Who we are

R2 Society is a platform for people who are interested in bettering the world in any form to communicate, organize, learn and grow.

What personal data we collect and why we collect it

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.

You retain the rights to all images that you upload to your profile page. All images are kept in our media library, and you may request for one to be permanently deleted if you wish. (Even if you delete the image from your profile, a backup will be kept in our library. This is done automatically, so you will need to ask for it to be deleted there if you want it permanently deleted.) This may take some time because the images are not stored in an organized fashion.

Contact forms

The email you provide in the contact forms may be used to send out messages regarding changes and/or improvements made to the R2 Society platform. We will never give it to a third party for any reason whatsoever.

Cookies

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.

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.

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.

Analytics

TBA. We are only interested in making this platform better.

Who we share your data with

Nobody.

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.

In order to permanently delete media that you upload, you will need to seek help from a website administrator.

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

You may change the privacy settings on your contact information that you post to your profile page. You may change or delete the information any time.

Additional information

How we protect your data

Please don't add sensitive information or data to this site until we give you the go-ahead, in which case we will have installed hefty protections and firewalls to ensure there are no data breaches.

What data breach procedures we have in place

TBA. We are still in the process of building this platform and thus do not have a formal procedure in place. Please don't add sensitive data or information to this site via comments, discussion boards, your profile or any other area where you are able to write.
