What Personal Data We Collect & 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.
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.
When you fill a contact form on our website, we will collect your information like email address, first name, last name, address, and phone number. We will be using this information for auto-fill contact forms for saving your time while filling the same information on another site or on our site for re-contacting our support team or shopping as a returning buyer on our site.
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 visit our login page, 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.

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 by using cookies or embed additional third-party tracking. They will monitor your interaction with the help of that embedded content. This will include tracking your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.
Who We Share Your Data With?
Your comments 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.
How Long We Retain Your Data?
We generally discard your information when no more need them for the purpose we collected them for. This is already described in the section above on |How And Why We Use Your Information”. Additionally, we disclose your information when we are not legally required to continue to keep them.
For example, we keep the web server logs to track information related to a visitor to our boxesstore.com site, including the visitor’s IP address, browser type, and operating system, for approximately 30 days. We retain similar logs for this period of time in order to analyze traffic to our site boxesstore.com and also investigate issues if something goes wrong on one of our websites.
