THA seeks to protect the privacy of people who use this web site and to disclose what its use means to them and to their own computers. THA also seeks to protect the integrity of this web site from unauthorized use or misuse. THA means to further these purposes with the following policy.
Who we are
Our website address is: https://tacomahousing.org.
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.
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.
This web site logs the IP addresses of visitors to the website. An IP address is the unique numerical identity of your host computer. When THA “logs” an IP address, it means that the THA website associates a visit or series of visits to that unique numerical identity. THA does not collect identifying personal information.
Who we share your data with
Non-Disclosure of Personal Information
The web site may allow users if they wish to send emails or other information to THA. THA does not disclose users’ email addresses or other personal identifying information to third parties without written permission from the user.
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.
The THA website may contain links to other websites that are not under THA’s control. THA provides these links as a convenience to users of its own web site. Links to such sites do not imply that THA endorses them. THA is not responsible for their privacy practices or content.
THA monitors network traffic to identify unauthorized attempts either to upload or change information on the web site or to damage the site. Anyone using this website expressly consents to such monitoring. THA has security measures in place to protect the loss, misuse and alteration of the information under its control.
