Who we are
Our website address is: http://firetheboss.eu. Fire The Boss, or FTB, is not a company. It is a blog by a private individual. You can reach out to me via [email protected]
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 use our contact form, the following data is stored and sent to my email address:
- IP address
- E-mail address
Mailing lists and newsletters
We use MailChimp as our e-mail provider. When you sign up for our newsletter or other e-mails, we sent your e-mail address and first name to MailChimp.
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.
Also, Google could potentially track you via their targeted advertisements.
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.
Also WordPress itself, via Jetpack, might track you data for analytical purposes.
Who we share your data with
Data could be shared with Google, and with MailChimp, when you sign up for our newsletter or other e-mail campaign.
We use a Facebook pixel to track the performance of our Facebook posts. This pixel sends your visit to Facebook for analysis.
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.
Information sent to Google will be retained for 14 months.
Information sent to MailChimp will be there until you decide to opt-out from our mail list.
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.
You can always opt-out from our e-mail list, at any time, by clicking the link below the mail or by sending a request to [email protected] to remove your address from the mail list.
Where we send your data
Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service, Akismet.
