What personal data we collect and why we collect it

Contact forms

The information you submit via contact forms on this webpage will not be shared with others unless you agree to by checking the “Terms of service” box. When submitting information via the contact forms on this webpage a confirmation email will be sent to you with the information you submit. An email containing the information will also be sent to the administrator of the website. Your email will not be shared with anyone. Personal data does not include specific informaion about a boulder problem reported via the contact form “Report new problems”.

Regarding the “Report new problems” contact form the Terms of Service are as follows:

——

All the information you submit, besides your email address, in this contact form “Report new problems” will be used for a possible future update of the bouldering guidebook, either in printed or electronic form, or be uploaded to a bouldering topo website such as but not limited to www.27crags.com. The information can also be shared with a third party. Your email address will not be shared with anyone in this process. Your email address will only be used if further information regarding the reported boulder problem is needed. In that case you will be contacted. All information you submit in this contact form, including your email address, is stored on the servers of the form provider CaptainForm (https://www.captainform.com/terms-of-service/) and on the servers for this website (www.arcticcirclebouldering.com). All information submitted in this contact form “Report new problems”, including your email address, will also be sent by email to the administrator of this website for storage, but only the information regarding the reported boulder problem and not your email address will be stored outside the administrators email server. We highly recommend that you delete personal data and location data from the meta data of a picture if you choose to upload one. Deleting meta data from any uploaded pictures is your sole responsibility.

Contact form antispam services

Data Used: If Akismet is enabled on the site, the contact form submission data — IP address, user agent, name, email address, website, and message — is submitted to the Akismet service (also owned by Automattic ( Please review the Automattic Privacy Policy)) for the sole purpose of spam checking. The actual submission data is stored in the database of the site on which it was submitted and is emailed directly to the owner of the form (i.e. the site author who published the page on which the contact form resides). This email will include the submitter’s IP address, timestamp, name, email address, website, and message.

Data Synced: Post and post meta data associated with a user’s contact form submission. If Akismet is enabled on the site, the IP address and user agent originally submitted with the comment are synced, as well, as they are stored in post meta.

Analytics

I analyze the traffic on this site via WordPress.com Stats via the Jetpack plugin. What data and how it is handled is specified below

WordPress.com Stats

Data Used: IP address, WordPress.com user ID (if logged in), WordPress.com username (if logged in), user agent, visiting URL, referring URL, timestamp of event, browser language, country code. Important: The site owner (Rasmus Bølling) does not have access to any of this information via this feature. For example, a site owner can see that a specific post has 285 views, but he/she cannot see which specific users/accounts viewed that post. Stats logs — containing visitor IP addresses and WordPress.com usernames (if available) — are retained by Automattic for 28 days and are used for the sole purpose of powering this feature.

Activity Tracked: Post and page views, video plays (if videos are hosted by WordPress.com), outbound link clicks, referring URLs and search engine terms, and country. When this module is enabled, Jetpack also tracks performance on each page load that includes the JavaScript file used for tracking stats. This is exclusively for aggregate performance tracking across Jetpack sites in order to make sure that our plugin and code is not causing performance issues. This includes the tracking of page load times and resource loading duration (image files, JavaScript files, CSS files, etc.). The site owner has the ability to force this feature to honor DNT settings of visitors. By default, DNT is currently not honored.

What rights you have over your data
