What personal information we collect and why we collect it
Registration of user profile
The user profile allows you to log in to fishrecord and is used to recognize you as a unique user of the service and to communicate with you. In the user profile, name, address, e-mail and phone number and nationality are stored.
In order to report catches, you must be registered as a fisherman with the rights holder that has an agreement with Fishrecord. As a fisherman, you will have access to report catches through a simple browser-based form. The form stores your user ID, the name of the rights holders you are reporting for.
When visitors post comments on the page, the information is stored in the comment form in addition to the IP address of the visitor and the visitor’s browser version. This is done to help avoid rogue comments.
An anonymous text string generated from your email address (also called a “hash”) can be sent to the Gravatar service to check if you have an account there. The Gravatar Privacy Statement is located here: https://automattic.com/privacy/. After your comment has been approved, your profile picture will be visible to anyone in connection with your comment.
If you upload photos to the site, avoid uploading images that contain information about the place it is taken (EXIF GPS). Visitors to the page can download and retrieve such information from images on the page.

Cookies with login information expire after two days, while those with display choices last for one year. If you tick “Remember me”, your login information will be stored for two weeks.
