Our website address is: https://jessicawhitelaw.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.
If you leave a comment on our site, you may opt-in to saving your name, email address, and website in cookies. Cookies are for your convenience and enhance your user experience 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.
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 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 do not sell or share your data with any third parties. We collect user data to improve the performance of our site. We use Google reCaptcha v3 technology to collect meta data from you while you are using our website. This includes user typing patterns, number of mouse clicks, and browser language. This information helps us detect whether the user is a legitimate customer or a bot. This keeps our website safe and secure so that we can continue to help our clients instead of dealing with website overloads from bots or hackers.
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.
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
When you submit your contact information to our site, you must also check an “opt in” box to receive communications from us. We use your contact information, including your email and phone, to send you periodic updates about our services and monthly newsletters with the latest immigration updates. When you receive our emails, you can select the option to unsubscribe or reduce the amount of email you receive from us.
How we protect your data
What data breach procedures we have in place
We will notify all of our users by email within 24 hours of a data breach. We will let users know if any sensitive information including their email addresses or phone were divulged in the attack, and recommend any remediation such as changing passwords or credit monitoring.
What third parties we receive data from
What automated decision making and/or profiling we do with user data
We collect user data for marketing purposes, such as creating email lists based on your interests. We also collect user data as explained above in the section on Google reCaptcha v3.
