Who we are
Our website address is http://www.workslashlife.com. We are a simple site dedicated to sharing information about traveling and living abroad for families.
What personal data we collect and why we collect it
In general, we try to collect as little information as possible. We don’t ask for more than we need to deliver the content you’re looking for. For example, when you submit a question, we don’t ask for your name or email address. When you sign up for our mailing list, we also don’t ask for your name.
Here’s some more information about the data we collect and what we use it for:
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.
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.
There are a few places on the site where you may leave comments or submit questions about life in Hungary. We don’t ask for your name or email address. When asking questions about life in Hungary, we recommend not including any unnecessary information that may be used to identify you.
If you leave a comment on our site you may opt-in to saving your name, email address and website in cookies. These are for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for one year.
If you have an account and you log in to this site, we will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.
When you log in, we will also set up several cookies to save your login information and your screen display choices. Login cookies last for two days, and screen options cookies last for a year. If you select “Remember Me”, your login will persist for two weeks. If you log out of your account, the login cookies will be removed.
If you edit or publish an article, an additional cookie will be saved in your browser. This cookie includes no personal data and simply indicates the post ID of the article you just edited. It expires after 1 day.
Embedded content from other websites
Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.
You have the option of submitting your email address to join our mailing list. We use MailChimp for our mailing services. Any email address you submit via our form is sent to MailChimp and stored there for the purpose of our sending you our newsletter. MailChimp has shared some information online about how their policies protect your data. You can find that information in Section 3, Privacy for Contacts, of MailChimp’s policy. You may unsubscribe at any time; just follow the links in the emails or click here.
Who we share your data with
As noted above, when you sign up for our mailing list, your email address is sent to MailChimp.
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 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.
Where we send your data
Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.
If you have any questions, please contact us at [email protected].
How we protect your data
This site uses SSL encryption to protect the transfer of data.
