What personal data I collect and why I collect it
The data that is collected is the URL and title of the page the user is viewing. The browser the user is using, the size of the browser window and the screen resolution. Besides that whether Java and Flash are used. Also, the location and language of the person will be collected. All of this is collected so I can create a better website. So I know what articles you guys enjoy, and which ones you don’t. And what size of photos will be better to use in articles so you guys can get the full experience.
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 my site you may opt-in to save 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.
Embedded content from other websites
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.
Google Analytics is incredibly helpful for me. The data that is collected is the URL, title of the page the user is viewing and how long you will be viewing the page. This might sound very creepy, but it’s not that bad I promise. And it all has a good reason.
