DivCom Privacy Policy

DiviCom Privacy in a nutshell

This privacy policy, and any GDPR compliance requirements, may (and probably will be) updated at any time. We will keep you notified!

The Divi Community (DiviCom), located at https://divicommunity.com, is a social and forum community site focused on, and for the benefit of, users of the Divi and Extra themes for WordPress, along with products such as Bloom and Monarch. These themes and products are provided by and sold by Elegant Themes.

We do not, and will never, sell any of the information you provide to this site to any third party. We will keep you from being tracked as far as it is possible. We do not use social media ad tracking or anything else like that.

But, please be aware that this is a public site wherein you can opt to provide personal information that might become visible to any other viewers of this site. Much of the information you might provide is optional, but your information (such as the name you provide) will be public.

Email addresses and passwords are not publicly visible. You can choose to offer multiple contact points, or no contact points other than within the site, such as could be used with "mentions" or "replies".

Comments and Privacy

When visitors leave comments on this site, we necessarily collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection. In the case of DiviCom, this spam protection is provided by CleanTalk.

Your Avatar: 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/. If you didn't already know, Gravatar is an avatar service provided by WordPress (actually, its parent Automattic) for the sake of convenience to be used across sites.

After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment. You do not need to have a Gravatar account to provide a profile picture.

Media

If you upload images to the website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included if you are concerned about privacy. Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the website if you fail to remove it.

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.

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. Your screen display choices will also involve saving your "light/dark" theme color preferences. There is no personal information associated with these theme cookies.

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

You may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.) within the posts you make. Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website. We can't control this.

These outside 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.

Who we share your data with

If you request a password reset, your IP address will be included in the reset email. Otherwise, and by any means possible, we do not intentionally share your data with anyone else.

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, 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 registration data and comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service. As mentioned above, this spam and bot prevention service is provided by CleanTalk.
