Privacy Policy

Effective as of 01/03/2024, for https://errisveliu.com.

Who We Are

Our website, Erris Veliu, is accessible at https://errisveliu.com. We are committed to protecting your privacy and handling your personal information transparently.

Data Collection and Use

Comments

When you leave comments on our site, we collect the data displayed in the comments form. This includes your name, email address, and the comment itself. To assist in spam detection, we also collect your IP address and browser user agent string.

An anonymized string (hash) created from your email address may be sent to the Gravatar service to verify if you are using it. The Gravatar service’s privacy policy is accessible at Automattic’s Privacy Policy. Upon approval of your comment, your profile picture becomes publicly visible in the context of your comment.

Media

If you upload images to the website, avoid including embedded location data (EXIF GPS). Other visitors can download and extract any location data from images on the website.

Cookies

If you leave a comment on our site, you can opt-in to save your name, email address, and website in cookies. These are for your convenience, so you don’t need to refill your details when leaving another comment. These cookies last for one year.

Visiting our login page triggers a temporary cookie to check if your browser accepts cookies, containing no personal data and discarded when you close your browser.

Logging in sets cookies to remember your login info and screen display choices. Login cookies last two days, and screen options cookies last a year. If you select “Remember Me,” your login persists for two weeks. Logging out removes these cookies.

Editing or publishing an article sets an additional cookie in your browser, indicating the post ID of the article you edited, expiring after 1 day.

Embedded Content from Other Websites

Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g., videos, images, articles). Such content from other websites behaves exactly as if the visitor has visited the other website, which may collect data about you, use cookies, and monitor your interaction with the embedded content.

Data Sharing

Your data is not shared with any third parties except in cases like a password reset request, where your IP address is included in the reset email.

Data Retention

Comments and their metadata are retained indefinitely to recognize and approve any follow-up comments. For registered users (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. Users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (username cannot be changed). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.

Your Rights

If you have an account on this site or have left comments, you can request an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you’ve provided. You can also request the deletion of any personal data we hold about you, excluding data we’re obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.

Where Your Data Is Sent

Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.
