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

In order to keep required records, Omega Retreat collects a donors name, email address and other personal information such as a phone number. Omega Retreat does not sell, share, rent, trade, barter or otherwise disclose donor information to any 3rd party.

Cookies

If you leave a comment on our site or make a donation, 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.

Secure Payments

All credit card and personal profile information provided to Omega Retreat through its Internet software partner, PayPal Inc., is transmitted with SSL (Secure Socket Layer) encryption using Payflow as a payment gateway. SSL is a proven coding system that allows a browser to automatically encrypt data before it is sent over the Internet.

Omega Retreat collects information as follows:

  • Information you provide online: By donating to Omega Retreat or signing up for email updates, the information you volunteer includes your name and email address. Omega Retreat will only send communications (such as our newsletter), as detailed on the online signup form, if you elect to receive them.
  • Information you provide offline: When donating offline, you have the option to share your email address, physical address, and telephone number with Omega Retreat. Doing so allows you to receive communications you have elected to receive from Omega Retreat.
  • Information Omega Retreat collects: Omega Retreat uses various website optimizing tools and marketing plugins (such as Facebook’s Pixel) to assess its website’s performance and content strategy. This involves the use of “cookies,” or simple text files stored by a visitor’s web browser, to collect anonymous data about visitors to and usage of Omega Retreat’s website. This information, which is not associated with the visitor’s personal identity, includes pages viewed, date and time of visit, browser/technology type, donation revenue, conversion rate, geographic region, and marketing attributes as defined by Google.

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.

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.

Questions, comments, or concerns?

If, at any time, you have questions or would like to review, correct, or remove your personal information collected by Omega Retreat, please contact us via email or telephone and a member of our team will be happy to process your request.
