What personal data we collect and why we collect it
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. If you leave a comment on our site you are also give the option to 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 submit a message via the contact form, your provided information will simply be emailed to the site owner. Your information will not be saved into the site’s database and will not be used for re-marketing purposes.
Our site uses CloudFlare for better security against online threats, specifically bots crawling the site looking for vulnerabilities. CloudFlare is also used to optimise website performance to give you, the visitor, the best possible user experience. A cookie is used to identify individual users on a shared IP address and apply security settings on a per-client basis. The cookie allows CloudFlare to identify visitors and challenge their legitimacy if necessary. The cookie is also used so that approved visitors are not challenged twice. The information gathered does not correspond to any user ID in your web application, and does not store any personally identifiable information. Read more.
In order to check login activity and block potentially fraudulent attempts, the following data is collected: attempting user’s IP address, attempting user’s email address/username (i.e. according to the value they were attempting to use during the login process), and all IP-related HTTP headers attached to the attempting user.
This feature also tracks failed login attempts along with their IP address, attempted username or email address, and user agent information. A cookie is set following the simple math question (jpp_math_pass) for 1 day to remember if/when a user has successfully completed a math captcha to prove that they’re a real human. Learn more about this cookie.
Blog and Comment Subscriptions
To initiate and process subscriptions, the following information is collected: subscriber’s email address and the ID of the post or comment (depending on the specific subscription being processed). In the event of a new subscription being initiated, we also collect some basic server data, including all of the subscribing user’s HTTP request headers, the IP address from which the subscribing user is viewing the page, and the URI which was given in order to access the page (REQUEST_URI and DOCUMENT_URI). This server data is used for the exclusive purpose of monitoring and preventing abuse and spam.
Functionality cookies are set for a duration of 347 days to remember a visitor’s blog and post subscription choices if, in fact, they have an active subscription.
Our website uses Google Analytics, a service which transmits website traffic data to Google servers in the United States. Google Analytics does not identify individual users or associate your IP address with any other data held by Google. We use reports provided by Google Analytics to help us understand website traffic and webpage usage. Learn more at https://www.google.com/policies/privacy/, and to opt out, visit http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout.
We also monitor website traffic via WordPress.com. Collected data includes IP address, WordPress.com user ID (if logged in), WordPress.com username (if logged in), user agent, visiting URL, referring URL, timestamp of event, browser language, country code.
Important: The site owners and administrators of SwiftFind do not have access to any of this information. For example, we can see that a specific post has 285 views, but we cannot see which specific users/accounts viewed that post. Stats logs containing visitor IP addresses and WordPress.com usernames (if available) are retained by Automattic (the plug-in developer) for 28 days and are used for the sole purpose of powering this feature.
Activity Tracked: Post and page views, outbound link clicks, referring URLs and search engine terms, and country. Page load performance is also tracked in order to make sure that plugin and code that powers this feature is not causing performance issues.

Contact form entries will be kept for a maximum of six months.
Comment or blog subscription data will be retained indefinitely until you choose to unsubscribe.
