Privacy Policy

Last Updated August 17, 2019

Thank you for choosing to be part of our community at Evermore Fans (part of The Lighthouse Information Network LLC). We are committed to protecting your personal information and your right to privacy. If you have any questions or concerns about our policy, or our practices with regards to your personal information, please contact us at nicole@evermorefans.com.

What information do we collect? 

There are two types of information we collect: information you provide to us, and information that is collected automatically. 

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.

Information You Provide

We collect information that you provide, such as your name, account information, and any information you provide in comments or forums. We collect information when you participate in activities on our service (including posting in online forums, entering competitions, or contacting us). The personal information we gather depends on how you interact with the site and what you use. 

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.

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.

Information Automatically Collected

We automatically collect certain information when you visit, use or navigate the website. This information does not reveal your identity specifically but may include device and usage information, such as your IP address, browser, device, operating system, language preferences, referring URLs, device name, country, location and information about how you use our service.

We collect information through cookies and other technologies in use in our analytics, advertising and affiliate programs. 

How do we use your information? 

We use your information to provide the best possible service to you. We use the information to facilitate account creation and logon processes, to send you marketing materials and communications, to post testimonials to the site, to deliver advertising, to administer contests and request feedback. We also use information to manage user accounts, enable user-to-user communication, respond to user inquiries and for other business purposes. 

We do not sell your information. We provide some information to third-party providers who provide services on our behalf. This includes affiliates, advertisers, and analytics tracking providers. 

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.
