Who we are
Personal data that we collect and why we collect it.
We keep track of each visitor on our server. We collect visitor’s device type, browser agent, IP address, and requested page/posts on our site. These details keep only to prevent spammers, attackers, and malicious activities. We server keep these access logs for 30 days and then automatically purge.
When the visitors leave a comment on our site, we collect the comment form requested details (name, email address mandate, and your website optional). Also, we track the commenter’s IP address, browser user agent, and device type to prevent spammers.
We strictly do not allow anyone else (except admins) to upload media. Therefore, you are not able to upload media to our site.
When you are using the site contact form, we collect only what you have submitted via the contact forms. We use your email address only for contacting you. We never use it for any other purpose. You may receive a follow-up replay subsequently.
When you leave a comment on the site, you may opt-in to saving your name, email address on our site, and we place a website in cookies on your device. We do these 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.
Embedded content from other websites.
Articles on SucculentPlantGuru.com may include embedded content from other sites (e.g., YouTube Video, Facebook Status, video, etc.). These 3rd party sites’ embedded content from other websites behaves in the same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.
These 3rd party sites may collect data about you, use web cookies, embed additional third-party tracking codes, and track your interaction with that embedded content (even if you have an account and are already logged in on that 3rd party site). For instance, an embedded Facebook post. If you like that post, Facebook will track it.
