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

Keep in mind that we do use affiliate links like Amazon and FNAC (we will update this section in the future if we change our affiliations), so these sites might track information about your online behaviour.

Analytics

For analytics purposes we use:

  • Google Analytics
  • Monster Insights

These services let us know the number of viewers on our website, as well as the time spent on a certain page, the country, the referrer and which links were clicked. These are aggregated information, meaning that we cannot tell which person has clicked what, how much time has spent on which link and from where he comes. We only get the information of the number of viewers per country, the links and the number of of times they were consulted, etc.

Who we share your data with

Don’t worry, we don’t share your data with anyone.

How long we retain your data

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

If you send us an inquiry via direct e-mail or contact form, we will keep your e-mail content in our archives indefinitely.

If you subscribe to our Newsletter, we will keep your email on our lists until you change your subscription preferences.

What rights you have over your data

At any moment you can delete comments you left on our website. You can also request that we erase emails exchanged.

However, we reserve the right of keeping a list of recurring topics and may even add them in a FAQ section. This means that if you needed extra-information on a certain topic, we will use the answer we provided you with in future posts on our website and Social Media.

For e-mail subscription you may change your preferences whenever you’d like. To this end, we use MailChimp services that provides us with an automatic way of managing our e-mail lists.
