Who we are
Blank Page Down, http://www.blankpagedown.com, is an independently run writing blog, authored and administered by Gabriel Karandysovsky.
Your personal data
Blank Page Down stores personal data through user’s interactions with the website and use of contact forms, comments, cookies, analytics and third party embeds.
By default, WordPress does not collect any personal data about visitors, and only collects the data shown on the User Profile screen from registered users. Some plugins may collect personal data, however, their use is moderated by Blank Page Down’s moderator and never disclosed.
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.
Blank Page Down uses a contact form plugin, which captures personal data such as name and personal email and stores it indefinitely for newsletter mailing purposes. None of the information submitted by the user is used for marketing or transactional purposes.
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. Should 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.
Who we share your data with
Blank Page Down does NOT share your personal data with any third party entity, including partners, cloud-based services, payment processors, and third party service providers.
By default, WordPress does not share any personal data with anyone.
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.
Blank Page Down does not disclose personal data and is in compliance with global GDPR policy and EU data protection laws. Please signal any detected breach thereof, compromise in confidentiality or leak of personal information without delay to the site’s owner and administrator(s).
