Who we are
At MyFirstRig, we are committed to protecting the privacy of our users. This policy outlines the types of personal information we collect, how we use and protect it, and the choices available to users regarding our use of the information.
We collect personal information when you create an account, please sign up for newsletter, participate in a survey, or use other features for the website. The types of information we may collect include:
- Email address
- Mailing address
- Phone number
- Payment information
- Order history
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.
Suggested text: 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.
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.
Who we share your data with
We do not sell or rent your personal information to third parties. We may share your information with third-party service providers who help us operate our business and provide services to you, such as payment processors and shipping companies.
We may also share your information in response to a legal request, such as subpoena, court order, or government request, or when we believe it is necessary to protect the safety, rights, or property of our company, our customers, or others.
We use industry-standard security measures to protect the information we collect, including encryption and secure servers. However, no method of transmission or storage is 100% secure, and we cannot guarantee the security of your information.
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.
Changes to This Policy
We may update this policy from time to time to reflect changes in our practices or legal requirements. If we make any material changes, we will notify you by posting the revised policy on our website.
This policy is effective as of 1st Jan 2023.
