Who I am
Hey there, my name is Ford and I alone manage LawzConnected; the website address being: https://lawzconnected.com
When visitors leave comments on the site LawzConnected collects 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.
LawzConnected does use a contact form on the Contact page. Anything put into the contact form only gets sent to me alone. I do not use the information people send me for anything other than the purpose of answering their questions or comments.
If you leave a comment on LawzConnected, 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.
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 LawzConnected can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.
For users that register on the website (if any), LawzConnected also stores 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). I can also see and edit that information.
What rights you have over your data
If you have an account on LawzConnected, or have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data LawzConnected holds about you, including any data you have provided it. You can also request that I erase any personal data I hold about you. This does not include any data I am obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.
Plugins: WP Smush
Smush sends images to the WPMU DEV servers to optimize them for web use. This includes the transfer of EXIF data. The EXIF data will either be stripped or returned as it is. It is not stored on the WPMU DEV servers.
Smush uses the Stackpath Content Delivery Network (CDN). Stackpath may store web log information of site visitors, including IPs, UA, referrer, Location and ISP info of site visitors for 7 days. Files and images served by the CDN may be stored and served from countries other than your own.
Smush uses a third-party email service (Drip) to send informational emails to the site administrator. The administrator’s email address is sent to Drip and a cookie is set by the service. Only administrator information is collected by Drip.
