Who we are
My website address is: https://emilywrites.com. I’m a writer and editor for hire. Your privacy is important.
What personal data we collect and why we collect it
I may at some point accept comments on my blog posts. I do not currently allow comments on this website but, if I do, and visitors leave comments on the site, we will collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.
All third-party publications published on this website are copyright their respective publishers. They are included on this site only to provide samples of my work.
We have a contact form on this website. If you submit personal contact information, it will not be used for any purpose beyond contacting you in regards to your email submission. I do not sell personal data to any third-party.
If I decide to include comments on a blog post and 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 the visitor has visited the other website.
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.
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.
Your contact information
If you submit an email through our site, we may contact you in regard to your email and retain your contact information as is reasonably appropriate to do so.
