Privacy Policy

I use WordPress software to publish Data from the Home Office and the Jetpack system to manage widgets, stats, and my contact form. What does that mean to you? Information related to your IP address is shared to determine your geographic location. Cookies are also used when you comment on posts, which helps WordPress keep spam out of the comments section. If you regularly comment on the blog, these cookies save your name and email address so that you do not have to fill them out each time you comment. These cookies last one year unless you clear your cookie cache in your browser. I can also export to you and erase your personal data by your request using WordPress’s data management tools. If you want more information about how Automattic (WordPress’ and JetPack’s parent company) complies with the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), take a look at the following sites:

I also use a few third-party plugins to prevent spam comments on media files. These plugins are beholden to the Automattic privacy policy for developers, they should not be collecting your data. If I find that they are doing shady stuff behind my back, though, I will remove them from the site.
