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 anonymised 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.

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 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.

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 tracing your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.

Analytics

Your IP address is your computer’s individual identification number and is automatically logged by our web server. This is used to note your interest in our website and it may also used to help improve our web site.

Cookies are small text files that are placed on your computer by websites that you visit. They are widely used in order to make websites work, or work more efficiently, as well as to provide information to the owners of the site. Some of the cookies We use are essential for parts of the site to operate and have already been set. You may block cookies from Our Site using your browser cookie controls, but please note parts of Our Site will not work and you may be unable to access certain parts of Our Site. For further information please refer to our Cookies Policy.

It is not possible for us to predict the route which the information will travel (due to the Internet’s infrastructure being a global one), this means your information may be temporarily transferred outside the European Economic Area (“EEA”). The nature of Internet communications means that your communications may be susceptible to data corruption, interception and delays.

We may collect information about your computer, including where available your IP address, operating system and browser type, for system administration and to report aggregate information. This is statistical data about the F & I Associations website users’ browsing actions and patterns, and does not identify any individual.

For the same reason, We may obtain information about your general internet usage by using cookie files which are stored on the hard drive of your computer. The cookies help Us to improve Our Site and to deliver a better and more personalised service. They enable us:

a) To estimate audience size and the usage pattern.

b) To store information about your preferences, and so allow us to customise the Web Site according to your individual interests.

c) To speed up your searches.

d) To recognise you when you return to our Web Site.

Who we share your data with

Social media associated with the website: Facebook.

We treat your data with the utmost respect and privacy and We will never sell your data to third parties.

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.
