Who we are
Our website address is: https://romneyridgefarm.com. We, and our writers, provide informational and educational content on arts, crafts, embroidery, gardening, homesteading, and other topics to our readership.
What personal data we collect and why
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.
If you enter your information into a contact form on our site, that email address will be recorded. Your contact information is never shared with 3rd parties. You will only receive emails from us about relevant blog posts or offers if you chose to. Submitting contact or other personal information is not required to use this website.
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.
Some of our affiliate partners, such as Amazon, also use a “tracking cookie” if you click one of their links found on the site. This cookie does NOT identify you in anyway or record your personal information. It simply records that you arrived at that vendor’s site via our website. If you make a purchase at one of these partner sites, we may get a commission on the referred sale. This costs you nothing and it helps to support us and our writers.
We also have a partnership with Ezoic – who use behavior based and AI methods to display ads to you as you visit the website.
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.
We use Google analytics and Google does collect some non-identifying data about your visit. This information includes but is not limited to: the device you used to access the site, the duration of your visit, and other pages on the site you may have viewed.
We also use Clicky analytics who may gather some non-identifying information about you.
Who we share your data with
We do not share your data with anyone. We personally collect very little if any information about visitors unrelated to general analytics which gives us information about which articles are the most popular. However, Google may collect differing information and we have no control over their usage.
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.
You are free to delete your account and remove said information at any time.
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.
At present time, we do NOT have accounts on RomneyRidgeFarm. We don’t ask for personal information or contact information of any kind or store your data.
Where we send your data
Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.
Your contact information
If you chose to give your contact information to stay in touch with us it will not be shared with a 3rd party. You will only get emails from us regarding new content, and you are free to unsubscribe from those mailings at any time. If you wish to unsubscribe, scroll to the bottom of a message you’ve received from us and click “unsubscribe”. You will be removed from the list and not be bothered again.
How we protect your data
We protect your data by not collecting it in the first place. However, our site is also protected by Cloudflare and robust web infrastructure.
What third parties we receive data from
Clicky Analytics and Google analytics gathers data for us on basic visitor behaviors such as session length, pages viewed, etc.
