What personal data we collect and why we collect it
We use WordPress to power our website. By default, WordPress does not collect any personal data about visitors, and only collects the data shown on the User Profile screen from registered users. However, we use Google Analytics that collects some data related to the user’s interaction on our website, but no personal data like name and email address.
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.
We save and publish your comment(s) on our website. Sometimes simple tips provided by a visitor can help a thousand others. You are, however, free to reach us anytime and request for a comment deletion (considering that the comment was written by you). Reach us at email@example.com to submit a comment removal.
We moderate comments before publishing and filter out the spam comments.
You need to provide your name and email address to make a comment. Your website URL is optional while making a comment. If you tick mark “Save my name, email, and website in this browser for the next time I comment.” while commenting, your credential for making a comment is saved and you do not need to rewrite your name and email. However, this option is by default un-ticked.
We do not request visitors to upload any media file on our website. However, 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.
Our contact form is located at https://www.ielts-gt.com/contact where we have put our email address and a form that you can use to send us an email. The email you send using this contact form is accessible only by our team and we do not share your email address with anyone else. After we reply to your email, we periodically remove those emails from our server.
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.
We use “Google Analytics” as the Analytics and Statistics solution for our website. Google Analytics is a web analytics service offered by Google Inc. that tracks and reports website traffic for our website www.ielts-gt.com. Google uses the data collected to track and monitor the use of our service. This data is shared with other Google services. Google may use the collected data to contextualize and personalize the ads of its own advertising network.
We do not get your name or email address via our Google Analytics tracking.
For more information on the privacy practices of Google, please visit the Google Privacy & Terms web page https://policies.google.com/privacy?hl=en
Who we share your data with
We get some of your data like name, email address, website URL etc. from the comments you make on our website using the article commenting feature or from the emails you sent us via the contact us form from our website.
We can sometimes review your comments, read your emails and share them we only with our team so that we can customise the content that would best serve your purpose.
We DO NOT share your personal data that we collect from the comment feature and from contact forms with anyone else other than our own team.
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.
Where we send your data
We do not send your data to any third party so that they can track you. We save your comments on our server and delete them upon valid requests. We periodically remove all the old emails from our mail server.
It is worth noticing that, visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service with the sole purpose of detecting spam comments from an original one. We do NEVER sell our users’ personal information.
This feature is available to visitors so that they can search for something they are looking for from this website.
Any of the visitor-chosen search filters and query data in order to process a search request is used and stored. however, this does not track who searches for what.
To initiate and process subscriptions on our website, we use subscriber’s email address and the ID of the post or comment (depending on the specific subscription being processed). In the event of a new subscription being initiated, we also collect some basic server data, including all of the subscribing user’s HTTP request headers, the IP address from which the subscribing user is viewing the page, and the URI which was given in order to access the page. This server data is used for the exclusive purpose of monitoring and preventing abuse and spam.
You have several choices available when it comes to information about you. If you are concerned about your choices, you can always:
– Limit the information that you provide while sending an email or to make a comment.
– Limit access to information on your mobile device.
– Opt-Out of Marketing features.
– Unsubscribe from your mailing list.
– Set your browser to reject cookies.
– Close your account if you have one with us.
How we protect your data
We work hard to protect information about you against unauthorized access, use, alteration, or destruction, and take reasonable measures to do so, such as monitoring our Services for potential vulnerabilities and attacks.
Your privacy is very important to us. At IELTS GT we take your privacy very seriously. Thus –
– We don’t ask you for your personal information unless we truly need it. We never call or email you to send us your personal data. Thus in case, someone else pretends to be us, and ask for your personal data, NEVER share your sensitive and personal data.
– We don’t share your personal information (that we get through the comments you make or the emails you send to us) with anyone except our team here in IELTS GT.
– We would never ask you to participate in a survey where you need to disclose your age, salary, location and similar personal data.
