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 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.

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.

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.

Information That Does Not Identify You

MicroAge Manitoba may share non-personal or summary information that does not identify you with advertisers, partners or other third parties.

MicroAge Manitoba logs certain technical information from your computer’s web browser when you visit us on the Internet. This information includes your Internet address, the address of the website you are coming from, the amount of time you spend visiting our website, the pages visited, the operating system and web browser software you use, and, if you link to us through a search engine, the keywords you use to find our website. The logs do not record personal information, can be accessed only by MicroAge Manitoba, and are used solely to track visits to our site and improve its content and layout. MicroAge Manitoba never attempts to tie this information to particular individuals visiting our website, unless that is necessary for investigating a security breach.

When you visit our website, you are assigned a temporary text file called a cookie through your web browser. It is placed on your computer for programming purposes only and enhances your use of the site by providing a unique identifier as you move from page to page. If you use the search engine, it remembers the keywords you enter. The cookie is never redirected to servers outside MicroAge Manitoba.

Disclosure and Retention of Your Information

The personal information you provide through our site is never disclosed to third parties without your consent. We do not sell or trade your personal information to other organizations or companies, and it is shared with others only in the ways explained to you at the time it is disclosed.

The account information you provide is stored in our secure databases. You must notify us in writing if you no longer want us to maintain your information.

How Your Information Is Kept Safe during Transmission

MicroAge Manitoba strives to provide a secure online environment for the transmission of personal information such as credit card details, usernames, and passwords.
