Who we share your data with

While running giveaways on this site, we use Rafflecopter. It is a form that is embedded in the giveaway post. We use this to record entries into the giveaway. To enter the giveaway, an entrant must choose to either sign into the Rafflecopter form via Facebook or they can opt to sign in with their name and email address. After they are signed in, they can choose which entries they would like to complete. There are further details about how giveaways are run in our Giveaway Rules page you can see here: http://www.dustinnikkimommyofthree.com/giveaway-rulesentriesfaqs

DustinNikki Mommy of Three does NOT share or sell emails or any other information and does NOT save or share any personal information other than to send winner info to sponsoring company to claim prize. Other than name/email, personal information is not entered on the Rafflecopter form. After a winner is drawn, winner is notified via email they provided in the form. Information provided by the winner is then sent to sponsoring company for prize shipment. Once that happens and winner has received prize, all information is deleted.

How long we retain your data

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.

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.

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

Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service. We use Akismet Anti-Spam by Automattic which checks our comments and contact form submissions against their global database of spam to prevent our site from publishing malicious content. We can review the comment spam it catches on our blog’s “Comments” admin screen. There we can delete the spam comments permanently.
