An anonymous string created from your email address (also called a hash) can be provided to the Gravatar service to see if you are using it.

After approval of your comment, your profile image is visible to the public in the context of your comment.

This data will only be used for communication with the user.

Cookies

If you leave a comment on our site you can choose to save your name, email address and website in cookies. This is for your convenience, so you don’t have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for a period of one year.

If you have an account and log in to this site, we will set a temporary cookie to determine whether your browser accepts cookies. This cookie does not contain any personal data and is deleted when you close your browser.

When you log in, we will also set a number of cookies to store your login information and screen display options. Login cookies last for two days, and display options cookies last for one year. If you select “Remember me”, your login will last for two weeks. If you log out of your account, your login cookies will be deleted.

If you edit or publish an article an additional cookie will be stored in your browser. This cookie does not include personal data and simply indicates the ID of the article you have 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 exactly the same way as if the visitor had visited the other website.

These sites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional tracking from third parties, 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 site.

Analytics

We use web analytics tools to help us better understand how users use our website. All data we collect through such services is completely anonymous.

The analytics tool we use is Google Analytics. For more information about the privacy policy of this tool you can visit: https://policies.google.com/privacy?hl=es-es

With whom we share your data

We do not share your data with third parties, except for our partners who help us to provide any of the services you contract with us.

In this case, you agree that we may occasionally share your data with third parties for the purpose of negotiating our services and during or after the start of our professional collaboration.

How long do we keep your data

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so that we can recognise and approve successive comments automatically rather than keeping them in a moderation queue.

From users who register on our site (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can view, edit or delete their personal information at any time (except that they cannot change their username). Site administrators can also view and edit that information.

We retain this data until the date specified in the rules or until you request its deletion.

For such a request you can write to: hola@speckledpenguin.com

What rights do you have over your data

If you have an account or have left comments on this website, you can request to receive an export file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we delete any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data that we are obliged to retain for administrative, legal or security purposes.

Where we send your data

Visitors’ comments may be checked by an automatic spam detection service. In addition, we have an encrypted and protected mail service where all emails and communications you send to us are stored.

How we protect your data

All our web traffic is encrypted via SSL certificate (secure connection) and we use secure passwords for access.

What procedures do we use against data breaches

Our web storage system is provided by a specialised company, namely Loading.es.

Loading.es protects its customers’ data through its own security systems (in this case our data, and therefore also yours), although it cannot guarantee 100% that there will never be a personal data breach. In the event that such a breach is detected we will be contacted and if we deem it appropriate, we will contact you.

Industry regulatory disclosure requirements

We compromise not to sell confidential and/or strategic information about your industry, business or company before, during or after our professional relationship.

You, as a user of the website, also agree not to disclose confidential information about us before, during or after you have collaborated with us professionally.
