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.
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.
When visitors use the contact forms to send their messages, we collect the data shown in the contact forms, and also 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 save 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 edit or publish an article, either in the role of contributor or editor, 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.
Our website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service of Google, Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043 USA, www.google.com (“Google Analytics” or “Google”). Google Analytics employs cookies that are stored on your computer in order to facilitate an analysis of your use of the site. These cookies may generate the following information:
- Visitor’s geographic location (for ex.: United States)
- IP address/Internet Service Provider
- Web browser
- Operating system
- Time spent on the site
- Number of visits
- Exit links and so on…
The information is transmitted to Google’s location in the US and stored there.
In using Google Analytics, we use the extension “anonymizeIp”. In doing so, Google abbreviates and thereby anonymizes your IP address before transferring it from EU/EEA member states. Google uses this information to analyze your use of our site, to compile reports for us on internet activity and to provide other services relating to our website.
Who do we share your data with?
We do not sell, trade, or otherwise transfer any personally identifiable information to outside parties. This does not include trusted third parties who assist me in operating my website, so long as those parties agree to keep this information confidential.
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 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 must keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.
How do we protect your data?
We protect your data in the following ways:
- We use an SSL (Secure Socket Layer) encryption.
- We use anonymize_ip extension to automatically anonymize / mask the IP address of every visitor before sending it to Google Analytics
What third parties we receive data from
Google’s use of advertising cookies enables it and its partners to serve ads to the users based on their visit to this website and/or other sites on the Internet.
By using this website, you agree to abide by these privacy policies.
