What data I collect and why I collect it
My blog and all the advice is all available for free. There are no banner ads and sponsored posts. I don’t try and sell you anything. I don’t even collect your email address and have reduced the amount of tracking and external scripts to the minimum.
Google Analytics tracking is activated on all the pages
I use Google Analytics data to learn more about where you discovered my content, which of my articles you visited and which of them you enjoyed the most. This helps me create a better blog overall.
I have turned off all the advanced tracking that Google Analytics offers and have anonymized your IP address as well.
Please refer to the appropriate Google Analytics documentation for the specific type of data it collects.
If you visit a page with embedded content from other websites
Articles on this blog may include embedded content (YouTube videos, audio podcasts, embedded tweets and such). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if you visited the other website.
If you use the contact form
The actual submission data is stored in the database of this blog and is emailed directly to me. This email will include the submitter’s IP address, timestamp, name, email address, and message.
If you try to log in to my private admin area
In order to check login activity and potentially block fraudulent attempts, the following information is used for users who try to log into my admin area:
- attempting user’s IP address,
- attempting user’s email address/username (i.e. according to the value they were attempting to use during the login process),
- and all IP-related HTTP headers attached to the attempting user.
