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.
We use a contact form which collects your name and email. We keep this information on file for customer service purposes. This data is not used for marketing purposes.
Our website uses Google Analytics, a service which transmits website traffic data to Google servers in the United States. Google Analytics does not identify individual users or associate your IP address with any other data held by Google. We use reports provided by Google Analytics to help us understand website traffic and webpage usage.
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.
Scoop Club is committed to ensuring that your information is secure. The website uses Let’s Encrypt Authority X3 SSL certificate.

In order to prevent unauthorised access or disclosure, suitable physical, electronic and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information collected online are in place.

Overall, cookies help me provide you with a better website, by enabling us to monitor which pages you find useful and which you do not. You can choose to accept or decline cookies.
