What personal data we collect and why we collect it


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 anonymised 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: After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.


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

When you complete our contact forms, you do provide your name and email address. We collect such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with Albinna. We may keep the information submitted in the form for a period of 12 month for customer service purposes, but we do not use the information submitted through the forms for marketing purposes.


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.


We do track website usage via Lara’s analytics. The analytics provider takes measures to prevent unauthorized access, maintain data accuracy, and ensure the correct use of information. They have put in place appropriate physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information they collect online.

Who we share your data with

Albinna discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organisations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on Albinna’s behalf or to provide services available at Albinna’s websites, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organisations may be located outside of your home country; by using Albinna’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Albinna will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organisations, as described above, Albinna discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when Albinna believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Albina, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of an Albinna website and have supplied your email address, Albinna may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what’s going on with Albinna and our products. We primarily use our various product blogs to communicate this type of information, so we expect to keep this type of email to a minimum. If you send us a request (for example via a support email, forms or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. Albinna takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorised access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.

How long we retain your data

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognise 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.

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.

Your contact information

Your contact information will never be used for marketing purposes and we have taken all possible steps to safe guard your information.

Additional information

We may request additional information if we feel that it is necessary to improve service but we will always notify you why the information is required and how it will be used.

How we protect your data

We do our utmost best to safeguard your personal information by having the minimum personal information required for functionality and service stored by us.

What data breach procedures we have in place

If a data breach occurs within our site, we will take all necessary measures to mitigate the breach including informing our users so that they may protect themselves.

What third parties we receive data from

We are likely to receive data from third parties such as social media where we have an account and a user may comment on a post. Only user relevant user information would be expected.

What automated decision making and/or profiling we do with user data

Any automated decision making or profiling is within the minimal data supplied by user via forms, comments or comments on our products or services via third party sites.
