Service Providers

I may employ third party companies and individuals to facilitate my Service (“Service Providers”), to provide the blog or related services on my behalf, to perform Service-related services or to assist me in analyzing how the blog is used.

These third parties have access to your Personal Data only to perform these tasks on my behalf and are obligated not to disclose or use it for any other purpose.


I may use third-party Service Providers to monitor and analyze the use of my blog.

  • Google Analytics is a web analytics service offered by Google that tracks and reports website traffic. Google uses the data collected to track and monitor the use of our Service. This data is shared with other Google services. Google may use the collected data to contextualize and personalize the ads of its own advertising network. You can opt-out of having made your activity on the Service available to Google Analytics by installing the Google Analytics opt-out browser add-on or configure your browser to send a do-not-track request, which I respect and effectively block any tracking pixel from loading. The add-on prevents the Google Analytics JavaScript (ga.js, analytics.js, and dc.js) from sharing information with Google Analytics about visits activity.

Links To Other Sites

My blog may contain links to other sites that are not operated by me. If you click on a third party link, you will be directed to that third party’s site. We strongly advise you to review the Privacy Policy of every site you visit.

I have no control over and assume no responsibility for the content, privacy policies or practices of any third party sites or services.

Embedded content from third-parties

My blog may include embedded content such as videos pictures or text snippets etc. from third-party content providers such as youtube, facebook, google or others. The embedded content behaves exactly as if it were consumed directly from the third-party page by you. Be aware that many third-party pages drop cookie data I can not take responsibility of and have no control upon. Feel free to block such cookies but be aware that it might stop the content from rendering, depending on the internal technical dependencies the third-party content provider might have. Additional tracking services might be used by such content providers that track any interaction applying to the content, including your interactions if you happened to have an account with the external content provider and were logged-in (facebook for example).

Children’s Privacy

My blog does not address anyone under the age of 18 (“Children”).

I do not knowingly collect personally identifiable information from anyone under the age of 18. If you are a parent or guardian and you are aware that your Children has provided me with Personal Data, please contact me. If I become aware that I have collected Personal Data from children without verification of parental consent, I take steps to remove that information from the servers.

Changes To This Privacy Policy

I may update our Privacy Policy from time to time. I will notify you of any changes by posting the new Privacy Policy on this page.

I will let you know via email and/or a prominent notice on my blog, prior to the change becoming effective and update the “effective date” at the top of this Privacy Policy.

You are advised to review this Privacy Policy periodically for any changes. Changes to this Privacy Policy are effective when they are posted on this page.
