Who We Are
To visit us online, please go to https://californiaexaminer.net.
We use the information provided by the commenter (IP address, user agent string, etc.) to help us detect spam and verify the commenter’s identity.
To check if you are utilizing the Gravatar service, your email address may be hashed and then used to generate an anonymous string. The privacy guidelines for the Gravatar service can be viewed at https://automattic.com/privacy/. Once your remark has been approved, your profile image will appear alongside it.
Avoid adding photos to the site that have embedded location data (EXIF GPS) if at all possible. Site visitors get full access to any of the photographs on the website, and can save or extract any geotagged data they desire.
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 for your ease of use to prevent you from having to re-enter information on subsequent comments. The shelf life of these cookies is 12 months.
When you go to our login page, we’ll use a cookie to remember if your browser is set up to accept cookies. No personally identifiable information is stored in this cookie and it is deleted as soon as the browser is closed.
Several cookies will be created when you login; these will be used to remember things like your login information and the customizations you’ve made to the way the site looks. Cookies used for logging in expire after 24 hours, whereas those used for customizing the display remain valid for an entire year. If you check the box labeled “Remember Me,” your login information will be saved for 14 days. When you log out, the system deletes the login cookies.
To keep track of any changes you make to articles before publishing them, another cookie will be placed in your browser. This cookie contains no personally identifiable information and merely indicates the ID of the post you have just modified. After 24 hours, it’s useless.
Embedded content from other websites
In some of the articles presented here, you will find a format known as “embedded content” (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.
In addition to collecting information about you, using cookies, and embedding additional third-party tracking, these sites may also monitor your interaction with the embedded content, which may include tracking your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to the relevant site.
Your IP address will be included in the password reset email if you request one.
How long we retain your data
The remark and associated metadata will be stored indefinitely if you leave one. This way, any subsequent comments will be instantly approved upon detection, eliminating the need for a moderation queue.
We also collect and keep the personal information users supply in their user profiles if they want to register on our website. User profiles are completely editable and removable at the user’s discretion (except they cannot change their username). Administrators of the site have access to all of this data as well.
What rights do you have over your data
If you have an account here or have posted comments, you can ask to be provided with an exported file of the personal data we possess about you, including any data you have provided to us. You have the right to have us delete any information we have collected from you. Not included are records that we are required to maintain for reasons of administration, law, or security.
