Our news team and reporters work in exactly the same way when handling your data. Trusted, reliable and in confidence.
Who we are
Our website addresses are https://wtxnews.co.uk and https://wtxnews.com/. This policy applies to both of them including our subdomains. We process your data in accordance with EU cookie law and privacy data.
We work with Karam Media for all our advertising and other partners all of whom conform to the 3rd party cookie law data from 2022.
Your experience with our website is our priority. When you 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.
If you upload images to the website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included.
Visitors to the website cannot download and extract any location data from images on the website.
Our images are protected by copyright and you should seek permission and purchase a license before using them from our WTX News Syndications & licensing team.
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.
If you select “Remember Me”, your login will persist for two weeks. If you log out of your account, the login cookies will be removed.
If you edit or publish an article, an additional cookie will be saved in your browser. This cookie includes no personal data and simply indicates the post ID of the article you just edited. It expires after 1 day.
Embedded content from other websites
News articles and videos 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.
Please note that the same copyright policies apply to them and for further clarification please visit the website of the owners.
Who we share your data with
If you request a password reset, your IP address will be included in the reset email. But we do not share your data with any third parties. Only WTX News will handle and process your data.
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 profiles.
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. If you are unable to delete you can always contact our team who will assist you.
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.
