Who we are
Our mission is to provide tourists with information on rest areas located along interstates and highways in the United States. Our website address is: https://iamforeverlost.com.
When users submit comments on our site, we gather the information that is shown in the comments form, as well as the visitor’s IP address and the browser user agent string. This information is collected in order to assist with spam identification.
You should avoid posting photographs to the website that have embedded location data (also known as EXIF GPS) if you plan on uploading images to the website. Downloading and extracting any location data from the photographs hosted on the website is an option for visitors to the website.
You will be given the option to have your name, email address, and website saved in cookies if you choose to post a comment on our site. These are provided for your convenience so that you do not need to re-enter your information whenever you leave a new remark on the site. These cookies have a shelf life of one whole year.
If you visit the page where you log in to our site, we will place a temporary cookie on your browser in order to determine whether or not it supports cookies. When you exit your browser, this cookie, which does not contain any personally identifiable information, is deleted.
When you log in, we will also set up many cookies to preserve the information you entered at login as well as the screen display options you select. Cookies used for logging in remain valid for two days, but cookies used to customize the interface remain valid for an entire year. If you check the box labeled “Remember Me,” your login information will be stored for a further two weeks. If you exit your account without logging out first, the login cookies will be deleted.
When you make changes to an article or publish it, another cookie will be created and stored in your browser. This cookie does not include any personally identifiable information; all it does is indicate the post ID of the article you have most recently updated. After a day, it will no longer be valid.
Embedded content from other websites
There may be embedded content in some of the articles found on this website. When a visitor views content that has been embedded from another website, the experience is exactly the same as if they had visited the original website themselves.
Who we share your data with
If you ask for your password to be reset, your IP address will be included in the email that is sent to you to reset your password.
How long we retain your data
If you post a comment, both the comment and the metadata associated with it will be stored permanently. This is done so that any follow-up comments can be recognized and approved automatically, rather than having to wait in a moderation queue for them to be reviewed.
Assuming a user chooses to register on our website (if there are any users who choose to register), we will additionally keep any personally identifying information that they supply in their user profile. Every user has the ability to see, make changes to, or remove their own personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Administrators of the website are able to view and change that information as well.
What rights you have over your data
You have the ability to request to acquire an exported file of the personal data we possess on you, which includes any data you have submitted to us, if you have an account on this website or have left comments on articles that we have posted. You also have the option to request that we delete any personal information that we have stored about you. This does not include any data that we are required to store for administrative, legal, or security concerns. Those are the only types of data that are not included.
Where we send your data
An automatic spam detection service is used in order to check the comments left by site visitors.
