Privacy Policy

Who we are

Our website address is: http://radioheritage.uk/press.

We are members of a world wide community of people with an interest in radio communications.

What personal data we collect and why we collect it

The purpose of our site is to gather data that can be used to improve services. It is also to affect social change by highlighting unacceptable and therefore anti-social behaviour and its impact on the community. Any support offered is provided on a best endeavours basis. Please note we are not legal professionals and can give no legal advice.

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.

Case Studies

If you tell us about a problem you had we may open a case study and correspond both privately and openly with the other parties. We will do that only with your approval.

Unless you specifically tell us to share your personal information as part of a campaign then we will not publish your name and address in association with it but may use the story to highlight situations that confront us as radio amateurs and users of the local government planning services or radio spectrum.

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.

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 have an account and you log in to this site, 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.

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.

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.

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.

Where we send your data

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

How we protect your data

We do not publish data about you unless you agree to share it.

What data breach procedures we have in place

We are not equipped to deal with data breaches and rely on our hosts 34sp.com for security services. If you register on the site, please take care with passwords and your own personal security.

What automated decision making and/or profiling we do with user data

All our decisions are made by human beings.
