The Rhythm Journal, a DBA under Corby Stephens LLC, take your privacy very seriously. We only use and store what we need to use and store to provide you with the best experience on our website. Here are the details.
Who we are
Our website address is: https://www.therhythmjournal.com.
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 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.
Information you submit via contact forms is not stored on our host’s server. It is sent to us via email. We use it for correspondence purposes only. We do not automatically add this information to any database or email lists.
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.
We use https://plausible.io for our website analytics. It is a privacy-focused platform hosted in the EU. You can view their Data Policy here.
Who we share your data with
We provide the option for users to setup their accounts on our site with their credentials from Facebook, Google, and Twitter. We use the WooCommerce family of WordPress plugins to run our store. WooCommerce will use your shipping address information to generate shipping cost estimates. It is sent to the USPS for this purpose but it isn’t stored anywhere else. We do not share your data with anyone outside The Rhythm Journal unless it is a part of a feature that links data from one platform to another which you do of your own volition, or without your express permission.
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.
For people who buy our products and setup an account on our system, your information is retained indefinitely for your convenience.
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.
