# What Personal Data Is Collected And Why? #
My site collects my visitor’s specs (IP address, browser build, OS, origin country, search engine and search words used) to help me understand my audience and their needs better.
If you don’t want to help me make my site run better for you and bring you content you are interested in, you can opt out by using the prompt that shows up. If you do decide to opt-out of any future tracking, a cookie will be set up in your browser to remember this choice for one year.
When visitors leave comments on the site I collect the data shown in the comments form, the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.
If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so my site can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.
Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.
In case you send me an inquiry via any of my contact forms, its database will store your e-mail, name and message, so I can reply to you.
If you contact me for any short term purposes (e.g. question, bug report etc.), your data will me removed once our interaction is completed. If you signed up for a newsletter instead, your data will remain with me until you decide to unsubscribe from the list.
When using my Tip Jar, the system will collect your e-mail, name, the amount paid and the date of the payment. The information will be stored indefinitely, however, if you are not okay with that, I have the option to anonymize your personal data.
