Privacy Policy

Who we are

Spring Media News commits to protecting your privacy and developing technology that gives you a solid and safe online experience. This Statement of Privacy applies to the Spring Media Web site (www.springmedianews.com) and governs data collection and usage. By using the Spring Media News website, you consent to the data practices described in this statement.

What personal data we collect and why we collect it

Spring Media News collects personally identifiable information, such as your e-mail address, name, home or work address or telephone number.

There is also information about your computer hardware and software that is automatically collected by Spring Media. This information can include your IP address, browser type, domain names, access times and referring Web site addresses. This information is used by Spring Media for the operation of the service, to maintain quality of the service, and to provide general statistics regarding use of the Spring Media Web site.

Spring Media collects and uses your personal information to operate the Spring Media Web site and deliver the services you have requested. Spring Media also uses your personally identifiable information to inform you of other products or services available from Spring Media and its affiliates. Spring Media may also contact you via surveys to conduct research about your opinion of current services or of potential new services that may be offered. Spring media does not sell, rent or lease its visitor lists to third parties.

Spring Media may, from time to time, contact you on behalf of external business partners about a particular offering that may be of interest to you. In those cases, your unique personally identifiable information (e-mail, name, address, telephone number) is not transferred to the third party. Spring Media keeps track of the Web sites and pages our customers visit within our site, in order to determine what Spring Media services are the most popular. This data is used to deliver customized content and advertising within Spring Media to customers whose behaviour indicates that they are interested in a particular subject area.

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.

Who we share your data with

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.

Updates to this Statement

Spring Media will occasionally update this Statement of Privacy to reflect company and customer feedback. Spring Media encourages you to periodically review this Statement to be informed of how Spring Media is protecting your information.
