who i am
my website address is: https://www.mysticferocious.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.
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 visit my login page, i 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, i 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, 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.
who i share your data with
data is only shared with third-party payment providers (i.e. paypal, stripe) if you purchase an item from the shop. otherwise, your secrets are safe with me.
how long i retain your data
if you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. this is so i can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.
for users that register on my website (if any), i 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 i hold about you, including any data you have provided to me. You can also request that i erase any personal data i hold about you. this does not include any data i am obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.
where i send your data
visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.
if you purchase something from the shop, some of your data will be passed to a third party, including information required to process or support the payment, such as the purchase total and your billing information.
my contact information
how i protect your data
this site is encrypted with a 128-bit SSL (secure socket layer) certificate.
We collect information about you during the checkout process on our store.
what i collect and store
while you visit my site, i’ll track:
- products you’ve viewed: we’ll use this to, for example, show you products you’ve recently viewed
- location, IP address and browser type: i’ll use this for purposes like estimating taxes and shipping
- shipping address: i’ll ask you to enter this so i can, for instance, estimate shipping before you place an order, and send you the order!
when you purchase from me, i’ll ask you to provide information including your name, billing address, shipping address, email address, phone number, credit card/payment details and optional account information like username and password. i’ll use this information for purposes such as, to:
- send you information about your account and order
- respond to your requests, including refunds and complaints
- process payments and prevent fraud
- set up your account for our store
- comply with any legal obligations i have, such as calculating taxes
- improve my store offerings
- send you marketing messages, if you choose to receive them
if you create an account, i will store your name, address, email and phone number, which will be used to populate the checkout for future orders.
i generally store information about you for as long as we need the information for the purposes for which we collect and use it, and we are not legally required to continue to keep it. For example, we will store order information for 10 years for tax and accounting purposes. this includes your name, email address and billing and shipping addresses.
we will also store comments or reviews, if you choose to leave them.
who on my team has access
members of my team* may have access to the information you provide us. for example, both administrators and shop managers can access:
- order information like what was purchased, when it was purchased and where it should be sent, and
- customer information like your name, email address, and billing and shipping information.
my team members have access to this information to help fulfill orders, process refunds and support you.
* as of june 2020 i ain’t got a team, but that might change.
what i share with others
i share information with third parties who help us provide our orders and store services to you; for example —
i accept payments through PayPal. when processing payments, some of your data will be passed to PayPal, including information required to process or support the payment, such as the purchase total and billing information.
