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 have an account and you log in to this site, 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.

These 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

Common social media sites may provide access to your external and publicly view-able data such as comments and posts. No internal data such as your personal information used to register on the site will ever be released. If it is court ordered then a filing will be made to have as much information redacted as possible. However, if this is not possible and we have to follow the law you are permitted to contact us ahead of the turn over of data to request it is redacted and cite your rights to privacy directly in an email to zin@zinrockin.com

Any government requests for data will be announced in a post on the website so you have time to request what info you would like redacted from our report.

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. Please contact zin@zinrockin.com if you would like to request a file containing what data is available to us about you.

Where we send your data

No where but the name-cheap hosting servers.

Your contact information

It is not requested aside from your email address and username. This is not released to anyone at all ever.

How we protect your data

We don’t have to because all data is between you and the hosting services for this website.

What data breach procedures we have in place

Please refer to the NameCheap privacy policy.
