Like any other website, Nicholas Ravanelli uses ‘cookies’. These cookies are used to store information including visitors’ preferences, and the pages on the website that the visitor accessed or visited. This information is used to optimize the users’ experience by customizing the web page content based on visitors’ browser type and/or other information.
Specific cookies used
- hutas_csrf_token: This token is used to control the user interaction with the Human Thermal Audit Simulation Application to mitigate malicious use. It is a unique (e.g. per user) string of alphanumeric code which authorizes the users access to submit, collect information.
- hutas_strava_token: This cookie is used to store authorization tokens to interact with the STRAVA API service. This cookie stores alpha-numeric tokens, and the authorized athlete id. The user can delete/remove their STRAVA authorization for use with Human Thermal Audit Simulation Application at any time by clicking the “remove authorization” button presented or by locally deleting stored cookies from their browser. All private information (e.g. weight) that is not publicly available on the STRAVA website is not immediately stored.
HuTAS Input Database
To ensure the best possible user experience, all input parameters supplied are stored alongside a unique alpha-number hex identification number to retrieve results at a later date. This code is provided to you as hyperlink; e.g. https://www.nicholasravanelli.ca/hutas?TA_ID=HUTAS123456789. The string following TA_ID is the index associated with your inputs. The method by which you obtain location or weather data is not logged. In other words, Nicholas Ravanelli cannot identify whether the information was manually or automatically obtained using the application supplied buttons. If you import an activity from STRAVA to conduct a heat balance calculation, the activity id will be stored to provide the ability to expand the user experience and results at a later date. However, ONLY the authorized user who initially imported this data will be able to see this information if revisited or requested.
Embedded content from other websites
Pages 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.
How long we retain this data
In order to serve the best possible experience with the Human Thermal Audit Simulation Application, all data stored in this database will be kept indefinitely. This is so we can re-calculate any results based on improvements within the application to ensure revisiting past thermal audit simulations are up-to-date.
What rights you have over this data
At any time, you can request to receive an exported file of any input data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes. As this information does not contain any a users personally identifiable information (e.g. name, email, civic address), we may require additional information from you to accurately identify the data associated to your inputs (e.g. the TA_ID or hyperlink to the Thermal Audit Results).
