Who we are
Our website address is: https://businessroom.ng.
What personal data we collect and why we collect it
When visitors leave comments on the site we may 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.
If you leave a comment on our site, you may opt-in to saving your name, email address, and website in cookies. These are for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies may last for one year or more.
If you visit our login page, we will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.
When you log in, we will also set up several cookies to save your login information and your screen display choices. Login cookies typically last for two days, and screen options cookies for a year. If you select “Remember Me”, your login may persist for two weeks. If you log out of your account, the login cookies will be removed.
If you edit or publish an article, an additional cookie will be saved in your browser. This cookie includes no personal data and simply indicates the post ID of the article you just edited. It typically expires after 1 day.
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 exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.
Who we share your data with
We may share your data with various organisations in order to improve our service to you. The shared data will be used to improve the services we render or for some other reasons that may come up.
Your data may also be shared with relevant authorities if the need ever arises, especially for administrative, legal, or security purposes.
How long we retain your data for
If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognise 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.
What rights you have over your data
If you have an account on this site, or have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. 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.
Where we send your data
Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.
Your contact information
Whatever contact information you share with us upon registration is kept safe in our databases.
How we protect your data
We use a number of data protection systems to ensure that the data of all our users are kept safe. Your personal data is secured with these systems and will not be released unless that is absolutely necessary.
What automated decision making and/or profiling we do with user data
Whenever you register with us, we automatically send you an email for you to confirm your email address. We also automatically send you an official welcome email once you confirm your email address. These emails are automated and do not require any Admin input.
If you choose to follow a post, question, answer, or comment, you may also get automated emails as set up.
