Who we are
Our website address is: https://rivermagazine.ca.
What personal data we collect and 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 or other submissions to the website for the magazine, your work will be kept for review for the next issue. If you have granted permission for us to post your work to the site, we may add that work, with a credit to you. If you have the means, 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. If you wish for people to not be able to access this information, you can use a service such as verexif.com: https://www.verexif.com/en/
We will be setting up a contact form for your questions and comments. When that happens, the contact form will collect your name and email address so that we can get in touch with you to respond. We will not retain that information longer than is necessary for communication. We will never give, trade, sell or otherwise share your information with any other person or organization other than those required by law.
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.
If you edit or publish an article, an additional cookie will be saved in your browser. This cookie includes no personal data and simply indicates the post ID of the article you just edited. It expires after 1 day.

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.
