What personal data we collect and why we collect it

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 anonymized 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.

Media

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.

Contact forms

If you decide to contact us via the contact form on our website, we will collect and store your email address (provided when you contact us), as well as the IP you sent the information from and all the data that you send our way via the contact form itself. We will store the contact form you submit for at most 24 months for customer service purposes and to improve our service, but we will never use that information for marketing purposes.

Cookies

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.

Ranking Squad allows third-party ad servers or ad networks to serve advertisements within the Website. These third-party servers or networks use technology to send advertisements, directly to your browser. They automatically receive your IP address when this happens. They may also use other technologies (such as cookies, JavaScript, or Web Beacons) to measure the effectiveness of their advertisements and to personalize the advertising content you see.

Your visit means you agree with our website using cookies. When it comes to Google advertising, users may opt out of the use of their cookie to receive personalized advertising by visiting their page.

We also use affiliate partners who might set up cookies to remember your traffic patterns and serve you products based on your geographical location.

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.

These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracing your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.

Analytics

We also collect, for statistical and analytics purposes, data from your visit patterns on our website. Information such as pages you have visited, duration of your visit and more are collected during your visit and we use this data to measure the success of our articles, be able to provide you with content that you enjoy and provide our advertising partners with details regarding the reach of this website and number of visitors it receives, including the country or city of origin and some demographic details.

Who we share your data with

We share some of the data collected with our advertising partners, as stated above, but we will never share personal details with anybody. The shared data includes your location and internet protocol (IP address), as well as navigation patterns and preferences in order to better understand our website’s visitors and be able to provide better content and ads. We do not share data like your name or email address with anybody (unless – and there’s a very slim chance this will happen – required by law).

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 request that we erase any personal data we hold about you – or the comments themselves. 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.

How we protect information collected from you

We show great interest in confidentiality. Ranking Squad is a spam free zone. Also, we will never share your Personal Information or e-mail address to third parties without your consent. Any statistics that we might offer to our advertisement networks and partners does not include any personal identifying information about any individual user. We do our best efforts to protect the security of your personal information.

We might change, from time to time, the contents of this privacy policy, so make sure that you check this page often to make sure that you are up to date with our policy. If we make any changes, the date below will be modified to reflect that.
