Privacy Policy for Invest Cherokee

Who We Are: Our website address is:

Comments: When visitors leave comments on our site, we collect the data shown in the comments form, as well as the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to assist with spam detection. An anonymized string created from your email address (also known as a hash) may be sent to the Gravatar service to check its usage. The Gravatar service privacy policy is available here. Once your comment is approved, your profile picture becomes publicly visible in the context of your comment.

Media: If you upload images to our website, we recommend avoiding images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) as visitors can download and extract this data from images on the site.

Cookies: If you leave a comment, you have the option to save your name, email address, and website in cookies. This is for convenience, so you don’t have to re-enter your details for future comments. These cookies last for one year.

Visiting our login page will set a temporary cookie to verify your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser. Logging in sets several cookies to save your login information and display choices, lasting two days to a year, depending on your selections. Logging out removes these cookies.

Editing or publishing an article saves an additional cookie in your browser, indicating the post ID of the article you edited, expiring after 1 day.

Embedded Content from Other Websites: Articles on our site may contain embedded content (e.g., videos, images, articles). This content behaves as if the visitor has accessed the host website directly. Such websites may collect data, use cookies, embed third-party tracking, and monitor interaction with the embedded content, especially if you’re logged into an account on that site.

Who We Share Your Data With: Should you request a password reset, the reset email will include your IP address.

How Long We Retain Your Data: Comments and their metadata are stored indefinitely, allowing us to recognize and auto-approve subsequent comments. For registered users, we store the personal information provided in their profile. Users can view, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (username changes are not permitted). Website administrators can also view and edit this information.

Your Data Rights: If you have an account or have left comments on our site, you can request an exported file of the personal data we store about you, including any data you’ve provided. You can also ask us to erase any personal data we hold about you, excluding data we’re required to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.

Where Your Data Is Sent: Visitor comments may be verified through an automated spam detection service.
