What personal data we collect and why we collect it

Mailing Lists

When you subscribe to TNTalk mailing lists we collect your email address and (optionally) your name. This is to allow us to relay to you the messages which are sent to the list(s) you have requested to join.

Administrators and Moderators may view and manage the list of subscribed persons for each list. Also your email will be visible to all recipients on any list your send to and also to any future members of those lists who may view the archives. Visibility of those archives is restricted to list members only.

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 tracking your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.

Analytics

We do not use any third party analytics at this time. However details of each visit are logged by our hosting provider in their logs and we have access to that data for anonymous visitor statistics.

Who we share your data with

We do not share your data with any third party.

How long we retain your data

As a subscriber to a TNTalk mailing list we retain your name (if we hold it) and your email address for as long as you subscribe to any TNTalk mailing list. This is necessary to be able to send you the emails.

We retain an archive of all messages sent to TNTalk mailing lists for future references. Any emails you send to the lists in during your subscription will be archived here permanently. Those emails will contain your name, email address and the content you wrote.

For members of the administration team, 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

When you send an email to a TNTalk list that email (and your email address) is sent to every member of that list. This is a necessary part of the way mailing lists work.

We do not send any other data to any other place.
