What personal data we collect and why we collect it

Contact Forms

We collect and store information including your name, email address and the message. We use this data to contact the user regarding their inquiry.

Cookies

A cookie is a string of information that a website stores on a visitor’s computer, and that the visitor’s browser provides to the website each time the visitor returns. SynthesiaManiac uses cookies to help identify and track visitors, their usage of the SynthesiaManiac website, and their website access preferences. Visitors who do not wish to have cookies placed on their computers should set their browsers to refuse cookies before using the website, with the drawback that certain features of the website may not function properly without the aid of 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.

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.

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 tracing your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.

Analytics

SynthesiaManiac uses Google Analytics with anonymized IP.  We collect cookies and usage data to analyze website performance and access preferences. User and event data are stored for 26 months and will be purged automatically.

Donations

We collect information about you during the donation process on our website. This information may include, but is not limited to, your name, address, phone number, credit card/payment details and any other details that might be requested from you for the purpose of processing your donations.

Handling this data allows us to:

  1. Send you important account/donation/service information.
  2. Respond to your queries, refund requests or complaints.
  3. Process payments and prevent fraudulent transactions. We do this on the basis of our legitimate organizational interests.

Additionally, we may also collect the following information:

  • Your donor comments if you choose to leave them on our website.
  • Cookies which are essential to keep track of your donation history whilst your session is active. This allows you to access your donation receipt without being a registered, logged in user.

Who we share your data with

We send cookies and usage data to Google Analytics for performance analysis and to view access preferences. Information collected for the donation process including name, address, phone number, credit card/payment details and any other details that might be requested from you are sent to PayPal for the purpose of processing your donations. All other collected data from contact forms and other site features remains stored in a WordPress database on the website server.

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.

We store user and event data collected for Google Analytics for 26 months, after which time it is purged automatically.

We store cookies and user information used to process donations until the end of the session, unless the user chooses to create an account. In which case, your name, address, email and phone number will be stored to populate the donation form in future transactions and the data will be store until the user requests deletion.

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.
