Comments You Leave on our Site

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 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.

Media Uploaded to Our Site

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.

Embedded Website Contact forms

We use the embedded contact forms as part of our website platform through WordPress.com, and the information collected is emailed directly to a private, school email address.

Personal Online Data Terms

Who we share your data with?

Whistler Waldorf does not collect your data for any third party purpose or for use by other parties other than Whistler Waldorf use.

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 do 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.

When we may send your data…

In the instance of visitor comments or posts, they may be checked through an automated spam detection service.


Any questions about our privacy policy as it relates to our website, blogs, newsletters and all additional information which is available online for external communication can be sent to Communication @ Whistler Waldorf.
