Who we are
Our website address is: http://saraphir.com.
We are committed to protecting and respecting your privacy. We use your Personal Information for providing and improving the Service. By using the Service, you agree to the collection and use of information in accordance with this policy.
This page provides information regarding how we handle the personal information you provide by either signing up to follow the blog or when leaving a comment, or the cookies that are used to make the website function and provide links to e.g. social media networks.
What personal data we collect and why we collect it
You can subscribe to following the blog by email by filling out the relevant subscription form. By filling out this form you are agreeing to your name and email to be held by us and processed according to this policy. You can unsubscribe at any time at which point you will no longer receive email notifications.
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.
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 have an account and you log in to this site, 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.
Who we share your data with
This site is hosted by WordPress.org via Siteground. These services are used to set up and maintain the website and all information collected from people using the site is processed by them or relevant third parties (such as plugins that provide links to social media or spam filters).
We will not disclose your personal information to any other third parties unless we are under a duty to disclose or share your personal data to comply with any legal obligation.
This policy only applies to our site. If you leave our site via a link or otherwise, you will be subject to the policy of that website provider.
How long we retain your data
If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognise 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.
We may from time to time contact people or organisations via email. When contacting individuals this will usually only be if the individual has made the initial contact or given verbal consent to being contacted. All information provided via email will be held securely on the servers that host the email account. This information will never be shared with any third parties unless consent is given by the individual.
Changes to the Policy
This policy is governed by the laws of Scotland and the Data Protection Act 2018.

How we protect your data
We will take all possible measures to protect your privacy and the data you provide. If any data protection breaches occur due to system failures we will take all possible measures to correct this.
