Who I am
What personal data I collect and why I collect it
When you leave a comment on the site the data shown in the comments form (name and e-mailaddress) is collected, as well as the visitor’s 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 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 two weeks. 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.
This website may contain links to other websites. I have no control over these websites and cannot assume responsibility for their data processing practices. Please refer to their individual privacy policies for more information.
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.
I use Google Analytics, which automatically collects information such as your IP address, the pages you viewed and other actions you take when using my website, as well as the dates/times when you accessed the website. This helps me analyse content performance. In order to protect your privacy I have set Google Analytics to anonymise your IP address, and your data will not be passed on to other Google services.
Information regarding minors
I do not knowingly collect data from users under the age of 16 without the permission of a parent or guardian. However, it is impossible for me to check whether my visitors are under the age of 16. Should you believe that I have collected personal data from a user under the age of 16 without permission, please contact me at email@example.com.
Who we share your data with
We currently use the following third-party service providers:
- Google Analytics by MonsterInsights – this helps me track my website’s usage and provides me with information on user actions.
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.
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.
