Privacy Policy + Cookies

This section explains how I collect information about your visits and your activities on my website.

1. Types of Data Collected

Currently, this website is collecting what I call a “minimum amount of visitor data in the era of GDPR” – you will see that I do not have plugins that allow you to quickly reshare articles on social media and also did not install a commenting system for my blog. No Facebook pixel either.

2. Data Collection Tools & Use

Cookies

My website use cookies. These are small (text or image) files that are downloaded from your visits to my site onto your computer and stored locally. They allow my website and external service providers to store your activities and the number of your visits to my site. My website uses the following cookies:

Analytics

The one and only data collecting tool used on this website is Google Analytics. This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google Inc. ( “Google”). Google Analytics uses “Cookies”, text files that are stored on your computer, to help analyze how users use the website. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website is usually transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there. In case of activation of the IP anonymization on this website, your IP address from Google will be within the member states of the European Union or other parties to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a server owned by Google in the USA and shortened there. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website, compiling reports on website activity and providing other with website and internet related services to the website operator. The transmitted by your browser as part of Google Analytics IP address will not be merged with other data from Google

Data collected via my Google Analytics account is used by me to:

  • analyse visitor statistics,
  • improve my backlink profile and content on the blog, and
  • to compile reports on the generic characteristics of my website’s visitors to fuel my own marketing strategy.
