Who we are
Our website address is: https://projectbackstage.com. We are known as Project Backstage, and are operated by Project Backstage LLC out of Missouri.
What personal data we collect and why we collect it
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.
Any information that you submit to Project Backstage via a contact form, will only be used for internal use only. We do not sell, distribute, or disperse information provided to us in any form intentionally. Your information will be used for the reason that you contacted us, then discarded after the appropriate resolution to the contact was completed.
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 visit our login page, 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.
The Project Backstage website uses various analytic software to determine how to adjust the website for our users. Some of this software will be provided by a 3rd party. Please see “Embedded content from other websites” on how this may effect you.
Who we share your data with
Project Backstage does not share date with any outside company or agency. All information that we gain through our website is used for internal use only, and is never sold or distributed.
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.
How we protect your data
We routinely have technology professionals evaluate our security measures and practices. We take all precautions necessary to ensure that your data is safe. We also use SSL encryption throughout the Project Backstage web services as an additional measure of protection.
What data breach procedures we have in place
In the event of a data breach that we identify, we will notify any users that could be potentially effected within 24 hours of confirmation of such breach. Depending on the type of breach, further actions may be provided by Project Backstage.
