Who we are
Our website address is https://NorthEastAzureUserGroup.co.uk.
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.
If you leave a comment on our site you may opt-in to save 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
We do not use (or have stopped using) plugins that do, or “might” collect personal data other than those that track usage statistics and have proven to be GDPR compliant. They are:
- Shield Security https://onedollarplugin.com/products/shield-security/pro/
- wp-statistics http://wp-statistics.com/
- StatCounter https://statcounter.com/
- Email Subscribers https://www.icegram.com
How long we retain your data
If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognise 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.
Where we send your data
Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.
How we protect your data
This blog (WordPress) is well secured and kept up to date. So are the plugins. The blog is hosted on a well maintained, secured OS. The platform components are well secured, they are updated regularly and fast to provide the best possible protection. All this happens on well-secured infrastructure that complies with rigorous security requirements. As such it adheres strictly to privacy laws.
Backups are made securely and only used for recovery purposes.
What data breach procedures we have in place
This blog is monitored for security issues and breaches. We don’t want to be hacked and if we ever are we’ll let you know on this blog (if that’s still an option after the hack). Note that as we do everything to minimize having any information on you we cannot notify you personally.
