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.

Contact forms

When you request information from us, we ask you to fill out a form that requests some basic information about your interest in Villagio of Bradford Village and how we may contact you.  We also ask Virtual Resident applicants to identify a relative or friend who is a resident or staff member at Villagio of Bradford Village.  We will contact that individual to verify that they support your membership.


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 10 years. 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 track the number of visitors to certain parts of our site, in order to know what features our members find most useful.  We do not track individuals’ visits to specific pages, other than those who submit forms on the site.

Who we share your data with

We do not share your data with anyone except Villagio of Bradford Village and Villagio Senior Living management staff.

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.

Except for comments you have posted and media files you have uploaded, all of your information will be deleted within thirty (30) days of your membership being terminated.  Your membership is terminated as follows: 

  • Virtual Residents – upon request or after two years of inactivity
  • Residents – upon ceasing to reside at Villagio of Bradford Village Independent Living 
  • Management Team – when no longer employed by Villagio of Bradford Village / Villagio Senior Living 

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.

Your contact information

Your information is used solely to process your membership or request for information.   If you are a member of My Bradford Village, we will also use this information in the production of our Resident Directory and Management Team Directory.  If you submit a form on the site, we will use your information to pre-fill some of the form fields for you.

By policy of My Bradford Village, this information will never be sold, given, rented or traded to others.

Additional information

How we protect your data

We take steps to harden the files that make up the Web site from malicious access.  Your password is encrypted before it is stored; therefore we do not have the ability to view it.  If you forget your password we can help you set a new password, but we cannot look up your forgotten password.  All files and information on the site are ID and password protected.  Our Web security is reviewed regularly, and includes the automatic lock-out of suspected malicious activity.

What data breach procedures we have in place

We proactively monitor the site to look for malicious activity.  If we detect that unauthorized access to member data has occurred, we will notify all users of the site and terminate all active user sessions, requiring users to reset their passwords before they can log in again.  We will also analyze the breach in order to further refine our security settings.
