Who We Are
We are delighted to welcome you to our online platform, accessible at https://howdiscover.com. Here, we strive to provide valuable content and services that cater to your interests and needs.
Your thoughts and engagement mean a lot to us. When you decide to share your insights through comments on our site, we gather the information you provide in the comments form. Alongside this, we also collect your IP address and browser user agent string. This collection aids us in effectively identifying and preventing spam.
Should you choose to upload images on our website, we kindly advise you to avoid including embedded location data (EXIF GPS) within these images. This is to ensure that visitors to our platform are unable to extract location information from these images.
At times, convenience is paramount. If you decide to leave a comment on our site, you have the option to opt-in for the saving of your name, email address, and website in cookies. These cookies are designed to simplify your experience by retaining your details, eliminating the need to input them every time you wish to leave a comment. Rest assured, these cookies will remain active for a period of one year.
Upon visiting our login page, a temporary cookie is set up to ascertain your browser’s acceptance of cookies. This specific cookie does not gather any personal data and is discarded as soon as you close your browser.
Upon logging in, our system will establish several cookies to store your login information and screen display preferences. Login cookies persist for two days, while screen options cookies last for a year. Opting for the “Remember Me” feature extends your login persistence to two weeks. Should you choose to log out, the login cookies will be promptly removed.
Furthermore, when you edit or publish an article, an additional cookie will be stored in your browser. This cookie does not contain personal data; rather, it indicates the post ID of the recently edited article. It will expire after one day.
Embedded Content from Other Websites
Our articles might feature embedded content such as videos, images, and articles sourced from external websites. It’s important to note that embedded content from these external sources behaves in the same manner as if you were visiting those websites directly.
Sharing Your Data
If you initiate a password reset, please be aware that your IP address will be included within the reset email for verification purposes.
For comments you leave on our platform, both the comment itself and its associated metadata will be retained indefinitely. This allows us to streamline the process of recognizing and approving subsequent comments automatically, negating the need to hold them in a moderation queue.
For users who choose to register on our website, their provided personal information is stored within their user profiles. All users, including registered ones, have the ability to view, edit, or delete their personal data (except for username changes). Administrators of our website also have access to view and edit this information.
Your Rights over Your Data
Should you possess an account on our site or have left comments, you retain the right to request an exported file containing the personal data we have on record for you. This file encompasses any information you have shared with us. Moreover, you can ask us to erase any personal data we hold about you, with the exception of data we are obligated to retain for administrative, legal, or security reasons.
