Who we are
Our website address is: https://newsviews.online.
What personal data we collect and why we collect it
When visitors leave comments on the site we only collect masked data by the Disqus platform, these are visitor’s masked IP and e-mail address to help combat spam or put permanent or short term sanctions on users that violate our Community Guidelines.
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.
For users that submit and publish articles we 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.
Who we share your data with
How long we retain your data
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, 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. This excludes any data stored for comment on the Disqus platform.
Where we send your data
Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.
Your contact information
The contact for users with a newsviews.online account, are not shared with any third parties and remain under the sole custody of News Views.
What automated decision making and/or profiling we do with user data
We use a web application firewall to make automated decisions to block suspicious activity. In simple terms: If you are some Joe sniffing at the gate on a daily basis, odds are our automated system may pick up your behavior and act on it. We reserve the right to report repeat offenders to local law enforcement.
If you feel you have been erroneously blocked by our automated firewall, you may contact us via firstname.lastname@example.org so we can take the case under review.
