REGINA MAGAZINE PRIVACY POLICY

We at Regina Magazine respect, and are committed to protecting, your privacy. That is why we have adopted this Privacy Policy. Our Privacy Policy lets you know how your personal information is processed and used. We promise that we will take steps to use your personal information only in ways that are compatible with this Privacy Policy.

What personal data we collect and why we collect it

Comments

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.

What will we do with the information we collect?

Regina Magazine will not share, sell, or rent individual personal information with any unaffiliated third party without your advance permission, or unless ordered by a court of law. We will use your personal information to help personalize your experience, improve our website, and periodically contact you regarding news, updates, offers and other correspondence relevant to Regina Magazine. Regina Magazine uses reasonable precautions to keep the information disclosed to us secure. However, we are not responsible for any breach of security, or for any actions of any third parties that receive the information.

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.

What are cookies?

From time to time, Regina Magazine may send a cookie to your computer. A cookie is a small piece of data that is sent to your Internet browser from a Web server and stored in your computer's hard drive. A cookie cannot read data off of your computer hard disk, or read cookie files created by other websites. We use cookies to identify which areas of our website you have visited, so the next time you visit, those pages may be readily accessible, and re-entry of data may be facilitated. You can choose whether to accept cookies by changing the settings of your Internet browser. You can set your browser to refuse all cookies, or allow your browser to show you when a cookie is being sent. Please note that limiting the acceptance of cookies may affect your experience at our website, and some features may not work as intended.

How long we retain your data

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 about security?

We gather your sensitive personal information, including email address, on our secure server using SSL technology. This information is encrypted and processed through our payment gateway, and is maintained on a secure database that is not connected to the Internet. After a transaction is complete, your private information will not be stored on our servers.

Your consent to this Agreement.

By using the Regina Magazine website, you consent to the collection and use of information by Regina Magazine as specified above. If we decide to change our Privacy Policy, we will post those changes on this page, so that you are always aware of what information we collect, how we use it, and under what circumstances we disclose it.

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.
