Privacy Policy

What is a Privacy Policy?

  • A Privacy Policy is a statement that discloses some or all of the ways a website gathers, uses, discloses, and manages a customer or client’s data. A privacy policy can also feature a legal statement
  • Privacy is the ability of an individual or group to seclude themselves or information about themselves and thereby express themselves selectively. When something is private to a person, it usually means that something is inherently special or sensitive to them
  • Under the GDPR legislation, I am required to inform you about why I processing your data and for how long I will store it, etc. I must tell you in plain and clear words how I use this data. One of the easiest ways to stay transparent and inform my users is through this Privacy Policy.
  • The contact form on the contact page has a radio-check box that requires visitors to confirm they have read this policy. This simple procedure ensures I have met GDPR legislation. I thus can’t be held responsible if someone checks the radio-check box and sends me an e-mail, without first having read this Private Policy statement.
  • A Privacy policy is sometimes called data protection provisions.

GDPR

  • According to the GDPR, organisations must provide people with a privacy policy that is concise, transparent, intelligible, and easily accessible form. Written in clear and plain language, particularly for any information addressed specifically to a child. Delivered in a timely manner.

Security

I take security very seriously.

  • This website does NOT have a contact page because spammers and spambots use it to send rubbish!
  • I have changed the URL of the login page. It is NOT the typical WordPress URL
  • I use a very complex password
  • I use two-factor authorisation to log into my website. This requires a code that is sent to my mobile phone.
  • I use HTTPS
  • My website can track the IP address of anyone trying to hack this website. Those URLs are then blocked permanently
