This policy concerns the collection, storage, and use of personal data that you provide to Martin C. Vendryes Woodworking (hereafter, “we”/”us”/”our”).
Martin C. Vendryes Woodworking thoroughly respects your privacy. There are two sources of your personal data that may be supplied to us: that which is automatically supplied by your communication device, and that which you expressly send to us for purposes of interaction and service.
Our website address is: http://www.mcvendryes.ca.
Automated Data Collection and Processing by your Browser
As with many websites, this site uses Google Analytics (hereafter, “Google”). Google collects various information about your activity that you supply based on the configuration of your device, and stores it according to their own policy. No personally identifiable information concerning you is provided to us by Google. Google enables us to access only data that pertains to your use of our site such as the country and city of your ISP, the type of communication device that you use, which of our pages you access, the date and hour of your session, and similar generic information that enables us to analyze how our site is used. None of this data can positively identify any user. We do not store any of this information on our own systems but may access it privately through Google from time to time for purposes of evaluating the effectiveness of our website.
Personal Information that You Supply to Us
You supply us with personal information when you communicate with us directly, whether by phone, email, contact form, or social media. With the exception of comments on social media platforms, or a comments section on our website into which you directly input data, none of your communication to us is publicly accessible. Note that the privacy settings on the various social media platforms that we use are designated public. Various social media platforms may use any information you supply to them according to their own policies.
With respect to any information that you communicate to us. None of that information is shared with any party that is not directly involved in the completion of project work that you have contracted with us for or about which you have made inquiry.
Thus, we do not share any of your information with any party for purposes of solicitation or any other reason without your express consent or directive. Based on your direct communication with us, we may include you in newsletters delivered by email about twice per year. We abhor spam. Please do not mark any communication from us as spam; rather, if at any time you wish to discontinue receiving communication from us, please indicate this and your request will be processed immediately.
Other 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.
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.
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.
