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 anonymized 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.

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 tracking your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.

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.

WHY DO WE COLLECT DATA?

The data we collect is used to improve our services, send messages and newsletters, as well as provide customer support.

In addition, we use non-personal data. This data can not be tracked to you. We use this to provide you with marketing/messages which is relevant to you.

We also use this type of data to improve us and give you a better experience.

WHAT DO WE COLLECT?

Like many other companies, we collect information that can identify you. This is personal information.

We only collect personal information when you provide it to us.

Example of personal information is:

Email, address, phone number and name.

WHAT DO WE DO WITH YOUR INFORMATION?

We store your data securely with us until we no longer need to contact you or you no longer want us to keep your data.

Podbike AS does not sell personal information to third parties, nor do we exchange or disseminate this information with third parties.

Outsiders can only access this information if they are to provide specific services for us. In such cases, strict agreements are entered in order to protect information security.

We will always decide how the information will be processed. We process your data on the basis of legitimate interest or active consent. It is your personal information and you have the right to request to see, update, correct or tell us to delete your personal 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.
