What personal data we collect and why we collect it

Comments

When visitors leave comments on the site I 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 anonymised 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.

Corgi

Corgi(bot) will store your Discord ID, and your username (at the time you made the command) in the server's logs at the time you use a command that results in a change on the server; for example creating a team, adding a player to a team, muting a user, etc.

For events where you need to purchase tickets for, Corgi will have access to your order details for the duration of the event and shortly afterwards. Please see the "How long we retain your data" section for more information on this.

Google Forms

Your email address, along with your Discord and Tiebreak names will be collected for any events you sign up for, which is completed via Google Forms. For results your Tie Break name and Discord Name will be captured. This enables us, and the users in the event, to easily communicate with you for arranging of games and record your results correctly.

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 visit our login page, I 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.

When you log in, Iwill also set up several cookies to save your login information and your screen display choices. Login cookies last for two days, and screen options cookies last for a year. If you select "Remember Me", your login will persist for two weeks. If you log out of your account, the login cookies will be removed.

If you edit or publish an article, an additional cookie will be saved in your browser. This cookie includes no personal data and simply indicates the post ID of the article you just edited. It expires after 1 day.

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.

Who we share your data with

Your Discord Name and Tie Break Name will be shared in the Fishcord Server for any events you sign up for.

How long we retain your data

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so I can recognise 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.

Data within Google Forms for event sign ups and results are retained indefinitely. Google Sheets provided with a list of Tie Break Names and Discord Names are cleared shortly after an event completes (this should normally be within a couple of weeks).

Data from any orders you make via Shopify will be retained within the database Corgi uses for at least one month after the event is completed, and will be deleted within 3 months of the event concluding.

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.

If you would like any comments you have made removed, or would like to request to information, please leave a comment on the blog page your comment was made, or on this page. (comments made on this page will be removed after being read). We will then contact you via email to supply to information requested or confirm the comments have been removed.

Where we send your data

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