Privacy Policy

Who we are:

Our web­site address is: http://​www​.fried​chick​e​nand​cof​fee​.com, the online home of crime writer and edi­tor Rusty Barnes.

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.

We col­lect infor­ma­tion about vis­i­tors who com­ment on Sites that use our Akismet anti-spam ser­vice. The infor­ma­tion we col­lect depends on how the User sets up Akismet for the Site, but typ­i­cal­ly includes the commenter's IP address, user agent, refer­rer, and Site URL (along with oth­er infor­ma­tion direct­ly pro­vid­ed by the com­menter such as their name, user­name, email address, and the com­ment itself).

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://​automat​tic​.com/​p​r​i​v​a​cy/. 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.

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 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.

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

Who we share your data with:

We share data with no one except as required by law.

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.
