Privacy Policy

Who we are

Our website address is: https://japaneveryday.jp.

What personal data we collect

Comments

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. The Gravatar service privacy policy is available here: https://automattic.com/privacy/. After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.

Membership

Membership on the Japan Everyday site is optional. If you choose to join as a member, you will need to provide information about yourself to Patreon, the platform used to manage memberships. We don’t have access to most of that data, including your payment details, but we do get to see basic identity details like your name and email address. If you want more information, see Patreon’s Privacy Policy here: https://privacy.patreon.com/policies

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 are selected as a guest author or other collaborator, you may be given an account on our site (separate from the membership system). 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 to your collaboration account, 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.

Who we share your data with

We do not share your personal data with any third parties.

Your personal data and advertisers

We may include advertisements on this site. Although we are sharing their public information with you by displaying such ads, we do not share your personal information with them.

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 collaborators who have accounts on our site (separate from the membership system), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All collaborators 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.

If you joined Japan Everyday as a member, your membership account is managed by Patreon. Visit https://privacy.patreon.com/policies to learn more about your rights concerning data stored in their systems.

Where we send your data

Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.
