What personal data we collect and why we collect it Back to top

Comments Back to top

When visitors leave comments on our 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.

Currently we provide comments functionality only on product demo websites at https://themedemos.webmandesign.eu. As those are demo websites only, you should not leave any comments in there anyway. Every demo website contains a page with full preview of sample comments list. For this reason, the commenting functionality is kept enabled on the demo websites.
If you happen to leave a comment on such demo website for testing purposes, we advice you to use example, imaginative data. There is no point of using real data on demo website. Even then, we periodically clean the created test comments and delete them all from the demo websites, keeping only those created by us for preview.

Support forum posts (support tickets and replies) Back to top

On our https://support.webmandesign.eu website we run a forum software to provide support services to our customers and product users. This website requires a user registration to create support tickets, write replies and participate in forums. We require users to provide only a username (could be imaginative, made-up) and email address.

When a user creates a support ticket or replies to a ticket (participates in the forum/creates a forum post), an IP address is also collected and stored in our database. Since 25th May 2018 we introduce functionality to anonymize IP addresses collected. Technically this means removing last octet of the IPv4 address (or last 80 bits in case of IPv6 address), which means we can only track approximate location, such as country or province. The IP anonymization is also being continuously applied on all previously stored data.

No IP addresses and user emails are displayed to other users or otherwise publicly shared. Only website admins have full control over those data.

Since 25th May 2018 we also remove any obsolete, previously optional user account data, such as:

  • user’s first and last name,
  • display name preference (currently it defaults to nickname, if provided, or username),
  • any online contact or social network contact such as a website address, AIM, Yahoo IM, Jabber or Google Talk user account,
  • biographical information.

Additional data such as registration and login time and number of logins will be stored for analytical and security reasons.

Gravatar profile pictures Back to top

As we collect user emails on our https://support.webmandesign.eu website, 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 forum post (or comment), your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.

Media Back to top

If you upload any images to our websites (mainly to https://support.webmandesign.eu), you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from such images.

Articles, pages and forum posts on our sites may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, other 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 tracing your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.

WordPress.com stats Back to top

For example, a site owner can see that a specific post has 285 views, but he/she cannot see which specific users/accounts viewed that post. Stats logs — containing visitor IP addresses and WordPress.com usernames (if available) — are retained by Automattic for 28 days and are used for the sole purpose of powering this feature.

Activity Tracked: Post and page views, video plays (if videos are hosted by WordPress.com), outbound link clicks, referring URLs and search engine terms, and country. When this module is enabled, Jetpack also tracks performance on each page load that includes the Javascript file used for tracking stats. This is exclusively for aggregate performance tracking across Jetpack sites in order to make sure that plugin and code is not causing performance issues. This includes the tracking of page load times and resource loading duration (image files, Javascript files, CSS files, etc.).

We are also honoring Do Not Track settings. What is Do Not Track?

How long we retain your data Back to top

If you leave a comment on non-demo website, 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.

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.

Any information submitted to our demo websites at https://themedemos.webmandesign.eu will be removed without prior notice. Demo websites only contain sample data and are only for our product preview purposes. We store no user data on those websites.

Our database at https://support.webmandesign.eu is periodically checked for registered user activity and user accounts with no activity (those, with no support ticket or reply created) are being removed, deleted without any prior notice. This is also to prevent any possibility of spam.
Any active user information is retained in the local database indefinitely for analytic purposes and for future export. Data is retained until requested or user has been deleted.

Security logs are retained for 180 days.


How we protect your data and what data breach procedures we have in place Back to top

  • Security software is run on our sites to test and monitor them for any suspicious activity.

In case of a data breach, system administrators will immediately go through affected users and will attempt to reset passwords if needed after informing the user.

If you have an account on any of our sites, 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 Back to top

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

Our sites are part of a network of sites that protect against distributed brute force attacks. To enable this protection, the IP address of visitors attempting to log into the site is shared with a service provided by ithemes.com. For privacy policy details, please see the iThemes Privacy Policy.

In connection with any merger, sale of company assets, or acquisition of all or a portion of our business by another company, or in the unlikely event that WebMan Design goes out of business or enters bankruptcy, user information would likely be one of the assets that is transferred or acquired by a third party. If any of these events were to happen, this Privacy Policy would continue to apply to your information and the party receiving your information may continue to use your information, but only consistent with this Privacy Policy.
