What personal data we collect and why we collect it

Identifying Information

In general, you can visit the Site without telling us who you are or providing any information about yourself. In some areas of the Site, we ask you to provide information that will enable us to process an order, offer services that require registration, assist you with technical support issues or to follow up with you. Generally, POPE’S PROPANE SERVICE requests identifying information when you:

  • Register on any of our web sites.
  • Place an order.
  • Provide feedback to an online survey or tell us about an idea or suggestion.
  • Participate in a rebate program, contest, or other promotional offer.
  • Request a SPECIAL SERVICE

In these instances, POPE’S PROPANE SERVICE will ask for your name, address, e-mail address, phone number and other appropriate information needed to provide you with these services. In all instances, if you receive a newsletter or other mailing from us, you will always be able to “unsubscribe” to these mailings at any time.

Comments

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: https://automattic.com/privacy/.  After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.

Media

If you upload images to the website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the website.

Contact Forms

If you fill out a contact form on our website, we collect the information you provide so that we may in turn further provide you with information you need to do business with us.

reCAPTCHA

This site uses reCAPTCHA3, a free service from Google, that places an invisible reCAPTCHA on all contact forms on this site which will determine if a bot is being used to submit the contact form, and then block that submission. A Google cookie may be placed on your browser and information from your browser may be transmitted to Google during your visit to our site. This plugin query includes the sending of the truncated IP address and possibly other data required by Google for the reCAPTCHA service. Only in exceptional cases is the full IP address relayed to a Google server in the U.S. and then truncated there. The IP address provided by reCAPTCHA from your browser will not be merged with any other data from Google. This data collection is subject to the data protection regulations of Google Inc. For more information about Google’s privacy policy, please visit https://policies.google.com/. By submitting any of our contact forms and using the reCAPTCHA service, you consent to the processing of data about you by Google in the manner and for the purposes explained above.

How long we retain your data

If you leave a comment or fill out a contact form, any information you provide, 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.

Where we send your data

Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.
