What personal data we collect and why we collect it

Contact forms

When you fill out a contact form, we ask for your name and business email address so that we may contact you.

Cookies

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.

Who we share your data with

  1. Google Analytics – Google uses first-party cookies to anonymously and in aggregate report on visits to our site.  These cookies are already in compliance with GDPR.
  2. Lead Forensics – Lead Forensics track site visitors’ IP addresses and checks them against a list of businesses who have opted in to this policy.
  3. ThomasNet.com – Similarly, ThomasNet is an opt-in service that matches suppliers with purchasers.  ThomasNet tracks referrals to our site.

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.

Cookies typically have a duration of 30 days, but the visitor can clear her cookies from her browser at any time.

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.  Other than that, we never sell visitor information.  Never have, and never will.  Our customers are too important to us.

How we protect your data

Engineered Printing Solutions employs state-of-the-art SSL encryption.  Our data servers are either onsite under 24-hour security or else are hosted by industry-leading providers.  No financial information is stored.
