What personal data we collect and why we collect it:

Personal data is not just created by you as the user interacting with our site, Grace Possible. It is also generated from technical processes that you use on our site, such as contact forms, comments, cookies, analytics, and third party embeds. Grace Possible’s website is created using WordPress. By default, WordPress does not collect any personal data about visitors, and it only collects the data shown on the User Profile screen from registered users. However some of the plugins used in creating and maintaining this website may collect personal data. These will be covered in this policy.

Contact forms

This site uses the Contact Form 7 plugin to create the forms used throughout the website. These forms collect data, such as your name and email address. WordPress, Get Response, and Grace Possible will have access to this information. This plugin stores the data input sent through the forms found on this website, along with any meta information about the submissions. This includes the time stamp, the origin IP address, and the browser. You can read more about Contact Form 7’s own privacy policy, here.

This site uses Get Response, both the plugin and the add-on, as it’s online marketing platform (you can see their full policy here). When you sign up and subscribe with Grace Possible you are doing so through the Contact Form 7 plugin that connects to Get Response. Any information you disclose will be held for future mailing purposes until such a time as you unsubscribe. Get Response will safeguard this information and only allow Grace Possible to access it and use it to send you information. This allows us to add site visitors to our contact list, update contact information, track site visits, and pass ecommerce data to Get Response.


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 have an account and you log in to this site, 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 option cookies last for a year. If you select “Remember Me,” your login will continue for two weeks. If you log out of your account, the login cookies will be removed.

Embedded content from other websites

Content on this site may include embedded content (such as videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the same way as if the visitor has visited the other website. These other websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content.


When visitors leave comments on the site, we collect the data shown in the comments form, along with the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help with spam detection.

An anonymized string created from your email address (also called a hash) may be provided to the Gravatar service to see if you are using it. The Gravatar service privacy policy is available here. Once your comment is approved, your Gravatar profile picture will be visible in the context of your comment.


Who we share your data with

By default WordPress does not share any personal data with anyone. For this site, the following third parties are used: WooCommerce and WooCommerce Square plugins, (see their policy here), and the Jetpack plugin (see their policy here).

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. Other collected information will be retained indefinitely or at the discretion of Grace Possible.

For users that register on our website, 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 with this site, or have left comments, you can request that we erase certain 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, in this case Aksimet (see below for more details).
