Cookies, Privacy, GDRP and all that shit

Hi there

Cookies

My blog is WordPress based. WordPress uses cookies to track a logged in user. Since you probably do not log in, you will not be affected by WordPress cookies.

I do however like to see how many visitors I get so I use Google Analytics. GA uses cookies to see if you are a repeating or new visitor and so on. You can choose either “anonymised” or “regular” tracking. The difference is wether you allow Google Analytics to track your full IP address, or only a portion of it.

Also, I give the opportunity to share my posts on Facebook, Google+ and Twitter. These also use cookies. If you don’t want those cookies, then don’t use the social share buttons.

Privacy and GDPR

When leaving a comment you are essentially sending me your IP address, name and email address. If you don’t want me to store this data, then don’t send a comment, or use a fake name/address (but doing so makes it hard for me to reply). This is WordPress functionality and I will not alter it’s behaviour.

If you want to have your name and or email removed from my blogs database, send me a message with the form below:


Please fill out at least one of these fields truthfully for me to find your data by.
