Who we are
Hi! I’m Kaye. Where you see “we,” this is using the generic boilerplate privacy language. Where I say “I,” I have added my own information.
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.
I don’t use one of those here. You have to go to kayeboesme.com and read the information about how to email me.
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 have an account and you log in to this site, 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
Jetpack, WordPress, and my hosting company collect data analytics for me. I don’t know what data they collect on you. What they show me is generic location, pages visited, page views, and visitors to the site. I can’t see info on individuals. Please view their data policies if you need more information about how site traffic is used.
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.
For my main site kayeboesme.com, Google Analytics is used. This is not used on my WordPress subpages kayeboesme.com/epiphany or kayeboesme.com/pangrammatike. I set Google Analytics to delete many kinds of data after 16 months. All I want to know is whether people are visiting my sites. Whatever my hosting company collects, they collect.
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.
Where we send your data
Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.

What automated decision making and/or profiling we do with user data
Industry regulatory disclosure requirements
None that I know of.
