Who we are
Our website address is: https://theganeys.com.
What personal data we collect and why we collect it
We don’t allow comments on our website.
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 should choose to provide us with personal information by filling out a contact form and submitting it to us through the site – we will use that information to respond to your message and to help us get the information you have requested. The Ganeys does not collect personal information for commercial marketing or distribution to any private organizations.
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.
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.
We use Google Analytics to track traffic to our website. We don’t have personal data within that, however, we can see how long users spend on the site, what pages of the site they have visited, and where they exited the site. Sometimes, we can also see what someone searched to land on our site. Learn more about Google Analytics here: https://analytics.google.com/analytics/web/. We retain data from Google Analytics for 26 months.
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.
Where we send your data
Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.
