Who we are

Our website address is: http://rapptile.com.

What personal data we collect and why we collect it

In this section you should note what personal data you collect from users and site visitors. This may include personal data, such as name, email address, personal account preferences; transactional data, such as purchase information; and technical data, such as information about cookies.

You should also note any collection and retention of sensitive personal data, such as data concerning health.

In addition to listing what personal data you collect, you need to note why you collect it. These explanations must note either the legal basis for your data collection and retention or the active consent the user has given.

Personal data is not just created by a user’s interactions with your site. Personal data is also generated from technical processes such as contact forms, comments, cookies, analytics, and third party embeds.

By default WordPress does not collect any personal data about visitors, and only collects the data shown on the User Profile screen from registered users. However some of your plugins may collect personal data. You should add the relevant information below.

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

We may keep contact form submissions details for a certain period for customer service purposes, but we will not use such 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.

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.

If you edit or publish an article, an additional cookie will be saved in your browser. This cookie includes no personal data and simply indicates the post ID of the article you just edited. It expires after 1 day.

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

Who we share your data with

In this section you should name and list all third party providers with whom you share site data, including partners, cloud-based services, payment processors, and third party service providers, and note what data you share with them and why. Link to their own privacy policies if possible.

By default WordPress does not share any personal data with anyone.

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.

Your contact information

In this section you should provide a contact method for privacy-specific concerns. If you are required to have a Data Protection Officer, list their name and full contact details here as well.

Additional information

If you use your site for commercial purposes and you engage in more complex collection or processing of personal data, you should note the following information in your privacy policy in addition to the information we have already discussed.

How we protect your data

In this section you should explain what measures you have taken to protect your users’ data. This could include technical measures such as encryption; security measures such as two factor authentication; and measures such as staff training in data protection. If you have carried out a Privacy Impact Assessment, you can mention it here too.

What data breach procedures we have in place

In this section you should explain what procedures you have in place to deal with data breaches, either potential or real, such as internal reporting systems, contact mechanisms, or bug bounties.

What third parties we receive data from

If your web site receives data about users from third parties, including advertisers, this information must be included within the section of your privacy policy dealing with third party data.

What automated decision making and/or profiling we do with user data

If your web site provides a service which includes automated decision making – for example, allowing customers to apply for credit, or aggregating their data into an advertising profile – you must note that this is taking place, and include information about how that information is used, what decisions are made with that aggregated data, and what rights users have over decisions made without human intervention.

Industry regulatory disclosure requirements

If you are a member of a regulated industry, or if you are subject to additional privacy laws, you may be required to disclose that information here.

  • Privacy Policy:

    Rapptile ("Rapptile") operates rapptile.com and may operate other websites. It is Rapptile policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our websites.

    Website Visitors

    Like most website operators, Rapptile collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. Rapptile purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Rapptile visitors use its website. From time to time, Rapptile may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.

    Rapptile also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on rapptile.com blogs/sites. Rapptile only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below, except that commenter IP addresses and email addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the blog/site where the comment was left.

    Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

    Certain visitors to Rapptile websites choose to interact with Rapptile in ways that require Rapptile to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Rapptile gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up at rapptile.com to provide a username and email address. Those who engage in transactions with Rapptile are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, Rapptile collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor's interaction with Rapptile. Rapptile does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.

    Aggregated Statistics

    Rapptile may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. Rapptile may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, Rapptile does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.

    Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information

    Rapptile discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on Rapptile behalf or to provide services available at Rapptile websites, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using Rapptile websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Rapptile will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, Rapptile discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when Rapptile believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Rapptile, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of an Rapptile website and have supplied your email address, Rapptile may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what's going on with Rapptile and our products. If you send us a request (for example via email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. Rapptile takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.

    Cookies

    A cookie is a string of information that a website stores on a visitor's computer, and that the visitor's browser provides to the website each time the visitor returns. Rapptile uses cookies to help Rapptile identify and track visitors, their usage of Rapptile website, and their website access preferences. Rapptile visitors who do not wish to have cookies placed on their computers should set their browsers to refuse cookies before using Rapptile websites, with the drawback that certain features of Rapptile websites may not function properly without the aid of cookies.

    Business Transfers

    If Rapptile, or substantially all of its assets, were acquired, or in the unlikely event that Rapptile goes out of business or enters bankruptcy, user information would be one of the assets that is transferred or acquired by a third party. You acknowledge that such transfers may occur, and that any acquirer of Rapptile may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.

    Ads

    Ads appearing on any of our websites may be delivered to users by advertising partners, who may set cookies. These cookies allow the ad server to recognize your computer each time they send you an online advertisement to compile information about you or others who use your computer. This information allows ad networks to, among other things, deliver targeted advertisements that they believe will be of most interest to you. This Privacy Policy covers the use of cookies by Rapptile and does not cover the use of cookies by any advertisers.

    Privacy Policy Changes

    Although most changes are likely to be minor, Rapptile may change its Privacy Policy from time to time, and in Rapptile sole discretion. Rapptile encourages visitors to frequently check this page for any changes to its Privacy Policy. If you have a rapptile.com account, you might also receive an alert informing you of these changes. Your continued use of this site after any change in this Privacy Policy will constitute your acceptance of such change.
