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.

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 can download and extract any location data from images on the website.

Circle Thrift & Art Space ain’t no snitch.

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.

How we protect your data

We don’t. We HIGHLY encourage you to follow the advice of digital security experts and professionals. We don’t see your data, have access to it, or even have a reason to want it. Be safe online, the internet fad is almost over.

What data breach procedures we have in place

We have some sage we can burn and we know a couple people who circuit bend for power electronic shows. If that doesn’t sound reassuring, that’s because it isn’t. Don’t put any unnecessary data online.

What third parties we receive data from

We aren’t allowed to tell you about them until you finish Rush Week.

What automated decision making and/or profiling we do with user data

We automatically rate all profiles as 10 out of 10 unless you’re an asshole, Nazi, or just intolerant and bigoted online. Then you get a -10 out of 10. Bet that stings.

Industry regulatory disclosure requirements

It will take a Congressional Summons before we will disclose anything! LIVE FREE OR DIE!

But we are a thrift store and an art gallery. We’re not a bank, a government building, or some high end boutique. People drop stuff off they don’t want and we sell it to keep it out of the junk yard. Others display and sell their art through us. Pretty simple.
