What personal data I collect and why I collect it

On this website, a visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string are being collected in a bid to gather user analytics data, improve the user experience within the context of content marketing activities and fighting against spam and hacking attempts.

However, note that this website and analytics script provided by Google Analytics only collect this information anonymously.

There’s also a mailing list to collect visitor name and e-mail to only be able to contact regular visitors for the new content notifications, general updates and price deals that exist on affiliate websites. Note that, users may only be contacted if they have opted-in to share their contact information via the forms on this website hosted by MailChimp.com

Any user who has joined the mailing list is always free to unsubscribe any time within the links at the bottom of subscription emails.

How long we retain your data

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

For users that register on my website (if any), I also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.

What rights you have over your data

If you have an account on this site or have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to me. You can also request that I erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data I am obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.
