Privacy Policy – Abledragon Marketing-Owned Websites

Thank you for visiting our website. Please read this Privacy Notice before using our website or submitting any personal data.

This Privacy Notice sets out the data processing practices carried out on all websites owned by Abledragon Marketing Limited, through use of the Internet and any other electronic communications networks. Abledragon Marketing Limited is registered in Hong Kong (registration number 58128305-000-03-12-1) and trades as ‘Abledragon’.

The data controller collecting the personal data described herein is Abledragon Marketing Limited.

If you have any requests concerning your personal data or any queries with regard to these practices please click here to contact us.

Our websites may contain links to other third party websites which are outside our control and are not covered by this Privacy Notice. If you access other sites using the links provided, the operators of these sites may collect information from you which will be used by them in accordance with their privacy policy, which may differ from ours. We are not responsible for the privacy policies of third party websites.

Data Collection and Intended Use

On Abledragon Marketing Limited websites we may collect two (2) types of data about website visitors:

  1. Active data (such as name, telephone number, e-mail address, etc.) when voluntarily submitted by visitors for registration, newsletter signup, etc.
  2. Passive data (such as browser type, IP address, page reference, date and time of visit, etc.)

When visitors leave comments on one of our websites 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 anonymised 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 here: https://automattic.com/privacy/. After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.

If you upload images to one of our websites, 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 websites.

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 one of our websites (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.

The IP address of visitors, user ID of logged in users, and username of login attempts are conditionally logged to check for malicious activity and to protect the site from specific kinds of attacks. Examples of conditions when logging occurs include login attempts, log out requests, requests for suspicious URLs, changes to site content, and password updates. This information is retained for 60 days.

The personal data submitted by you are used only for the express purposes stated at the location where you provide it, i.e., in order to receive press releases, newsletters or other Opt-In purposes. We do not use personally identifiable data for direct marketing or unsolicited follow-up unless you have given us your express permission for such use (confirmed opt-In).

Disclosure of data

We do not share personally identifiable data collected at our sites with third parties except for the limited instances set out below. The exceptions are:

  • We may transfer your personal data to our partner agencies (for example, email service providers, companies providing automation of administrative tasks such as regular backups) who assist us in administering the site(s). If you leave a comment, submit personal information via a contact form, or otherwise exchange personal details with us, it is possible that we may use these services to manage that data. They can only use the data for the purposes of maintaining our site(s) or service(s). These partner agencies are bound by a contractual agreement to keep your data private and secure.
  • We may also disclose personal data if we are required to do so by law or if in our good faith judgment, such action is reasonably necessary to comply with legal process, to respond to any claims, or to protect the rights of Abledragon Marketing Limited, its customers and the public.
  • In the event of an acquisition of all or part of Abledragon Marketing Limited by another company, or in the event that Abledragon Marketing Limited were to sell or dispose of all or a part of the Abledragon Marketing Limited business, the acquirer would have access to the data maintained by that Abledragon Marketing Limited business, which could include personal data, subject to applicable law. Similarly, data may be transferred as part of a reorganization (Business merging) or insolvency proceedings.
  • Our websites are part of a network of sites that protects members against distributed brute force attacks. To enable this protection, the IP address of visitors attempting to log into the site is shared with a service provided by ithemes.com. Please see the iThemes Privacy Policy for details of how that company manages your data.
  • This site is scanned for potential malware and vulnerabilities by Sucuri’s SiteCheck. We do not send personal information to Sucuri; however, Sucuri could find personal information posted publicly (such as in comments) during their scan. For more information, please see Sucuri’s privacy policy for details of how that company manages your data.
  • We may disclose data to prevent or investigate possible wrongdoing in connection with use of our websites (for example if a website is hacked)
  • We may disclose data to protect Abledragon Marketing Limited against legal liability
