Privacy Policy

Blogs are usually created through core tools, like WordPress, extended by lots of 3rd party plugins, offered by several distributors. If someone says a Blog is a safe place to store sensitive data, this one is either lying or have a really good budget.

IMPORTANT NOTE: We do our best to ensure our 3rd party providers take good care of your data, but we cannot guarantee anything, and if you consider the data you post here somehow sensitive (like your name, e-mail address or profile information, content of posts, etc) we strongly advise you not to fill this info here (we are cool with pseudonyms and purposed e-mail addresses, as long as you don’t use it to commit any abuse). If you consider your navigation and/or browser information sensitive, we recommend you to ensure they won’t be provided in your browser settings. If you consider your IP Address sensitive, we recommend you to use a proxy or VPN service (we reserve the right to block it, though, if the service provider doesn’t make you legally accountable for your actions).

Who we are

Our website address is: https://blog.bruno.today.

What personal data we collect and why we collect it

Comments

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.

Contact forms

Once you fill a contact form, we can contact you back if we want to, and we can cite you in a post, especially. Unless you give us explicit authorization, we will not mention your name and/or e-mail address. If you want us to omit some other information, you can choose between (a) not providing the information, (b) hide the information with asterisks (*) or other characters and/or use pseudonyms in case of people or company names, or (c) explicit tell us what information not to publish.

All requests within the contact message on how to treat the message’s content should be handled will be respected.

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 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.

NOTE: We also collect analytics and social data, through 3rd party services, that may or may not be stored through cookies. More details about them can be found in “Analytics and Social” section of this policy.

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.

Analytics and Social

We use 3rd party analytics services and social media integration services, whose use of your data we cannot control. We use WordPress, Google Tag Manager, Google Analytics, Facebook Analytics and Social Plugins, Twitter and LinkedIn integration, and reserve the right to use these and other platforms for this kind of integration and analytics data to the extent we need to understand our visitors.

This kind of use is a very common practice among websites and blogs. Some of these platforms may collect information about your interest to direct advertising, and most of them offer you ways to opt-out. Also, there is a plenty of browser settings, extensions and other methods to limit and/or stop tracking if you want to – just google it (or DuckDuckGo it if you are really concerned about privacy)!!

You can check each of these services’ websites to learn more about what kind of data can be collected through them and how this data is handled by them. Here some examples of data we might collect from you:

  • Reading behavior (how fast do you scroll through a post’s text), to understand whether our readers are mostly reading the post or skimming through and looking for something specific.
  • E-mail address, name and other information about your account, when logged in. We use this information in hope of fighting spammers who create fake accounts, and also to exclude staff access from our statistics.
  • The time you spend on each page/post. We use this to understand what people are enjoying the most and we hope it will helps us to create great content for you.

Who we share your data with

We do not share data with any 3rd party, unless for the 3rd party services we use in our blog.

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

We take care of your information as much as possible, and will not deliberately publish, leak, or provide someone else with them if you use the appropriate means to sen them to us. However, information of your profile or contents of comments are publicly posted by our system in an automatic way and we may have no control of this information.

Additional information

How we protect your data

We do standard security practices to the extent our budged supports. Sensitive data like your password is encrypted in our databases. Our databases are protected through a login/password procedure, and also a firewall rule that allows it to be accessed only from our servers where this WordPress installation is hosted. We have also chosen trustworthy data center service providers (to our best knowledge).

What data breach procedures we have in place

As this website is free, low budget, and contains no information that we consider sensitive, all we can do in the case of a data breach is inform and apologize, fix the problem in the case of a security issue that can be fixed through an available software update/upgrade or warn about the issue if an immediate fix is not available, and do our best to prevent from happening again.
