What personal data is collected and why these are collected
When visitors leave comments on this site, the data shown in the comments form are collected, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.
These data may be used for the purpose of getting in touch, if necessary, directly with visitors who request something or share a news tip. These data are never sold or shared with third parties for commercial purposes. Nor would these data be shared with any government authority or entity at any time.
The only exception that such data would be publicly released is if the visitor had issued a written threat of violence to anyone including this site’s webmaster. Or used very foul or vulgar language that the visitor would never utter in front of his or her mother.
Visitors who upload images to the website 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.
Visitors who leave a comment on this site may opt-in to saving his or her name, email address and website in cookies. These are for the visitor’s convenience so that he or she does not have to fill in details again when leaving other comments. These cookies will last for one year.
If the visitor has an account and logs 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 the visitor closes the browser.
When the visitor logs in, this site has set up several cookies to save his or her login information and screen display choices. Login cookies last for two days, and screen options cookies last for a year. If the visitor selects “Remember Me”, his or her login will persist for two weeks. If he or she logs out of the account, the login cookies will be removed.
If the visitor posts a comment, an additional cookie will be saved in his or her browser. This cookie includes no personal data and simply indicates the post ID of the comment. It expires after 1 day.
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 this site shares visitors’ data with
How long we retain your data
If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so the site can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.
For users that register on this website (if any), this website also stores 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.
To change one’s username or handle, please e-mail [email protected].
What rights you have over your data
If you have an account on this site, or have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data held about you, including any data you have provided to my site. You can also request that any personal data held about you in this site be erased. This does not include any data I am obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.
However, as a professional Filipino journalist, I am protected by the “shield law” or Republic Act No. 53 not to be compelled to disclose any of your private information “unless the court or a House or committee of Congress finds that such revelation is demanded by the interest of the State.” I can still choose, though, not to disclose.
Besides, the Philippine government has strengthened the protection of personal data through Republic Act 10173 or the Data Privacy Act, which also carries in Chapter 1, Section 5, a reiteration of The Shield Law provided to journalists.
Section 5. Protection Afforded to Journalists and Their Sources. – Nothing in this Act shall be construed as to have amended or repealed the provisions of Republic Act No. 53, which affords the publishers, editors or duly accredited reporters of any newspaper, magazine or periodical of general circulation protection from being compelled to reveal the source of any news report or information appearing in said publication which was related in any confidence to such publisher, editor, or reporter.
