Like many other Web sites, White Sky Project makes use of log files. These files merely log you to the site – usually a standard procedure for hosting companies and a part of hosting services’ analytics. The information inside the log files includes your IP addresses, browser type, Internet Service Provider (ISP), date/time stamp, referring/exit pages, and possibly the number of clicks.
This information is used to analyze trends, administer the site, track your movement around the site, and gather demographic information. IP addresses and other such information are not linked to any information that is personally identifiable to you.
Embedded content from other websites
White Sky Project or the owner of this blog has no access to or control over the behavior of embedded content from other websites.
Data collected from giveaways
For giveaways sponsored by White Sky Project, Rafflecopter is usually used to collect entries. Once the giveaway has ended and a winner has been chosen, they will be contacted via the method that they used on the Rafflecopter, either their Twitter account, Facebook account or email address. When the prize has been awarded, all the information that was collected via Rafflecopter are then deleted. Any of the data is never stored for longer than necessary and never used for any other purpose than intended.
White Sky Project participates in blog events (book promotions) with giveaways, but the collection of entries for these giveaways are managed by the tour host or sponsor. We have no access to the entries/data related to these giveaways. You can contact the tour host/sponsor of the giveaway if you have any concerns about these.
Sharing the data
White Sky Project does not engage in unauthorized sharing or selling of data to third-party entities.
How long your data is retained
If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so the site can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.
Your rights over the data
If you have left comments on this blog or are subscribed to the newsletter, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided. You also have the right to ask for your data to be removed from the blog and to stop receiving emails.
