Who We Are
We are https://kriskristoffersonfan.com, a WordPress fan site based in the UK. You can contact us via email admin.kriskrisoffersonfan.com
What personal data we collect and why we collect it
We collect personal data when required, to keep our website working and to allow us to interact with visitors and provide enough statistical data to manage our website. We do partner with affiliate sites and other 3rd parties to fund the site, and to access needed plugins or technical tools. We sometimes partner with others for other ad hoc reasons when needed. We make every effort to limit this information to the minimum. We collect your name on nickname and email address if you subscribe to our newsletter or for sites updates. When you interact on the site, you might do so through one of your social media accounts. You control what ourselves and others can see in those cases.
We link to 3rd party sites. If you buy or interact with these, they are responsible for their sites which are beyond our control and we can not be responsible for their content. We do choose sites that we regard as reputable, but this is a part-time blog and security is everyone’s job. When you use this site, you accept that this site is provided “as is.”
The site receives some personal data through cookies. We provide information on how yoy can control cookies when browsing this site. Much applies to general browsing, too.
We don’t collect or retention of sensitive personal data, such as data concerning health unless it is posted by the visitor – In a comment, for example. Such information is provided at the visitor’s discretion and not requested by us.
We are a blog. We aim to unite, inform and engage with Kris Kristofferson fans and share items of interest. We mention names and profiles as provided for comments, conversation and for crediting media to it the owner as required. Pictures and video clips are attributed as required by law or courtesy.
Personal data is sometimes provided or generated through technical processes such as contact forms, comments, cookies, analytics, and third-party embeds. Site users provide this information themselves and we use it only for the reasons it was given, and for statistical or tracking purposes to keep the site running. We endeavour to fund the sites through adverts and affiliates in order to keep it running.
By default, WordPress does not collect any personal data about visitors, and only collects the data shown on the User Profile screen from registered users. Some plugins that the site uses may collect personal data. We update the lists of software that might do this as we update the site and we aim to do this in a timely manner. At this time, the site does not engage in any direct selling.
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.
We mostly use contact forms for comments and subscriptions. We collect only the minimum required information, mostly just a name (or screen name) and an email address so we can email requested or opted in information.
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.

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.
Who we share your data with
We use GoogleAnylitics and other Webmaster tools to run the site efficiently. The purposes are for regional purposes, to identify where local laws apply and to target affiliate marketing, advertising and relevant content. We share this only as required by the vendors and 3rd parties that we deal with to run our site, and anonymously where practical. We use this for statistical, planning and technical purposes. We never share or sell email addresses provided to us for other reasons. We use a hosting service and rely on other support companies that might be based in different countries.
