What personal data is collect and why is it collected


When visitors leave comments on blog, the data displayed in the comment form as well as the visitor’s IP address and browser string are collected to help detect spam.

An anonymous string created from your email address (also called “hash”) can be provided to Gravatar to see if you use it. The Gravatar Privacy Policy is available here: Once the written comment has been approved, the profile image is visible to the public in the context of the comment, and that’s it. The collected data will not be further processed.


If you upload images to your site, you should avoid uploading images with built-in embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Blog visitors can download and extract any location data from blog images.

All articles containing pictures / videos have the source in the description, and those that do not specify the source belong to the personal archive and are covered by the copyright – see the Terms and Conditions page.

Embedded content from other websites

Embedded content from other sites.
Some of the articles from blog may include embedded content (e.g., videos, images, etc.). Content embedded on other sites behaves exactly the same way as if the visitor visited the other site.

These sites may collect data about you, use the cookie, incorporate third-party tracking, and monitor interaction with embedded content, including tracking your interaction with embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that site.


How long is your data retained

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are kept indefinitely. This is to be able to recognize and approve any subsequent comments automatically, without keeping them in a handled queue.

For readers who fill the contact form on my blog, the personal information you provide on your user profile will also be stored. All users can view, edit or delete their personal information at any time (except that they can not change their username). I, Ana Maria Popa, as blog administrator, can also see and edit that information.

I, Ana Maria Popa, do not disclose your personal data to any third party and do not register with you without newsletter or other types of communication.
The only exceptional situation in which I would disclose your personal data would be if the Terms and Conditions of the blog are violated in any way and will be requested by the authorities (Police, etc.).
