What personal data we collect and why we collect it
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.
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.
Embedded content from other websites
Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.
Use of Google Analytics
Abandoned Cubicle uses Google Analytics, a service provided by Google Inc. Google Analytics uses “cookies”. Cookies are text files that are stored on your computer. Cookies enable an analysis of your use of this website.

The information about your use of this website, generated by the cookie, is generally transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there.

On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports about website activities and to provide further services connected with website use and internet use for the website operator.
The IP address transmitted from your browser within Google Analytics is not connected with other data from Google.
Abandoned Cubicle anonymizes IP addresses with its use of Google Analytics. This ensures that IP addresses are shortened in form, which excludes the possibility of personal attribution. Any personal connection to the data collected about you will, as a result, be immediately excluded and all personal data will be immediately deleted.
We use Google Analytics to analyze the use of Abandoned Cubicle and regularly improve it. For the exceptional cases in which personal data are transmitted to the USA, Google has committed itself to the EU-US Privacy Shield, https://www.privacyshield.gov/EU-US-Framework. The legal basis for the use of Google Analytics is Article 6 Section (1)(f) of the GDPR.
How long we retain your data

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.
