Privacy Policy

Hey there! Welcome to Iron Egg, your go-to place for WordPress support for small business, website tech support, website support, WordPress hosting, and web security.

Let’s talk about comments

When you leave comments on our site, we gather the data from the comments form, plus your IP address and browser info, to help us crack down on spam. Don’t worry, we’re not snooping – it’s all in the name of keeping our website a safe place for everyone.

If you have a Gravatar account, we might create an anonymized string from your email address (a “hash”) to see if you’re using it. You can check out Gravatar’s privacy policy here: Once your comment is approved, your profile picture will be visible alongside your comment – it’s like your own mini billboard!

About Media

If you’re uploading images to our site, be sure to strip out any embedded location data (EXIF GPS) beforehand. Just a heads up – visitors can download and extract this info from images on the site.

Cookies, anyone?

When you leave a comment, you can choose to save your name, email address, and website in cookies, so you won’t have to retype them next time. This cookie stays fresh in your browser for a year.

When you visit our login page, we’ll drop a temporary cookie to see if your browser accepts them. This cookie is like a ghost – it doesn’t contain any personal data and vanishes when you close your browser.

Once you’re logged in, we’ll set up some cookies to save your login info and screen display choices. Login cookies stick around for two days, screen options cookies for a year. If you check “Remember Me”, we’ll remember you for two weeks. If you log out, the login cookies are history.

If you edit or publish an article, we’ll save an additional cookie in your browser. This cookie doesn’t hold any personal info – it just notes the post ID of the article you’ve edited. It goes stale after a day.

Embedded content from other websites

Our articles might include embedded content (like videos, images, articles, etc.). This content behaves as though you’re visiting the site it’s originally from.

These sites might gather data about you, use cookies, and track your interaction with the embedded content if you’re logged in to their site.

Who we share your data with

Your data is safe with us – we don’t share it with anyone else. If you need to reset your password, your IP address will be included in the reset email.

How long we retain your data

If you leave a comment, we keep the comment and its metadata forever. This way, we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically, instead of keeping them in a moderation queue.

For folks that register on our site, we store the personal info they provide in their user profile. You can see, edit, or delete your personal info at any time (but you can’t change your username). Our website admins can also see and edit that info.

Your rights over your data

If you have an account on this site, or have left comments, you can ask to receive an exported file of your personal data we hold, including any data you’ve given us. You can also ask us to erase any personal data we hold about you. This doesn’t include any data we have to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.

Where your data is sent

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

We appreciate you taking the time to read this. Please keep your comments and queries coming in English
