Directory Listings

When you provide us with personal information (such as your name and email address) as part of a directory listing request, we imply that you consent to our collecting it and using it for that specific reason only.

If after you opt-in, you change your mind, you may withdraw your consent at anytime, by contacting us at hello@ethicalfair.com.

When visitors leave comments on the Website we collect the data shown in the comments form, the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection, which may be checked through an automated spam detection service.

Your information 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.

Comments will be retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognise and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.
