Who we are
We are a personal blog and website which we produce to educate and entertain our guests and subscribers. Our site address is: https://alcoveshome.com. We at alcoveshome.com are the owners, writers, and editors of this blog and website. We take privacy seriously. We would like to inform you about what personally identifiable information we may collect and how it may be used
What personal data we collect and why we collect it
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.
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 visit our login page, 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.
As with most other websites, we collect and use the data contained in log files. The information in the log files includes your IP (internet protocol) address, your ISP (internet service provider), the browser you used to visit our site, the time you visited our site, and which pages you visited throughout our site.
We use ConvertKit to generate contact forms and our email list. We collect data you provide to us on these forms such as your first name and email address. If you voluntarily complete this form and submit it to us, we will add your email address to our list so that we can send you updates on blog posts and periodic newsletters. We keep your email address indefinitely or until you contact us asking us to remove it from our list or until you unsubscribe from our list. Our email list is private, and we will never sell it.
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.
Our blog posts and newsletters may contain affiliate links for products that we recommend and have used and that are from reputable vendors. The vendors may collect data about you if you click on these affiliate links.
Who we share your data with
If you request a password reset, your IP address will be included in the reset email.
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 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.

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