We value your privacy as much as our own. This page explains how we treat personal data collected through this website.
What personal data we collect and why we collect it
We collect the information that you enter in the contact form on this website, along with metadata about the form submission, such as time stamp, origin IP address, and user agent (browser). We use this data for communication purposes, i.e. replying to your messages, but we do not use it for marketing purposes.
You can accept or decline cookies by modifying the settings of your browser. If you choose to decline cookies, some functionality on our website may not work for you.
We use Mailchimp for our newsletter. Mailchimp collects data such as email address, IP address, date, and time associated with your interaction to send the newsletter, and to analyze how you interact with it.
You can unsubscribe from our newsletter at any time via the unsubscribe link in every email.
Embedded content from other websites
Pages on this website 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.
We use Jetpack for simple, anonymous statistics. Jetpack collects data such as IP address, WordPress.com user ID (if logged in), WordPress.com username (if logged in), user agent (browser), visiting URL, referring URL, timestamp of event, browser language, and country code.
Important: We do not have access to any piece of data explicitly identifying a specific user (IP address, WordPress.com ID, WordPress.com username, etc.). For example, we can see that a specific page has 100 views, but we can not see which specific users or accounts viewed that page.
We use Meta for Facebook ad-driven visitor activity tracking and analytics. Meta collects data such as HTTP headers, pixel-specific data, button-click data, optional values, and form field names.
Who we share your data with
Generally, we do not share your personal data with anyone. Although, we use third party services, namely Cloudflare, Jetpack, Akismet, Mailchimp, Meta and PayPal, that may collect or receive data about you.
How long we retain your data
If you send a message through our contact form, the message and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognise and facilitate communication (e.g. when providing support), instead of starting all over again.
If you subscribe to our newsletter, your data is retained indefinitely. This is so we can send and optimize the newsletter.
We will erase your data anytime we have concerns about your privacy.
Analytics data, i.e. statistics logs – containing visitor IP addresses and WordPress.com usernames (if available) – are retained by Automattic for 28 days and are used for the sole purpose of powering WordPress.com Stats.
Data collected by Meta is retained for as long as they need it to provide their products, comply with legal obligations or to protect their or other’s interests. They decide how long they need the data on a case-by-case basis.
What rights you have over your data
If you have sent messages through our contact form and/or subscribed to our newsletter, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you. 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 your data is sent
The information that you enter in the contact form on this website is send to us as an email message, and is stored in the database on our hosting server. Our hosting provider is Namecheap.
Your form submission may be checked through an automated spam detection service by Akismet.
Other third party services that we use, such as Cloudflare, Jetpack, Mailchimp, Meta and PayPal, may pass information, including personal data, to external servers.
