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: https://automattic.com/privacy/. After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.

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.

Analytics

We use Google Analytics to record information about the pages a user has seen (e.g. URL of the page, time of day, a device used, etc.). The information we collect is anonymized and sent to Google Analytics for analysis.

Google Analytics essentially uses first-party cookies to report visitor interactions on this website. Users can disable cookies or delete any cookies.

Google Analytics also collects Internet Protocol (IP) addresses to provide and protect the security of the service and to give website owners a sense of which country, state, or city in the world their users come from (also known as “IP geolocation”).

Advertising and Affiliate Links

Advertisements appearing on our site can be delivered to Users by advertising partners “Google Ads”, that can set cookies which we do not have authority on, nor are responsible for. Using their products or browsing advertised websites is directed to their own privacy policies and terms of service, and we are not responsible for the convenient delivery or quality of the product or service offered by them.

Using affiliate links in no way affects our editorial decision-making. By ‘affiliate links,’ we mean the links used in the product description and below the product photo on our website. The affiliate links will send you to the pages where these products can be purchased from. 

We only recommend products that we can buy ourselves and that really inspires us. As you click through our site to the product retailer and buy there something, we may earn a commission, at no extra cost to you. 

Third-party advertisements may also use cookies to collect information about our users over which we have no control. If you have any questions regarding an ad, please contact the advertiser directly.
