Who We Are

Our digital haven for beauty aficionados, Sheer Shimmer, can be accessed at https://sheershimmer.com.


Whenever visitors drop comments on Sheer Shimmer, we collect the data presented in the comments form. This includes the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string, which aids us in spam detection.

For those using Gravatar, an anonymized string derived from your email (termed a hash) might be sent to the Gravatar service to see if you’re registered. You can check Gravatar’s privacy policy here: https://automattic.com/privacy/. Once your comment gets our nod of approval, your profile picture will be public, appearing alongside your comment.


Planning to upload images to Sheer Shimmer? Remember to steer clear of images that carry embedded location data (EXIF GPS) as website visitors can download these images and extract their location details.


Drop a comment, and you’ll have the choice to save your name, email, and website in cookies, ensuring you don’t re-enter details with every new comment. Such cookies have a lifespan of one year.

Drop by our login page, and a transient cookie will assess if your browser is cookie-friendly. This cookie, devoid of personal data, vanishes once you shut your browser.

Logging in sets up multiple cookies that remember your login info and screen display choices. While login cookies have a two-day life, screen option cookies stick around for a year. Opt for “Remember Me”, and your login persists for a fortnight. However, logging out deletes these cookies.

Editing or publishing an article? That action saves an extra cookie in your browser, indicating the edited article’s post ID and expiring in a day.

Embedded Content from Other Websites

Our articles might feature embedded content (like videos, images, articles). Such content from other sites behaves just like you’ve directly visited the other site. Consequently, these sites may gather data about you, use cookies, embed third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with the embedded content, especially if you’re logged into that site.

Data Sharing

Should you opt for a password reset, the reset email will carry your IP address.

Data Retention

Leave a comment, and it stays with us indefinitely, along with its metadata. This helps us auto-approve any follow-up comments rather than queuing them.

For registered users, we store the personal details they offer in their profile. All users have the power to view, modify, or erase their details whenever they wish (username modifications, though, are off the table). Our website administrators also possess the ability to view and change this information.

Your Data Rights

Hold an account with us or have commented before? You can ask for an export of your personal data with us, and even request its deletion. This excludes data we’re bound to retain due to administrative, legal, or security reasons.

Where We Send Your Data

Automated spam detection services might scrutinize visitor comments.
