Privacy Policy

Hello, Welcome to BlueGreenBlack (https://bgblack.com), a webcomic owned and created by Hades. As a sole creator and generally a hermit, I have very little interest in making the GDPR side of this more complex than it needs to be. By visiting this website, you increase my total number of “Site visitors” (from one to infinity).

TL;DR version

  • I do not and will not sell your personal information.
  • Basic cookies will be set - mainly if you leave a comment or set site preferences such as enabling Mobile Theme.
  • If you are logged in to WordPress.com or Gravatar, any interaction you have with the site may be tracked (such as liking a post, leaving a comment).
  • All data collected by third parties is for the purposes of helping me track the number of site visitors and for general site security-related purposes. This data should not be personally identifiable, unless you’ve provided that information yourself.
  • Who are the “third parties” involved here? -- My website host, Wordpress elements including Akismet, themes and plugins that make this site look half-way decent.

    By clicking “OK” or continuing to browse this website, you provide consent for basic data collection.
    If you are not comfortable with this – please feel free to email me with a question, close this tab forever, do some research about GDPR and how it works, or choose your own path.

The Longer version (mainly copy-pasted from WordPress… sorry, I did try to clean it up a bit.)

What personal data is collected and why?

Comments

When visitors leave comments on the site, WordPress collects 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. If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely.

Contact forms

If you contact me, I will be able to see your email address and the message you’ve sent me. I may keep your contact form submissions for a certain period for customer service purposes (or for sentimental value, if you’ve written something kind). I do not use the information submitted through Contact Forms for marketing purposes.

Cookies

If you leave a comment on my 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 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.

Analytics

The analytics data collected is anonymous, unless you’ve opted to log in or leave a comment.

Privacy Policy (cont'd... by Jetpack & friends)

For more info, you can also go to the Jetpack's and/or Akismet own Privacy Policy pages.

Where we send your data
Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service. The information collected includes the commenter's IP address, user agent, referrer, and Site URL (along with other information directly provided by the commenter such as their name, username, email address, and the comment itself).
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 held about you, including any data you have provided. 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.

Not sure how much of the above applies, since there's no "account creation" feature specifically provided by this site. Once again, if you have any concerns - get in touch with me or Jetpack/Akismet.
