What personal data I collect and why I collect them


When visitors leave comments, the site collects the information displayed in the comment form and the visitor’s IP address, and a user agent string is used to identify and prohibit junk comments. This data is collected to give you the opportunity to leave comments on the content and avoid spambots taking over the comment fields!

An anonymous string created from your email address (also called the hash value) may be sent to the Gravatar service to determine if you are registered there. The Gravatar service privacy policy is available at https://automattic.com/privacy/. If your comment is approved, and if Gravatar has an image connected to your email address, your comment will display this image publicly next to your comment.


If you leave a comment on the site, you can choose to save your name, e-mail address and website address in cookie files. This choice is there for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in this information again the next time you write a comment. These cookie files are valid for a year.

Embedded content from other sites

Articles on this site may contain embedded content (such as video clips, images, articles, etcetera). Embedded content from other sites behaves the same as if the visitor visited the other site directly.

These sites can collect information about you, use cookie files, embed additional third-party tracking and monitor your interaction with the embedded content, including tracking your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to the site in question.


I collect information through Google Analytics about how many people visit the site and some information about you as a reader, such as which country you live in, what kind of platform you use to read the blog and which pages you visit. This information is not linked to any specific person and therefore not considered personal data.

Whom I share your data with

I do not share personal information with anyone else.

How long I keep your data

If you comment, the site saves the comment and its metadata without time limit. The reason for this is that I need to be able to find and approve follow-up comments in a discussion automatically and not put them in a queue for review.

It’s also fun that comments are left on old posts because many continue to be active through Google searches and more. The comments often include tips or input that may be valuable to other readers!

What rights do you have over your data

If you have written any comments on this site, you can request an export file containing the personal information I have about you, including all the information you have given me. You can also request that I remove all the personal information I have about you. This request does not include any information that I have to save for administrative, legal or security purposes.

Where we send your information

The site might check comments from visitors via an automated spam detection service.

Your contact information

If you have questions or wish to request your information, send mail to hello@annaloverus.com
