Who am I?
I’m Sarah (www.cerealsarah.com) and I write on this blog! If you’re looking at this, you’re either just clicking through or making sure that I’m following the rules (I am, mostly. Well at least in terms of GDPR legislation and the FTC.)
The FTC? What’s that?
What do I collect?
Personally? Nothing. Although I do collect notes from Countries I’ve been too, nifty? Yeah. Online, I do have access to your Name and Email via comments or if you subscribe to the blog and this is only used for interaction across WordPress. If you’re logged into the platform, data may be recorded. I will never disclose your information, nor will I send you spam/unofficial emails. Information may be kept for ongoing operations of the site. I’m pretty into privacy myself, so I’m pretty into your privacy too.
Other ways information is collected is through cookies, analytics and some third party embeds. Some plugins may also collect some personal data.
Data reminds me of Excel spreadsheets, that’s not what i’m talking about. I’m talking about things that link you to the internet. I have access to statistics for CerealSarah. This means, I can see how many views a page has, clicks to external/internal links and which countries have visited. Information logged by WordPress can gather Internet Protocol Addresses (IP) or Internet Service Providers (ISP) , Types of browsers (Safari, Mozilla or if you’re old school – Internet Explorer.) Things like date and time stamps as well as referring and exit pages are things I also can see. When we say personal data, I of course cannot see specific personally identifiable data but a spectrum of analytics that tell me a little bit more about my readers (it’s mainly Australia, and it’s mainly me.)
Comments and Contact Forms.
Sometimes I may link to affiliate pages – I will have a bracket (affiliate) to ensure that you’re super aware which products I’ve popped a lil link in – this doesn’t cost you anything but, it can however, give me a percentage if you sign up through those. I still use those products and pay for them, however I can sometimes get a discount as well which is kinda nifty. If you want to know more – please email me!
Although most changes are likely to be minor, I may change our policy from time to time. Always check back for any changes and if you’re reading this blog I take it as acceptance of this disclaimer.
