Who we are
Our website address is: https://cass-e.net.
What personal data we collect and why we collect it
When visitors leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.
If you upload images to the website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the website.
When you contact us through our contact form, it sends us an email with the details you enter. We do not store any of the information on the website.
In order to prevent bots from spamming our contact form, we use hCaptcha®. You can find their policies here, and as links on the hCaptcha® button when it appears.
E-Mails & MailPoet Newsletters
If you have subscribed to our newsletter or left comments here, you may have subscribed to email messages from this site.
We will only send you emails which you have signed up to receive, or which pertain to the services we provided to you.
To send you emails, we use the email address you provide us and a name/nickname if you have provided it. Our site also logs the IP address you used when you signed up for the service to prevent abuse of the system.
We presently do not use an external sending service, nor do we use E-Mail tracking. We reserve the right to change this in the future for the following reasons. If we decide to change this, we will notify you two weeks beforehand via E-Mail in order to provide you opportunity to unsubscribe and/or voice your dissaproval.
- Not using an E-Mail sending service like MailPoet Send increases the likelihood our emails are seen as spam by mail providers, and being filtered out of mailboxes
- Not using E-Mail tracking means that we won't know if you stop reading our emails. Continuing to send people emails even when they aren't read increases the likelihood they will be seen as spam

At this time, we use the WordPress plugin Koko Analytics on our website to measure key figures that are important to us, such as the number of visitors and page views.
We have configured Koko Analytics so that this measurement is carried out absolutely anonymously. Neither cookies are set nor is any personal data collected. A demo of Koko Analytics' collected data can be viewed on their website, and the source code is available here.

Who we share your data with
cass-e.net does not presently share personal data with any third party services. If we enable comments, these may be filtered for spam through an automated spam detection service like Akismet. We will update this policy to reflect this.
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. 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.
Your contact information
If you have any comments, questions, or you would like to exercise the rights listed above over your data, you can email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
How we protect your data
When you contact us either via the form on our Contact Page or direct email, your message is stored in our contact email.
What data breach procedures we have in place
If we become aware of a data breach, we will download all user data to a secure offline location and clear it from the server while we re-evaluate security measures. We will inform anyone who submitted data to us (if we have an email address to contact them with) that might have been compromised of the breach.
What third parties we receive data from
We do not presently receive any identifiable user data from third parties. We do use Search Consoles for Google & Bing which provide us with some analytics, but neither of these provide identifiable information.
