Privacy & Cookies

This site uses cookies for statistics, and to make the comment area on blog posts work.
If you have chosen to fill out the subscription form, this site also collects your e-mail address to Mailchimp, in order to send you e-mail notifications using the Mailchimp service, when there are new blog posts.

Comment form

On this site I use the default WordPress comment form to enable discussion and connect with people who visit the site. The form collects name, e-mail address, site url (if you leave one), content you write, Gravatar photo (if you uploaded one to gravatar.com) and ip address. Only your name, url, comment and picture will be visible on the site. Your name, e-mail, comment and ip address will be saved in the database which is stored on a server in Dublin, Ireland, through a reliable web hosting company.

Your e-mail address will be used by WordPress to send notifications about replies to comments you have left on this site. If you don’t want this, simply uncheck the box “subscribe to comments” below the comment form before submitting the comment.

By using the comment form you accept these conditions. If you would change your mind and wish to be deleted from the database, let me know by contacting me.

Google Analytics

This site uses Google Analytics for statistics about visitors, and will collect anonymised information about you:

  • your location
  • what device, OS and web browser you use to visit the website
  • where you came from to visit the website (if you clicked a link on another website, social media for example)
  • what links on this website you click on
  • how long you stay on this website
  • if you are a new or returning visitor

…and similar things regarding your behaviour on this website. This information makes me see overall statistics about website visitors which helps me improve the website and its content.

If you do not want this information to be collected, find a floating button with a cog wheel near the bottom left on this site, click there and change your cookie settings. If you disable third party cookies, Google Analytics won’t load.

I will NEVER share your information with anyone and I don’t use services on this website that will track you elsewhere on the internet.

Mailchimp

This site uses the Mailchimp service to send e-mail notifications when there are new blog posts, if you have chosen to sign up for the e-mail list.
I will never use your e-mail for anything else than notifications. If you wish to unsubscribe from these e-mails, you can do so any time by using the unsubscribe link at the bottom of the e-mail.
