Who we are
“We” are in fact an “I”, and I am Danny Letham, of Liverpool House LL18 6AB, UK. The website address is: http://www.thevoiceofdaniel.com
While The Voice Of Daniel provides business-to-business (B2B) services only, we are very aware that even corporate enquiries come from real people, and so any info collected by this website will be treated as if it were personal information. In these parts, corporations are indeed people!
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.
The details that you supply on contact forms is stored in two distinct portions: your Contact information (see below), and your correspondence, which typically contains a copy of your name and email address. Correspondence is converted to an email transmission. and subsequently removed from the website database within 2 calendar months, typically by the end of the month following the month of receipt. Email records are stored on servers at LCN.com – please refer to “Where we send your data”, below.
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.
Who we share your data with
Absolutely nobody, except for the bodies for whom we are obliged to disclose data for administrative, legal, or security purposes.
How long we retain your data
If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognise 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. Our website hosting company, LCN.com, retains a copy for the duration of its “data shelf life”. LCN is a highly reputable and entirely GDPR-compliant company whose servers are located in the United Kingdom.
Your contact information, etc.
The commentary above notwithstanding, at the time of writing (May 2018) the only data to be kept indefinitely on the website’s database is your contact information. (See “contact forms” above)
