Privacy Policy

What about your data?

My website address is: This blog is purely personal, which means the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) does not apply – however, I’ll be as transparant and forthcoming as materially possible regarding data on this site.

The main thing is: I’m not interested in getting and exploiting your data. There are no ads on this site and no revenues. Essentially this site is a public scrapbook.

The data ending up on this site have to do with comments and with services such as Jetpack which help gathering analytics about how many (or how few) people visit the site. I also embed media on this site, via those media you can get exposed to the sites these media originate from (mostly YouTube and the Mindmeister-mindmaps).


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.

An anonymized string created from your email address (also called a hash) may be provided to the Gravatar service to see if you are using it. The Gravatar service privacy policy is available here: After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.


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.


I detected DoubleClick, Google Tag Manager, Facebook Custom Audience and some site analytics on my site.

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.

These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracing your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.

How long this site retains your data

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so the site can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.

What rights you have over your data

If you have left comments, you can request to receive those data (unless I’ve erased the post or the comment). You can also request that I erase these data.

Where this site sends your data

Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.
