Who we are: Our website is www.meetthesea.com
When our visitors leave comments on our website we compile the data that is required in the forms we supply, as well as the visiting IP and user agent in order to help detect spam content.
An anonymous chain generated from your electronic address (also known as “hash”) could be given to the Gravatar service to check if you are using it.
After approval of your comment, your profile image will be visible to the public within the context of your comment.
If you upload images you should try to avoid including location data (GPS EXIF). Web visitors could potentially download and extract location data from those images.
If you leave a comment in our site, you may elect to keep your name, email address and/or web in cookies. This is for your own comfort, so you do not have to fill in your data once again the next time you leave your comment. These cookies will last for a year.
If you have an account and you connect to the site, we will install a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie does not keep personal data and is eliminated once the browser is closed.
When you access our site, we will install several cookies to preserve your access information and your screen visualization preferences. Access cookies last for two days and screen cookies last one day. If you select “remember me” your access will last for two weeks. If you leave your account, access cookies will be eliminated.
If you publish or edit an article, an additional cookie will be kept in your browser. This cookie does not keep personal data and only holds the ID of the article you just published. It will expire in one day.

Articles from our site may contain embedded content from other sources (videos, images, articles, etc). Embedded content will behave exactly as if the visitor had been visiting the web of origin.
With who we share your data:
If you create a new password your IP address will be included in the password re establishing email.
For how long we keep your data:
If you leave a comment, your comment and metadata will be kept indefinitely. This is so that we may recognise and approve future comments immediately, instead of holding them in along moderation queue.
We also store the information of those who subscribe to our web, only the information that is given to us when filling out the profile questionnaire. All users can edit, update or eliminate their information at any moment (except changing their username).
Web administrators can also see and edit that information.

You may also ask us to eliminate any and all information we have about you. This does not include any data we have to keep for administrative, legal or security reasons.
