User Comments

  • When visitors leave comments on the dailytelegraph.co.nz (“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 are logged into the Gravatar service, 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.

  • 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.

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 leave a comment without opting-in, no cookies will be employed.
  • Some links contain affiliate cookies. If you click on them a temporary cookie is loaded into your browser. These cookies last for between 1 and 90 days, depending on the affiliate programme.

Who we share your data with

  • We do not share your data with anyone, other than as stated in this Privacy Policy.

How long we retain your data
