Who we are
Our website address is: https://booksby.us.
What personal data we collect (very little)
and why we collect it
When visitors leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form, plus the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.
If you upload images to ANY website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS). Visitors to ANY website can download and extract the image location data from within the images you put on the website.
If you fill out a contact form, we must collect your contact information, would you not think? We do not give it to anybody.
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
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 you the visitor actually visited that other website.
Who we share your data with, and
How long we retain your data
If you leave a comment, that comment and its metadata (who wrote it and when) 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 (if any) who register on our website, we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. This is essential to operating a store. Even as a guest, you have no option but to give us an address (digital or real) to which our products will ship. Payment services likewise gather essential information about you in order to process the sale. 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, taxes, or security purposes.
Where we send your data
Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.
