Privacy Policy

Taking your privacy seriously

Here at Print Collective we take your privacy seriously. As a not for profit organisation we are exempt from registering with the Information Commissioners Office, but you can rest assured we comply with General Data Protection Regulations.

The 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 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.

Embedded content from other websites

Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behave 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. This includes tracking your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.

Name and email address

If you have agreed to submit a contribution to Print Collective, we will store your contact and submission details on file in a secure location. This is purely for administrative purposes, to help with the smooth running of the site.

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.

If you submit a short contributor bio to include with your submission, this will be included and displayed on the site for as long as the piece is on the site.

What rights you have over your data

If you have left comments on this site you can request to receive 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.

If you have submitted a piece of work to Print Collective, you can request for us to remove the post from our site should you wish.

Should you have included a user bio with your submission, you can request we remove this from the site.

Where we send your data

Visitor comments are checked through an automated spam detection service.

We do not and will never sell your data on to third parties. We will never give your contact information out to others without your explicit consent.
