Privacy Policy

The owner of this site, mcocoon2019, takes the privacy of your information seriously. This Privacy Policy applies to the minkscocoon.com website

Who am I

Our website address is http://minkscocoon.com. I’m anyone who loves to write and writes for the sake of the love for writing.

What personal data we collect and why we collect it

I won’t really collect your data (unless the site does so behind my, or even our, backs, which is usually out of my control.) But, I’ll probably know your name if you’ve written it down somewhere. Or even your contact details. If you don’t wish to be identified, it’s perfectly normal and it’s fine with me.

But nonetheless…in case:

We ask for certain information such as your username and/or e-mail address when you register or respond in Lost In The Ink to serve as your identifier under the Comments section. Lost In The Ink may also retain any messages you send and may collect the information you provided in Lost In The Ink or in any form of correspondence to Lost In The Ink. We may use this information to operate and maintain the features of Lost In The Ink. Your username and if you choose to disclose it, your real name will be published publicly. (For other options, please see “What rights do you have over your data”.)

This Privacy Policy applies to all visitors of Lost In The Ink website.

Comments

Please feel free to leave your comments. (I’ll try to swallow the harsh ones; I guess it’s part and parcel of being a writer. I have to ‘just do it’, you know.)

Again…

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

Frankly, I won’t ask you to upload any images – please don’t harass me by uploading disrespectful ones of either yours or other’s physical parts. Let’s be mature about this.

Once more…

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.

Cookies

(I think this is something to do with the background word of the technology I’m using. Sorry if it bothers you; I really don’t have any control over this. I really think I don’t.)

One more time…

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

Please do let me know if I’ve offended you by posting something that’s yours and I didn’t acknowledge it properly. Honestly, I’m new to this; I would need some time and experience to be better. Not saying that I won’t take responsibility if I were to commit this error – I would of course. But, it’s not to enrage you on purpose, definitely.

Bear with me please,…

Articles on Lost In The Ink 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.

Analytics

Who we share your data with

Some of the data that may be collected will be aggregated or statistical, which means that Lost In The Ink will not be able to identify you individually. Lost In The Ink has no intention of sharing your data with anyone or anything. ( I really don’t.)

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.

Where we send your data

Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service. (Hmmm… I have absolutely no idea what this line means. But, it sounds important, so I’ll add it in for your protection.)
