What personal data we collect and why we collect it
Like many other Web sites, SerendipitousBooks.com makes use of log files. These files merely logs visitors to the site – usually a standard procedure for hosting companies and a part of hosting services’s analytics. The information inside the log files includes internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, Internet Service Provider (ISP), date/time stamp, referring/exit pages, and possibly the number of clicks. This information is used to analyze trends, administer the site, track user’s movement around the site, and gather demographic information. IP addresses, and other such information are not linked to any information that is personally identifiable.
Cookies and Web Beacons
Some cookies used on this site are temporary cookies to determine if your browser accepts cookies. These contain no personal data and are discarded when you close your browser.
Contact forms and Comments
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 may last for up to one year.
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.
If you fill out our contact form, basic information is collected and intended to be stored only for the time of our correspondence.
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.
Who we share your data with and How long we retain your data
Some browser and visitor data is collected by our analytics software within WordPress site, our host (third party), email software (third party), PayPal (third party), Amazon (third party) among other affiliates (all third parties), and sometimes Google Analytics (third party). We do not store personal data unless you request it by submitting it for emails, information, or similar correspondence. You can email us at the link above to request removal of any personal data you have previously shared with us.
If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata MAY or MAY NOT be 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).
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, if any, 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. All contact form information submitted goes directly to the website administrators. All email sign up information goes to our email automation software and stored by us as administrators.
Website administrators can also see and edit some of this information, and can help get any data deleted that you request.
