What personal data we collect and why we collect it

Comments

When visitors leave comments on our 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.

Contact form

You may contact us using our contact form. The form requires you to give a name and email address along with your message. This information allows us to be able to respond to you. It also helps us to block spam email. We do not use the information submitted through the contact form for marketing purposes.

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 have an account and you login 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.

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.

Analytics

Putnam Press may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its website.  Putnam Press may display this information publicly, or provide it to others. However, Putnam Press does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described in this policy.

Who we share your data with

We do not sell, trade, or otherwise transfer your personally identifiable information to outside parties. This does not include trusted third parties who assist us in operating our website, conducting our business, or servicing you, so long as those parties agree to keep this information confidential. We may also release your information to comply with the law, or to protect the rights, property, or safety of others. However, non-personally identifiable visitor information may be provided to other parties for marketing, advertising, or other uses.

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. Site data, including your personally identifiable information, may be transferred to trusted third parties who assist us in operating our website and servicing our visitors. These third parties include our web hosting company and website backup services.

GDPR AND OUR PLUGINS

Our plugins and add-ons are compatible with GDPR. Below are the common questions related to GDPR.

Do your plugins track any data?

We do not track any user data via our plugins. But if our plugin depends on any third party service, they might track user data. This can happen in the following two ways:

1. Embedded Widgets

Some of our plugins have features to integrate embedded widgets as is, from third party services (such as Facebook Like, Facebook Recommend, Twitter Tweet official buttons).

2. Third-party APIs/Connections

Our plugins send requests to third party APIs via website-visitor’s web browser to fetch information (like social shares, social comment count). This request made by the web browser may include an IP address, which can then be seen by the third-party that it’s being requested from. This API request doesn’t include any personal data of the website user other than the IP address.

Where is the data collected by your plugins stored?

Our plugins run absolutely on our website and store the data in the database of our website. We do not share any data fetched by our plugins with any third party.

Do your plugins load any external scripts?

As mentioned before, our plugins run absolutely from our website and hence load the scripts to/from our website with the exception of third-party embedded widgets (like Twitter tweet official button, Facebook Like/Recommend official button, Facebook Comments) which require our plugin to load scripts from the servers of the relevant service.
