Who we are

What personal data I collect and why I collect it

Forum Comments

When visitors leave comments on the forum (forum.shortfloat.com), 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.

Media

If you upload images to the forum and/or 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. I personally don’t care about EXIF data, but you should know and be careful with that.

Contact forms

If you use my contact form, the data is stored/processed so your message can get to me — It’s not rocket science, I’m not harvesting data or anything.

Cookies

If you leave a comment on our forum, 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 to the forum, 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.

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

I use Google Analytics, it helps me figure out what content to publish next. But honestly, it’s more for validation than anything else.

Who I share your data with

Me, myself, and I — I don’t share your data with anyone. The way I share your data is by doing things like saying to my girlfriend, “Hey! I just had a visitor from Norway on my website!” And she rolls her eyes and gives me a cookie, like I did a good job or something.

How long I retain your data

If you leave a comment on the forum, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely.

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, 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. — As of now I don’t know what “administrative, legal, or security” data is, but I figured I’d leave this in the boilerplate Privacy Policy in case data comes forward as such?

Where I send your data

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

Your contact information

I’m not a magician, I can’t extract your contact data from you, nor do I want to. Anything you submit yourself to the forum becomes forum data. If you put a real contact, cool; if you put a fake one, that’s cool too.

Additional information

How I protect your data

We use https? That helps (or so I’ve heard)

What data breach procedures I have in place

I use strong passwords and protect against xpath injects. Honestly, I’m a one-man show and I really don’t want/need your data.

What third parties I receive data from

0, I don’t receive, nor seek, data from any third party (that I know of).

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

None. I’d like to set up an automated Mailchimp eventually, but for now there’s no automation or profiling.

Industry regulatory disclosure requirements

I am part of the Big Volleyball Conglomerate. What that means is that I’m here to brainwash all volleyball players into becoming better volleyball players and stop them from eating fast food before practice. We’re a giant club that believes if you pancake a ball, you’re just lazy and you should move your feet sooner.
