Who we are
We are UK Cheer News which is a group of athletes, coaches and supporters of cheerleading in the UK to provide you with news from the UK Cheer community. We are a non-profit volunteer group. Our website address is https://www.ukcheernews.com.
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 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.
We use contact forms as a way to contact us. We only retain your email address and name during the time that is required to answer your questions to us. None of your details submitted on contact forms will be used for marketing purposes.
We use a form to allow you to join our newsletter list. Your email address will be saved on a database only accessible to UK Cheer News team to allow us to send the newsletter out to you. If you wish to stop receiving the newsletter then please email email@example.com to unsubscribe or press unsubscribe in the emailed newsletter.
If you leave a comment on our site you may opt into 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.
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 MonsterInsights to get Google Analytics for our website. This anonymizes IP addresses on all Google Analytics hits, eCommerce hits, and form tracking hits whilst allowing us to track usage of our website.
Who we share your data with
Your data is only shared with the UK Cheer News team and is not shared with any outside sources.
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
Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.
Your contact information
Your contact information will be held only by UK Cheer News team upon contact and will be deleted a month after contact has finished.
How we protect your data
We use Sucuri Security to ensure that your data is held securely.
What data breach procedures we have in place
If a data breach has happened then we will inform all affected before investigating into how or why the breach has happened.
What third parties we receive data from
We currently only receive data on analytics from MonsterInsights and Google.
