Privacy Policy

Your privacy is important to us at Elisa Downing, www.elisadowning.com. As so, we have developed this policy in order for you to understand how we collect, use, communicate and make use of personal information. Below outlines our privacy policy.

Who we are

Our website address is: https://www.elisadowning.com.

What personal data we collect and why we collect it

Comments

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.

An anonymized string created from your email address (also called a hash) may be provided to the Gravatar service to see if you are using it. The Gravatar service privacy policy is available here: https://automattic.com/privacy/. After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.

Media

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.

Contact forms

When you sign up for either a newsletter, blog, opt-in, respond to communications from us (surveys, requests for feedback), contact us via phone, mail, email, or so forth, we will collect certain types of personal data that you give us. This personal data is information that can be used to identify you.

When you subscribe to a form we may ask you to provide, and we will collect, either your first name or first and last name depending on what product you are signing up for. We will also ask for your email address.

Cookies

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 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.

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.

These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracking your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.

Who we share your data with

We do not share your data with anybody.

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.

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.

Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.

Additional information

How we protect your data

Elisa Downing will acquire your personal information for the use of administering our business activities, providing customer service and making certain items and services available to our customers and prospective customers.

We will not use your personally-identifying information about you when you visit our site unless you give us that information. As such, we will not sell or otherwise transfer your personal information to unaffiliated third parties without the approval of the user at the time of collection.

We may disclose information when legally compelled to do so when we are under the understanding and belief that the law requires this for the protection of our legal rights.

Email Information

If you decide to correspond with us via email, we may retain the content of your messages together with your email address and our responses. We provide the same protections for these electronic communications that we employ in the maintenance of information received online, mail or by use of the phone. This extends to registering to our website, signing up through a form or making a purchase from the site.

Choice / Opt-Out

We provide users the opportunity to opt-out of receiving communications from us and our partners by reading the unsubscribe instructions located at the bottom of any e-mail they receive from our company at any time. Please contact us at Contact@elisadowning.com if you have any questions.
