Who we are
Our website address is: https://www.rudimartinsen.com. The site is privately owned and managed by Rudi Martinsen.
What personal data we collect and why we collect it
When visitors leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.
If you upload images to the website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the website.
If you leave a comment on our site you may opt-in to saving your name, email address and website in cookies. These are for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for one year.
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.
This site uses Google Analytics to track visitor statistics. Here’s what you need to know:
- No Personally Identifiable Information (PII) is sent to Google Analytics.
- IP addresses are anonymised and are not recorded.
- We comply with any Do Not Track browser settings (though these are browser dependant)
- You can opt out of Google Analytics using the button in the side bar.
- You can also opt out of Google Analytics tracking using this browser plugin
The site is also connected to Automattic’s JetPack service via WordPress.com
Data Used: IP address, WordPress.com user ID (if logged in), WordPress.com username (if logged in), user agent, visiting URL, referring URL, the timestamp of an event, browser language, country code. Important: The site owner does not have access to any of this information via this feature. For example, a site owner can see that a specific post has 285 views, but he/she cannot see which specific users/accounts viewed that post. Stats logs — containing visitor IP addresses and WordPress.com usernames (if available) — are retained by Automattic for 28 days and are used for the sole purpose of powering this feature.
Who we share your data with
You have the right to know if we share your data with a 3rd party. We do not and will not share data with any other 3rd party, under any circumstances.
How long we retain your data
If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.
What rights you have over your data
If you have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.
Where we send your data
Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service. Anonymised (non-identifiable) data is sent to Google Analytics and WordPress.com. No other data is sent to any other 3rd party.
