Who we are

LifeWiseMA.com is dedicated to providing the best overall treatment possible to members of the community seeking support in their daily lives. We hold that same standard to your privacy, as detailed in this policy.

What personal data we collect and why we collect it

When you submit a form on this website, you may opt into giving your name and email address as a means of communicating with you. This may create what’s called a “cookie” in your browser. You can choose to opt-out of or delete cookies in your browser settings. Any personal information obtained about you for the purposes of contacting you is cleared after a period of 30 days.

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 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.

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.

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.

These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracking your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.

Analytics

In order to provide an optimal user experience for visitors to our website, we may collect anonymous data such as time spent on site and pages visited. This information is only used for maintaining the site, and is not used for re marketing or sold to third parties.

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. If you have any questions regarding our privacy policy, please contact us using an online form.
