Privacy Policy

Who I am

This website is a personal blog whose address is: http://sharingmyreflections.com.

I do not sell or advertise anything on this website and I do not use the data and information you provide for marketing purposes.

What personal data I collect

Personal data is created by your interactions with this website and also it is generated from technical processes such as comments, contact forms, cookies, analytics, and third-party plug-ins.

When you leave a comment on this website, the data shown in the comments form [which are your (nick)name, e-mail and website, if you choose to share it] as well as your IP address are saved along with the comment.

Comments and their metadata are retained indefinitely, or rather as long as the website exists. This is so I can recognise and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue. Also, I appreciate your thoughtful and supportive comments and like to keep them as part of this website.

When you send a message via the contact form, I get to know the name and e-mail you provide. I do not keep any of them unless I need them for our correspondence. In such a case I may keep the data for future use, as long as necessary.

Cookies

If you leave a comment on this web 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.

Cookies are also used to get statistics of this website.

If your browser allows using cookies, I assume that you agree to their usage. If it is not so, you can change the settings in your browser.

Third parties

I don’t provide your data to anybody on purpose, yet some of the data (such as IP addresses and browser user agent strings) may be used by the plug-ins this website employs to ensure safe and proper operation of the website and to avoid spam.

To avoid the obvious spam, visitor comments are checked through an automated spam detection service, see its privacy policy.

To ensure safety of this website, access is guarded by a security plug-in, see its privacy policy.

To follow statistics of this website, Google Analytics service is used, see its data privacy and security policy.

The web hosting used for this website is certified to ISO 27001: Information Security Management System (ISMS).

How I protect your data

Both the website and admin account are safeguarded against misuse. I use a strong password, security plug-in, certified web hosting and security measures the hosting offers (such as FTP account locking).

What rights you have over your data

If you have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data I hold about you. You can also request that I erase any personal data I hold about you. Contact me in case of any doubts.
