If you leave a comment on the page, you can choose to save your name, email address and website in so-called cookies. This is for your convenience so you don’t have to type this information again when you leave other comments on the site. These cookies are saved and stored for 12 months.
If you have access and log in to the site, a temporary cookie is set up to check if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal information and is discarded when you close your browser.
When you log in, some cookies are also installed to save your login information and screen menus. Such login cookies last for 48 hours and display cookies last for 12 months. If you select “Remember me”, the login will be active for two weeks. When you log out of the account, the login cookies are removed.
If you publish or edit an article, an additional cookie is saved in the browser. That cookie contains no personal information but only the ID of the article you edited and expires after 24 hours.
When you leave a comment on the page, Vaka collects and stores the data entered in the comment form. The same applies to IP address and browser type information for the purpose of assisting in the analysis of spam transmissions.
You are always responsible for images and other files you submit to the company’s website. When sharing data in this way, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) as visitors to the site can then download the location data from the images to them. The same applies to other files, to check that metadata associated with files is deleted or removed.
IV. A message
If you send a message through the page’s message and mail forms, Vaka collects and stores the data entered there. The same applies to the sender’s IP address and browser type information for the purpose of assisting in the analysis of spam transmissions.
V. Embedded Content from Other Websites
Articles on this site may contain embedded content from other websites (eg videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves the same as if you were visiting that particular site.
VI. With whom the data is shared
VII. Where is data sent?
In addition to what is stated above, user-written comments are occasionally sent to automated spam filters for approval and analysis.
VIII. How long is the data stored?
If you leave a comment, it, as well as its metadata, including information about the author, is saved for the lifetime of the page or until that information is deleted manually. This is done so that later posted comments from you can be recognized and automatically approved instead of being queued for manual approval by a system administrator.
For those users who register in the user area of Vaka’s website, personal information provided by the user in the user profile, such as name and email address, is stored. All users can at any time see, change or delete their personal information (except they cannot change their username). Site administrators can also see and change this information, except for the password, which is only visible to the user in question. However, a system administrator can change a user’s password.
IX. What rights do you have over the data?
If you have a user account on this site or have left comments, you can request to receive a record of personal information stored about you, including any information you have provided on the site. You can also request that all personally identifiable data stored about you on the site be deleted. However, this does not include information that the company is required to keep, as required by law or regulations.
X. Your Acceptance of These Terms
By using this site, you acknowledge and agree to these terms. If you disagree with the above terms, do not use the site staging.vaka.is or register as a user of the site.
