Who Governs This DealsTooGoodtoPassUp Privacy Policy?

The website address is: https://dealstoogoodtopassup.com. You can read more about the writer. This DealsTooGoodtoPassUp Privacy Policy governs the manner in which Deals Too Good to Pass Up collects and discloses information collected from users. 

Personal Data Collected

Personal Information

The site may collect personal information from users in a variety of ways. Data collection includes, but is not limited to: whenever a user visits the site, or subscribes to updates. It gets collected in connection with other activities, services, features, or resources found here. Users may visit the site anonymously. Dealstoogoodtopassup will collect personal identification information from users only if they voluntarily submit it to us. Users can always refuse to supply personal information. Not providing information will restrict access to certain areas of the site, such as commenting, entering giveaways, and receiving updates.

Non-Personal Information

The site may collect non-personal information about users whenever they interact with it. Non-personal information may include the browser name, the type of computer and technical information about users means of connection to the site, such as the operating system and/or the Internet service providers utilized or other similar information.

Why The Site Collects Personal Information

There are many reasons, but the most common are to run a promotion, contest, survey, or send periodic emails. The email address provided may be used to respond to user inquiries, questions, and/or other requests. Users who decide to opt-in to the mailing list will receive emails that may include: news, updates, promo releases, articles, related product or service information, etc. A user may unsubscribe from receiving emails by visiting the site and opting out, or by following the detailed unsubscribe instructions at the bottom of each email.

Comments

Visitor comments are checked through an automated spam detection service. Only comments that clear the spam filters reach the site. 

When visitors leave comments on the site, we collect the data shown in the comments form. The visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string are collected to help spam detection.

An anonymized string created from your email address 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/. Your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment after your comment is approved.

Comment Links

I discovered improper links on March 8th, 2020, and I can only attribute them to user comments. To protect users from clicking on inappropriate links, I now remove all outside links from comments. Prior to this, I allowed users to link their blogs. Unfortunately, allowing this opened my site up to links I would never approve. Please only click comment links approved before the change with discretion. Content retrieved through a commenter link is not approved by this site.

DealsTooGoodtoPassUp Privacy Policy Media

Some users may choose to upload media. Any image you upload becomes the property of Deals Too Good to Pass Up while it is on the site. You can revoke access to your media at any time by deleting your file. Contact me if you are unable to delete it. Avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included.
