Privacy Policy

Who we are

Our website address is: https://milesandwaves.com.


When visitors comment on the site, we gather the information provided in the comment form, along with their IP address and browser user agent string. This helps us detect and prevent spam.

An anonymised string generated from your email (known as a hash) might be used with Gravatar to check if you have a profile image. Once your comment is approved, your profile picture becomes visible to the public alongside your comment. Check Gravatar’s privacy policy at https://automattic.com/privacy/.


When you add images to our website, avoid including embedded location data (EXIF GPS). Visitors can download and extract location info from the images.


When you comment on our site, you can choose to save your name, email, and website using cookies. This way, you won’t need to re-enter your information when you leave another comment. These cookies will remain valid for one year.

When you go to our login page, a temporary cookie is placed to check if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie doesn’t store personal data and is deleted when you close your browser.

Upon logging in, we’ll establish cookies to retain your login details and screen preferences. Login cookies remain active for two days, while screen option cookies endure for a year. Opting for “Remember Me” keeps you logged in for two weeks, and logging out removes the login cookies.

When you edit or publish an article, a new cookie is stored in your browser. This cookie doesn’t contain personal data, only the post ID of the edited article. It lasts for 1 day.

Embedded content from other websites

This site’s articles might contain embedded content like videos, images, and articles. Such content from external websites acts just like visiting those sites directly.

These sites might gather your data, use cookies, include extra third-party tracking, and oversee how you interact with such content. This includes tracking interactions when you’re logged into your account on those sites.

Who we share your data with

When you ask for a password reset, your IP address will be included in the reset email.

How long we retain your data

When you leave a comment, both the comment itself and its details are kept indefinitely. This helps us automatically identify and approve subsequent comments instead of keeping them in a moderation queue.

When users sign up on our website, we save the information they provide in their user profile. All users can view, modify, or remove their personal details whenever they wish, except for their username. Site administrators also have access to view and edit this information.

What rights you have over your data

If you’re a site member or have commented, you can ask for a file of your data we have, including what you’ve given us. You can also request we delete your data, except for what we must keep for admin, legal, or security reasons.

Where your data is sent

Visitor comments could undergo an automated spam detection check.
