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.
Data submitted through our contact form will be stored on our servers and may be viewed by Drill Bit Guru staff.
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.
Drill Bit Guru is funded by commissions received from affiliate partners. When you click a link to a product page on a third party website, the details of this click may be stored for up to 24 hours to determine whether or not Drill Bit Guru is entitled to a commission for any subsequent purchases made. Third-party websites may also see that you were referred to their site from Drill Bit Guru.
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.
To help us improve the quality of service we offer, and the user experience of our site, we may use analytics tools such as Google Analytics.
These tools may collect and store data pertaining to your use of our website, including the pages you visit, search terms used, time spent on different pages, user country, user city, and other data-points.
Data collected by analytics tools is anonymized and cannot be directly associated with a specific user.
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.
