What personal data we collect and why we collect it


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.

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: After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.


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.

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.

These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracking your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.


Whom we share your data with

No knowingly with anybody. (Possibly with the maker of the occasional plugin.)

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.

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 we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any 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.

Your contact information

It is given solely for the purpose of membership in TheFig 1stfruit’s private website and only stored for the duration of your membership and the purpose to address customer support issues.

Additional information

How we protect your data

1-The general SSL cryptography concerning hashing every byte of message sent/received:


Asymmetric Encryption

Asymmetric encryption (or public-key cryptography) uses a separate key for encryption and decryption. Anyone can use the encryption key (public key) to encrypt a message. However, decryption keys (private keys) are secret. This way only the intended receiver can decrypt the message. Asymmetric keys are typically 1024 or 2048 bits. However, keys smaller than 2048 bits are no longer considered safe to use. 2048-bit keys have enough unique encryption codes that we won’t write out the number here (it’s 617 digits). Though larger keys can be created, the increased computational burden is so significant that keys larger than 2048 bits are rarely used. To put it into perspective, it would take an average computer more than 14 billion years to crack a 2048-bit certificate. 2-Security protocol plugin that has prevented all such attacks during previous years with several simple measures (not a single incident).

  • Captcha
  • multiple login attempt shutoff
  • firewall
  • .htaccess coding
  • WP specific configuration code
  • IP blocking via blacklists
  • membership plugin protection from unauthorized access of all files
  • SFTP protocol
  • email verification upon signup
  • email verification by payment processor and more.

What data breach procedures we have in place

Data are backed up daily for the event that, should it ever happen, a new, clean installation can be the first step; next, you would be informed to change your password and, if you use our payment processor- other than a direct credit card charge- it would provide yet another safety measure and nothing else to be done, if you use different passwords for each entity respectively.

What third parties we receive data from

No ‘third’ parties.

What automated decision making and/or profiling we do with user data

The website operator has the occasional look at visitor data.

Industry regulatory disclosure requirements

Domain Registrar policy.

Web Hosting provider.

The entity that provides your browser, as well as your personal security measures via plugins and extensions.
