At 8bitnews.io, we are committed to complying with GDPR, CCPA, PECR and other privacy regulations on our website and in our newsletter too. The privacy of your data is a big deal to us.
In this policy, we lay out what data we collect and why, how your data is handled and your rights to your data.
The privacy of our website visitors is important to us so we do not track any individual people. For every visitor to the 8bitnews.io website we ensure, that:
We run the Plausible Analytics script to collect anonymous usage data for statistical purposes. The goal is to track overall trends in our website traffic, it is not to track individual visitors.
Our guiding principle is to collect only what we need and that we will solely process this information to provide you with the service you signed up for.
We use a select number of trusted external service providers for certain service offerings. These service providers are carefully selected and meet high data protection, data privacy and security standards.
We only share information with them that is required for the services offered and we contractually bind them to keep any information we share with them as confidential and to process personal data only according to our instructions.
When subscribing to our newsletter, we ask you to provide us with your email address. Other personally identifiable information is not requested, so we limit this to:
Here’s what that means in practice:
Usage Data is collected automatically through the integration of the Plausible statistics solution integrated only into our website, not into the newsletter. Usage Data may include but is not limited to information such as:
All the data is in aggregate only. No personal data is collected. Data collected includes referral sources, top pages, visit duration, information from the devices (device type, operating system, country and browser) used during the visit and more. You can see full details in Plausibles data policy - the statistics aggregation tool, that we use.
Your email address, is processed at the 8bitnews's operating offices and in any other places where the parties involved (Mailchimp) in the processing are located. It means that this information may be transferred to — and maintained on — computers located outside of your state, province, country or other governmental jurisdiction where the data protection laws may differ than those from your jurisdiction.
We will retain your email address via Mailchimp as long as your account is active, as necessary to provide you with the services or as otherwise set forth in this policy.
We will also retain and use this information as necessary for the purposes set out in this policy and to the extent necessary to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes, enforce our agreements and protect 8bitnews’s legal rights.
You can unsubscribe from our 8bitnews.io newsletter at any time. All your data will be permanently deleted immediately when you delete your account.
Under certain circumstances, 8bitnews.io may be required to disclose your email address if required to do so by law or in response to valid requests by public authorities (e.g. a court or a government agency).
8bitnews.io may disclose your email address in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to:
The security of your email address is important to us, but remember that no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage is 100% secure. While we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your email address, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.
Besides sharing your email address with the providers of technically necessary services (Mailchimp) we never share your data with any third party.
We did never, nor will we ever sell your email address.
We do not track you, hence we do not use any cookies nor do we set cookies, use super cookies, local storage or any other technical means to identify a certain user or device.
We have no control over and assume no responsibility for the content, privacy policies or practices of any third party sites or services.
We may update this policy as needed to comply with relevant regulations and reflect any new practices. Whenever we make a significant change to our policies, we will also announce them in our next newsletter update via email.
