Who we are
Our website address is: https://goodbyecitylife.com.
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. This helps us to detect spam.
We generally don’t allow for media uploads from our readers, but if you upload an image to the website, please avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS). Visitors to the website could and may download and extract location data from images on the website. This is true from all websites. There is no possible way this can be prevented.
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 should you leave another comment. Cookies last for one year.
If you visit our login page, 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.
Embedded content from other websites
Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behave in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.
Who we share your data with
If you interact with this website at a level other than reading articles, and if you request a password reset, your IP address will be included in the reset email. Typically you won’t have a password on this website, therefore your IP address would never be shared or passed through an email.
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 (unlikely we would allow this), 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.
