Who we are

This is the private blog of Ilona and Gábor. Our website address is: https://ilonagabor.de. The site is hosted on a private amateur server in Hamburg, Germany and is fully operated by us.

What personal data we collect and why we collect it

Most of the following is based on the privacy policy template provided by WordPress. As a general principle, we do not purposefully collect or store any personal data about visitors of this site, except for what you explicitly share with us by commenting, etc.

Comments

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.

An anonymized 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.

Media

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.

Analytics

We collect statistical information about visitors to our site, as well as single pages and blog entries on this site for feedback purposes. We do this to see where we can improve this website. We identify separate visitors based on their IP address, however these IP addresses our immediately hashed (anonymized), so they cannot be used to identify visitors any more. We do not collect location data about visitors. The collected anonymous data is stored for 30 days locally on our server and then deleted. We do not share this information with anyone.
