Who We Are
Our website, BizElevator.com, is dedicated to providing information about our business. We are committed to protecting your privacy and ensuring transparency in how your data is handled.

When you leave a comment on BizElevator.com, we collect the data shown in the comments form. This includes your name, email address, and the comment itself. We also collect your IP address and browser user agent string to aid in spam detection. An anonymized string from your email (a ‘hash’) may be used by the Gravatar service to verify if you are using it, aligning with Automattic’s privacy policy. Once your comment is approved, your profile picture, if available via Gravatar, will be public alongside your comment.

If you upload images to BizElevator.com, we advise against including images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS). Visitors can download images from our site and extract this data. We prioritize your privacy and recommend caution to protect it.

Our site uses cookies to enhance your experience. If you comment, you can opt to save your details (name, email, and website) in cookies, sparing you from re-entering them for future comments. These cookies last one year. Visiting our login page sets a temporary cookie to check browser cookie acceptance, discarded upon browser closure. Logging in sets cookies for your login info and screen display choices, lasting two days to one year. ‘Remember Me’ extends login duration to two weeks. Editing or publishing an article sets a cookie (no personal data) indicating the edited post ID, expiring after one day.

Embedded Content from Other Websites
Articles on BizElevator.com may include embedded content (e.g., videos, images, articles) from other websites. This content behaves as if you visited the source site, which may collect data about you, use cookies, or embed third-party tracking. Your interaction with this content may be tracked, especially if you have an account and are logged in to that site.

Who We Share Your Data With
In specific instances, such as password resets, your IP address may be included in the reset email. We may share data with third-party services for necessary operations (like spam detection), but we ensure these parties respect your privacy in alignment with our standards.

How Long We Retain Your Data
“Comments and their metadata are kept indefinitely for recognition and approval of follow-up comments, avoiding the moderation queue. User registration data, if applicable, is stored as long as the account exists. Users can manage their personal data anytime, barring username changes. Administrators can access and edit this information for site management purposes.

Your Rights Over Your Data
If you have an account or have commented on BizElevator.com, you can request an exported file of your personal data we hold, including any data you’ve provided. You can also request the deletion of any personal data we hold about you, except data retained for legal, administrative, or security purposes.

Where Your Data Is Sent
Your comments may undergo an automated spam detection service analysis. This process helps maintain the integrity of discussions on our site and protects against malicious activities.
