At Jiko, we are committed to protecting your privacy and ensuring that your personal information is handled in a safe and responsible manner. This Privacy Policy outlines how we collect, use, disclose, and safeguard your information when you visit our website.

Comments

When visitors leave comments on the site, we collect the data shown in the comments form. Additionally, we capture the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to aid in spam detection.

An anonymized string (hash) from your email address may be used with the Gravatar service to confirm if you are using it. The Gravatar service’s privacy policy is here. Once your comment is approved, your profile picture becomes public in the context of your comment.

Media

If you upload images to the website, we recommend you avoid including images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS). Visitors can download and extract location data from images on the site.

Cookies

Our site uses cookies to enhance your experience:

  • If you leave a comment, you may opt-in to saving your name, email, and website in cookies for convenience, so you don’t need to re-enter your details for future comments. 

  • A temporary cookie is set when you visit our login page to check if your browser accepts cookies. This contains no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.

  • We set cookies to save your login information and screen display choices when you log in. 

Embedded Content from Other Websites

Articles on our site may include embedded content (e.g., videos, images, articles). Embedded content from other websites behaves just as if you visited those websites directly. These sites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with their content, especially if you have an account and are logged in to those sites.

Who We Share Your Data With

Your IP address is included in the reset email if you request a password reset.

How Long We Retain Your Data

Comments and their metadata are retained indefinitely for recognition and approval of follow-up comments. For registered users, we store the personal information they provide in their profile. All users can manage their personal information at any time (username changes are not permitted). Website administrators can also access and edit this information.

What Rights You Have Over Your Data

If you have an account or have left comments, you can request an exported file of the personal data we hold, including any data you’ve provided. You can also request the erasure of any personal data we hold. This excludes data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.

Where Your Data Is Sent

Visitor comments may be screened through an automated spam detection service.

Changes to Our Privacy Policy

We may update this privacy policy from time to time. We will notify you of any changes by posting the new privacy policy on this page. We encourage you to review this privacy policy periodically for any changes.
