Privacy Policy

Who we are

Our website address is: https://animatedpiano.com.

What personal data we collect and why we collect it

Comments

This website does not currently support visitor logins or comments, but may do so in the future.  Any information below which refers to logins or comments is for reference only.

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.

Media

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.

Contact forms

This website does not use contact forms.

Cookies

This website does not use cookies other than those necessary to identify the site and maintain its usability, but cookies may be used by embedded content (see ‘Embedded content from other websites’). On a user’s first visit to the site, a notice will be displayed to make the user aware of this. Your browser settings will give you options on cookies, for example how long they are stored on your computer. It is possible to block cookies altogether, but this is not recommended as it may cause some websites to not load properly.

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 have an account and you log in to this site, 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.

These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracing your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.

Most of the embedded content on this site will be from YouTube and other services provided by Google, whose privacy policy can be viewed here: https://policies.google.com/privacy

Streamed audio examples on the site will be hosted by hearthis.at, whose privacy policy can be viewed here: https://hearthis.at/datenschutz

Analytics

This website uses Yoast for search engine optimization. Yoast collects information about website usage anonymously. Their privacy policy can be viewed here: https://yoast.com/privacy-policy/

Who we share your data with

We do not share any personal data with anyone. If you make a payment on the website via our secure payment gateway, we need your name and email address for identification and payment confirmation purposes, but that’s it. We will never send you spam or share your email address with anyone else. We will not subscribe you to any newsletter without your permission, and if you do subscribe you will have the option to unsubscribe at any time. Your billing address will be required by our secure payment gateway for payment validation, but it will only be used for that purpose.

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.
