Who we are
Our website address is: https://marphil.us.
What personal data we collect and why we collect it
If you fill out an lead form, or an order form, we’ll naturally collect:
- First Name
- Last Name
- Email Address
- Usually your phone number
- Address if we have to ship something
However, that information is only stored in our ecommerce system as needed – else it is discarded, and, as we use WordPress, you have the ability to request those deletions with wordpress’s built in GDPR handling. Suffice to say, unless we NEED to collect information from you, we wont 🙂
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.
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.
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 may use service such as Google Analytics, Google Tag Manager, and services like HotJar or Funnelytics.io to see how well our sites are performing. These data analytic programs are not designed to track your PERSONAL information unless we chose to do so – and by default, we don’t. We really just like to know how people are:
- Visiting our page (what device, browser, time of day)
- Staying on our page (how long)
- What they click on on our page (links clicked)
- And how our media is doing (how long you watch videos)
Other than this, we don’t use much else for analytics 🙂
Who we share your data with
Nope, no one – we don’t have a reason to. Google may want to store the analytic data on their servers, which is their right, but we don’t make that data available to any third party outside of the servers that host it.
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.
Your contact information
How we protect your data
We don’t share your data with anyone – even without your permission. We have no need to 🙂
What data breach procedures we have in place
If there is a breach, we report it.
If there is a breach, we fix it.
If there is a breach, we make it right 🙂
Simply put, anytime there is a breach (heaven forbid!), we’ll notify our users of the issue, work with the developers of the plugins/code/services that caused the issue to fix/isolate the problem, and/or change framework such that this issue doesn’t happen again. If the breach is a mandatory reporter, we’ll make sure we notify all local enforcement agencies – we’ll always notify our customers, regardless.
What third parties we receive data from
Social media sites, such as Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, may occasionally send us traffic – which means, we may occasionally be privy to some of your sensitive information – however, unless you opt into any of our forms, that information isn’t utilized on this site.
What automated decision making and/or profiling we do with user data
We don’t really have a need for this – I know it’s a common concern of most people who are visiting websites but deep analytics, data mining, that’s not our thing. If you like our services, great, if not, well great! We’ll always strive to do better, and we don’t need some technological gimmick to help us ‘mine’ for new users.
Industry regulatory disclosure requirements
None – yep, none 🙂 The great thing behind being a consultant is that we do everything we can to obey the law, rules, and requirements of our clients. And, we are not regulated by any major committee due to, well, any reason 🙂
