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 anonymised 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.

Media

If you upload images to the website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the website.

Registration forms

When you become a member of hairuncut.com, SalonEdge, or use a form to contact us, we collect personal data including your name, email address and home or business address (we collect home or business address for SalonEdge membership sign ups only). This information is required to verify your identity and to allow you to progress to the payment page, in order to gain access to our restricted content. We may contact you by email, phone, or post to let you know about HairUncut services that you may be interested in.

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

We do not sell or transfer your data to any third party for marketing purposes.

In order to subscribe to The SalonEdge service, and during the sign up process, you will be passed securely to Stripe, our payment gateway. To read Stripe’s privacy policy around payments, please click here.

How long we retain your data

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognise 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 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.

Should you decide that you no longer want us to hold or process your data, you can delete your account on your profile page. Alternatively please email our data officer with your request by clicking here.

We aim to complete all data requests as soon as possible, to comply with relevant legislation.

Where we send your data

Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.

How we protect your data

We take your data and the protection of it very seriously. Whilst no system is 100% secure against attack, we use robust security services to ensure that we protect your data and can respond quickly to any attempt by a third party to obtain unlawful access to data. Responsibility for data protection also rests with our users. It is therefore vital that users do not share their login detail with anyone else, or allow another party to use their login to access hairuncut.com.

What data breach procedures we have in place

In the event of a data breach, we will notify all users within 72 hours and provide as much information as possible about the event.
