How we handle your data

This website is located at https://www.macburkepublishing.com and belongs to MacBurke Publishing ("we," "us," "our," "ours"), which is the project of Peter Burke. You're welcome to email info@macburkepublishing.com to contact Peter Burke with any questions or concerns about our handling of your data.

We collect personal data for business purposes.

Comments & Reviews

When visitors leave comments or product reviews on the site, we collect the data shown in the comments or reviews 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 Form

We also collect the information that visitors voluntarily provide by using our contact form. We use this information for business purposes (for example, to answer questions and fulfill requests made). We do not use this 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.

We don't control 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 exactly 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 tracking your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.

If you have questions or concerns about the behavior of any embedded content that you see on this website, we suggest you go to the platform where that content is hosted and read its privacy policy.

We use third-party tools for business purposes.

Analytics

This website uses WooCommerce as its ecommerce platform. WooCommerce provides analytics data on sales performance and trends.

Beyond product analytics, we may also install analytics tools to monitor standard metrics such as traffic sources, pages visited, time spent on each page, etc. We do not knowingly store personally identifying data. All the data that we track in this way is aggregated, and our use of it is strictly for the purpose of optimizing our store's performance.

We retain your data indefinitely.

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.

If you leave a review, the content of your review is retained indefinitely in accordance with our understanding of your wishes.

If you send us a message using our contact form, the content of your message will be sent to info@macburkepublishing.com where it will be retained indefinitely or deleted per the discretion of the recipient, Peter Burke, who will use the content of your message to answer your questions or fulfill your requests in alignment with business purposes.

The aggregated analytics data that we collect is retained indefinitely for the purpose of evaluating the function of our website.

We don't share your data with anyone.

The only exception to this statement would be if we were legally obligated to provide information to an authorized entity upon request.

Where Data is Sent

User-submitted content may be checked through an automated spam detection service.

You have rights over your data.

If you've left one or more comments or reviews, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you've 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.

We take efforts to protect your data.

Security

When it comes to payment processing, we rely on trusted payment portals such as WooCommerce and Paypal to encrypt your payment data (including your card data, name, billing address, etc.) and secure your transactions. If you have questions about the specific steps that these platforms take to protect your data, please visit their websites and read their privacy policies.

Data Breach

In the event that we became aware of a data breach, we would without delay and to the best of our ability notify every person affected, while taking whatever steps we had in our power to secure the breach.

Contact us if you have questions.

You're welcome to email info@macburkepublishing.com with any questions or concerns about this policy.
