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.

An anonymized 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.

Contact forms

If you submit a contact form, the information you enter into the form is saved indefinitely for our records. This allows us to read and reply to contact form submissions, and keep an archive of user-submitted contact forms for future reference.

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 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.

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.

Analytics

We use the Google Analytics service to track demographics data such as our users’ geographical location, operating system, browser, internet service provider, age, gender, language, etc. The service is also used to the amount of traffic each page on our site is getting, user flow through the pages of the site and bounce rate.

Advertising

We use the Google AdSense service to display advertisements. It stores third-party cookies that allow us to display promotional materials to you on other sites you visit across the internet. We may share information about your behavior on the site with third parties (including operators of third-party websites and/or social networking sites) in order to show you targeted advertisements and other content that has been customized for you.

Magic for Miles participates in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for websites to earn fees by advertising and linking to products on amazon.com. If you choose to click these links, then purchase products on amazon.com, Magic for Miles will earn a commission for that referral, and Amazon’s records will reflect that you were referred from our website to theirs before purchasing products.

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.

Google Analytics and AdSense data is stored indefinitely for our records and to inform future marketing and advertising efforts.

Where we send your data

Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service. Your data may also be sent to the Google Analytics service.

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.
