Note: This is a simple personal photography blog in the USA managed by Dart and Susan Humeston. Its purpose is to display our photographs. We don’t do anything with any data. However, we do use WordPress plugins and other tools that without us even being aware of it, could possibly be collecting data.
Who we are
Our website address is: https://humestonian.com.
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. No one is allowed to upload anything except us, so this does not apply.
There are no contact forms!

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 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.
No one is allowed to register so the following does not apply.
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
No one has an account on this site but us, so the following does not apply.
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.
We do not want your data except where absolutely necessary for an efficient operating platform. However, this blog uses WordPress and various plugins and widgets, which to our knowledge is not collecting info but we are not computer programmers, so we cannot be certain of every plugin we use. We do not request your data, want nothing to do with your data, but in a complex WordPress platform, who knows. Anytime we discover a plugin that might be suspected of capturing data, we will uninstall it. We will protect your privacy to the best of our limited abilities. If you have questions or concerns contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
