At Healthmonastery, the privacy of our readers is our utmost priority.
What personal data we collect and why we collect it
The type of data that we collect and process may include your name, username, email address, IP address, and URL. We use data to run our site efficiently and personalise user experience.
We process data of brands, companies, organisations on this blog which may have been provided to us by a third party (eg. PR companies or other blogger outreach services). We need to process brand names and links of these companies, organisations, etc which may sometimes include names of people within that brand, company or organisation, (eg. if the brand is named after a living person) in order to carry out work assigned to us by these companies.
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.
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.
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

By entering any giveaway, or entering personal information on this website you are agreeing to these terms. Demographics may be shared with third parties but any data that can identify an individual person will not be shared without their consent. We also use plug ins which process some of your data.
