Who we are
Our website address is: https://prosperontheweb.com/blog.
What personal data we collect and why we collect it
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.
Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.
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.
Forms and Newsletters
We don’t currently use any WordPress contact forms. Our Contact Us links activate your email program so you can see what information you send to us. We save emails on our internal servers, not on the website, for keeping track of our communication with you.
We use an email service, currently Constant Contact, to send Prosper news, stories and offers. Your email and the history of newsletters received and viewed is stored on their site. You may unsubscribe from newsletters at any time using your Unsubscribe link in newsletters you have received. (Note that if you receive a newsletter forwarded from someone else, clicking Unsubscribe removes them, not you, from our list.)
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 have an account and you log in to this site, 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.
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.
We use Google Analytics to find out how users navigate our website. Google replaces specific user IP addresses with an ID code so that we do not view personally identifiable information. Google provides information on pages visited, city, region and country of the visitor, and search terms used in the site search. We use this information to judge the effectiveness of the website.
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.
How we protect your data
We have made our servers as secure as we know how. We secure our WordPress blogs with the WordFence security plugin to prevent hackers from accessing the sites. We use Akismet spam protection to keep spam comments off our site.
What data breach procedures we have in place
If we discover a data breach involving your data, we will do our best to notify you if we have your email address on file.
