Who we are
Our website address is https://poptopnews.com.
When people leave comments on the site, we collect the information from the comments form as well as their IP address and the user agent string from their browser. This helps us find spam.
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.
You can choose to save your name, email address, and website in cookies if you leave a comment on our site. These are for your convenience so you don’t have to re-enter your information every time you leave a comment. These cookies can be kept for a year.
If you go to our login page, we’ll put a temporary cookie on your computer to see if your browser can handle cookies. This cookie has no personal information in it, and when you close your browser, it goes away.
When you log in, we’ll also set up a few cookies to remember your login information and the way you want your screen to look. Cookies for logging in last for two days, and cookies for setting up your screen last for a year. If you choose “Remember Me,” you will be able to use the same login for two weeks. If you sign out of your account, the cookies that let you sign in will be deleted.
If you make changes to an article or publish it, your browser will save an extra cookie. This cookie doesn’t contain any personal information; it just shows the post ID of the article you just edited. It’s only good for one 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.
If you request a password reset, your IP address will be included in the reset email.
How long do we retain your data?
If you leave a comment, the comment and the information about it are kept forever. This is so that any follow-up comments will be recognized and approved automatically, instead of having to wait in a moderation queue.
If a user registers on our website, we also keep the personal information they give us in their user profile. All users can always see, change, or get rid of their personal information (except they cannot change their username). Administrators of the website can also see and change this information.
What rights do 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 do we send your data?
Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.
