Privacy Policy

Who we are

Our website address is: http://oldgodsheal.com. This site is run as a service to people suffering from Trauma who practice “non-traditional” spiritualities. It is for informational purposes only and should not be considered a substitute for psychiatric or professional therapeutic help. Contributors (unless stated otherwise) are not mental health professionals. We’re just people who’ve been through the shit and hope our experiences can be of service to others.

What personal data we collect and why we collect it

None. Feel free to use a fake name, be as anonymous as you want. If you do create an account on the site, however, we will require a real email address. This is to help spam prevention and to send you notifications if you want them.

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

At this time we do not have contact forms on the site, however in future if they are added any information entered will be saved by the website in order to facilitate whatever the purpose of the form is.

Cookies

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.

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.

Analytics

Who we share your data with

This is the internet. We don’t sell our data, however in future should we attempt to advertise this site on other social media platforms, it’s a big-ole mess. Facebook or google probably knows you’ve been here anyway as they’ve already read your cookies. We will never knowingly share personal data with any third party.

We do plan to institute an Amazon referral program so that books and resources recommended on the site, if purchased through our links, will generate a small commission. This will not alter your shopping experience in any way.

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.

Your contact information

Can be seen by site admin only and will never be shared.

Additional information

How we protect your data

I’m not a tech genius, I use tools provided by WordPress and the Jetpack plugin to protect the site.

What data breach procedures we have in place

Again, tools provided by WordPress and the Jetpack plugin. We’re not collecting vital information here, so there’s not much data for anyone to try and steal.

What third parties we receive data from

If you have a gravatar it will show up here if you create an account, but we get no personal information from that. If we did I wouldn’t know what to do with it.

What automated decision making and/or profiling we do with user data

We assume you’re a nice person until you show us otherwise.
