What personal data we collect and why we collect it

We use the All In One Security & Firewall plugin that may collect IP addresses for security reasons such as mitigating brute force login threats and malicious activity. The collected information is stored on our server. No information is transmitted to third parties or remote server locations.

We use the chat plugin. collect non-personally-identifying information and potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) address for users that use the service and visitors. For details, please refer to the privacy policy here.

We also use the WP Google Maps plugin with the WP Google Map GDPR compliance notice below:

WP Google Map GDPR Notice

By searching for an SD Drain® dealer using the WP Google Maps plugin you agree for your personal data to be processed by Rust Sales, Inc., for the purpose(s) of displaying map tiles, geocoding addresses and calculating and display directions.

You agree for your personal data, provided via map API calls, to be processed by the API provider, for the purposes of geocoding (converting addresses to coordinates), reverse geocoding and generating directions.

Some visual components of WP Google Maps use 3rd party libraries which are loaded over the network. At present the libraries are Google Maps, Open Street Map, jQuery DataTables and FontAwesome. When loading resources over a network, the 3rd party server will receive your IP address and User Agent string amongst other details. Please refer to the Privacy Policy of the respective libraries for details on how they use data and the process to exercise your rights under the GDPR regulations.

WP Google Maps uses jQuery DataTables to display sortable, searchable tables, such as that seen in the Advanced Marker Listing and on the Map Edit Page. jQuery DataTables in certain circumstances uses a cookie to save and later recall the “state” of a given table – that is, the search term, sort column and order and current page. This data is held in local storage and retained until this is cleared manually. No libraries used by WP Google Maps transmit this information.

Please see here and here for Google’s terms. Please also see Google’s Privacy Policy. We do not send the API provider any personally identifying information, or information that could uniquely identify your device.
