What personal data we collect and why we collect it

We’ll be blunt, we’re not going to mess around with your data, because, well, that’s just creepy. We work hard to ensure Fife for Kids is a safe and trustworthy place to find information about Fife and discover new businesses for families.

We take care to ensure your data is kept safe and protected, and we only use it to contact you should it be deemed relevant BUT you should know we do collect some information and here’s why:

We want to give you the best possible experience when using our site or corresponding with us. We will only ever use the details you share with us to help make your experience with Fife for Kids the best it can be, and nothing else.

Comments

When visitors leave comments/reviews 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. Nasty comments aren’t liked by anyone.

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

Visitors to the website can download and extract any location and contact information from listings for the their own personal use. E.g. finding the listed business. It is NOT to be used in anyway to market to/sell to/or otherwise annoy our valued companies. All listed businesses hold the copyright to their images being used and have given us permission to use them in relation to their listing. Duplicating without crediting the image is just rude. Don’t do it folks.

Contact forms

By providing us details such as your name and contact details in our contact form you are giving us permission to use these in order to respond to your query. Plain and simple, nothing else.

Cookies

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 tracing your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.

Where your data is stored

All data from visitors to our site is stored in a password protected file

All information sent to us that is required from listed businesses/groups/enterprises in order to create their listing is stored as above.

Who we share your data with

As a visitor to our site we won’t ever share your data without your consent. Full stop.

As a general rule we don’t share your data with third parties BUT if you’re a listed business and we do wish to pass on your contact details we’ll have spoken to you about this first and gained your permission. Most likely we’ve found a like minded business that you may like to connect with.

How long we retain your data

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognise and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.

If your a listed business, we hold you details indefinitely unless you decide to unregister your business from our directory.

What rights you have over your data

If you have a listing on this site, or have left comments, you have various rights in relation to the date we have collected about you, for exmaple the right to receive a copy of the data we hold, the right to ask us to send a copy of the information we hold to another business and  the right to request that we erase any personal data we hold about you from our records. 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 for your own safety and to continue to keep Fife for Kids a safe site for everyone. We don’t sell you information to anyone and we don’t send it anywhere else, not even on holiday.
