What rights you have over your data

This website’s administrators

Administrators can manage the content (text, documents, pictures) on the pages of this website. Only two people have administrative access to my website; my website designer and myself.

What rights you have over your data

In accordance with your privacy rights, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided. You can also request that we erase any personal data I hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes. To make a request, please contact me.

Analytics and cookies

I use Google Analytics, which is a web analytics service offered by Google, to tracks and analyse traffic to this website. This helps me offer a better user experience for you. Every device (router, desktop, tablet, smartphone etc) that is connected directly to the Internet is allocated an Internet address called an IP address. This IP address is considered to be PII (Personally Identifiable Information) because it identifies your location. By default, Google Analytics saves your IP address. To maintain your privacy, however, we have prevented your IP address from being stored by Google Analytics.

Cookies set by Google Analytics for general tracking:
_ga (expires + 2 years)
_gid (expires 1 day)

Session cookies: If you have an account and you log in to this site, we will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.

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 tracking your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.
