When visitors leave comments on the site, Sonomaso collects 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.

If you leave a comment on the 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, Sonomaso 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.

Sonomaso uses Google Analytics.
Your analytics data is only viewed by Sonomaso. We do not share with third parties.
If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so Sonomaso can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.
For users that register on the 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.
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.
Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.
If your contact information is supplied, it is only retained indefinitely on secure servers. You can also request that we erase any contact information about you.
The Sonomaso website uses an SSL certificate. Our hosting company is Media Temple. Your data is safe with Media Temple. All hosting servers are under their direct control at all times in secure, state-of-the-art East and West Coast US data centres. Both centres are certified Tier 3+, meaning at least 99.99% network uptime guaranteed. They’re also connected to each other directly by a redundant, low-latency private fiber connection, and staffed 24/7/365 with HP-certified technicians and armed security.
Sonomaso informs individuals about any personal data breaches where there is a high risk to the individuals’ rights and freedoms. In such a situation, individuals will be informed without undue delay. The communication will use clear and plain language and contain, as a minimum, the following information: A description of the nature of the breach; The name and contact details of the data protection officer or other contact point; A description of the likely consequences of the breach; and A description of the measures taken or proposed to be taken by the controller to address the breach, including, where appropriate, measures to mitigate its possible adverse effects.
If Sonomaso receives data from third parties like Google Analytics, Sonomaso handles this in the same way as data we have collected.
