Who we are
My name is Vlad Costea and I am the creator and main content creator of the Bitcoin Takeover website (from now on, it shall be referred to as “the website”).
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.
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 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, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.
Who we share your data with
Data includes your IP address, the amount of time you spend on the website, the e-mail address that you use to leave a comment or subscribe to the newsletter, the content that you view, and the media files that you open.
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 will be checked through the Akismet automated spam detection service.
To stay in touch with the latest content on the website, you can subscribe with your e-mail address. For as long as you stay subscribed, I will have access to your e-mail address, as well as the full name you choose to display.
The service is handled through the Newsletter plugin, and you will receive updates for as long as you stay subscribed. In this regard, you are free to unsubscribe at any time you want. Some general statistics about the newsletters you open may be processed by the plugin service.
If you request it, I can also delete all of your data.
How we protect your data
I comply with all of the provisions of GDPR and do my best to protect your privacy. So if you ever need me to remove your data, please write me an e-mail at vlad [at] bitcoin-takeover [dot] com
