Privacy policy

What personal information we collect and why we collect it

Reactions

When visitors leave comments on the site, we collect the data shown in the response form and also the IP address of the visitor and the browser user agent string to help detect spam.

An anonymous string, made on the basis of your email address (this is also called a hash) can be sent to the Gravatar service if you use one. The privacy policy page can be found here: https://automattic.com/privacy/. After your comment is approved, your profile photo will be publicly visible in the context of your response.

Cookies

When you leave a comment on our site, your name, e-mail address and website will be stored in a cookie. We do this for your convenience so that you do not need to re-enter this information for a new response. These cookies are valid for one year.

When you change or publish a message, an additional cookie is saved by your browser. This cookie does not contain any personal data and only contains the post ID of the article that you have edited. This cookie expires after a day.

Embedded content from other websites

Messages on this site can show embedded content. For example, videos, images, messages. Embedded content from other websites behaves exactly the same as if the visitor had visited this other website.

These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed third party tracking and monitor your interaction with this embedded content, including the interaction with embedded content if you have an account and are logged into that website.

Analytics

I use cookies through Google Analytics to see how many people visited the website and what they were looking for, which pages are viewed most. I can not check who you are or where you live, nor do I need to.

With whom we share your data

Advertisements are placed on this website. Without that small income the website would have no possibilities to exist.

These ads are aimed at your interest if you have indicated that you do not object to them. Or they are random if you have objected to targeted advertisements. Google therefore receives the cookies necessary for placing advertisements. At least I think it works like this.

I hope you do not turn on an adblocker, the ads would no longer be visible.

How long we save your data

When you leave a comment, that reaction and the metadata of that reaction are kept forever. This way we can automatically recognize and approve follow-up reactions without having to moderate them.

What rights you have about your data

If you have left comments, you can request to delete the response. We will do so.

Where we send your data to

Responses from visitors are guided through an automated spam detection service.

Your contact information

This is only known to me, I do not do anything with it.

Which data breach procedures we have implemented

The website is secured with an SSL certificate and is protected against hacking (I hope). I would not know which data leaks are possible.

From which third parties do we receive data

We do not receive any further data. Or it might be that Google’s ad placements fall under this category. Something too technical for many small websites …

What kind of automated decisions do we take and what sort of profiling do we do with user data

We do not do anything with it. This site wants to give, not to get information.

Disclosure obligations of the industry

Huh???

To be honest, I agree that we have to treat each other’s privacy carefully, but this law seems to be just as bad as the mandatory cookie notifications that you have to click away on each visit on every website. The amount of mail that I have already received about this law … Unbelievable. There is also a lot of uncertainty and unrest on the forums of site builders.

Anyway, I am doing my best, and hence my privacy policy. I Am curious, does anyone ever read this? Let me know just for fun?
