Who we are
Our website address is: http://www.metabolomix.com. This is an academic blog.
What personal data we collect and why we collect it
The data that is being collected by this web site is limited to what WordPress and the underlying Linux system usually stores in their log and configuration files. We make no efforts to analyze this data beyond looking at general access statistics and identifying security and spam issues.
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.
Information entered into contact forms shall be forwarded to the admin’s personal mail. It may also be stored in the log files, which are regularly and automatically purged following the default WordPress and Linux settings.
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.
Who we share your data with
We do not share or sell any data. We also do not make any explicit efforts to collect data.
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 (actually – this is the standard legal text from WordPress – at present, I believe that if you would really ask us to delete any personal data, we would probably not even have any personal data on our system – but we would of course make every effort to make sure that even the faintest trace is gone).
Where we send your data
Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.
Your contact information
We do not collect any personal information.
How we protect your data
By not even storing any of your data – other than your comments of course, which we assume are meant to be public anyway.
What data breach procedures we have in place
We use standard Linux spam and security tools.
What third parties we receive data from
What automated decision making and/or profiling we do with user data
Industry regulatory disclosure requirements
Does not apply.
