Doug Walker (“us”, “we”, or “our”) is the sole operator of https://www.walkerofbass.com (the “Site”). This page informs you of our policies regarding the collection, use and disclosure of Personal Information we receive from users of the Site.

We use your Personal Information only for improving the Site. By using the Site, you agree to the collections and use of Personal Information in accordance with this policy.

Information Collection and Use

While using our Site, we may ask you to provide us with certain information considered to be personally identifiable. Personally identifiable information may include, but is not limited to, your name and email address (“Personal Information” or “Personal Data”).

What Personal Information 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.

Contact Forms

If you use the contact form to email us, your name, email address, and any other information you opt to include is used the same way as if you sent us an email directly from your email client. Your information is kept private and never sold or shared.

Email Notifications Subscriptions

Our Email Notifications subscription list is hosted by the third-party service MailChimp.com. The MailChimp service privacy policy is available here: https://mailchimp.com/legal/privacy/.

Cookies

If you leave a comment on our site you may opt-in to saving your name and email address 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.

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 Personal 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.

YouTube and Vimeo are two examples of “other websites” from which embedded content appears.

Analytics / Log Data

Like many site operators, we collect information that your browser sends whenever you visit our Site (“Log Data”). This Log Data may include information such as your computer’s Internet Protocol (“IP”) address, browser type, browser version, the pages of our Site that you visit, the time and date of your visit, the time spent on those pages and other statistics. Our intentions with this collection is never to identify individuals, but to generally understand how people are using the Site in order to improve the Site’s content and functionality.

How long we retain your Personal 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 Personal 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.

Security

The security of your Personal Information is important to us, but remember that no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure. While we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your Personal Information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.

Third-Parties associated with the Site

We use Google Analytics for visitor statistics. We embed videos from YouTube and Vimeo, and some audio playlists from Spotify. We manage our Email Notification subscriptions through MailChimp. We occasionally provide hyperlinks to external websites.

Changes To This Privacy Policy

This Privacy Policy is effective as of (add date) and will remain in effect except with respect to any changes in its provisions in the future, which will be in effect immediately after being posted on this page. We reserve the right to update or change our Privacy Policy at any time and you should check this Privacy Policy periodically. Your continued use of the Service after we post any modifications to the Privacy Policy on this page will constitute your acknowledgment of the modifications and your consent to abide and be bound by the modified Privacy Policy. If we make any material changes to this Privacy Policy, we will notify you either through the email address you have provided us, or by placing a prominent notice on our website.
