Who I am

Jason, Transmission Tuner, the owner of this website address: https://transmissiontuner.com/blog.

Public Profile Directories

Some user role profiles are shown in public directories, for example, those who are DIY or Harness Kit customers.  These customers agree to have their profile shown and also agree that they cannot delete their account.  This discourages people from building a harness and claiming it was built by Transmission Tuner.  Other role profiles will not have public directories created, but may have directories that are visible to others with the same forum role.  If you are not a DIY or Harness Kit customer, you may request your account be deleted by emailing Jason.

What personal data is collected and why it is used

Comments

When visitors submit a completed contact form, register, and/or leave comments on the website, I collect the data shown in the forms, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string may be used or collected to help spam detection.  Your email address is used to respond to questions, or get notifications from the website regarding your account.  It is not required or recommended to include your last name in your forum account registration, or comment submissions.  I do ask for your last name in the contact form so I have an alternate way to identify you, but this can be limited to the first three letters of your name if you like.

Email addresses are not shown publicly and are never shared or used for mass marketing. I reserve the right to respond to questions directly to the email address you submit either in the contact form or forum account registration.

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.

This site uses security plug ins – however, in the rare event the security of this site is compromised, you agree to release the owner of the site for any damages due to breach of data, which may include your email address, name and any other information you may submit.  Credit card payment info or physical addresses are never stored here so no worries about that.

Cookies

If you leave a comment on this 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 edit or publish a comment, an additional cookie will be saved in your browser. This cookie includes no personal data and simply indicates the post ID of the comment 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.

How long I retain your data

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely.

What rights you have over your data

If you have registered, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data I hold about you, including any data you have provided. You can also request that I erase any personal data I hold about you, but this will also include all of your past comments.

Where I send your data

Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service. The owner of this site is not responsible for breaches of data that may happen with such services.
