Privacy Policy

Welcome to Web Times Website, our website address is https://webtimes.com.ng/. We are committed to protecting the privacy of our users and visitors. In this article, we explain the data we collect, why we collect it, and how we use it.

Comments:

When you leave a comment on our website, we collect the information you provide in the comments form, including your name, email address, and website URL. We also collect your IP address and browser user agent string to help us identify and prevent spam.

If you have a Gravatar account, an anonymized string created from your email address may be provided to the Gravatar service to see if you are using it. Once your comment is approved, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.

Media:

We advise our users to avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) as visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the website.

Cookies:

If you leave a comment on our site, you may opt-in to save your name, email address, and website in cookies. These cookies are for your convenience, so you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies 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 does not contain any personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.

When you log in, we will 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 one day.

Embedded content from other websites:

Articles on our website may include embedded content (e.g., videos, images, articles, etc.) from other websites. This embedded content behaves in the same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.

These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracking your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.

Sharing of Your Data:

We do not share your data with any third-party companies or organizations unless required by law.

Data Retention:

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.

Your Rights:

If you have an account on our 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 Your Data is Sent:

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