If 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 detect and automatically remove spam.
If you upload images to the website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Visitors to the website could download and extract any location data from images you share on the website.
If you fill out a contact form, we will not share your name or contact information with a third party without your permission.

Embedded content from other websites
Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, Tweets, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves as if you have visited the other website.
We collect and analyze data such as whether visitors access the site from a desktop or mobile device, and the Internet Service Provider used. We also see which pages are most visited and how much time each visitor spent on a page. As collected, none of this information is personally identifiable to an individual. These data allow us to update and modify the site to meet the needs of our visitors and how they interact with the site. CT Zebras will only use this information to improve the site for you.
We do not intend to share any personal data without your permission unless required by law.
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.
We do not intend to share your data without your approval unless required by law.

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.
