My security dragons read my mail, btw. They don’t like spam, and they don’t like nasty things. They breathe fire at those.

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.

An anonymized string created from your email address (also called a hash) may be provided to the Gravatar service to see if you are using it. The Gravatar service privacy policy is available here: After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.


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.

But honestly, there’s no need to upload pics to my website. The ones I want up there I upload myself.


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.

If you have an account and you log in to this site, we will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.

When you log in, we will also set up several cookies to save your login information and your screen display choices. Login cookies last for two days, and screen options cookies last for a year. If you select “Remember Me”, your login will persist for two weeks. If you log out of your account, the login cookies will be removed.

If you edit or publish an article, an additional cookie will be saved in your browser. This cookie includes no personal data and simply indicates the post ID of the article you just edited. It expires after 1 day.

However, I will not be sharing our secret recipe for dragon cookies.

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.

These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracing your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.

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.

For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.

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 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.

Your contact information

You can reach me in my function as data protection officer and privacy guard under this email: hannah[at]

You might see dragons circling. Never mind them, they are only watching for crooks.

Additional information

How we protect your data

There are a few fierce and fire-breathing dagons ready to defend your data with their lives. They take turns circling the server space and watching any activity.

In addition, I’ve made log-in and password protection as high as I can, and there are additional measures to prevent hacking. I hope this will protect any data from you that’s stored on this website, especially if you posted a comment.

And this is the best I can do for now. I’m an author and dragon trainer (and sometimes therapist and coach), but not a programmer. Nor a doctor, unfortunately.

What data breach procedures we have in place.

In case of a data breach, I will send my dragons to punish… well, never mind that.

I will notify you personally within 72 hours of learning about a breach, if I have any contact information stored. If not, there will also be a public announcement on the blog.
