Analytics

I use Google Analytics to track website views and visitors indirectly. I use the data to understand how my website content is performing. My social media accounts are verified and connect to analytics as well for the same reason. To enable these features I agree to all of Google, Facebook, Pinterest, and Twitter’s Terms of Use. Please refer to these websites for more information about analytics and its uses. As I do not manipulate or hack the data in any way and is provided to me directly by logging in.

I use SendinBlue for my email marketing service and is used exclusively to collect emails. I do not at this time use any outside pop-ups, subscription landing pages or form boxes to collect and store data. I use Send In Blue because of their privacy and respect for email subscribers. Again, this service uses visitor data and direct click tracking to see how my email subscribers are related to my viewers. Through the use of web cookies, my email subscribers may be realized and connected as viewers directly which then allows me to know who visits, and who doesn’t.

I use this information to understand how loyal my followers are, and what originally brought them into my inner circle!

I must add that most of my subscribers, are my friends and I know and follow their blogs and email news as well! (After all, I am co-owner of the Blog Buddy Program!)

 

Commenting

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.

Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.

 

Website Plugins

As a self-hosted WordPress user, I have access to a number of plugins that help me to better provide an interactive and modern website. I only use plugins that are GDPR compliant, to name a few specifically:

Super Socializer

Click here to read how my social share plugin is GDPR Compliant.   Specifically, you may be able to use your Facebook to comment on this blog’s posts,”We embed a Facebook widget to allow you to see a number of likes/shares/recommends and “like/share/recommend” our web pages. This widget may collect your IP address, your web browser User Agent, store and retrieve cookies on your browser, embed additional tracking, and monitor your interaction with the widget, including correlating your Facebook account with whatever action you take within the widget (such as “liking/sharing/recommending” our webpage), if you are logged in to Facebook. For more information about how this data may be used, please see Facebook’s data privacy policy: https://www.facebook.com/about/privacy/update” 

 

Slimstat

A few users have reached out to us to ask if Slimstat would be compliant with the upcoming General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) guidelines and regulations that are about to be activated all across Europe. Based on our understanding of this new law, as long as the hosting provider where you are storing the information collected by Slimstat is GDPR compliant, then you won’t have to worry about any extra layers of compliance offered by software like ours. One of our primary goals is to make sure that you and only you are the sole owner of the data collected by our plugin. This has always been what makes Slimstat stand out from the crowd: while Jetpack, Google Analytics and many other services have full unrestricted access to the data they collect on your website, we at Slimstat don’t treat our users as the product that we sell to other companies. Also, starting with this update, our plugin honors the Do Not Track header (this feature can be turned off in the settings), and we introduced an experimental option to allow your users to opt out of tracking via a text box displayed. Please let us know if you notice any issues with these new features.
