Our website uses cookies and this page explains more about cookies, why we use cookies, how we use cookies, for what purpose and how to control cookies.

About cookies

Cookies consist of pieces of text, often including unique identifiers (strings of letters and numbers) that are sent by web servers to web browsers, and stored by the browser. The identifier may then be sent back to the server each time the browser requests a page from the server. This enables the web server to identify and track users as they navigate different pages on a website and to identify users who are returning.

Cookies may be either “persistent” or “session” cookies. Persistent cookies consist of a text file sent to the web browser from the web server, and are stored by the web browser until its set expiry date or until the user deletes the cookie. A session cookie, will expire when the user closes the web browser and is not retained after the browser is closed.

We use the Facebook Pixel to build advertising audiences based on behaviours such as visits to our website.

Who we share your data with

Origamina will not give, sell, rent, or loan any identifiable personal information to any third party, without a visitor’s prior consent. Origamina may disclose such information to respond to subpoenas, court orders, or legal process, or to establish or exercise its legal rights or defend against legal claims.

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.
