Who We Are and Contact us

Maumbit is a personal blog which helps public aggregating useful contents for peace-making. For questions or concerns about our privacy policy, or to request the removal of, or a change to, your personal information, contact us.

What personal data we collect and why we collect it

Comments

When visitors leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help 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

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.

Contact forms

If you contact us via contact us page or subscribe to Maumbit, we collect the data shown in the contact form (Name, Email Address), and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.

Cookies

If you leave a comment on our site you may opt-in to saving your name, email address and website in cookies. These are for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies will 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 contains no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.

When you log in, we will also 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 1 day.

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.

Analytics

We use cookies and Google Analytics’ 3rd-party audience data such as age, gender to:

  • Better understand the behaviour of our users
  • Compile aggregate data about site traffic and interactions to offer better site experiences and tools in the future
  • Help remember and process the items in your shopping cart (if any)

Newsletter & emails

If you have subscribed to our newsletter or if you are a member of our website (if you can log in) there is a good chance you will receive emails from us.

We will only send you emails which you have signed up to receive, or which pertain to the services we provided to you.

To send you emails, we use the name and email address you provide us. Our site also logs the IP address you used when you signed up for the service to prevent abuse of the system.

This website can send emails through the MailPoet sending service. This service allows us to track opens and clicks on our emails. We use this information to improve the content of our newsletters.

No identifiable information is otherwise tracked outside this website except for the email address.

Who we share your data with

Data at Maumbit is not shared with or sold to any third party.

Maumbit and its contractors have access to users data for the purpose of providing services.

No personal identifiable data is stored on Maumbit’s staff or contractor computers on a permanent basis. Contractors are requested to delete this data at the end of their mission.

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. Maumbit will keep identifiable data for an undetermined amount of time or until the user asks us to anonymise and / or delete his / her data.

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.

How we protect your data

Maumbit uses Hypertext Transfer Protocol Secure or HTTPS. HTTPS is the secure version of HTTP, the protocol over which data is sent between your browser and the website that you are connected to. The ‘S’ at the end of HTTPS stands for ‘Secure’, meaning all communications between your browser and the website are encrypted. Your personal information is also contained behind secured networks. In addition, all sensitive/credit information you supply is encrypted via Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology.

Changes to our Privacy Policy

Maumbit reserves the right to change this Privacy Policy at any time without notice to you. Any changes will be effective immediately upon the posting of the revised Privacy Policy. Maumbit will not, however, use your Personal Information without your consent in a manner materially different from what was stated at the time it was collected.

Advertisement and Affiliate Disclosure

Maumbit currently does not have any Affiliate or Advertisement program, which means we do not earn any commission or fee from the sales or clicks etc that happened via our website. In the case Maumbit has decided to participate any of Advertisement or Affiliate programs, we will update this privacy notice prior to any program.
