Privacy Policy

Who we are

Our website address is: https://chrishallessex.co.uk/

This website is run by Rosemarie Gant on behalf of Chrishall Archive Group.

Collection of personal information

The only personal information we hold is if you sign up for our newsletter and we ask for an email address.  This is used purely to send you an occasional newsletter and for no other purpose.  It is not passed on to anyone for any reason.

We use Mailchimp to send newsletters.  You can see the Mailchimp privacy policy here.

We use iDrive to securely back up files.  You can see the iDrive privacy policy here.

I use Gmail to access the email accounts for Chrishall history.  See the Gmail privacy policy here.

Comments

When visitors leave comments 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.

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 if you use this service.

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.

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.

Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.
