Cookies

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 have an account and you log in to this site, 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.

Embedded content from other websites

Articles 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.

These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracking your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.

Analytics

Data Used: We use Google Analytics to track site usage. Please refer to the appropriate Google Analytics documentation for the specific type of data it collects. This site also incorporates WooCommerce (also owned by Automattic) and this feature simultaneously and having all purchase tracking explicitly enabled, purchase events will send Google Analytics the following information: order number, product id and name, product category, total cost, and quantity of items purchased.

Activity Tracked: This feature sends page view events over to Google Analytics for consumption. For sites running WooCommerce-powered stores, some additional events are also sent to Google Analytics: shopping cart additions and removals, product listing views and clicks, product detail views, and purchases. Tracking for each specific WooCommerce event needs to be enabled by the site owner.

Akismet

We collect information about visitors who comment on Sites that use our Akismet anti-spam service. The information we collect depends on how the User sets up Akismet for the Site, but typically includes the commenter’s IP address, user agent, referrer, and Site URL (along with other information directly provided by the commenter such as their name, username, email address, and the comment itself).

Who we share your data with

We use the following trusted third-party applications to process payments: Authorize.net, Amazon Pay & Login with Amazon, and PayPal. As a result, we do not handle, have access to, or store credit card information for orders placed on our website.

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 profile. 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.

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.

How we protect your data

Payments

We accept payments through Authorize.net, Amazon Pay & Login with Amazon, and PayPal.

This website technology supports Accept.js from Authorize.Net for improved security, meeting PCI SAQ A-EP compliance standards. When Accept.js is used, customer credit card information is no longer sent directly through our server and instead is handled directly by Authorize.Net. This technology does not interfere our customers experience in the checkout process, but payment data is more secure behind the scenes.

You can learn more about Accept.js here: https://developer.authorize.net/api/reference/features/acceptjs.html

SSL is required for PCI compliance due to the direct checkout to ensure that our customers’ credit card information is secure. HTTPS, the secure protocol for the web, safeguards our visitors by creating encrypted connections between our visitors and Blue Thunder Technologies website, protecting our visitors’ privacy and the data they share with you over the internet. Our website technology HTTPS is enabled with HTTP/2 (the latest hypertext transfer protocol), which also improves website load times for the best customer experience. Let’s Encrypt is a certificate authority who is providing BTT SSL certificate.
