issue I’m emailed immediately by my security provider. If there is a breach I will assess the risk to your personal data and report any significant risks to the correct authorities if necessary.
Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any concerns regarding privacy or if you want me to clarify any of the above information.
I will regularly review this policy and it will be updated when necessary. Last updated on 24th May 2018.
