Who we are
“Personal Information” means that any information related to you, “the Individual.” An individual is identifiable if it is possible to identify him or her, whether directly or indirectly. For the purpose of business operations, we may request the following types of personally identifiable information: name, email address, telephone number, address, fax numbers, and other information about your company, professional experience, skillsets, etc.
What personal data we collect and why we collect it
We collect personal data from users and site visitors. This may include personal data, such as name, email address, personal account preferences; transactional data, such as purchase information; and technical data, such as information about cookies.
Personal data is not just created by a user’s interactions with our site. Personal data is also generated from technical processes such as contact forms, comments, cookies, analytics, and third party embeds.
By default WordPress does not collect any personal data about our users and site visitors, and only collects the data shown on the User Profile screen from registered users. However some of our plugins (contact forms) may collect personal data.
