Who are we?

Our website address is: https://treelight.eu.



When you leave a comment on the website, Treelight collects the data you entered into the comment form, your IP address and the browser user agent string to help spam detection.
A hash (an anonymised string created from your email address) may be provided to the Gravatar service if you are using it. The Gravatar privacy policy is available on the Automattic website: https://automattic.com/privacy/. Once your comment has been approved, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.



If you upload images to the website, ensure they do not include embedded GPS location data (EXIF data). If they do, visitors to the website can download the images and view the location data.



If you leave a comment on our website, you have the option to allow us to store your name, email address and website in a cookie. We do this to improve your experience of our website and to ensure that you do not have to re-enter this information every time you add a new comment. The cookies expire after one year.

If you have an account and log in to our website, we store a temporary cookie to determine whether your browser accepts cookies. This cookie does not contain any personal data and is deleted as soon as you close the browser.

When you log in, we store some cookies about your login details and display options. Login cookies expire after 2 days and display option cookies after 1 year. If you check “Remember me”, the system will save your login details for two weeks. Once you log out, the login cookies will be deleted.

When you edit or publish an article, an additional cookie will be stored in your browser. This cookie does not contain any personal data, rather just the post ID of the article you have just edited. This cookie expires after 1 day.


Embedded content from other websites

Articles on this website may contain embedded content such as videos, images, messages, etc. Embedded content from other websites behaves as if the visitor were visiting the other website.

These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed third-party tracking, and monitor your interactions with that embedded content, including interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.


Who do we share your data with?

If you request a password reset, your IP address will appear in the reset email.


How long do we keep your information?

If you leave a comment, the system will save your comment and its metadata indefinitely. This allows us to automatically recognise and approve follow-up comments without moderating them.

For users who register on our website, we also store personal information in their user profile. All users can view, edit or delete their personal information (with the exception of the username) at any time. Website administrators can also view and edit the information.


What rights do you have over your personal information?

If you have created an account on this website or have posted comments, you may request an exported file of the personal information we have collected about you, including any information you have provided to us. You can also request that your personal information is deleted. This does not apply to information we are required to keep for administrative, legal or security purposes.


Where do we send your information?

Visitor comments may be checked using an automated spam detection service.
