ancancha.me only keeps information required to complete customers orders, i.e. Name, Address, Telephone no. email address.
I am a one person business about me and in the entire time I have been trading on the internet, since 1993 ! I have never indulged in third party advertising, or knowingly made information available to those who may.
ancancha.me does not use any tracking from google analytics or other search engines. It does have a tracking app which logs those visiting the site. Note it can only identifies users if they are logged in ! This tracking is useful for troubleshooting if a user, or potential user is having issues. It also helps me protect my site from unwelcome visitors.
Data is deleted on a rolling basis of 2000 visits. Generally ancancha is visited by a search engine, user, or browser about once every 10 to 15 seconds. So any record is deleted within 12 hours.
cookies are used by ancancha.me to help keep track of what’s in your cart, which products you have recently looked at. If you are a registered user and logged in, then they will also be used to identify you personally for the purpose of ensuring any orders that you place are attributed to you. This means that you can view your complete purchase history from your account. They also ensure that your contact data populates the checkout form. They need to be enabled for you to access any content that you have purchased.
Your data needs to be shared !
Although I don’t use any tracking or analytics software, there are two third parties who are able to share information about your purchases. PayPal and Stripe. This is essential to complete payments and orders.
If you submit a comment, then the comment will be attributed to you as a user. Comments are moderated.
ancancha.me uses the platform WordPress, and woocommerce. If you are using a custom gravatar, then the service will look for it and populate that on any comments you make. Otherwise an anonymous image is used.
Find out more at auttomatic who own and operate woocommerce and are commercially linked to WordPress.
Browsers can use the contact form to ask questions and upload images for me to view and help identify parts they are looking for. Note that images can contain location and time information ! If you are concerned about this, then you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. NOTE I delete uploaded images regularly !
As above you can get in touch using the contact form, and it will collect your name, email address, and your question, as well as above, any images. If you would like this information deleted, then get in touch and it will be done asap.
How long is your data retained
As above, if you haven’t registered, or made a purchase, then your personal data isn’t collected or retained. If you have made a purchase, and this is currently the only way you can register, then your data is kept indefinitely.
You can view your data by simply logging into your account 😉
Where we send your data
Currently the web ancancha.me is hosted in the Ireland, and the third parties, PayPal and stripe are based in the US. Hosting companies do collect browsing data for marketing purposes, but not personal data. WordPress and woocommerce and also based in the United States.
How I protect your data
ancancha.me uses SSL technology to verify its authenticity, look for the padlock in the address bar.
Administration login is protected by 2FA
Because I am a one person business, it is easy to guard against internal data breaches.
What third parties we receive data from
I have always been very wary about information and the internet, and other than the bare minimum required to complete orders and operate the site effectively, no other data is given or received by third parties.
get in touch and I will investigate asap !
