Who we are
Our website address is: http://www.swish-swirl.com.
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.
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.
Embedded content from other websites
Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. 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 guarantee that we never share your data with anyone outside this website.
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.
Additional information about Newsletter subscription
Additionally, we hold a subscription list from those who opted in to receive email updates from us. Swish & Swirl will use the information you provide on the subscription form to be in touch with you and to provide Newsletters and updates on new patterns. We would not use your email for any other purposes.
You can change your mind at any time by clicking the unsubscribe link in the footer of any email you receive from us, or by contacting us directly through an email provided in our emails. We will treat your information with respect.
The basic point is: under no circumstances will we use your email address (collected either when you leave a comment, or subscribe to this blog via RSS feed, or subscribe to our Newsletter) or any data which may be collected by the widgets of this site automatically other than for the correct functioning of this website. We will never share or use any personal data collected by this site. We will always treat your information with respect and privacy it deserves.
