Who we are

What personal data we collect and why we collect it

  • Comments

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.

  • Contact forms

If you complete our Contact form, we use that information for the purpose you intend, that is only to reply to your inquiry.

  • 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.

  • 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.

Do we share your data?

We do not share your data.

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 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.

A word on portraits shown on this site and what may be written about them

Light Pixie Studio is serious about personal privacy. Especially in the case of minor children we are uncompromising in how we show or write about them. Sharyn Richardson protects you and your family as she wants her own to be protected.

Any metadata embedded in photographs is stripped of all individually identifying names, locations, dates, unique information and tags. What remains in the metadata pertains only to Sharyn Turner Richardson and LightPixieStudio.com, camera data and copyright. The same standard applies to what is written about those images. Names are not used, location information (even that potentially found in an airplane tail number) is changed or obscured.

If a recognizable person is shown on this site, in photograph or painted portrait, permission has been requested and received as a model release signed by the individual or individuals. In the case of recognizable minor children shown here, the parents and/or legal guardians have agreed to and signed their permission.

In the case of furry family members, their real names may be used but in no case are their human family members identified or identifiable. Locations are obscured.
