This Privacy Policy was last updated on July 12, 2023.

Who we are

Our website address is: https://chromapulse.net.

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

We collect information you provide directly to us. For example, we collect information when you fill out a form, send us an email, sign up for our newsletter, or otherwise communicate with us. The types of information we may collect include your name, email address, and any other information you choose to provide.

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 visit our login page, 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.

Our website uses cookies to track the referrals we send to our affiliate partners. These cookies are used to track sales and other activities for the purposes of assigning commission. You can disable the use of cookies at any time by changing the settings in your browser.

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 tracking your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.

Analytics

We use Google Analytics to help us understand how our customers use the Site. You can read more about how Google uses your Personal Information here: https://www.google.com/intl/en/policies/privacy/. You can also opt-out of Google Analytics here: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout.

Newsletter

If you subscribe to our newsletter, your email address and the date of your subscription will be stored. This information will be used solely for the purpose of sending the newsletter and will not be shared with third parties.

Surveys

We may also use your information to conduct surveys or research about your opinion of current services or of potential new services that may be offered. These surveys will be conducted by us and will be voluntary.

Affiliate Marketing

Our website engages in affiliate marketing, which is done by embedding tracking links into the website. If you click on a link for an affiliate partnership, a cookie will be placed on your browser to track any sales for purposes of commissions. We want to ensure it’s clear that a link is an affiliate link, so any time we use one, we will mark it accordingly.

Who we share your data with

If you request a password reset, your IP address will be included in the reset email.

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 your data is sent

Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.

How we protect your data

We take the security of your personal data very seriously. We use technical measures such as encryption and password protection to protect your data and the systems they are held in. We also use operational measures to protect the data, for example by limiting the number of people who have access to the databases in which our booking information is held. We take additional measures to protect your information by regularly running security plugins like Wordfence and WP Scan, vigilantly updating our WordPress and other plugins, and limiting the number of plugins on the website to reduce potential vulnerabilities.

Third-Party Services

We may share links to our articles on social media platforms. If you follow these links, you will be leaving our website and going to the platform in question. Each social media platform has its own policies about how it collects and uses personal data and we recommend you familiarize yourself with these.

In order to operate our affiliate program, we may share information about your visit to this site with our partners. This information does not include personal data such as your name or contact information. Our partners may combine this information with other information that you have provided to them or that they have collected from your use of their services.
