Privacy Policy

Effective Date: August 5, 2023

Thank you for visiting Sleek Retreats (https://sleekretreats.com), owned and operated by SiteWebster, a digital marketing agency based in Edmonton, Alberta Canada, with the owner Mike Peryk. In this Privacy Policy, we outline how we collect, use, and protect your personal information when you visit our website.

Who we are

Our website address is https://sleekretreats.com.

Comments

When visitors leave comments on the site, we collect the data shown in the comments form, the visitor’s IP address, and browser user agent string to help detect spam.

An anonymized string created from your email address (also called a hash) may be provided to the Gravatar service to see if you are using it. The Gravatar service privacy policy is available at https://automattic.com/privacy/. After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.

Media

If you upload images to the website, please avoid including images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS). Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the website.

Embedded content from other websites

Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g., videos, images, articles) from other websites. Embedded content from other websites behaves in the same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.

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

Who we share your data with

If you request a password reset, your IP address will be included in the reset email to help enhance security measures.

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 who 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 to ensure smooth functionality and user support.

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. This includes any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. Please note that this may not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.

Where your data is sent

Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service to protect the website and its users from spam and malicious activities.

Email Newsletter

When you subscribe to our newsletter through MailChimp, we collect your email address and first name to send you updates, promotions, and relevant information about Sleek Retreats. We value your privacy, and your email address and name will be used solely for the purpose of sending you our newsletter. We do not sell or share this information with third parties.

Security Measures

We take reasonable precautions to protect your personal information from unauthorized access, use, or disclosure. However, please be aware that no data transmission over the internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. While we strive to protect your information, we cannot guarantee the security of any information you transmit to us, and you do so at your own risk.

Third-Party Services

To enhance your experience on our website, we may use third-party services that have their own privacy policies. These services may include analytics tools, social media widgets, and embedded content. We encourage you to review the privacy policies of these third-party services to understand how they handle your personal information.

Children’s Privacy

Our website is not intended for children under the age of 13. We do not knowingly collect or store any personal information from children under 13. If we learn that we have inadvertently collected personal information from a child under the age of 13, we will promptly delete it from our records.

Changes to the Privacy Policy

We may update our Privacy Policy from time to time to reflect changes in our practices or for other operational, legal, or regulatory reasons. Any updates to the Privacy Policy will be posted on this page with the effective date mentioned at the beginning of the policy. Please check this page periodically for any changes.
