Privacy Policy

Who we are

My website address is: http://www.shinypony.com.

This is a simple site operated by one person, Cynthia Perry. Some, but not all, of the text below was suggested by WordPress and it all sounds very legal and whatnot. Please read on if you want more detail on what information might be collected and how it is used. If you hate legalese as much as I do, the basic truth boils down to this:

I have no evil designs on your data and no intentions of sharing it inappropriately.

What personal data is collected and why

Comments

When visitors leave comments on the site the data shown in the comments form is collected, 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 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.

Contact forms

Your name, email address and any message you transmit will be used to establish communication between you and myself, the website owner. Once communication is established, you need not use the form, but can email me directly.

Cookies

If you leave a comment on this 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 need more information about cookies and how they may be used by WordPress sites that use the Jetpack plugin by Automattic, their cookie policy is available here: https://automattic.com/cookies/

Email Subscriptions

If you sign up to receive new posts by email or sign up to receive new comments on a particular post by email, some information is collected and cookies set. The subscriptions are powered by the WordPress Jetpack plugin by Automattic. The Jetpack subscriptions privacy policy is available here: https://jetpack.com/support/subscriptions/#privacy

Who your data is shared with

No one.

How long your data is retained

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so I can recognize and approve any follow-up comments.

If using a contact form to inquire about a sale item, I will need to keep your name, email address and shipping address on file until any transaction we engage in is successfully concluded.

What rights you have over your data

If you have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data held about you. You may also request that any personal data held about you be erased.

Your contact information

Will not be disclosed without your permission or sold to third parties. It’s between you and me and my lip is zipped.
