Who we are
I am Paul R. Jorgensen (a.k.a. Tokyo Gringo). My website address is: http://www.prjorgensen.com. I represent no one other than myself here.
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.
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.
By default my WordPress site does not collect any analytics data other than generic non-personally identifiable data related to geography by country, sources of referral (Twitter, Facebook, another web site, etc.).
Who we share your data with
No one intentionally.
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.
For received webmentions, pingbacks and trackbacks, such as responding to a post or article, this site stores information retrieved from the source in order to provide a richer comment. Items such as author name and image, summary of the text, etc may be stored if present in the source and are solely to provide richer comments. We will remove any of this on request.
Syndication Links, which are links to the same content on other sites, may be displayed on comments, but only if supplied by the submitter or if your comment was generated by webmention, if they appear on your site.
Webmentions are an explicit feature of your content management system: by sending a webmention to the webmention endpoint of this website, you request the server to take notice of that referral and process it. As long as public content is concerned (i.e. you are not sending a private webmention), such use of this website’s webmention endpoint implies that you are aware of it being published.
You can at any time request the removal of one or all webmentions originating from your website.
Location and weather data is optionally stored for all posts, attachments, and comments. Location data is extracted from uploaded images along with other metadata. This data can be removed prior to uploading if you do not wish this to be stored. There are options to display this information or hide it.
For responses to URLs, such as responding to a post or article, this site allows the storage of data around the post/article in order to generate a rich citation. Items such as author name and image, summary of the text, embed provided by third-party site, etc may be stored and are solely to provide this context. We will remove any of this on request.
Users can optionally add additional information to their profile. As this is part of your user profile you have control of this information and can remove it at your discretion.
Incoming Webmentions are handled as a request to process personal data that you make available by explicitly providing metadata in your website’s markup.
An incoming Webmention request is by design a request for publishing a comment from elsewhere on the web; this is what the protocol was designed for and why it is active on your website.
The Webmention plugin processes the following data (if available):
- Your name
- The profile picture from your website
- The URL of your website
- Personal information you include in your post
