GDPR

What personal data I collect and why I collect it

In the end it all comes down to this:

Comments

When visitors leave comments on my site I obviously collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the poster’s IP address.

Gravatar avatar support is disabled.

Cookies

If you get the munchies…

You will encounter up to 4 cookies on my site, none of them are for any tracking or identification purposes.

_wpss_p_, _wpss_h_ = WP-SpamShield cookies -> Cookies will expire after 1 hour.
JCS_INENREF, JCS_INENTIM = Technical anti-spam cookies -> Cookies will expire after 1 hour.

All of those cookies are first party cookies and are not loaded or connected to a secondary server or URL.

Embedded content from other websites

I am trying to keep embedded content as local as possible, social media access is provided via a 2-step activation method to avoid user-tracking. There are no Google analytics or other trackers running on my site. In the future YouTube links will be handled by a lazy-loading mechanism to prevent user tracking, currently all YouTube embedded videos on my site have been converted to clickable links.

Who I share your data with

Nobody.

How long I retain your data

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so I can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.

What rights you have over your data

If you have left comments, you can request to receive a file of the personal data I hold about you, including any data you have provided to me. You can also request that I erase any personal data I hold about you. This does not include any data I am obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.

If you have additional questions or want to remove your comment / data, just contact me with your comments associated email address at:

Enjoy your stay.
