1. What personal data we collect and why we collect it

1.1 Contact forms, Emails and Direct Messages

If you contact us using the contact form or via any email address or Direct Messaging system related to Spots Bordeaux and its staff, records of this communication will normally be kept for up to 6 months for practical reasons. Depending on the nature of this communication, records may in some cases be stored indefinitely for legal or administrative reasons.

1.2 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 anonymised 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. If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognise 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. Please note that comments may be checked through an automated, external, spam detection service.
