By using this website, you agree to the following conditions based on your activity/account levels.
Effective: 26 October 2018.
Who we are
Our website address is: https://tottnews.com.
More can be found on our About section.
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 anonymised string created from your email address (also called a hash) may be provided to the Gravatar service to see if you are using it. If so, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.
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 will last for one year.
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 last for two days, and screen options cookies last for a year.
If you select “Remember Me”, your login will persist for two weeks. If you log out of your account, the login cookies will be removed.
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
All data is stored securely and we do not sell it off to anybody.
If you request a password reset, your IP address will be included in the reset email.
In the event of a warrant request for user data from police for reasonable and lawful criminal investigations, TOTT News would comply with measures. We do not tolerate illegal activities of any kind on this website.
Users would be notified in the unlikely event of any transfer or movement of their data on this website.
How long we retain your data
If you leave an approved 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, we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile, including PayPal account details. All information is secure.
All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username), unless it is needed for investigation. 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, unless this data is needed for a particular investigation.
This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.
Where your data is sent
Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.
