Who We Are

Welcome to The Black Honkeys’ official website! You can visit us at:

Your Comments Matter

When you leave a comment on our site, we collect the information you’ve entered in the comment form, as well as your IP address and browser user agent string. This is to prevent spam and enhance your experience.

We use your email address to check if you have a Gravatar account, which allows your profile picture to be displayed with your comment once it’s approved. Gravatar’s privacy policy can be found here.

Uploading Media

Be mindful when uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS). Visitors might download these images and extract the location details.

Cookies: Enhancing Your Experience

If you comment on our site, you can choose to save your name, email, and website in cookies, avoiding the hassle of re-entering this information for future comments. These cookies last for one year.

Visiting our login page triggers a temporary cookie to check if your browser accepts cookies, containing no personal data and removed when you close your browser.

Logging in sets cookies to remember your login info and display preferences, with a lifespan of two days to a year, depending on your choices. Selecting “Remember Me” keeps you logged in for two weeks, and logging out removes these cookies.

Editing or publishing an article sets a cookie to note the post ID of the article you edited, expiring after 1 day.

Embedded Content

Our articles may include content (like videos or images) from other sites, which behaves as if you’ve visited those sites directly. These sites may collect data, use cookies, and monitor your interaction with the embedded content.

Data Sharing

Your IP address is included in password reset emails for security purposes.

Retaining Your Data

Comments and their metadata are kept indefinitely to recognize and approve follow-up comments automatically. For registered users, we store the personal information provided in your profile, accessible and editable by you at any time (username changes are not possible). Website administrators can also access and edit this information.

Your Rights

If you have an account or have left comments, you can request an exported file of your personal data we hold, including any data you’ve provided. You can also request the deletion of your personal data, excluding data retained for legal, administrative, or security needs.

Automated Spam Detection

Comment screening may involve an automated spam detection service.
