What personal data we collect and why we collect it
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.
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.
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.
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
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.
Like most website operators, CT Talks collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. CT Talks’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how CT Talks.com’s visitors use its website. From time to time, CT Talks may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
CT Talks also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses. CT Talks does not use such information to identify its visitors, however, and does not disclose such information, other than under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information, as described below.
Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information
Certain visitors to CT Talks’s website choose to interact with CT Talks in ways that require CT Talks to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that CT Talks gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who register for an account to provide a username and email address. Those who engage in transactions with CT Talks – by purchasing our plugins, for example – are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information
required to process those transactions. In each case, CT Talks collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with CT Talks.
CT Talks does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. Visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying
information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.
CT Talks may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. For instance, CT Talks may monitor plugin downloads or number of comments. CT Talks may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, CT Talks does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.
Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information
CT Talks discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on CT Talks’s behalf or to provide services available at CT Talks’s websites, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others.
Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using CT Talks’s website, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. CT Talks will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone.
Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, CT Talks discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when CT Talks believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property
or rights of CT Talks, third parties or the public at large.
If you are a registered user of a CT Talks website and have supplied your email address, CT Talks may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what’s going on with CT Talks and our products. We primarily use our blog to communicate this type of information, so we expect
to keep this type of email to a minimum.
If you send us a request (for example via a support email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we
reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. CT Talks takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.

If CT Talks, or substantially all of its assets, were acquired, or in the unlikely event that CT Talks goes out of business or enters bankruptcy, user information would be one of the assets that is transferred or acquired by a third party.
