Information You Provide and How it is Used
We (the owner(s) of Headphone & Earphone Reviews) collect the following information when you visit or interact with our site:
All visitors (except where your browser settings prevent it) will have a “cookie” (or cookies) stored by your browser, by the site software and by third party services that provide site features. These are used for analytics, eg: statistics telling us how long you spent on the site and for calculating how many unique visitors read the site. They are also used for the Disqus comments system and our Member account system to provide secure registration access. Information about your location, such as your IP address and where you are from are used for monitoring visitor location statistics using Google Analytics, as well as WordPress.
We use Disqus to manage article comments. If you post a comment, you must register with them, or use an online social media account, such as Google or Facebook, to post a comment. We receive, from Disqus, information from your profile, such as your profile name and your social media account (if it was used to register with Disqus). This is used to integrate their comment system with our site.
We use Mailchimp to send newsletters. If you register for our newsletter, you provide your information to them. They provide us with your email address so that we can send you the newsletter.
To become a supporting Member, or make a donation, you have to provide one of our payment processors (Stripe or PayPal) with your payment information. They provide us with your name and email address, and your shipping address (if required to ship you a reward) and the last four digits of your credit card (so you can check which card you used to sign up with in your account page). This is used to create your account, and manage your access to membership features and rewards.
We respect requests to delete personal information. However, we cannot control how the third party sites, mentioned above, manage your information. For that, you will need to contact them.
We do not share information provided to us with any other person or entity, except as described above to provide the features and/or services on the site.
