Who we share your data with:
Programs are in place to provide anonymous aggregated data into a website viewer profile. We aggregate data using Google Analytics, and are GDPR compliant with the data we collect and it’s use. Data collected is used to analyze general trends of site visitors and how they interact with the site while visiting. We use this data to improve the website experience for the viewers. Users can opt out of our analytics tracking at any time upon request.
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.
We keep contact form entries and analytics records for a year.
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. We collect information about visitors who comment on Sites that use our Akismet anti-spam service. The information we collect depends on how the User sets up Akismet for the Site, but typically includes the commentor’s IP address, user agent, referrer, and Site URL (along with other information directly provided by the commentor such as their name, username, email address, and the comment itself).
How we protect your data
We work with secure partners only. Our hosting provider, Siteground is also GDPR compliant.
What data breach procedures we have in place
Our hosting company, SiteGround, has a (Data Protection Authority) DPA and will take immediate action should a data breach occur. The DPA responsibilities include timely disclosure by SiteGround, if a personal data breach is detected by them to have happened on the servers used by BEP. They are obliged to notify us within 72 hours from the time of the breach, at which point we will notify you if any data is compromised.
Minimum Access Principle
The SiteGround DPA puts in writing their obligation to access any data that Hkg Public Health Projects, LLC stores on their servers only to the extent needed to provide their services and to make sure only employees that are directly involved with the provision of the service have access to it. Hkg Public Health Projects, LLC restricts data access to the Owner, Heather Gates.
If we make material changes to this Policy, we will notify you here, by email, or by means of a notice via our website.
