Who I am
I’m Audriana Smith, the blogger behind Planting Vineyards, website address: https://plantingvineyards.com.
What personal data I collect and why I collect it
When visitors leave comments on the site I 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.
The contact form submission data — IP address, user agent, name, email address, website, and message — is submitted to the Akismet service (owned by Automattic) for the sole purpose of spam checking. The actual submission data is stored in the database of this site and is emailed directly to me. This email will include the submitter’s IP address, timestamp, name, email address, website, and message.
If you leave a comment on the site you may opt-in to saving your name, email address and website in cookies. These make it easier for you, so you don’t 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, there is a temporary cookie set to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.
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
Data collected from your browsing experience is monitored by Google Analytics, as I mentioned above.
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 provide your name and email for subscription purposes, we save those so that you can get all the updates you’ve opted in for. However, you can unsubscribe at any time.
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.
Names and emails of subscribers are stored by our third party email service.
