Privacy Policy

This website (referred to as “the Website” in the rest of this document) is located at https://www.katrikr.net. You can reach us by email at contact [at] katrikr [dot] net.

This document, known as a Privacy Policy, will explain what kind of data about you is collected when you visit the Website, leave comments on the Website, or submit information via any of the contact forms available on the Website.

Personally identifying data

Personally identifying information that may be collected from you includes but is not limited to your name, email address, and the IP address of your computer. Other personal data that cannot be used to personally identify you and is used simply for analytical purposes includes traffic data (whence you came, what you looked at, your browser information, et cetera).

You are required to submit your name and email address when using the comment form and when using any of the contact forms available on the Website. When you leave a comment on the Website, the data shown in the comments form is collected in addition to your IP address and a browser user agent string to help spam detection.

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.

If you upload images to the Website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Other visitors to the Website can download and extract any location data from images on the Website.

Cookies

The Website uses cookies for analytical purposes and for your convenience.

If you leave a comment on the Website, you may opt in to saving your name, email address and website in cookies. These are for the your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for one year.

The Website uses Google Analytics, a service which transmits website traffic data to Google servers in the United States and allows analysing trends to improve user experience on the Site. Google’s Privacy Policy is available here: https://policies.google.com/privacy.

The Visitory may opt out of this type of tracking by using the “Do Not Track” setting in their browser.

Embedded content from other websites

Articles on the Website may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if you have visited the 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.

How your data is handled

Your data will not be sold to any third parties. Your data will not be shared with any third parties without your explicit permission unless it is legally required of us.

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.

Likewise, if you submit a message using any of the contact forms provided, the message and its metadata are retained indefinitely.

Visitor comments and form submissions will be checked through an automated spam detection service. The Akismet service Privacy Policy is available here: https://automattic.com/privacy/.
