Who we are
Our website address is: https://tattoospunch.com.
We gather the data provided in the comments form, as well as the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to aid spam identification when a remark is left on the site.
In order to verify your Gravatar account, your email address may be hashed and then used to generate an anonymous string.
You may see Gravatar’s privacy guidelines here: https://automattic.com/privacy/.
Once your remark has been approved, your profile image will appear next to it.
Avoid adding photos to the site that have embedded location data (EXIF GPS) if at all possible. Location data embedded in uploaded photographs is freely available for download and analysis by site visitors.
You can choose to have your name, email address, and website saved in cookies if you post a comment on our site. These are provided so that you don’t have to re-enter your information every time you want to post a remark. The shelf life of these cookies is 12 months.
To find out if your browser is cookie-enabled, we’ll need to save some information about your visit to our login page in a temporary cookie. No personally identifiable information is stored in this cookie and it is deleted as soon as the browser is closed.
In addition to saving your login details and display preferences in cookies, several cookies will be set up when you log in. Cookies used for logging in expire after 24 hours, whereas those for customizing the user interface remain valid for a whole year. Selecting “Remember Me” will keep you logged in for 14 days. When you log out, the system deletes the login cookies.
Another cookie will be saved in your browser if you go back and modify or publish the content. There is no personally identifiable information stored in this cookie; it merely reflects the ID of the post that you have just modified. After 1 day, it’s no longer valid.
Embedded content from other websites
Embedded materials are sometimes used in the articles on this site (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). When a user interacts with an embedded object, their experience is the same as if they had actually visited the external website.
It’s possible that these sites will track your activity on the embedded material, if you have an account and are logged in to the site in question, as well as collect data about you via cookies, additional third-party tracking, and monitoring.
Who we share your data with
If you request a password reset, your IP address will be included in the reset email.
How long we retain your data
The comment you leave together with its metadata will be stored eternally. This way, any subsequent comments will be instantly approved upon detection, eliminating the need for a moderation queue.
Our website also maintains a database containing the personally identifiable information of users who choose to register with us. Users have complete control over their profile information and can view, amend, or delete it at any time (except they cannot change their username). Webmasters have access to that data as well, and can make changes as needed.

You have the right to have us delete any information we have collected on you.
There is an exception for data that we are required to store for administrative, legal, or security purposes.
