Who we are
Our website address is: https://wpcollective.net. We are located in San Diego, California, USA.
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.
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. After approval of your comment, your Gravatar profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment when you use Gravatar. No image of you is shown if you do not have a Gravatar account.
If you upload images to any website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Visitors to that website can download and extract any location data from images on the website. This site does not have a method for you to upload images.
The contact form in use on this site does not store any information you provide when you use one of our forms. User cookies are not needed because the form plugin does not come with the ability to store form entries.
You can change your cookie preferences in your own browser (check Security or Privacy preferences). Note that blocking some types of cookies may impact your experience on our website and the services we are able to offer.
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, testimonials, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.
We may use Google Analytics to track internet traffic to our site and between site pages. Other than your IP address, no personally identifiable information is stored.
Who we share your data with
This site may send your data to our content delivery network (Cloudflare), or payment processors such as Paypal, Stripe or MindBodyOnline, if you use a form on our site. If you click a link and are simply sent to these sites to process a payment, then no identifiable information is sent to them or retained by us. We share form information to retain a record of a purchase, and to process the payment with the vendor.
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.
This website does not allow for user registration.
If it did, for users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All registered 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 such as a record of a purchase you make on our site (if applicable).
Where we send your data
Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service. We may use Akismet to prevent spam comments. Akismet compares your IP address with a list of spam IP addresses and will not publish your comments on the site if your IP matches one on the spam list. The information collected typically includes the commenter’s IP address, user agent, referrer, and Site URL (along with other information directly provided by the commenter such as their name, username, email address, and the comment itself).
This site uses a Content Delivery Network to provide files to your browser (Cloudflare) so you can see and use the site. The CDN does not store information about you, but it does act as a pass-through when you send a contact form through the site.
How we protect your data
This website is encrypted using secure socket layers (SSL), a form of data encryption, to ensure the privacy of all Internet communications. All data passed between your computer, our website or any third party vendor is encrypted. We take the following measures to help protect your sensitive Personal Information: we secure all passwords with a one-way password hashing function; we use SSL (Secure Socket Layer) when collecting any information (SSL is a standard security technology for establishing an encrypted connection between a server and a client); we never store credit card numbers on our servers (credit card numbers are stored directly by the payment gateway); we never ask for, nor will we accept, payment information via email (payment information may only be submitted via an SSL encrypted billing system). In addition, we may require written authorization from you before communicating with third parties about your account.
What data breach procedures we have in place
If the website and/or your data is breached, we will notify you of any personal information that may have been transmitted, as soon as we are aware of the breach.
What third parties we receive data from
If this site uses Google Analytics, we may receive information about your visit to our site in a non-identifiable way. If we use a shopping cart and your payment is processed through the site, we receive data from the payment processor about whether or not the sale was successful.
What automated decision making and/or profiling we do with user data
This site does not use any automated decision-making or profiling software.

For health care providers, including therapists, acupuncturists, psychiatrists, masseurs, doctors and nurse practitioners, any information regarding your health or medical condition must meet HIPAA requirements for privacy using encryption.
