This is deemed necessary in order to maintain the security of the website and services we offer. IP addresses may be retained in backup images of the server for a period of 6 months subsequent to the time they were recorded.

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.

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.

We retain transaction history for as long as is required for accounting purposes, and for as long as considered to be in the legitimate interests of the organization. We retain such data on this live website for a more limited time – typically no longer than 1 month from the date of completion of a transaction. Website backup data is stored as per our data backup retention policy (please see below).

Data backup retention policy

Personal data stored on this website is also stored in our daily backup images of our web servers, which typically last for 6 months.

This data is kept in a “non-live” state and stored securely. If we need to restore our backups, we will undertake to ensure that any restored personal information is treated in accordance with the storage and retention policies as laid out in this document. Essentially, this means that if your data has been amended or erased from the ‘live’ website, then we would seek to ensure that data is also deleted from a backup in the unlikely event in which that backup had to be restored to a ‘live’ state.

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.

Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service. Online transaction data is sent to the Payment Gateway provider, for example PayPal and Stripe.

How we protect your data

Our secure based web servers by siteground.com are kept patched and up-to-date and the infrastructure is rated as PCI compliant standard. Website backups are stored securely.

What data breach procedures we have in place

In the event of becoming aware of a data breach, we would seek to establish what data has been exfiltrated and to inform the subjects of that data as soon as reasonably possible. We would also try to inform the Data Commissioner’s Office with 72 hours of becoming aware of a data breach. We would then take measures as are deemed appropriate to determine what happened and to make the required technical, process and policy changes as are considered necessary to minimize the likelihood of the same thing happening again.

What third parties we receive data from

We do not currently receive any data about our supporters or customers from third-party sources.

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

We do not currently use any automated decision making.

We sometimes collect data from our supporters to build a profile and keep a record of transactions, which helps us analyze where our customers are coming from. This is useful to us in a number of ways – for example, if we know that a customer is interested in certain types of project or product that we may undertake, or enjoys being involved in certain types of activities, then we would be able to invite participation in those events. You have the right to view or delete the profile. Please email such requests to  business@paulinafadrowska.com or call (312) 544-9059 or write us by post. There may be times where we use your information to contact you for research purposes, or to invite you to be involved in a project.
