What personal data we collect and why we collect it

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.

We collect information about visitors who comment on Sites that use our Akismet anti-spam service. The information we collect depends on how the User sets up Akismet for the Site, but typically includes the commenter’s IP address, user agent, referrer, and Site URL (along with other information directly provided by the commenter such as their name, username, email address, and the comment itself).

Newsletter

We collect the email address of the people who subscribe to our newsletter in order to deliver news, blog posts and promotions of our own offerings – you can opt-off that service at any time with the link in our newsletters.

By default, our contact forms and checkout pages do not store your data – they do include an optional opt-in to subscribe to our newsletter.

None of your data is accessible to third parties for marketing purposes.

Who we share your data with

Card payments are processed by paylike. You can find their privacy policy here. The webinars are delivered via Zoom meetings, learn more about how they handle your data here.

We share information with third parties who help us provide our orders and store services to you; for example we are using Pipedrive CRM to manage our customers and innvoice.hu for invoicing. Read more on their privacy policy here and here.

Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.

We are using Hummingbird to optimize the performance of our site. Hummingbird uses the Stackpath Content Delivery Network (CDN). Stackpath may store web log information of site visitors, including IPs, UA, referrer, Location and ISP info of site visitors for 7 days. Files and images served by the CDN may be stored and served from countries other than your own. Stackpath’s privacy policy can be found here.

None of your data is accessible to third parties for other purposes.

How long we retain your data

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.

Your newsletter subscription is valid until your engage with our content. If 2 years pass without you opening any of your messages we will assume you are not interested in us anymore (sad!) and delete your data. Of course you can also opt-out yourself anytime by clicking on the link in the newsletter, or writing to hello@thebalazs.com

We generally store your purchase information about you for as long as we need the information for the purposes for which we collect and use it, and we are not legally required to continue to keep it. For example, we will store order information for 2 years for tax and accounting purposes. This includes your name, email address and billing and shipping addresses.
