Privacy Policy

WHO WE ARE

Living Porpoisefully, LLC has created this privacy statement in order to demonstrate our firm commitment to privacy. The following discloses the information gathering and dissemination practices for this website.

Our website address is: https://livingporpoisefully.com.

WHAT PERSONAL DATA WE COLLECT AND WHY WE COLLECT IT

When visitors choose to sign up for our email list, we ask for their email address, first name, and organization, school or group so that we may better create educational and craft activities for the kids they interact with in their setting.

Subscribers will occasionally receive notifications of new blog posts, important changes to the website, new products, and special offers from Living Porpoisefully that we think you’ll find valuable.

If you would like to opt-out from receiving Living Porpoisefully emails, please contact us or follow the unsubscribe instructions in each email.

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.

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.

This site contains links to other sites. Living Porpoisefully is not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of such websites.

Analytics

Google Analytics are used on this website. Analytics are resources used to gather pieces of information about the traffic to this website. These pieces of information can tell a website owner how visitors move through the site. Website owners then use this data to make improvements to their website to increase a visitor’s positive experience.

This information is collected anonymously. Using Analytics, first-party cookies collect visitor data, such internet protocol (IP) addresses, browsers and operating systems; however, it does not identify any individual. This process occurs because cookies automatically send a file to a computer’s hard drive that stores data, like the time of day a visitor came to this site, first-time or repeat visitors and what website the visitor was on just prior to reaching this site. A website owner can review this data in reports that inform the owner if the website is performing at an optimal level or if updates need to be made.

If you would like to opt out of Google Analytics, you may do so without interrupting how you are able to view this website.

In general, our service automatically gathers certain usage information like the numbers and frequency of visitors to LivingPorpoisefully.com and its areas, very much like television ratings that tell the networks how many people tuned in to a program. We only use such data in the aggregate. This collective data helps us determine how much our customers use parts of the site, so we can improve our site to assure that it is as appealing as we can make it for as many of you as possible. For example, LivingPorpoisefully.com uses a technology nicknamed “cookies” that tells us how and when pages in our site are visited, and by how many people. LivingPorpoisefully.com cookies do not collect personally identifiable information, and we do not combine information collected through cookies with other personally identifiable information to tell us who you are or even what your screen name or e-mail address is. We also may provide statistical “ratings” information, never information about you personally, to our LivingPorpoisefully.com partners about how our members, collectively, use LivingPorpoisefully.com. We do this so they, too, can understand how much people use their areas and our site in order for them to provide you with the best possible web experience.

Children

LivingPorpoisefully.com takes special care to protect the safety and privacy of young people using our services. We do not specifically collect information about children and believe that children should get their parents’ consent before giving out any personal information. We encourage you to participate in your child’s experience in cyberspace and to review important safety tips before your child explores the Internet. LivingPorpoisefully.com also recommends that parents use web filtering technology to supervise their kids’ access to the Web. 

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.
