By navigating through two or more pages on calumchilds.com, you agree to this policy, which describes who collects your data, where it goes and why.
When you visit the site, we will log your IP address. This also happens when you make a comment on our blog, only it is tied with your name and email. This is for security reasons.
If you don't want Google Analytics to track you, do one or all of the following:
Desktop: Click here to install a Google Analytics Opt-Out plugin for your browser. This means data won't be collected about your visit(s) to sites with Google Analytics.
Mobile: Install an app that blocks trackers. We recommend BlockBear, or just use an app such as DuckDuckGo ( | ) to browse the internet, which blocks trackers by default.
The analytics software collects the pages you visited, how you found this site (search, direct entry etc.), where you're visiting us from (this is determined by the language option you set for your browser), how long you spent on each page, device information (operating system, model etc.) and any search queries you carried out using our site search engine.
You can opt-out from Matomo without having to install any plugins or whatnot on your browser. Just follow the instructions in the box below:
(If you're on a mobile device or you can't click the checkbox for whatever reason, click the button below to take you to the opt-out page.)Matomo Opt-Out Page
COPPA (Children Online Privacy Protection Act)
This website isn't aimed at children under 13 and we don't knowingly collect any personal information from under 13s. If we are made aware of any personal information from minors, we'll delete it.
For some of our services, we may collect some of your personal information (name, email etc.) We will never display your email address, but we may display your name (as part of a comment.) Unless it says you have to use your real name, you can use a made-up name, providing it's clean and not offensive (eg. Wingo5315.)
Sharing your personal information
We will never sell your information to third parties. However, we will share your information when we're required to do so by law, but we doubt this would be the case since we don't store much of your personal info.
You can ask us to:
- Send you a copy of all the data we have on you. Simply contact us using the email address below with your name and email address and we'll gather all the data up and send it to you. Please remember that you may receive an email from another email address asking you to confirm this request.
- Delete all the data we have on you. Again, simply contact us with your name and email address and we'll delete your data within 30 days. We'll let you know when this is done - please note this will also delete any comments you have made on any blog posts etc, unless you ask us to keep those in the deletion email, in which case we'll change the name to "Anonymous".
You can ask us to do the following regardless of what country you live in. The email address you need to contact is firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject "Please (send/delete) my data" with your name and email address in the message.
DNT (Do Not Track)
We don't currently respect DNT requests... yet. We're hoping to do so in the future.
