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 aid in detection of spam.

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: After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.


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


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.

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, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracking your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.


We may collect data for analytical purposes, including (but not limited to) through the use of 3rd party plugins such as Google Analytics. Such data is anonymized when possible and in situations where such anonymization does not conflict with the goal of analytics. Analytics data is not sold or shared with 3rd parties with the intent to produce profit.


Who we share your data with

We do not sell or share your data to third parties unless required by law. 


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.

The California Consumer Privacy Act requires companies to provide “Do Not Sell My Info” links on their websites and other digital domains.

ROI Technology Inc. does NOT sell information that identifies who you are to anyone, ever. You do not need to take any action to indicate that you would like us not to sell your information, because we never have, and never will.

If you’re a current client, know that all ROI Technology Inc. contracts include an NDA that specifically forbids us from sharing, selling, or even disclosing the fact that you are a current client to any 3rd party. This policy is designed to protect you, and us. You are of course welcome to share your relationship with ROI Technology Inc. to whomever you wish, however we will NEVER do so without your explicit permission.

Cookies we collect when you visit our site are not personally identifiable. They simply tell us when someone visits our site, how long they spend, and what they do, such as read a blog post, or download a free whitepaper. The only method we have for tracking who is on a given page is via the chat widget in the lower right, and only if you actually engage with the chat, fill out the form, and submit it.

If you’re a California resident, you can read about your rights under California law on the Office of the Attorney General’s CCPA landing page here:

If you’d like to opt out of digital marketing, or would like an export of any of your personally identifying information that may be in any of our databases, please email contact(at) with the subject “CCPA Data Removal Request” and the details you’d like removed from our database.
