Privacy Policy

European law requires me to put a Privacy Policy on my website. Luckily, WordPress (what I use to power this site) is so nice that it already has one ready. Below follows the standard WordPress Privacy Policy with some minor changes.

What personal data we collect and why we collect it

□ Interactions with me personally

I will have to keep interactions about commissions (emails or messages you send me discussing commissions and payment) for my administration. I will have to keep these emails and messages for 7 years until I delete them. No one but me will get to see them. The only exception to this is if the Dutch tax authorities need a deeper insight into my tax reports, and want to check these interactions. That is when I will have to let them read the emails and messages discussing the payment of commissions.

□ Comments

Only for users logged into Disqus

The comments on this website are managed by Disqus. If you are not logged into a Disqus account, this won’t affect you, but if you are, their own privacy policy can be found here.

□ Cookies

Only for users logged into WordPress

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.

When you log in, we will also set up several cookies to save your login information and your screen display choices. Login cookies last for two days, and screen options cookies last for a year. If you select “Remember Me”, your login will persist for two weeks. If you log out of your account, the login cookies will be removed.

If you edit or publish an article, an additional cookie will be saved in your browser. This cookie includes no personal data and simply indicates the post ID of the article you just edited. It expires after 1 day.

□ 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.

This is the case for the following websites:

Google Analytics

If you click on any of the social media buttons, this will redirect you to that social media site, and they might also collect data about you.

How long we retain your data

Only for users logged into WordPress

For users that register on our website (if any), we 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.
