Privacy Policy

Who we are

Our website address is: We are (currently) a one-man blogging website, mostly about technology. But because this template is generated by WordPress (which I find a lovely idea), I’ll stick with the use of “we” to get this privacy policy quickly into the ether.

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.

An anonymized string created from your email address (also called a hash) may be provided to the Gravatar service to see if you are using it. The Gravatar service privacy policy is available here: After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.


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.

Contact forms

If you contact us through a contact form, we store your information as necessary, but for a minimum of 1 month. After this month, if we responded to you, we delete the message you sent to us. And let our email client forget about your email address and additional information which can be provided together with your email address (for example, your mail provider can send your real name in the second message if we exchange emails).

If this 1 month is too long, just reach out to us and we’ll delete your information.


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.

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.

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


The website is a blog, so we use analytics to determine how you got to the website, which pages you visited and so on. We don’t store more personal data than your country you visited us from — but we cannot relate this information to who you are physically. So no worries, our analytics don’t use any more information.

Who we share your data with

Actually, with nobody. If WordPress does nasty tricks in the background, we’re not aware of and therefore cannot do anything to stop them.

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 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.

Your contact information

If you share it with us, we will keep your information stored as long as it is necessary, but a minimum of 1 month. After this one month, we delete your contact information — which means, we delete your email.

If you happen to comment on our website, this data is retained as long as this website operates using WordPress or you delete your comment. If we migrate to another website, we will remove your comments on any posts because you may not be able to delete them — and we want to keep your privacy in your hands.

Additional information

How we protect your data

We don’t store personal information. This is the most effective protection. Besides this, we use strong passwords and anomality monitoring on the servers where WordPress is running.

What data breach procedures we have in place

If we find a data breach and we confirm that real (physical) personal data was stolen (or just it looks like it was stolen), we get worried where this data comes from and we will notify the authorities required.

What third parties we receive data from

Search engines mostly: they tell us what you’ve been searching which resulted in visiting our page. If you come regularly over a direct link or by typing our website’s address into your browser, we don’t get any data.

What automated decision making and/or profiling we do with user data

Nothing. We do not profile your user data and do no automatic decisions based on this. If you happen to see advertisements on our website, the content is customized by those providers based on their algorithms.
