Privacy Policy

Who we are

We are the administrative arm of the nationwide minenga, groups of people who come together to build their local communities and deal with social and economic activities and rules.


When visitors leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s provided IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.


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 visit our login page, 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.

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.

Who we share your data with

If you request a password reset, your IP address will be included in the reset email. We don’t share any of your information with anyone unless we have your explicit permission. We only use your data to assist you with enrolment, logging in and other services we offer you and that you explicitly accept. We have no intention on using your data in any other way, unless we clearly ask for specific information to be used elsewhere – but this is always intended for good purposes and we will always do our best to ensure your data is private, secure and used for good.

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 we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information by contacting an administrator or webmaster (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 or security purposes.

Where your data is sent

Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.
