Privacy Policy

This page discloses the information gathering and dissemination practices for the spotlightwp.com website.

Information Automatically Logged

This website uses various web analytics tools (such as Google Analytics), other measurement tools, as well as support tools (such as HelpScout) to help analyze how users use the site and to provide support services. These tools use ‘cookies’, which are text files placed on your computer, to collect standard internet log information and visitor behavior information in an anonymous form. The information generated by the cookie about your use of the website (including your IP address) is transmitted to Google and sometimes other vendors. This information is then used to evaluate visitors’ use of the website and to compile statistical reports on website activity for spotlightwp.com

We will never (and will not allow any third party to) use the statistical analytics tool to track or to collect any personally identifiable information of visitors to our site. The Web Analytics vendors do not associate your IP address with any other data held by them. Neither we nor the Web Analytics Vendors will link, or seek to link, an IP address with the identity of a computer user. We will not associate any data gathered from this site with any personally identifying information from any source unless you explicitly submit that information via a fill-in form on our website.

First Party APIs

Some of our products use APIs provided by us and hosted on our own servers. These APIs typically enable features in our products and as such may require information from the site where the product is installed. Any and all personally identifiable information is volatile; it is kept on our servers only for the duration of the communication between the product and our server, and never passed on to any third parties.

The only information that may be logged by our servers are those pertaining to the request itself, such as IP addresses, date, time and user-agent string. This information is only ever used by us when analyzing server health and up-time, or in the event of excessive use of our servers by a few select users. These logs use a “rolling” space allocation, meaning that the logs are eventually automatically deleted from our servers to make space for more recent logs, typically at a period of a couple of months.

Third Party APIs

Our products utilize, and are enabled by, various third party APIs such as those from Facebook and Instagram. Any data retrieved using these APIs is strictly restricted to the site on which our products our installed. This data is stored in the MySQL or MariaDB database that is used by the site where the product is installed. Our products will never expose, send or process any such data, nor will they attempt to deduce any further data from it, whether it can be personally identifiable or otherwise.

While our products adhere to this policy, any third party APIs used by our products may collect usage data. You can visit the Data Policy pages from the individual API vendors for more information about how these APIs may collect or use your data.

Media

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.

Freemius Services

We sell our product(s) using Freemius secure checkout, which enables secure online payments, licensing, fulfillment, and more. The service automatically adds cookies when a user opens the checkout. Those are essential cookies for security, fraud detection & prevention, and completion of a purchase. There’s no way to check out without letting the service use cookies. 

Here’s a link to the Freemius privacy policy and its checkout cookie policy. If you wish to opt-out of Freemius’ cookies setting please go to their cookie policy and follow their opt-out instructions.

Disabling and Enabling Cookies

You have the ability to accept or decline cookies by modifying the settings on your browser or by using the options on our website. Click here to learn more about cookie policy.

External Links

This site may contain (affiliate) links to other sites. Spotlightwp.com and its authors are not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of such websites.

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.

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.

Personal Information

When you fill in a contact form anywhere on our site or comment on a blog post, we ask for your name & email address (and possibly other details relevant to your request). This information is only used to contact you back about your specific request.

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.

When you buy a product, we will ask for your name and email address, and we might gain some other information like your website’s URL through the activation of the product’s license key. All this information is stored on our secure servers and is not used at any time, unless at your specific written request.

Your email and any other information will only be used to contact you about updates on Spotlight and for other promotional material if you choose to opt-in to the option titled “Sign up for the latest news and updates” at checkout.

Your personal information will not be distributed to anyone for any purpose.

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 may be checked through an automated spam detection service.

Security

This site has security measures in place to protect the loss, misuse, and alteration of the information under our control.
