Analytics:

Who we share your data with/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.

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.

How we protect your data

The Girls at the Rock Show collects and processes as little personal data as possible in order to achieve our mission, which is described on our About Us page.
The Girls at the Rock Show strongly believes that you have the right to control the use of your personal information and that your privacy must be respected. We strictly limit the collection and processing of your personal data, and to the best of our abilities, we will work only with other organizations who do the same. We will not use personal data that you provide to us in a manner inconsistent with the purposes for which you provided it to us, as set out below.

We do not sell, rent or lease personal data.

We will vigorously challenge any attempts by government agencies or private sector organizations to gain access to any information that you give us.

We apply security patches to our services as promptly as reasonably possible — so if a known vulnerability is corrected by the software developers or an underlying service, we work hard to ensure our system is updated.

What data breach procedures we have in place

Personal data shall be subject to additional safeguards to ensure this data is processed securely. For example, we work hard to ensure data is encrypted and access to this data will be strictly limited to a minimum number of individuals and subject to confidentiality commitments.
We will take all steps reasonably necessary to ensure that your data is treated securely and in accordance with this Policy. Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure. Although we will do our best to protect your personal data, we cannot guarantee the security of your data transmitted to any of our websites; any transmission is at your own risk. Once we have received your information, we will use strict procedures and security features to try to prevent unauthorized access. When possible, encryption is used, both in transit and storage. Access controls within the organization limit who may access information. Breaches may occur, despite all of our safeguard measures. We will notify you as soon as possible of breaches that affect your data.

What third parties we receive data from

We do benefit from data through some processing, by using analytics. The purpose for which we derive analytics is to help us identify how people are using our website and what content they are engaging most with. This helps us report to our board and funders about the usefulness of our content, and ultimately guide our organizational strategy.

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

We collect and process personal data for the following necessary purposes:

  • To administer our websites;
  • For our readers to engage with us online. (By responding to any communications, queries, or requests for information etc).
