Who are we

What personal data do we collect and why we collect it
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.
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 use contact forms to get in touch with me, I would receive your email ID as well as any other information that you may choose to share. This data is stored indefinitely. Should you wish for me to delete your contact information at a later point in time, do reach out to me so that I can delete all such communication and contact details.
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.
Note you may be able to disable cookies in your web browser preferences.
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.
This Website uses Google Analytics. Google Analytics collects standard internet log information and details about traffic and visitor behaviour patterns. This information is not processed in a way that identifies individuals but is used for purposes such as evaluating the number of visitors over time and the popularity of certain blog posts. Also, information which the user has explicitly authorised Google to capture is what is stored in Google Analytics logs. For example, a user who hasn’t shared his demographic information with Google won’t have it logged under Analytics
This service is used for delivery of email updates and newsletters. We store your name and email address for purposes of delivering such communications.
How long do 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 do you have over your data
If you have left comments on this site, 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 do we send your data
Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.
How do we protect your data
Personal information that you provide via our third-party partners resides on a secure server and are accessible only via a password.
