Who we are:
What personal data we collect and why we collect it.
The only personal information we collect is via our contact forms and reviews. We retain email in our site email systems until it is no longer required. Reviews are retained indefinitely.
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.
An anonymized string created from your email address (also called a hash) may be provided to the CleanTalk service to verify you are not a spam agent. After comment approval, any information provided is visible on the website.
If you upload images to the website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Images uploaded as part of contact emails will only be saved within our email application.
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 approximately one year.
Links to Other Websites
This page contains links to other websites. The privacy policies for those sites are outlined on their pages.
We may use website usage analytics to improve our site and your experience. This data is not shared and is used at an aggregate, trend, level.
How Long We Retain Your Data
If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely.
What rights you have over your data
If you have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. 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.
We use CleanTalk to protect against spam and malware. Any contact emails or comments you provide will pass through this service. This service helps protect the site and your data. If we believe our site has been hacked and your contact or comment information has been compromised, we will notify you via email.
We minimize administrative access to the backend of our website to employees of John’s Upholstery. We occasionally provide administrative access to theme or plug-in vendors who are assisting us to resolve issues. Once issues are resolved, those user accounts are removed.
