The type of data that we collect and process may include your name, username, email address, IP address, and URL. We use data to run our site efficiently and to personalise the individual user experience.
We process data of brands, companies, organisations on this blog which may have been provided to us by a third party (eg, PR companies or other blogger outreach services). We need to process brand names and links of these companies, organisations, etc which may sometimes include names of people within that brand, company or organisation, (eg, if the brand is named after a living person) in order to carry out work assigned to us by these companies.
I use Google Adsense. Information is collected as a result, which may be used and stored. Third parties such as Google may serve content and advertisements, collect information directly from visitors, and place or recognise cookies on visitors’ browsers in order to give you the best user experience possible. Ads may be based on your prior visits to my blog as well as other blogs and sites on the internet ( known as the DoubleClick). You can find out more about cookies here if needed. You may also opt out of the use of DoubleClick cookies for internet-based advertising by visiting the Ad Settings page from Google. You can also turn off cookies at any time by modifying your browser’s settings, and this is done yourself.
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.
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.
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.
My site may contain links to other websites of interest. However, once you have used these links to leave my site, you should note that I do not have any control over that other website. Therefore, I cannot be responsible for the protection and privacy of any information which you provide whilst visiting such sites and such sites are not governed by this privacy statement. You should exercise caution and look at the privacy statement applicable to the website in question.
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.
Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.
