Comments Policy

sparta-kick-this-is-my-blog

And my comments policy is simple: If you can’t say something nice, don’t say anything at all.

I reserve the right to moderate all comments on my blog.

Anything I deem to be Total Jerk behavior will be flagged as spam and tossed out into the cold dark nowhere. A second infraction will get your IP address blocked. This is not a drill, and I don’t do warnings or second chances.

Total Jerk behavior includes but is not limited to: racism, abusive language, sexism, outright nastiness, homophobic rants, shameless self-promotion, and pretty much anything that starts in anti- and ends in -ism.Β This is my site and those things don’t fly here.Β As the Comment God for my page I will smite you with mighty smitings and afflict your comments with blindness, that others may never see them. You are perfectly entitled to freedom of speech, just remember that I also have freedom of not-listening.

Total Jerk behavior does not include: constructive criticism, cuss words, snarky banter or sarcasm. I love sarcasm.

If you need to report abuse please use the contact form, above.

 

Privacy Policy

Our website address is: https://sewhitebooks.com.

What personal data we collect and why we collect it

By default WordPress does not collect any personal data about visitors, and only collects the data shown on the User Profile screen from registered users. 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.

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 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.

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 tracing your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.

Analytics

This website uses a Google Analytics plugin to analyze visitor behavior. This information includes type of platform used to view the website and length of stay. This information is never shared with any third parties. The Google privacy policy may be found here.

Who we share your data with

By default WordPress does not share any personal data with anyone.

How long we retain your data

Contact form entries are kept only until a response is completed, and then deleted. 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.
