First and foremost, I will never share your email address or any other personal information to anyone without your direct consent. Period.
Like many other websites, I use log files to help learn about when, from where, and how often traffic flows to this site. The information in the log files include:
- Internet Protocol addresses (IP)
- Types of browser
- Internet Service Provider (ISP)
- Date and time stamp
- Referring and exit pages
- Number of clicks
All of this information is not linked to anything that is personally identifiable.
Like nearly all blogs, this site stores “convenience” cookies on your computer whenever you leave a comment. The cookies record the name, email address, and URL that you enter when you submit a comment so that you won’t have to re-type that info the next time you leave a comment.
Third-party advertisers may also place and read cookies on your browser and/or use web beacons to collect information. AndreasHelbig.com has no access or control over these cookies. You should review the respective privacy policies on any and all third-party ad servers for more information regarding their practices and how to opt-out.
If you wish to disable cookies, you may do so through your web browser options. Instructions for doing so and for other cookie-related management can be found on the specific web browsers’ websites.
Google Analytics is a web analytics tool I use to help understand how visitors engage with this website. It reports website trends using cookies and web beacons without identifying individual visitors. You can read more at the Google Analytics Privacy Overview. You may also prevent the collection of usage data by installing a web browser plug-in, which can be downloaded here: http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en
Users may choose to receive email blog updates via a service provided by a company called MailChimp, by submitting an email address (and optional name) to the email subscription form. I use their secure double opt-in subscription system and I reserve the right to contact subscribers with information related to this website and blog. Subscribers may unsubscribe anytime and every email delivered will contain an “Unsubscribe” link.
When leaving a comment, users must submit a name and email address. To combat spam, the blogging platform I use for this site also records the IP address of anyone submitting a comment.
Again, none of this information will be shared with anyone without your direct permission.
