What personal data we collect and why we collect it

Comments
Our experience at ImagenationIT.net, TheOpenSourcery.com, and ThePhotoFinishes.com is that spam comments out number legitimate ones by at least 10 to 1. This is true even with Spam Suppressing plugins in place. When visitors leave a legitimate comment on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form, plus the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help with 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 here: https://automattic.com/privacy/. After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.

Media

Users are not allowed to upload images to the website.

Contact forms

Within the next quarter, an active Contact Form and Optin service soliciting email address for our newsletter will be inaugurated. There is currently no active contact form information or database. When that database gets created it will NOT be shared with 3rd parties or stored offsite.

Cookies

ImagenationIT.net currently does not use cookies.

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. ImagenationIT.net currently uses Vimeo, YouTube, SQLFiddle, CodePen, GitHub and JSFiddle. ImagenationIT may use other 3rd party services and  will respond to any complaints about the current or future 3rd party services.

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

Analytics

ImagenationIT.net uses WPStatistics and Google Analytics which extensively track usage of the website – pages visited, duration of stay, etc. ImagenationIT does not share that information directly with third parties; but like other 3rd party vendors Google and WP Statistics may share tracked info – see their respective privacy policies. We are awaiting updates on privacy policy from both providers.
