Privacy Policy

Lazy Girl Designs found at https://www.lazygirldesigns.com (“Website”) is governed by the following privacy policy (“Privacy Policy”).

We respect your privacy and are committed to protecting it. The purpose of this Privacy Policy is to inform you what personally identifiable information we may collect and how it may be used. This statement only applies to this Website.

What personal data we collect and why we collect it

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.

Media

At this time we do not allow visitors to upload images to the Website. If that should change in the future and 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 forms

If you submit a contact form, Lazy Girl Designs collects data to respond to your inquiry. Once Lazy Girl Designs has responded and resolved your inquiry, this data is not kept.

Blog Posts and Newsletters

You may subscribe to our blog posts and newsletter, which may be used for advertising purposes. All blog posts and newsletters are sent through MailChimp which may contain tracking components that track when you open an email and which links within the email you click. This behavior will not be passed on to third parties.

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.

Embedded content and Affiliate Links from other websites

Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.) or affiliate links. Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website. Following affiliate links will take you from our Website to the linked website where you’ll be subject to their privacy policy.

Who we share your data with

We do not share your data with anyone.

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.

What rights you have over your data

If you 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.
