Who we are
Our website address is: https://www.patentbeast.com.
What personal data we collect and why we collect it
Though we don’t presently have any blog style posts where visitors can leave comments, WordPress in general has the following policy: 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.
Currently, clicking on the Contact form will take the user to the fish-ip.com/ask-a-question page to post questions there. When visitors contact us through the Ask a Question form 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.
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, we 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, we will 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.
We don’t currently use google analytics. Our hosting service has access logs allowing administrators to see who has visited the website. Logs are processed and archived every 24 hours, and the previous month’s logs are removed at the end of each month.
There is no personal information available through the access logs.
Who we share your data with
We do not share any user data.
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.
Though we currently don’t have any place for users to register on our site, if in the future there are, WordPress’ policy is as follows: 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.
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 have any questions or requests for removal of data, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Where we send your data
Though we don’t presently have any place for visitors to leave comments, if in the future there are such opportunities, WordPress has the following policy: Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.
