Who we are
Our website address is: https://truthyism.com.
What personal data we collect and why we collect it
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.
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.
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.
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.
Who we share your data with
Other than the Analytics tools and Cookie notification above, we do not share any information at this time with any other providers, however, if you are inside the United States, there may be issues where your ISP among others capture, sell or otherwise use your information anytime you access the internet, like right now. However, that’s outside of our control and if you agree this isn’t acceptable, contact your local government representative and remember to vote.
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.
Google Analytics and others may retain data until the cows come up, or the website dies and all associated records no longer exist, whichever comes first. Given we at Truthyism do not own any cows, we expect to retain what data we collect for a long while.
What rights you have over your data
If you access our website and do not want us storing your visitor information (ip address, type of browser, device, and more) then please close this window, delete your cache, then delete the browser, then clean up your device by performing a backup or restore function. Do not forget to also overwrite the hard drive a few times, then finally, use a Blendtec blender to completely destroy all records while being careful not to cause injury. Finally, after dealing with the device, you’ll need to follow up and do similar with your local ISP, if in fact you want all records scrubbed. We do not believe this to be possible, but, good luck to you for trying. 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. In addition, the basement dwelling intern may use Excel, Google Sheets, or similar to extract, correlate, dissect, analyze, hypothesize and otherwise interact with the data we collect.
At this time, the best way to contact us is listed on this handy contact us page.
Truthyism is located in the United Stats, as such, if you’re subject to the GDPR or other sets of rules, be advised, we’re only following the local privacy policies and laws we are subject to as a result of our location. Eventually, if we do aim to collect a European audience, we’ll investigate how and where to implement GDPR related policies.
