Who we are
Our website address is http://threadbent.com. We are a small business based in the United States.
This page will describe how we use the data that we collect, use, and maintain. It will be updated regularly as the laws and standards around data privacy and protection change.
What personal data we collect and why we collect it
We collect personal information about our customers. With a few exceptions, this information is limited to the kind of information that can be found in an address book: first name, last name, address, email, and phone number. We use this information to provide our customers with goods and services. We do not sell personal information to anyone and only share it with third parties who are facilitating the delivery of our products.
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 upload images to the website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the website.
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 one year.
If you visit our login page, we will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.
When you log in, we will also set up several cookies to save your login information and your screen display choices. Login cookies last for two days, and screen options cookies last for a year. If you select “Remember Me”, your login will persist for two weeks. If you log out of your account, the login cookies will be removed.
If you edit or publish an article, an additional cookie will be saved in your browser. This cookie includes no personal data and simply indicates the post ID of the article you just edited. It expires after 1 day.
Purposes for processing the personal information collected on our website
We have a legitimate interest in understanding how our customers and potential customers use our website. This helps us provide more relevant products and services.
Email and SMS Messages
We collect your email and phone number when you opt in to receiving marketing emails and text messages. You may opt-out of the Service at any time. Text the single keyword command STOP to +18446181321 or click the unsubscribe link (where available) in any text message to cancel. You’ll receive a one-time opt-out confirmation text message. No further messages will be sent to your mobile device, unless initiated by you. If you have subscribed to other ThreadBent mobile message programs and wish to cancel, except where applicable law requires otherwise, you will need to opt out separately from those programs by following the instructions provided in their respective mobile terms.
Embedded content from other websites
Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.
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.
For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. 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.
What rights you have over your data
If you have an account on this site or 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.
Where we send your data
Because we are located in the United States, the personal data that we collect, use, and maintain is also transferred to or stored in the United States. We do not actively sell to jurisdictions outside of the United States at this time.
Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.
