Privacy Policy

1. Who we are

Our website address is https://petertrevor.com.  This site is owned and operated by Peter Trevor.

2. What personal data we collect and why we collect it

a) 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. (This site uses Akismet to reduce spam. The Akismet privacy policy is available here: https://akismet.com/privacy/.)

You may opt-in to saving your name and email address 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.

An anonymised 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.

b) Newsletter

When visitors subscribe to our newsletter, their email address and the name they wish to be known by is sent to the MailChimp service. The MailChimp privacy policy is available here: https://mailchimp.com/legal/privacy/.

c) Analytics

This site uses Google Analytics (a web analytics service). Web analysis is the gathering, collection and analysis of data about the behaviour of visitors to websites. Among other things, a web analysis service collects data on which website a data subject has come to a website from (so-called referrers), which subpages of the website were accessed or how often and for which period of time a subpage was viewed. A web analysis is mainly used to optimize a website.

Google Analytics uses cookies. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website is usually transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there. Google might transfer the personal information collected via this technical procedure to third parties.

The Google privacy policy is here: https://policies.google.com/privacy.

d) Embedded content from other websites

Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behave in the same way as if the visitor has visited those other website.

Those websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracking your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account with them.

3. What happens to the data we collect

a) Who we share your data with

No one (other than the services explicitly stated on this page and in the manner so described).

b) 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.

If you subscribe to our newsletter, the contact information provided is retained indefinitely (or until you unsubscribe).

4. What rights you have over your data

If you 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.

If you have subscribed to our newsletter, you can unsubscribe at any time.
