At WarmHeartBears.com, we respect your right to privacy and your requirements to control personal information. “Personal information” includes, but is not limited to, name, address, telephone number and e-mail address. WarmHeartBears.com does not sell, rent, swap or otherwise disclose any personal information. The intent of this Privacy Statement is to inform users of our internet sites including WarmHeartBears.com, and on how the site collects, stores and uses personal information submitted via the site.

Collection of Information

No software or hardware techniques are employed to capture a visitor’s e-mail address without their knowledge. Certain forms on WarmHeartBears.com including newsletter sign-ups and contact forms may invite users to submit information including their name and email address. This information is stored until you unsubscribe from our mailing list. Such personal information is not shared or sold to third parties.

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 at https://automattic.com/privacy/. After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.

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 unless you delete your cookies.

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.

Links to content from other websites

Our site includes links to other websites whose privacy policies we don’t control. Once you leave our servers (you can check where you are by checking the URL in the location bar on your browser), use of any information you provide is governed by the privacy policy of the operator of the site you are visiting. That policy may differ from ours. If you can’t find the privacy policy of any of these sites via a link from the site’s homepage, you should contact the site directly for more information. WarmHeartBears.com is not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of such websites.

Collection and Use of Statistical Information

When you connect to our website, WarmHeartBears.com may automatically collect technical, non-personal information. Examples include the type of Internet browser used, your computer operating system, etc. This information is used to help ensure our site is effective and help develop opportunities to improve the site in the future. These statistics do not contain personal information related to website users.

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 obligated to keep for administrative, legal or security purposes.

If you need to change or correct any personal information provided to us, or wish to have all personal information we have collected removed from our files, please contact us and we will take reasonable steps to comply with your request.

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.

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