What personal data we collect and why we collect it

When you sign up to join our Urban Upscale email list, we collect your email address and we may ask for additional demographic data such as zip code or age range. We ask for this information so we can continually enhance the content we develop, ensuring it fits our audience’s needs and interests.


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 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.

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.


Urban Upscale utilizes Google Analytics to measure site traffic and make ongoing updates to our website. This platform utilizes cookies to track visitor data. To learn more about this functionality and what it means for your data privacy, view Google Analytics privacy policy by clicking this link:

Who we share your data with

We do not share or sell your data with any other companies. We may use third-party vendors to enhance web content or send emails, and data from our email list may be shared within our Urban Upscale accounts on those vendor platforms.

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 left comments on our website, 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.

What data breach procedures we have in place

If Urban Upscale experiences a data breach we will notify those on our email list. Fortunately, because do not ask for detailed personal information, potential exposure due to a data breach is likely minimal.
