WHAT PERSONAL DATA WE COLLECT AND WHY WE COLLECT IT
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 upload images to the website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the website.
We collect and receive personal data from you if you use this Website. Provision of personal data is voluntary. The personal data that we collect may include:
data provided by the user during account registration, including, without limitation, personal details, user name and email address;
other personal data reasonably requested by BlakeWard.com
If you provide personal data to us about any person other than yourself, you must ensure that they understand how their personal data will be used and that you are authorised to disclose it to us, and to consent to its use on their behalf, before doing so.

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 WE TREAT YOUR DATA
HOW LONG WE RETAIN YOUR DATA
If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognise 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 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.
Under the Data Protection Act 1998 and other applicable law, you may request to receive, update and correct personal data that we collect about you.
WHERE WE SEND YOUR DATA
Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.
