Privacy Policy

Who we are

Our website address is: http://giblinconsulting.com.  All our contact information is posted on our “Contact Us” page.

What personal data we collect and why we collect it

We value your privacy!  By default our website does not collect any personal data about visitors, and only collects the data shown on the User Profile screen which is provided by registered users.

Comments

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

An anonymized string created from your email address (also called a hash) may be provided to the Gravatar service to see if you are using it. The Gravatar service privacy policy is available here: https://automattic.com/privacy/. After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.

Media

If you upload images to the website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the website.

Contact forms

We value your privacy.  We may keep contact form submissions for customer service purposes only (i.e. to respond to your query), but do not add your information to any email list or share any of the information you provide with any other websites or organizations.  We never use the information submitted through our contact form for any marketing purposes.
