Who we are

Rebecca Webb, owner of this blog – I’m Bec Webb (https://www.becwebb.com), and Etsy shop – Love Chopsy (https://www.etsy.com/uk/shop/LoveChopsy)

What personal data we collect and why we collect it

Comments

This website does not require you to leave any details in order to comment.  Therefore we do not collect, keep or store any info there.  However, for the sake of good practice the following info is relevant SHOULD I ever require info to comment (for example, should my website suffer many spam comments as a result of not needing to provide info before commenting):

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.

An anonymised string created from your email address (also called a hash) may be provided to the Gravatar service to see if you are using it. The Gravatar service privacy policy is available here: https://automattic.com/privacy/. After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.

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.

I would request however that you please refrain from attempting to upload any images to BecWebb.com.

Contact forms

BecWebb.com has one(1) contact form in my Wanna Work Together page.  Any messages received via the contact form, and any follow on messages as a result of a conversation taking place, will be deleted completely upon completion of a situation (no more than thirty(30) days), unless required to be kept for longer – for example for an ongoing or long-term project, or that under mutual agreement both parties decide to remain open to any future contact, and the retention of contact details (eg. name, email address, telephone number, business address) is therefore necessary.

The purpose of this form is for myself, Rebecca Webb, to be contacted by potential collaborators and businesses for work opportunities, and is not intended to be used by the general public.

For general public (my lovely readers) I can however be contacted on my Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/ImBecWebb, on Twitter https://twitter.com/ImBecWebb, or on Instagram https://www.instagram.com/imbecwebb/, and I welcome you to do so – I love chatting to my readers!

Cookies

BecWebb.com does not require you to enter any details in order to comment, nor does it require you to log in; set up an account; and edit or publish articles.  Therefore the following info is currently irrelevant.

“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.

BecWebb.com does, however, use a spam filter through JetPack Akismet.  This picks up any spam links in comments and holds them for deletion.

BecWebb.com utilizes Google Analytics, through JetPack, in order to get statistical insights on how the site is running, popular times the site is being used, how many visitors the site has etc.

BecWebb.com chose to activate the feature to anonymize IP addresses.  This means that the last part of your IP address string will be replaced with zero’s, ensuring no personal info is tracked.

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 tracing your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.

At present BecWebb.com embeds YouTube videos (https://policies.google.com/privacy?hl=en-GB&gl=uk), and links to many other websites including, but not limited to:  https://www.etsy.com/uk/shop/LoveChopsy, https://www.etsy.com/uk/legal/privacy/https://thehungryjpeg.com/privacy-policy/https://fontbundles.net/privacypolicy, Twitter widget https://twitter.com/en/privacy, Facebook widget https://www.facebook.com/full_data_use_policy, and links to retailers via third parties https://www.shareasale.com/w3c/policy.htmlhttps://www.awin.com/gb/legal/privacy-policyhttps://rakutenmarketing.com/en-uk/legal-notices/services-privacy-policyhttps://www.conversantmedia.com/legal/privacyhttps://www.shopstyle.com/privacy, site AdChoice adverts placed by JetPack on behalf of MediaNet https://www.media.net/en/privacy-policy.

To the best of my knowledge and research, all of these websites comply with, and uphold, the EU GDPR.  Rest assured, any other current, and any further, links to websites will be solely ones that comply to EU GDPR standards.  BecWebb.com would never knowingly compromise your personal and online safety.

Analytics

As above,

BecWebb.com utilizes Google Analytics, through JetPack, in order to get statistical information on how the site is running, popular times the site is being used, how many visitors the site has etc.

BecWebb.com chose to activate the feature to anonymize IP addresses.  This means that the last part of your IP address string will be replaced with zero’s, ensuring no personal info is tracked.

Who we share your data with

BecWebb.com does not personally or directly hold any personal data for you, unless you messaged via the contact form.  In which case any data does not get shared, it gets deleted after thirty(30) days, and is then no longer held by BecWebb.com.

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.

Any data held by any voluntary interaction between yourself and any third parties within BecWebb.com (for example if you clicked a link to a recommended product on Etsy, or through to a YouTube video) remains the sole responsibilty of that third party, who will have their own cookie and privacy policies.

Where possible, I have linked to any regularly used third party privacy policies above, under “Embedded content through other websites”.

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.  BecWebb.com uses JetPack Akismet to filter spam comments, by searching for suspicious links.

Your contact information

For privacy specific concerns you can email Rebecca Webb at legal@becwebb.com

Additional information

How we protect your data

BecWebb.com’s laptop and mobile device uses total internet security by Kaspersky.  On top of that BecWebb.com pays to have the site protected by JetPack Security (Your site’s files are regularly scanned for unauthorized or suspicious modifications that could compromise your security and data), Protect (Protects your site from traditional and distributed brute force login attacks), Akismet (anti-spam), and Vaultpress (site back-up).

What data breach procedures we have in place

BecWebb.com does not hold any direct personal data.

What third parties we receive data from

BecWebb.com partakes in affiliate marketing (see my affiliate disclosure here).  I therefore receive limited data from:  https://thehungryjpeg.com/privacy-policy/https://fontbundles.net/privacypolicyhttps://www.shareasale.com/w3c/policy.htmlhttps://www.awin.com/gb/legal/privacy-policyhttps://rakutenmarketing.com/en-uk/legal-notices/services-privacy-policyhttps://www.conversantmedia.com/legal/privacyhttps://www.shopstyle.com/privacy, site AdChoice adverts placed by JetPack on behalf of MediaNet https://www.media.net/en/privacy-policy.

The data I have access to is purely statistical and provides me no personal information such as names, email addresses, IP addresses etc.  The information I do have access to is just site visitor numbers (as in how many people have clicked a link I provided in a twenty four(24) hour period for example, and geographical location by country, and how much commission I may have earned (a percentage of the sale made).
