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.

If you fill out and submit a contact form, the information provided on the form is sent to us through e-mail. We only keep this information for as long as it takes to handle your issue. This information is never sold to anyone else.

Log Files

Like most sites on the web, we collect log file data. This includes information such as IP (Internet Protocol) address, your ISP (Internet Service Provider, such as Comcast, Verizon, AT&T, or similar), the browser you used to visit our site (Such as Explorer, Chrome, Firefox, etc.), the time you visited our site, and which pages you visited throughout our site.

Cookies

Cookies are small files that get stored on a user’s browser. They can be read by the user computer and store data (such as shopping cart contents or web site preferences). Also, cookies can store data related to ads or user activity on a web site, among other things.

WOODWORKINGSTREET.com uses third party advertisements to support our site. Some of these advertisers, including Google,  may use cookies to serve ads based on a user’s prior visits to this website or other websites (For example, a site about Woodworking might use Google Ad services. After you visit that site, you might see ads about Woodworking on a different site that shows ads served by Google.)

Google’s use of advertising cookies enables it and its partners to serve ads based on your visit to this site and/or other sites on the Internet.

Users may opt-out of personalized advertising by visiting Ads Settings (Alternatively, you can opt-out of a third-party vendor’s use of cookies for personalized advertising by visiting https://www.aboutads.info.). In addition, you can turn off cookies through the use of Internet Security Programs or with Browser Settings.

However, this may affect how you can interact with our site and with other websites (As examples, you might need to log in again, your website preferences might not be preserved from one session to another,  and your shopping cart might be empty).

If you leave a comment on our site you may opt-in to save 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 have an account and you log in to this site, 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.

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.
