This is the privacy and cookies policy for my website. The website is run by me, Krisztina Csiki, and the purpose of it is to share my musings and promote my works. In summary, I respect your privacy but do the same things that most other websites do to store information about your visit in order to make the running of the website possible.
What personal data we collect and why we collect it
When visitors leave comments on the site it collects the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.
If you upload images to the website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the website.
If you leave a comment on our site you may opt-in to saving your name, email address and website in cookies. These are for 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.
If you visit the login page, it 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, the website 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.
Who we share your data with
If you sign up for the newsletter, this site will record your email address and name. You can refuse to supply personal information, but that will exclude you from certain related activities such as receiving newsletters and free offers. When subscribers click on a link in one of my emails or fill out a form, the site may record this information.
Newsletter subscribers may unsubscribe at any time. You may ask for all your data to be deleted at any time.
How long we retain your data
If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.
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.
What rights you have over your data
If you have an account on this site, or have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.
Where we send your data
The website is located in the EU. Visitor activity may be checked through an automated spam detection service. Third-party services that are used may keep the collected data on servers anywhere in the world.
How we protect your data
To protect your personal information, this website takes reasonable precautions and follows industry best practices to make sure it is not inappropriately lost, misused, accessed, disclosed, altered or destroyed.
Changes to this privacy and cookies policy
I may update this privacy and cookies policy at any time, so please review it frequently. Changes and clarifications will take effect immediately upon their posting on the website.
