Who we are
Our website address is: https://www.beantocupcoffeemachines.net.
What personal data we collect and why we collect it
The computer our website is stored on is called a server. We collect your IP address in server log files as you navigate around our site. We do this as it helps us to identify the cause when things go wrong. For example, we may wish to identify a certain sequence of events that cause our website to function in an unexpected manner, or to block malicious users that are trying to negatively affect the experience of our legitimate visitors.
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. In general, we have disabled the ability to leave comments on this website, however there may be occasions when we allow comments to be left.
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.
We use the Contact 7 plugin to supply our contact form. The plugin does not store the message or your personal information on this website, however it does transmit the information you supply to us via email, including any personal information you choose to include. Part of that will include the email address you supply us with in order to respond.
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.
We use Google Analytics to provide our website’s statistical analysis. We configure Google Analytics to record your visit with anonymised IP addresses, which allows us to monitor website usage without collecting unnecessary personal information. Analytics reporting is used in aggregate terms, meaning that we study trends across all users, not individual, identifiable users.
We do not sell any personal data that may be collected on this website.
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
If comments are enabled, they may be checked through an automated spam detection service.
Your contact information
You can contact us at any time via our website contact form. We aim to respond to you as soon as possible.
How we protect your data
We collect very little personal information from our visitors, as described above. We use industry standard software in order to provide our service, and all additional software added via plugins to our platform (WordPress) serves a specific purpose in order to improve and enhance our website and service to you. We regularly check for software updates to reduce the risk of vulnerabilities due to outdated software.
We use a professional hosting company rather than operate our website servers from our own premises. That means that the computers sending you our website are in a professionally maintained data centre, which is physically secure.
What data breach procedures we have in place
If we were to suffer a data breach, it will be recorded in our data breach register. If it is deemed to be serious, for example sensitive information may have been compromised, it will be reported to the Information Commissioner’s Office in the UK.
What third parties we receive data from
We do not receive personal information from third parties.
What automated decision making and/or profiling we do with user data
We do not undertake automated decision making or profiling.
