Information We Collect
We collect information when you login, leave comments, make a purchase, or fill in a form.
If you make a purchase, we will give you the option to create an account. Any payment and account information is stored on our servers using the WooCommerce plugin. Learn more here: https://woocommerce.com/document/marketplace-privacy/
If you leave a comment on our site, you may opt-in to saving your name, email address, and website in cookies for convenience. These cookies will last for one year.
If you visit our login page, 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.
We do not have a cookie banner as the cookies we set are strictly necessary. Showing a banner with no real choice would follow the letter, but not the spirit, of the law. Furthermore, we believe it is harmful to show you privacy notices that are not useful.
