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

Like most website operators, C Becker Therapy collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. Dr. Becker’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how visitors use this website. From time to time, your data may be released as non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.

C Becker Therapy also collects potentially identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for users leaving comments on blogs or other interactive pages. C Becker therapy only discloses commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below, except that commenter IP addresses and email addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the blog/site where the comment was left.

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