Privacy policy

At Life Rewilded, we want to be transparent about our privacy policies.  This privacy policy sets out how Life Rewilded uses and protects any information that you give us when you use this website.

Life Rewilded is committed to ensuring that your privacy is protected.  Should we ask you to provide certain information by which you can be identified when using this website, then you can be assured that it will only be used in accordance with this privacy statement.

What we collect

When you leave a blog post comment Life Rewilded collects the following information:

  • the data shown in the comments form,
  • 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.

What we do with the information we gather

When you leave a blog post comment we require your name so that Life Rewilded and other users of the site are able to identify you.  You do not have to use your own name or your full name in the comment section if you do not wish to.

We require your email address to be able to notify you if someone has replied to your comment.  Your email address is used for no other purpose, and Life Rewilded will never use your email address for marketing purposes or share, lease or sell your email address to any third parties.

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.

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

Security

We are committed to ensuring that your information is secure. In order to prevent unauthorised access or disclosure, we have put in place suitable physical and electronic procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect online.
