Personal data is stored following your explicit interactions with this website. In addition, personal data is also collected from technical processes, such as comments, use of contact form, cookies, analytics, and third-party embeds. These are described in more detail in the following sections.
As a visitor when you leave comments on the website the owner collects the data shown in the comments form. The CMS also collects the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection. For a visitor not logged in with WordPress.org, the fields in the form – name, email, comments and website – are all voluntary and the visitor can choose what to share.
As a visitor when you use the contact form your name and email address, together with your message, will be sent to the website owner’s email address. This data is collected in order to be able to respond to the submitted message.

The objective is to make the site analytics free, even if it comes at the expense of visibility in search engine optimisation (SEO).

All cache files are temporary, and are never accessed by any third party, except as necessary to obtain technical support from the cache plug-in vendor. Cache files expire on a schedule set by the site administrator, but may easily be purged by the admin before their natural expiration, if necessary.
