Who I am

My website address is: https://jeremya.com, but you already knew that.


What personal data I collect and why I collect it

By default, I do not collect any personal data from you.


When visitors leave comments on the site I collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection. Comments are currently disabled in the user interface, so this will only affect bots and silly humans directly accessing well-known WordPress URLs. Please don’t.

Should a bot or silly human succeed in posting a comment, an anonymized string created from their 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 their comment, their profile picture is visible to the public in the context of the comment.

Contact form

Should you choose to fill in the contact form, I will collect only the information you type into the fields on the form. These include your name, your email address, and whatever inane text you may input into the comment field.


Should a bot or silly human succeed in leaving a comment on my site they may opt-in to saving their name, email address and website in cookies. These are for their convenience so that they can continue to spam me without having to fill in details again when they attempt to leave another comment. These cookies will last for one year.

If you have an account and you log in to this site, I will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.

When you log in, I will also set up several cookies to save your login information and your screen display choices. Login cookies last for two days, and screen options cookies last for a year. If you select “Remember Me”, your login will persist for two weeks. If you log out of your account, the login cookies will be removed.

If you edit or publish an article, an additional cookie will be saved in your browser. This cookie includes no personal data and simply indicates the post ID of the article you just edited. It expires after 1 day.

Embedded content from other websites

Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.

These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracking your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.


I collect no analytics


Who I share your data with

No one.


How long I retain your data

If a bot or silly human succeeds in leaving a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so I can recognize and approve (most likely reject or mark as spam) any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.

For users that register on my website (that would only be me and no one else), I also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). The website administrator (that’s Jeremy) can also see and edit that information. Fortunately, it’s only Jeremy’s information.


Where I send your data

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