Who we are
Welcome to https://ipfire.net/, your trusted source of information.
Visitors leaving comments on our site need to know that we gather data provided in the comment form, along with the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string. This information aids us in spam detection.
We advise users against uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) to the website. Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data present in images on the website.
Should you leave a comment on our site, you can choose to save your name, email address, and website in cookies. This is for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again for future comments. These cookies will be stored for one year.
On your visit to our login page, we will set a temporary cookie to check if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie carries no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.
Upon login, we will establish several cookies to conserve your login information and your screen display choices. Login cookies stay for two days, while screen options cookies last for a year. If you select “Remember Me”, your login will persist for two weeks. Logging out of your account will remove the login cookies.
In case you edit or publish an article, an additional cookie will be stored in your browser. This cookie, devoid of personal data, merely indicates the post ID of the article you just worked on. It expires after 1 day.
Embedded content from other websites
Our articles may contain embedded content (such as videos, images, articles, etc.). This embedded content from other websites behaves in exactly the same way as if the visitor has directly visited the other website.
Who we share your data with
In the event you request a password reset, the reset email will contain your IP address.
How long do we retain your data
If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This allows us to recognize and approve any subsequent comments automatically instead of maintaining them in a moderation queue.
For users registering on our website, we store the personal information they provide in their user profiles. All users can see, modify, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit this information.
What rights you have over your data
If you have an account on this site or have left comments, you may request to receive a file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You also have the right to request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not encompass any data we are obligated to keep for administrative, legal, or security reasons.
Where your data is sent
Please note that visitor comments might be vetted through an automated spam detection service.
