Who we are
Our website address is: https://blog.lschristopher.com. It was/is permanently redirected from the original site at https://gothkittygazette.net.
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 can’t), 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.
Akismet collects information about visitors who comment on sites that use their anti-spam service. The information they collect depends on how Akismet is set up on the site, but typically includes the commenter’s IP address, user agent, referrer, and Site URL (along with other information directly provided by the commenter such as their name, username, email address, and the comment itself). This is done to catch people/bots who post spam, because while I find some spam amusing some of it can be dangerous and/or damage the site.
If you leave a comment on my 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 (you don’t, you can’t), 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 (you can’t), 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 (you can’t), 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.
By default WordPress does not collect any analytics data. However, Google Analytics collect some anonymous analytics data for the purposes of evaluating site traffic.
Who we share your data with
By default, WordPress does not share any personal data with anyone. L.S. Christopher’s Goth Kitty Gazette does not directly share visitor data with any third party. Visitor IP information is collected and utilized by our site’s analytics and security applications for the lawful basis of monitoring site traffic, generating site usage statistics, and facilitating the detection of spam and attempted unauthorized intrusions.
How long we retain your data
User and event data is retained by Google Analytics for a period of 14 months.
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 (you can’t), 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. You may request a copy of your data here.
