What personal data we collect and why we collect it
The fierceblooms site utilises the Wordpress platform from developers Automatic whose privacy notice for visitors to their users' sites can be found here
. More specifics about the personal data collected on the site follows below.
If you have subscribed to follow the blog, we retain your email address to allow us to immediately send each new fierceblooms blog post when just published to your email account

Who we share your data with
We do not share personal information with third-parties nor do we store information we collect about your visit to this blog for use other than to analyze content performance.
How long we retain your data
If you have subscribed to follow the blog, we retain your email address to allow us to send each new blog post when published to your email account until you advise us you wish to opt out of this service (an unsubscribe option is available on each new blog post emailed to a blog follower). If you leave a comment on a blog post, 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.

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.
How we protect your data
All interaction with the fierceblooms site and your desktop or mobile browser is via an encrypted (secure sockets layer SSL or https://) connection. This minimises the chance of your data being malevolently intercepted as it passes over the internet. A visual cue that this is in place will be a lock image somewhere in your browser’s status or location bar. Login to our fierceblooms website host server and our content delivery network (Cloudflare) are both protected via a two-step-authentication password process. On Cloudflare we also deploy their web application firewall (WAF) to protect the fierceblooms site from common vulnerabilities like SQL injection attacks, cross-site scripting, and cross-site forgery requests.
