What personal data we collect and why we collect it

We try to minimize the data we collect on this site. However, we do collect personal data that you share with us such as name, email address, company, company website, and any social media account. In addition, we also collect transactional data, such as white paper downloads; and technical data, such as information about cookies. If you visit other sites we own, such as https://www.agencyspotter.com, data may be shared within our company’s systems to better serve our users.

Data is collected to improve our user experience on the site and to follow up on any active inquiries made by you.

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.

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.

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.

How long we retain your data

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.
