Privacy Policy

Who we are

Our website address is: https://drawingsof.com/. It is based in Boston, MA in the United States and is run by L. Marshall.

What personal data we collect and why we collect it

Comments

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.

For spam detection, we use the Akismet automated anti-spam service which collects information about visitors who comment. The information we collect includes the commenter’s IP address, user agent, and referrer (along with other information directly provided by the commenter such as their name, username, email address, and the comment itself). The Akismet privacy policy is found here: https://akismet.com/privacy/

Media

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.

Contact forms

This site uses a third party platform, Ninja Forms, to contact the author. If you choose to fill out a contact form to reach Lillie, the form will collect the email address you enter and your message. This information will be deleted after a month and will not be sold or shared. Full Ninja Forms privacy policy is here: https://ninjaforms.com/privacy-policy/

Subscriptions

If you sign up for my newsletter (administered through Mailchimp) the service will store some of your information, including your email address, IP address and certain information about the links you click within the emails we send you, on a Mailchimp server. Neither I nor Mailchimp will ever sell your email address or share it with any other party, unless we are legally compelled to do so.

If you contact Mailchimp directly regarding your subscription to our newsletter, Mailchimp may contact you directly; otherwise, Mailchimp will never contact you. Only authorized Mailchimp employees have access to our subscriber list. You are always free to unsubscribe from our newsletter and can do so through a link on the email newsletters you have received, or by contacting us directly. The Mailchimp privacy policy can be found here : https://mailchimp.com/legal/privacy/ .

This site uses the third-party plugin, Hustle, to collect email subscriptions from visitors who choose to enter their information. When visitors or users submit a form or view a module, we capture the IP Address for analysis purposes. We also capture the email address and first name in the form fields. When visitors or users submit a form or view a module we retain the data for 30 days.

Cookies

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 will last for one year.

If you visit our login page, we will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.

When you log in, we will also set up several cookies to save your login information and your screen display choices. Login cookies last for two days, and screen options cookies last for a year. If you select “Remember Me”, your login will persist for two weeks. If you log out of your account, the login cookies will be removed.

If you edit or publish an article, an additional cookie will be saved in your browser. This cookie includes no personal data and simply indicates the post ID of the article you just edited. It expires after 1 day.

By default, the third party service, Hustle, which we use for email subscription sign-ups, uses cookies to count how many times each module is visualized. Cookies might be used to handle other features such as display settings, used when a module should not be displayed for a certain time, whether the user commented before, whether the user has subscribed, among others, if their related settings are enabled.

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.

These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracking your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.

This site uses Google Analytic cookies to gather and display information relating to:

  • device type (e.g. mobile, computer, tablet)
  • operating system
  • browser type

Who we share your data with

Voluntarily shared email addresses are kept on Hustle, MailChimp, and NinjaForms platforms as explained in other sections.

How long we retain your data

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are 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). 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.

Where we send your data

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