In an era where online interactions have become an integral part of our daily lives, websites must prioritize and safeguard the privacy of their users. This Privacy Policy outlines the measures taken by FCSeattle.org to protect the data collected from visitors and users. By using FCSeattle.org, you agree to the terms and practices described in this policy.

Website Information

Our website address is https://fcseattle.org. Committed to providing entertainment, celebrity, and the latest news from around the globe.

Comments

When visitors leave comments on the site, the website collects data to enhance user experience and prevent spam. The collected data includes information provided in the comments form, the visitor’s IP address, and the browser user agent string.

An anonymized string, generated from the email address (hash), may be provided to the Gravatar service to identify users utilizing it. The Gravatar service’s privacy policy is available here. Once a comment is approved, the user’s profile picture becomes visible to the public alongside their comment.

Media

Users uploading images to the website are advised to avoid including embedded location data (EXIF GPS). Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the site.

Cookies

Cookies are employed for user convenience. When leaving a comment, users may opt-in to save their name, email address, and website in cookies, eliminating the need to re-enter details for subsequent comments. These cookies persist for one year.

Additionally:

  • A temporary cookie is set on the login page to determine if the browser accepts cookies, which is discarded upon closing the browser.
  • Upon logging in, cookies are established to save login information and screen display choices. Login cookies last for two days, while screen options cookies last for a year. Selecting “Remember Me” extends the login persistence to two weeks.
  • Editing or publishing an article triggers an additional cookie, containing no personal data, indicating the post ID of the edited article. This cookie expires after 1 day.

Embedded Content from Other Websites

Articles on this site may include embedded content (videos, images, articles) behaving similarly to visits to the originating website. These embedded elements may collect data, use cookies, and employ third-party tracking.

Data Sharing

If a user requests a password reset, their IP address is included in the reset email.

Data Retention

For comments, the data is retained indefinitely to facilitate the automated recognition and approval of follow-up comments. User profiles, for registered website users, store personal information that users can manage, with administrators having the capability to edit such information.

User Rights

Users with an account on this site or those who have left comments can request an exported file of their personal data. They may also request the erasure of their personal data, excluding data required for administrative, legal, or security purposes.

Data Processing

Visitor comments may undergo automated spam detection services to ensure the website’s integrity.

This Privacy Policy is designed to inform users about the collection, use, and protection of their data, fostering a secure and transparent online environment. Visitors are encouraged to review this policy periodically for updates.
