Who I am
https://threadandtherapy.com is run by me, Krystina. I’m just a simple human who is not smart enough to manipulate your personal data like major tech companies. But if you exist on the Internet in any capacity, you leave little data trails, so you should know how this information is used.
What personal data is collected and why
When visitors leave comments on the site, the following is collected: 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. Keep yourself safe!
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.
I use Google Analytics to track who visits this blog, how this site is used, what’s popular and not popular, and whether I have return visitors. I use this information to help shape my content and methods of promoting that content.
If you’d like to opt out of Google Analytics tracking, you can visit this site through your browser’s private session mode or download this browser extension, which works with a variety of browsers.
Who your data is shared with
No one. I’m not in cahoots with anyone.
How long your data is retained
If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so I 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 an account on this site, or have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data held about you, including any data you have provided. You can also request that any personal data held about you is erased. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes. So do not harass or dox anyone on this site.
Where your data is sent
Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.
