Who We Are
When you leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the IP address and browser user agent string. We use Akismet to reduce spam, which means that this data, along with our site URL is sent to this service, in order to achieve spam protection. You can learn more about how the data is processed from the Akismet Privacy Page.
These submissions are only kept for customer service purposes they are never used for marketing purposes or shared with third parties.
We use Google’s IP anonymization feature on this website. Thus, Analytics anonymizes the address as soon as technically feasible at the earliest possible stage of the collection network. The IP anonymization/masking takes place as soon as data is received by the Analytics Collection Network. Google uses the masked IPs to evaluate the use of this website, to create reports about website activity and to provide other statistical data.
Opting Out of Google Analytics
You generally can prevent storage of the Analytics cookies by selecting the appropriate settings in your browser.
Google also offers a browser plugin to conveniently prevent data transmission from the Analytics cookies to the Analytics Collection Network. The plugin can be downloaded here: Google Analytics Opt-out.
Pages on this site may include embedded content, like YouTube videos, for example. Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if you visited the other website.
Who Has Access to Your Data
If you have submitted information on this website through a comment form, contact form, or mailing list sign-up, the personal information you provided can be accessed by our system administrators.
Otherwise, there is no personal information we can retain or view regarding yourself.
Third Party Access to Your Data
We don’t share your data with third-parties in a way as to reveal any of your personal information like email, name, etc. The only exceptions to that rule are for partners we have to share limited data with in order to provide the services you expect from us. Please see below:
How Long We Retain Your Data
When you submit a support ticket or a comment, its metadata is retained until (if) you tell us to remove it. We use this data so that we can recognize you and approve your comments automatically instead of holding them for moderation.
If you register on our website, we also store the personal information you provide in your user profile. You can see, edit, or delete your personal information at any time (except changing your username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.
We use the SSL/HTTPS protocol throughout our site. This encrypts our user communications with the servers so that personal identifiable information is not captured/hijacked by third parties without authorization.
In case of a data breach, system administrators will immediately take all needed steps to ensure system integrity, will contact affected users and will attempt to reset passwords if needed.
Your Data Rights
If you have a registered account on this site or have left comments, you can request an exported file of the personal data we retain, including any additional data you have provided to us.
You can also request that we erase any of the personal data we have stored. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes. In short, we cannot erase data that is vital to you being an active customer (i.e. basic account information like an email address).
If you have any questions, want to receive a copy of your stored data or have your data erased, please contact us at [email protected].

Release of Your Data for Legal Purposes
At times it may become necessary or desirable to Sundae Comics, for legal purposes, to release your information in response to a request from a government agency or a private litigant. You agree that we may disclose your information to a third party where we believe, in good faith, that it is desirable to do so for the purposes of a civil action, criminal investigation, or other legal matter. In the event that we receive a subpoena affecting your privacy, we may elect to notify you to give you an opportunity to file a motion to quash the subpoena, or we may attempt to quash it ourselves, but we are not obligated to do either. We may also proactively report you, and release your information to, third parties where we believe that it is prudent to do so for legal reasons, such as our belief that you have engaged in fraudulent activities. You release us from any damages that may arise from or relate to the release of your information to a request from law enforcement agencies or private litigants.
Any passing on of personal data for legal purposes will only be done in compliance with laws of the country you reside in.
