Privacy Policy

This privacy policy describes how I collect, protects and uses the personally identifiable information you may provide on the website and any of its articles. It also describes the choices available to you regarding our use of your Personal Information and how you can access and update this information. This Policy does not apply to the practices of companies that we do not own or control, or to individuals that we do not employ or manage.

Collection of Personal Information

I receive and store any information you knowingly provide to us when you fill any online forms on the Website. You can choose not to provide me with certain information, but then you may not be able to take advantage of some of the Website features. Users who are uncertain about what information is mandatory are welcome to contact me.

Collection of Non-Personal Information

When you visit the Website my system automatically record information that your browser sends. This data may include information such as your device’s IP address, browser type and version, operating system type and version, language preferences or the webpage you were visiting before you came to our Website, pages of my blog that you visit, the time spent on those pages, information you search for on my blog, access times and dates, and other statistics.

Use and Processing of Collected Information

Any of the information I collect from you may be used to personalize your experience; improve my blog; run and operate my blog and Services. Non-Personal Information collected is used only to identify potential cases of abuse and establish statistical information regarding blog usage. This statistical information is not otherwise aggregated in such a way that would identify any particular user of the system.

I may process Personal Information related to you if one of the following applies:

  • You have given their consent for one or more specific purposes. Note that under some legislation I may be allowed to process information until you object to such processing (by opting out), without having to rely on consent or any other of the following legal bases below. This, however, does not apply, whenever the processing of Personal Information is subject to European data protection law;
  • Provision of information is necessary for the performance of an agreement with you and/or for any pre-contractual obligations thereof;
  • Processing is necessary for compliance with a legal obligation to which you are subject;
  • Processing is related to a task that is carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority vested in us;
  • Processing is necessary for the purposes of the legitimate interests pursued by us or by a third party. In any case, I will be happy to clarify the specific legal basis that applies to the processing, and in particular whether the provision of Personal Data is a statutory or contractual requirement, or a requirement necessary to enter into a contract.

Information Transfer and Storage

Depending on your location, data transfers may involve transferring and storing your information in a country other than your own. You are entitled to learn about the legal basis of information transfers to a country outside the European Union or to any international organization governed by public international law or set up by two or more countries, such as the UN, and about the security measures taken by us to safeguard your information. If any such transfer takes place, you can find out more by checking the relevant sections of this document or inquire with me using the information provided in the contact section.

The Rights of Users

You may exercise certain rights regarding your information processed by me. In particular, you have the right to do the following:

  • You have the right to withdraw consent where you have previously given your consent to the processing of your information;
  • You have the right to object to the processing of your information if the processing is carried out on a legal basis other than consent;
  • You have the right to learn if the information is being processed by me, obtain disclosure regarding certain aspects of the processing and obtain a copy of the information undergoing processing;
  • You have the right to verify the accuracy of your information and ask for it to be updated or corrected;
  • You have the right, under certain circumstances, to restrict the processing of your information, in which case, we will not process your information for any purpose other than storing it;
  • You have the right, under certain circumstances, to obtain the erasure of your Personal Information from me.
  • You have the right to receive your information in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format and, if technically feasible, to have it transmitted to another controller without any hindrance. This provision is applicable provided that your information is processed by automated means and that the processing is based on your consent, on a contract which you are part of or on pre-contractual obligations thereof.

The Right to Object to the Processing

Where Personal Information is processed for the public interest, in the exercise of an official authority vested in my blog or for the purposes of the legitimate interests pursued by me, you may object to such processing by providing a ground related to your particular situation to justify the objection. You must know that, however, should your Personal Information be processed for direct marketing purposes, you can object to that processing at any time without providing any justification. To learn, whether we are processing Personal Information for direct marketing purposes, you may refer to the relevant sections of this document.

How to Exercise These Rights

Any requests to exercise User rights can be directed to the Owner through the contact details provided in this document. These requests can be exercised free of charge and will be addressed by the Owner as early as possible and always within one month.

Privacy of Children

I do not knowingly collect any Personal Information from children under the age of 13. If you are under the age of 13, please do not submit any Personal Information through my blog. I encourage parents and legal guardians to monitor their children’s Internet usage and to help enforce this Policy by instructing their children never to provide Personal Information through my blog without their permission. If you have reason to believe that a child under the age of 13 has provided Personal Information to me through my blog, please contact me. You must also be at least 16 years of age to consent to the processing of your personal data in your country (in some countries I may allow your parent or guardian to do so on your behalf).

Do Not Track Signals

Some browsers incorporate a Do Not Track feature that signals to websites you visit that you do not want to have your online activity tracked. Tracking is not the same as using or collecting information in connection with a website. For these purposes, tracking refers to collecting personally identifiable information from consumers who use or visit a website or online service as they move across different websites over time. My blog does not track its visitors over time and across third party websites. However, some third party sites may keep track of your browsing activities when they serve you content, which enables them to tailor what they present to you.


I may display online advertisements and I may share aggregated and non-identifying information about my visitors that I collect through online surveys and promotions with certain advertisers. I do not share personally identifiable information about individual customers with advertisers. In some instances, I may use this aggregated and non-identifying information to deliver tailored advertisements to the intended audience.

Links to Other Websites

My blog contains links to other websites that are not owned or controlled by me. Please be aware that I am not responsible for the privacy practices of such other websites or third-parties. I encourage you to be aware when you leave our Website and to read the privacy statements of each and every website that may collect Personal Information.

Information Security

I secure information you provide on computer servers in a controlled, secure environment, protected from unauthorized access, use, or disclosure. I maintain reasonable administrative, technical, and physical safeguards in an effort to protect against unauthorized access, use, modification, and disclosure of Personal Information in its control and custody. However, no data transmission over the Internet or wireless network can be guaranteed. Therefore, while I strive to protect your Personal Information, you acknowledge that

  • There are security and privacy limitations of the Internet which are beyond our control;
  • The security, integrity, and privacy of any and all information and data exchanged between you and our Website cannot be guaranteed;
  • Any such information and data may be viewed or tampered with in transit by a third-party, despite best efforts.

Data Breach

In the event I become aware that the security of the Website has been compromised or users Personal Information has been disclosed to unrelated third parties as a result of external activity, including, but not limited to, security attacks or fraud, I reserve the right to take reasonably appropriate measures, including, but not limited to, investigation and reporting, as well as notification to and cooperation with law enforcement authorities. In the event of a data breach, I will make reasonable efforts to notify affected individuals if I believe that there is a reasonable risk of harm to the user as a result of the breach or if notice is otherwise required by law. When I do, I will post a notice on the Website.

Legal Disclosure

I will disclose any information I collect, use or receive if required or permitted by law, such as to comply with a subpoena, or similar legal process, and when I believe in good faith that disclosure is necessary to protect my rights, protect your safety or the safety of others, investigate fraud, or respond to a government request.

Changes and amendments

I reserve the right to modify this Policy relating to the blog at any time, effective upon posting of an updated version of this Policy on the blog. When I do we will revise the updated date at the bottom of this page. Continued use of the blog after any such changes shall constitute your consent to such changes.
